Silly Dog Studios & Ritual Mischief

Just outside the west edge of Langley on Whidbey Island, between the wise woods, always-changing sea, and some cool owls, eagles, and horses, sits Silly Dog Studios & Ritual Mischief. We’re a working photography studio, a working herbalist’s studio, a working writer’s office, and host to small workshops, pop-up makers markets, and other community gatherings.

We’re about…
Deepening relationships among land, forests, plants, and people. Learning to stand in our power as sensitive beings of this place. Embracing our emotional and spiritual place and selves. Finding and offering the world… Wonder. Creativity. Curiosity. Sanctuary. Photography. Herbalism. Poetry. Playful community. Emotional support. Living as makers and artists as integral parts of the environment. Loving the local. Talking with trees. Singing with frogs. Sillying with dogs. Kindness practice and boundary setting with cats. Wandering with neighbor birds and deer, and the occaisional dragon. The peace within all emotions. Listening well and believing neighbors, ancestors, and selves, especially when in pain. And offering extra every chance we get to those hurting and most hurt by long-stale systems, ideas, and beliefs.

In 2013, after speaking about some experience from booting up our local Fab Lab, an audience member interested is starting such a space asked “Very briefly can you tell me the three most important things needed to set up a local fab lab/makerspace/hackerspace?” My unhesitating answer was, “community, community, community”. Kane and all her friends are walking this “community, community, community” walk in a fearless way I’ve never personally even approached. You go, guys!

Thanks again. We had such a great time, as usual. I’m so happy we were able to spend some one on one time together. I always deeply enjoy the time I get to spend with you. I find you both to be wonderful role models.

I just wanted to let you know how important it was for me to hear the interview with Lori Kane, and say thank you. I have felt immobilized since the election and could not understand it. I have experienced the range of emotions as described by Lori and just could not make the connection between all that and my creativity and ability to get out and shoot or even process photos. And have not had one single person in my life able to help me understand it and make some connection. Hearing this episode was life changing. Had no idea others have felt the same! So healing! Thanks much.
