CREATIVITY IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE Soul
This is not wall art but Creative evolution.

What is essential in a work of art is that it should rise far above the realm of the personal life and speak from the spirit and the heart . . . as man to the spirit and heart of Mankind."  C G JUNG

ART AS SOULFUL PLAY  
The soul    plays  with what it lovesCome play.

This is not art on a wall in a gallery or museum that you cannot touch. It is art that you create and creates you: you are the alchemical great work of art. In this art you don't have to be perfect, you just have to be you. It is the perfect imperfection of who you really and naturally are, who you were made to be: YOU. There is no art critique or judgement. No good or bad, right or wrong. This is art about acceptance and love, revelation, and intuition. It is creative play in which you embody the images of your soul. In this art, it matters more what it feels like than looks like. You don't have to "be able to draw" (whatever that  means) to heal. The images are a way to dialogue and dream with the soul. On this journey you see a bigger picture in which you are a part of (not apart from) a larger whole. All of you is welcome here. This is about effort, honesty, and fun. It is about soul who is the only one who can touch the spirit and heart of mankind and bring you to life.

"It is not a question of art--or rather it should not be a question of art--but of something more, something other than art: namely the Living effect upon the patient himself."  C G JUNG

"The wealth of the soul exists in images."
C. G. Jung
RE-SEARCH 
Looking back through the  eye of the soul to remember.

To understand this kind of art, it is helpful to reimagine re-search as looking again or back into the past. This is not modern research with citations (OMG). It is an ancient way of embodied heart-based knowing whose repression in modern times is the cause of psychic (soul) dis-ease. It is an ancient feminine (the soul is archetypally seen as feminine) way of knowing and healing ourselves and our lineage. In this process, we honor the soul in our life and all life--forward and back in time, human and nonhuman. In remembering how to learn through art, we undergo what Jung called a “proper education” and “the best safeguard against psychic illness." This visionary art program is the school of the soul, teaching us how to “cleanse" and embody our psyche. While imagining art and soul in this way may seem strange, it is really our modern way that is unnatural. This is the way soul was accessed through the ages that is ancestral, indigenous, and earth-based.

"Art washes away from the soul the dust of the day."

PABLO PICASSO

This Art Centers Around the Soul  
Just as the circle is a symbol of wholeness, at its center is the soul. This process teaches you to orbit around a new center: the soul. In this center is your power, passion, purpose and potential.

 "Art is the journey of a   Free soul." 

ALEV ARGUZ

COURAGEOUS CREATIVITY 
Art teaches us to orbit the Soul not the ego.
Like the shift when people realized that the earth orbited the sun, in this process you realize that you orbit the soul not the ego. You are not the one's calling the shots--or at least shouldn't be. In realizing a new center of gravity and way of moving in the world, you also remember that art is not peripheral but essential: central. On this path, you follow the soul and learn their way of being. In this process, you can take courage from your soul. You are in this together. Despite moments of doubt (and what people have told you), you are always enough and never alone. You were literally made for this. Trust yourself and trust your soul. In this process you are letting go of the reins of the ego (with its fear and insecurity) to gain soul control. Even though, as Georgia O'Keeffe said, "To create one's world in any of the arts takes courage," you've got this. Just remember: YOU ARE AN ARTIST.
"Only one who has risked the fight with the dragon and is not overcome by it wins the hoard, the 'Treasure hard to attain.'"  C G JUNG
A PATH THAT GOES ON & ON 
This is a  Life journey.
As long as we live we are learning, and this path reflects this life journey. Speaking of his art-based path, Jung said: "at present we educate people only up to the point where they can earn a living . . . then education ceases all together." People "spend their entire lives in complete ignorance of the most important things." This creative path is an education in the most important things, stretching from the beginning to the end of our life. It follows the saying: "What if the most important thing is not a thing?" Spoiler alert, the most important thing is soul and what only they can teach us: how to be healed and whole. Built in a learning program designed to accommodate how we learn in self-generated community, this is a living, loving, and learning path designed to accommodate soul. On Soul Space you will find other offerings and teachers to guide and transform you from a soul-centered perspective. This doesn't mean that we pretend to be perfect but that we try to grow and evolve together. 
"There is an art to Seeing things as they are: without naming, without being caught in a network of words, without thinking interfering with perception."  KRISHNAMURTI
"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakes." C JUNG
