I believe we are all artists.
Our creations are born from our sacred physical-emotional-mental & spiritual-energetic being-ness.
I have a very intimate relationship with the art making process and all that is moved and created through it.
Drawing, painting, writing, sounding-singing and moving-dancing, are powerful instruments available to us to explore and express our physical-emotional-mental & spiritual-energetic being, and life experiences.
In the Intermodal Expressive Arts Therapy Universe, art creations are Soul Messengers, who come to support us in our journey of being whole.
For example, a simple scribble charged with dark-dense words that springs out from the core of our anger, could be all we need to express and release this fire energy safely; and, it could create more inner space for using this raw force to align our actual life choices with our true preferences.
I love all the arts, and am deeply grateful for their healing gifts and support through my life path.
They have been my greatest ally during the most challenging times of my life - like the sudden tragic death of my beloved father and blue soul friend, while living far away from him.
Layered Soul Art is the art-making process I love and practice. It honors the birth-life-death-rebirth cycle, which powers all existence. It was born because one day it became crystal clear to me, that art creations can also die, and have the right and desire to be reborn too!
Layered Soul Art is an art making process where we have an intimate relationship with our Soul Messenger–Creation. We create sacred space to allow its birth, and invite and honor all its unique elements, colors, texture, words, sounds and movements. We play with it and heal, as we remember and reclaim one or many lost fragment(s) from our Soul World.
Awe takes over me, every time I experience the healing power our devotion, trust, and deep listening art making journeys have. Soul Messengers can move our physical –emotional-mental and spiritual energy when we are open and willing to receive their offerings. Shape- shifting, transmuting and magically remembering on different levels of our being what we need, to move through our present cluster of resistance-blocks-dis-ease, are all natural possibilities when we engage in authentic Layered Soul Art.
I like depth and intimate-personal relationships with everything: the Infinite within and in all that is, art creations, my beloved family, nature, food, herbs, cacao and all beings in all worlds.
In The Purple Star Process, we use Layered Soul Art to explore-express & empower our physical-emotional-mental & spiritual Self.
I love Layered Soul Art and look forward to sharing it with you !
