My Point of View
I believe we can all access a higher conscious state of being through emotional and body wisdom, expressive arts, connection to nature, and therapeutic experiences.
I believe that modern medical practices lack the depths to respond to the simple needs of the human psyche and soul:
That we are most well when we are connected to the natural world and with our creative selves.
I facilitate art and nature-based transformational experiences for the purposes of self-care, emotional health and well-being, problem-solving, personal peace, healing, and creative expression. No art experience or skills necessary.
I coach and ground individuals dealing with grief & other human experiences which includes talk therapy, art therapy, generative practices, nature therapy, and intuition/inner wisdom strengthening.
I also offer joyful and liberating art workshops and events for all-age communities and teams, beginner to advanced, focusing on watercolours, one-line drawing, and alcohol inks.
Authentic, loving connections with ourselves, expressing our stories, learning new skills, and exchanging energy are essential for a creative life.
Some have lost this due to the pandemic. Some have lost it sometime after childhood or soon after we had families or careers. Some of us feel like we’ve never had it.
I offer creative experiences that help you feel alignment with who you are and who you are meant to be.
The Creative Life
To fully live a creative life, we must engage in authentic expression, personal growth, wisdom, community, risk, and wild adventure. We must test our hair-brained schemes, answer the calls, perform acts of courage, conquer new terrain, choose our own safe places and rituals, move & shake, listen to our bodies, and give ourselves permission to be who we really are.
This creates expansion in our consciousness and ultimately the expansion of the human collective.
Our vocations, hobbies, interests, and professions are not who we are. They are what we commit to in order to stay in alignment of our higher purpose. They give us feedback on our true essence.
