Art has the ability to awaken the Viewer and the Creator into a more vibrantly embodied, fulfilling reality.
The act of connecting with art cultivates deep presence: noticing and receiving what an image, sound, poem, person, or place elicits within the mind, body, and emotions.
The act of expressing through art serves as a vehicle or pathway for embodying growth and transformation from within.
Through this union of presence and inspired expression, we become more of who we are: awakening to more of our gifts, our joy, our power, and our potential to dream and create a new reality into existence, beginning from within.
My multi-decade journey of transformation through the yoga of mindful creative expression is what fuels my enthusiasm and passion for sharing the gifts of this practice through teaching, coaching, and public speaking, as well as through sharing my visual creations with those who are seeking beautiful, medicinal reminders of their innate power and co-creative potential.
The word "art", in this sense, extends beyond drawing and painting: it represents a state of being that awakens personal power, fulfillment, joy, and deep, inner connection.
Witness the creation of the scarf that I'm wearing here.
