“Looking at beauty in the world is the first step of purifying the mind.”
~ Amit Ray
When I developed this creative practice, my life was full to the brim with work. I was working full-time in a government-funded art studio, and I was building my private therapy practice in every minute available in my evenings and on weekends. My lunch hour was literally my only downtime.
So, I decided to go for a "visual beauty" walk on my lunch hour each day. For an entire year, my "photo therapy walk" became a treasured form of soothing meditation. And, ever being in love with visual symbolism and metaphor, my photos started to express their own healing language.
The Healing Power of Beauty
This course is for you if:
~ Sitting in mindfulness meditation does not suit your restless creative soul.
~ You love beauty and you want to track your inner life's responses to your outer environment.
~ You want to incorporate a creative wellness activity with daily exercise.
~ You are curious about how your emotional life responds to imagery.
~ You long to calm your nervous system and take your attention off of your emotional pain.
~ You want to focus on what you love about your life instead of what is wrong.
~ You want to share your photography with others and/or track your inner life through photos.
Deep Soul Healing
In this course, I share my personal journey of healing a deep pocket of emotional pain and grief at the death of my mother. My story might ignite and inspire your own journey of deep healing as I touch into the deeper spiritual dynamics of healing emotional pain such as ancestral healing, empathic pain processing, and the soul and karmic contracts that we come here to heal.
If you are interested in exploring spiritual and alternative ways to heal your emotional pain, you will love this course. The emails that you will receive touch into the reality that we are larger than this one earth life we are walking now. This larger perspective will support you to call upon the spiritual support of your ancestors, guides and spirit helpers to heal your emotional pain.
