"At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity."
-Rachel Naomi Remen, MD
Transmutation -- Mixed Media Collage | Bringing together the puzzle pieces called life,
honoring and claiming them transforms a shattered existence into one of wholeness.
My authentic self is passionate and most happy when creating, expressing, experiencing my body, nature and art. I value communicating deeply with this level of authenticity, as well as with others who are on a similar journey.
My fragmented self believed otherwise, thus the journey to whole-making began. I came home to my physical body through massage and bodywork, kundalini yoga and long walks in nature. I came home to my emotional body through expressive art and transformative healing.
These are my daily practices.
Through the process of SoulCollage® I learn about the many sub-personalities and archetypal patterns active within me. Through the practice of creating these wisdom cards I continue to explore and reclaim all of my parts of self.
With the JourneyCircles™ I find a deeper connection and relationship with the more inherent subtle energies. Creating with the rich and ancient symbolism of the mandala and the chakras, evoke a deeper connection and understanding of spirit and the creative life force.
Both of these creative modalities provide me with expansive expression, intuitive connecting and joy.
Physical, emotional or mental suffering causes us pain and dis-ease. We feel fragmented and experience unhappiness.
Healing is a process that begins with acceptance of what is. It requires a commitment to the many choices available to us to affect change.
Kundalini Yoga, SoulCollage® and the JourneyCircles™ Creative Mapping Process are philosophies which work together to facilitate healing and creativity.
Creativity and expression thereof supports our search for wholeness and the need to eliminate suffering as we cultivate life as art.
