Weaving for the Soul

BY RENÉ BAHLOO
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

“I have shared my deepest essence, my creative energy, and so the world is dream into being”

In Weaving for the Soul from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol.18 , René Bahloo explains her special interest as an artist in the practice and philosophy of weaving, using natural plant fibres. She shares her knowledge locally through a number of weaving circles and facilitates transformational journeys to remote Indigenous Australian and African communities, for deep connection to land, culture, healing and traditional weaving. Her sculptural installation pieces have been present at a number of conferences and have also been discovered contemplating life, the universe and everything. In her presentation Rene shares her passion for connecting culture, womens' business, personal growth and environmental awareness into the weaving of her life, and into the lives of others.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on September 27th, 2016.
