To honour your soul is to accept yourself, to be courageous and vulnerable, to share your story with an open heart, to embrace life with all its complex forms.
Although fulfilled mentally for many years by her work as an inspector for the well-being of children, she felt her soul was dying from a lack of self expression. So she quit her job to connect to her soul without knowing how. She began searching for her own voice in the art world and quickly made a connection between her art and soul healing. As an artist her work stems from her personal chronology combined with research and games of imagination. She accepted her identity and upon her move to Cluj, Romania Ruth also mobilised an informal group called LES Sisterhood Cluj, the first group of LGBT women in Romania. Courage means vulnerability, said Brene Brown. It means to embrace all your uncomfortable feeling, to fully understand them and in the end to heal them in an authentic way. Courage is not a constant part of our lives and it does not come by itself. You must take decisions in a conscious way and assume them. You must believe in what you truly are and claim your place in the world, change the believes forced by your family, society, and break barriers, and build a world according to your vision. In the end Ruth challenged us to do a creative exercise answer the following: ‘But don’t I deserve it? Don’t I deserve to live freely, to express myself according to my own believes, to find out what I truly like and to walk with confidence towards my dreams.
