Event Details

The greatest healer in your life resides within you. Listen to the teachings and wisdom from inside, slowing down enough so we can tap into these creative forces.

Let’s come together to combine the power of Yoga and Medicine Art! We are harnessing our creative energy that allows us to gain confidence and see our own truth, wisdom, and Spirit. Through a gentle yet powerful Hatha Yoga flow, we will relax into the loving intelligence of the body to reconnect with our true essence. From there I will guide you into a journey inward designed to release blockages of criticism that bound our creativity. Here is where we access even more of our own magic, allowing our natural childlike wonder and wild imaginations to blossom and flourish!

This Inner Journey leads us into the Art Activation, where we bring the inner wellspring of inspiration (inner spirit) to life in front of our very own eyes. Acrylics, markers, colored pencils, and pens will all become our magic healing wands. Art can be used to heal yourself, others, community, and the earth! When you make art with the intent to heal, you make art as medicine. Indigenous peoples called the sacred art objects they made to heal “medicine” because it held healing energy. Medicine Art has vibrational energy because it is your dream of healing projected outward and made manifest in the world. Other communities and individuals who have participated in the Healing with the Arts program (designed by Dr. Michael Samuels and Dr. Mary Rockwood Lane) have found themselves to “see their whole life in a new way” experiencing a sort of “metamorphosis” experience of their being, an awakening of the Spirit! All the potential we have to bring healing to this world lies within us, lets gather and allow this energy to ripple to all and have fun while doing it! Blessings to you.
