Greetings! I'm Bill Ressl, 🧑🎨 self-taught artist, 🌐 international author, and Co-Founder of the Center to Awaken Kindness. My 👩❤️👨 wife, Penny Taylor, and I started the Center to cultivate 🛀 self-care and ❤️ love. We encourage an exploration of the human Spirit toward new possibilities through mindful contemplative self-care practices and products. My original spiritual and religious artwork in the Awaken Kindness Marketplace is designed to support a sacred mindful journey of active awareness toward new realities. Each piece uniquely speaks of my lived experiences of being raised 🛐 Roman Catholic and being 🕊️ led by the Spirit to become a 😎 Protestant Minister. Many pieces are uniquely religious, spiritual, retro, and playful - while others encourage the celebration of Christmas, eco awareness, and an entry into a Gnome fantasy world.
From my earliest years I loved to doodle and ✏️ draw. During high school my father who was a printer taught me how to run offset printing presses. Soon, I was designing and printing my own line of 🖃 Bill Ressl Cachets (1970/80s - a number still available online). Many of my friends thought I would one day be an artist - but different paths emerged. First it was college and ⚖️ law school, then a stint in the 1990s as an 🧺 American wicker weaver (I am an Illinois Artisan), later as a Pastor and into the academy to 🧑🏫 teach. Today I am returning to my roots by integrating my ❤️🎨 love of art, in particular custom labyrinth art designs, social justice, and environmental concerns with my expertise in theology, neo-Jungian thought, and clinical social work.
We are 😎 Bill Ressl and 😎 Penny Taylor 🦋 “Doctors of the Soul” and the Co-Founders of the Center to Awaken Kindness. Yes, we are 🕊️ Ordained Ministers in the United Church of Christ (UCC) where we are known as the Rev. Dr. Bill Ressl, LCSW and the Rev. Dr. Penny Taylor, LCSW. Online we’re also known as “da” Revs @DaRevsUSA (Yep, we're from the Chicago area USA where "da” is often substituted for “the").
Together we create unique 🎧 podcasts, classic mindful 📺 video shows, 👨🏫 online courses, and many wonderful 🛍️ products for all ages offered through Society6.
