    Conscious Artistic Expression

    The biggest masterpiece you will ever create is the person you are when you die. Not the material items, or power, or money you’ve accumulated, but that single person depicting a blip of existence, and all they have experienced.

    Understanding Balance

    It is easy for us to get caught up in doing the things that we feel like we must do every day, and forgetting about the things that we long for, dream of, or crave. While these may not immediately feel like necessities, they are just as important as feeding our family, feeding ourselves, earning a living, or paying bills.

    Elemental Imbalance: Earth

    Earth is strong and rooted. It represents the physical, and demonstrates influence in our lives through duty, structure, form, bodily health, and harvest.
