Life as Art, Women's Creativity and Spirit
Asheville, North Carolina. United States
I trust that everyone is innately creative and holds the wisdom for her creativity journey.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ~ Pablo Picasso
I join with you to reconnect with this vitality. I midwife your journey of diving deep in exploring and living from the dance of your authentic self, the Divine, your joy, and the creative process - whether you desire to create your own one-person show or some other creative work - or desire to show up more authentically and creatively with your life as the stage. My work focusing upon welcoming enchantment into daily life via creative and contemplative processes. I support you in listening to your intuition, your body wisdom, and your inspiration. We explore the mystery and invite the unfolding of your glorious creative spirit.
Methods of Working:
One-on-one and small groups in person and via phone or teleclass
Personally, I have learned the most from my process in the following journey with both my creative work and my life: staying as closely attuned as possible to my intuition, my creative spirit, body wisdom, and authentic self; following these threads along my inner landscape and within the world around me; and responding with greater and greater degrees of awareness, integrity, and skill. I delight in midwifing others on this journey as well.

I also have a special fondness for beautiful beads, fabrics, threads, and color. I have previously enjoyed exploring jewelry-making, calligraphy, stained glass, weaving, and piano.
