I am excited to be hosting InVisioning & Renewal: A Day to Gather Strength and Wisdom in the Alchemy of Art and Nature with co-facilitator Amy Sullivan, LMFT, art therapist and modern mystic, and Jovani, improvisational sound healer and painter. Both Amy and Jovani have been "mothers" to my own visual art practice in their own ways, holding gentle space for me as I explored and played with paint for the first time four years ago. We all share an interest in the intersection between creative expression and spiritual healing.
I met with Jovani in her home, where we have been gathering to create improvisational sound together for almost a decade. On the video you will hear samples of our original improvised music. During the retreat, on Saturday, February 3, 2018, at Elkus Ranch Environmental Education Center in Half Moon Bay, California, Jovani and I will be co-creating supportive soundscapes throughout the day to support the journey of InVisioning and Renewal.
Enjoy these episodes with Jovani and me.
Here is Episode 8, in which we discuss freedom in art-making and Jovani's process.
