Gentleness Clears The Soul oil on canvas by Claire Cansick

Gentleness Clears The Soul

Two of my forest paintings are in the latest Resurgence & Ecologist magazine published by the Resurgence Trust illustrating an article on reforestation by Merlin Hanbury-Tenison.

‘Our theme for this issue takes us straight to what feels like the pages of a book of fairytales, but these are tales with a serious message of hope, enchantment and purpose. From a poetic ‘ode’ to a humble fern to the enchanting story of a dress made entirely from nettles, we explore ways to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. We look at the oft times dark path to enchantment and learn how the human psyche craves meaning. The invitation here then is to lose yourself in an uplifting theme that will take you to the edges of your own imagination and hopeful visions for 2024.’

In the Slow Read, the modern mystic, author and thought leader, Andrew Harvey, tells our editor Susan Clark that all is not lost and that what he calls ‘the Great Shattering’ that looms will be our breakthrough to a new consciousness and a new idea of what it means to be a new human being on a new earth.

I have to admit I hadn’t heard of the magazine before their contact with me about the paintings, it is a beautifully produced and ethical read.
