Master Intuition Painting® Facilitator
The first place I felt fully expressed as was in an intuitive arts painting studio, where I could explore my imagination, connect with my emotional self, and reveal a unique visual voice. The imagery that appeared awakened a fresh zest for living.
Using this process of expressing authentically with images and colors, I have reawakened the artist I left behind in childhood, decoded mysteries from dream-like imagery, and developed a thirst for openness and wholeness in my life.
Everyone was born to create, to live life with passion and zest. When we were children, we automatically colored and expressed spontaneously with joy and great imagination - but most of us lost that capacity.
So, what happened?
Our 'left brain' culture trains and rewards us for linear and logical activities such a reading, writing and arithmetic, but does not evenly encourage non-linear, intuitive processing - - key elements for true creativity and problem-solving. The one-sided approach is not ideal, as both sides of the brain are integral to optimal mental functioning.
Through painting, dance, music and other creative modes, we can learn to strengthen our right brain and improve our whole brain processing.
I accept a limited number of clients each month and provide a personalized experience for each one. It’s a collaborative process that includes self-observation, introspection, creativity, and action.
To set up a non-obligatory consultation, please schedule a 30 minute session.
Certifications include and eighteen month training program in Transformational Life Coaching with The Life Coaching Institute, and a two year Transformational Process Arts training certification with PFTS.
