Flying Edna is a company that creates reminders, permission slips, invitations and talismans in the form of cards, prints, calendars, books & projects yet to be created.
Our three tenets are: beginner's mind, fair exchange, and attentional balance.
We license the work of artists who share our commitment to radical inclusivity, interconnectedness & telling stories that inspire others towards a life they love.
And because we care about partnering with you and with the planet, we choose environmentally conscious and sustainable choices in our products & practices here in the studio. Check out our product information page to learn more.
Our workshops & coaching are a unique integration of principles based on over 20 years of exploration in the studio & on stage. Originally designed for professional performance, this work has been adapted for wellness & grace in daily living.
the story of Edna & why she flies
words from fia j. skye
Early in my teaching career, I received a gift from a student: Women of Discovery: a Celebration of Intrepid Women Who Explored the World. The book was filled with pages of women who changed the landscape of the world, simply by being all of who they were (which often meant not being who others thought they should be).
This book reminds me of the women I've come to trust for guidance & inspiration & honest feedback throughout my life. Pathfinders. And though not all of them will be chronicled in the history books, each took the world she inherited & changed the rules for all of us with fierce grace & an unwillingness to be silent when it mattered most.
This book of extraordinary women has traveled with me on countless journeys, a talisman of a sorts, a permission slip, a reminder that possibility is infinite & taking action is required.
As my life began to shift in a hundred different ways I never anticipated, I found myself taking the time to listen to that bone-deep voice inside - the voice each of us has in a tone only we can hear.
That voice is funny, direct, raw & unfettered, always heading me in a direction that is unexpected & entirely my own...
If that voice had a name, I imagine it would be Edna Mercury.
Flying Edna for short.
Why does she fly….?
Because she can.
