The Gift of Risk

Every week, Express Yourself!™ will bring you a stimulating program based on a chapter from our award winning book Be the Star You Are!® for Teens. (http://www.starstyleradio.com/#!

Deepen your spiritual connection to the earth and rejoin the community of nature when Asya and Zahra interview artist and author Lupa for her newest book, Nature Spirituality from the Ground Up. As she explores nature, Lupa risked all to keep grounded. The Gift of Risk penned by Libby Gill from the book, Be the Star You Are!® for TEENS, offers real life exercises to stretch and grow daily. Art Attack Reporter, Brigitte Jia brings another fascinating monologue on the risks that artists take to reveal their inner spirit with their works. Why did Andy Warhol paint tomato soup cans?  “It’s not because things are difficult that we dare not venture. It’s because we dare not venture that they are difficult.”-Seneca

Bio:

Lupa, aka, Green Wolf, is an author, artist and amateur naturalist in Portland, OR. She is the author of several books on nature-based spirituality, most recently Nature Spirituality From the Ground Up: Connect With Totems In Your Ecosystem. More about Lupa may be found at http://www.thegreenwolf.com
