Critical Time for Gratitude and Activism

Sending Us All Deep Love and AppreciationAnd Reasons to be Thankful!!!

I am so thankful to be a part of such a powerful profession that is all about honoring the individual, supporting diversity, creating health, and seeing beauty everywhere.  I offer that each one of us can take peace in knowing that we are aligned and active in our values and our passions.  This is such a priceless part of my reality and I hope yours.  I invite us all to breath this and live this with confidence.  Thank you all for being Art Therapists!  You are Beautiful and the Light of the World.  I am grateful to call you my colleagues and friends.

I am writing to remind you of the opportunity to be active and to serve this world in a positive way, by nominating yourself or someone else for position on NMATA’s Board of Directors.  Nominations will close at midnight on next Monday, Nov 28.

Another reminder:  Please attend our last Membership Meeting of 2016!!
December 10, 10:30-12:30, @ Deborah Good’s home

We will be exchanging gifts, and if you are not able to make something before hand, we will has an art station set up for art making.  This will be a pot luck; so if you can bring something to share, but if not please come anyway.  We will review the year, project into next, and spend time appreciating and gifting each other.

Also, we will be accepting donations for our fund raising efforts at that meeting.  We will be having a holiday booth at the Railyard in Santa Fe, Dec 22 and 23.  Any art you would care to donate will be greatly appreciated.  What does not sell there will be sold at the AATA conference next year.  Your donations are tax deductible.

I encourage you to take this time to confirm and rededicate your values and what you are grateful for.  Remember, the vibration of gratitude is a powerful creative force.  Affirm the very best of yourselves, your loved ones and your lives and celebrate a Happy Thanksgiving!
With Great Gratitude,
