Awaken the Artist and Healer Within
Artfully Alive is dedicated to helping you move through personal and creative blocks using revolutionary holistic tools that promote wellbeing and vitality in every aspect of your life. Artfully Alive is a loving and pragmatic philosophy of whole-person—aka “holistic”-- care that recognizes creative self-expression as a valid and essential component to true health and fulfillment.
Our creative, emotional, and physical states are not separate from each other at all, but as many ancient cultures understood, they support one another and are fundamentally linked. Practically speaking, how creative can you be if you are exhausted and unable to function, let alone fire up the inspiration you need to finish your art project? Likewise, how healthy can you really feel if your creative truth is blocked and you can’t express yourself authentically in your own life? If there is one thing I have learned after working holistically with clients for years it’s that a body won’t thrive in a shutdown life, no matter how much healing we try to force-feed it.
Your creativity and health are intertwining narratives-- they tell each other’s stories. So what are they trying to say to you?
Artfully Alive creates breakthroughs by helping you to connect the dots between your creative, emotional and physical states and empowers you with practical insights and tools you can take with you forever. Get to know the artist and healer within, and see what they can do.
Artfully Alive Founding Principles:
Your body was designed to heal itself.
All children are born naturally creative
Shift your energy, the rest will follow
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open... --Martha Graham
Some of Our Tools:
Artfully Alive uses simple yet effective energy healing techniques that draw their wisdom from both venerated ancient traditions and modern scientific knowledge. Energy Healing is documented to be at least 10,000 years old, and that is to say that the practice of shifting the body’s energy systems to promote health and vitality has proven its value over time. We can take advantage of these ancient practices, and use them in innovative, modern ways to jump-start our own self-healing.
