ArtKeyTypes is a psycho-somatic approach to the painting process that works by incorporating visualization, breathwork, and sometimes movement.
ArtKeyTypes has a long and winding narrative, not a linear path. It began with my journey as a self-taught yogini when I found the book The Sivananda Companion to Yoga. Many years later I completed somewhat metaphysical research into The States of Presence and Insight in the Painting Process. One of the findings in this research was that the creative process is actually a process of individuation! This finding is what ArtKeyTypes is about in a nutshell. Removing the blocks that hold each individual from their highest creative expression.
This powerful process as the name indicates is a foolproof way to work with the archetypes of the psyche that have existed since the beginning of time.
Why this process in this way?
The premise is that we are all creators. Whether we make art, food, love…there is always something we are creating or becoming. This process follows the archetypal patterns of life itself. There is no one who is not capable of holding a brush and allowing it to dance on the canvas. There is so much that one can learn about oneself through this organic process. The reason it is a process and not a method, or a modality is that it is non-linear and intuitively guided in every moment.
As a creator, I have put together a few guidelines to make this a most transformational experience. These guidelines will be the sharing I present at retreats and while working with clients. Yes, this will involve more than just painting as there are elements that need to be engaged in the energetic and auric body for this process to work.
I have been exploring energy medicine since taking a workshop with Beryl Bender Birch in 2010 where she demonstrated how to scan the body energetically and intuit where the weak areas are. I am certified by Healing in America as an energy medicine practitioner, by Kripalu as an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist, through the Breath Center as a Breathwork facilitator, and I am also a certified practitioner of Metaphysical Anatomy Technique a pscho-somatic trauma release modality.
ArtKeyTypes weaves through my experience with these healing modalities, intuitively guided by the needs of the group or individual and what may come up in any given moment.
