  • A Healing Path to a More Creative Life

    To achieve or maintain a sustainable, thriving creative practice, you will experience a “crooked path”. Many of us have suffered so many disappointments and difficulties along the way —both small and large— that we are left with what we call a “damaged heart” or “inner child” that needs repair. This damaged part of us can generate experiences that range from simple feelings of burn out to a total collapse of productivity. In extreme cases, various forms of self-sabotage can emerge that impact our overall well-being. We may have struggled for years to overcome criticisms, or even outright assaults, to our creative identity, efforts, and outcomes. We may yearn for the significant portion of our artistic desire, inner strength, and creative potency that appears to have been lost or never found. The journey to restore your Creative Potential will mend the “Broken Artist” that dwells inside you. You will renew your hopes and dreams, as well as engage your challenges and shortcomings. It is an inner journey of earnest self-discovery, where you must face fearlessly the heroic tests you find there. Fortunately, there is a holistic process —Holistic Creativity— to follow that will help you heal your Heart, Soul, Mind, and Body and restore you to wholeness. If you undertake this transformational journey with devotion and discipline, you can repair and restore the inner wellspring that fuels your artistic capabilities. Expand your current horizons and reach amazing new possibilities! This live, highly interactive, small-sized class provides ample opportunity for you to receive personalized attention, while learning to engage the universal principles of healing that impact all creative people.
  • Reiki Sound Baths

They can be a profound experience and are excellent for opening the heart space. Most people describe the experience as cleansing or clearing, and very relaxing. During a Sound Bath, participants typically lie on a yoga mat while the sound healers serenade them with various healing instruments, including a *Gong*, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, drums, tuning forks, rain sticks and more.
