Why Follow the Soul? The Soul Knows the Way.
Why Create Art? The Soul Speaks in Images.
Reasons to Walk the Path:
Jung asked: “But why do I encourage patients to express themselves at a certain stage of development by means of brush, pencil or pen? . . I wish to produce an effect" in which the student "begins to play an active part.” This process has a profound effect: it transforms you. In its images you are recreated so that you can recreate the world. But you have to experience this yourself.

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world." Harriet Tubman
THIS A LIFE CHANGING AND LIFE SAVING Offering
This is an Invaluable form of Individuation or Liberation.
It is a therapy and teaching of the Soul that frees you from suffering to free others.
This path defies description. Jung said, “pictures do produce effects which, I must admit, are rather difficult to describe. When a patient has seen once or twice how he is freed from a wretched state of mind by working at a symbolical picture, he will thenceforward turn to this means of release whenever things go badly with him. In this way something invaluable is won, namely a growth of independence, a step towards psychological maturity. The patient can make himself creatively independent by this method –if I may call it such. He is no longer dependent on his dreams or on his doctor’s knowledge, but can give form to his own inner experience by painting it." This is the magical value of art and the soul's power to transform. It is an experience that I have born witness to in my own process and those who journey with me. It is defy words and must be experienced.

QUALITIES REQUIRED FOR THE JOURNEY
Courage Honesty Transparency Compassion
All you have to do is be natural. BE YOURSELF. This is a process of learning that removes the dirt from the soul. Yet it is fundamentally grounding. Humility comes from the humus , the root for the word ground, and this process digs into the depths and grounds you in humility before the sou. It is not about the escape of transcendence but the transcendent function that bridges the opposites of heaven and earth. Deep roots are required for high branches. Root deep and reach high, embodying the archetypal tree of knowledge and life in your body and a body of art.
