Blog Post on the Origins of ArtKeyTypes

 

ArtKeyTypes is a psycho-somatic approach to the painting process that works by incorporating visualization, breathwork, and movement.

ArtKeyTypes began with my journey as a self-taught yogini when I found the book The Sivananda Companion to Yoga. Many years later I completed a somewhat metaphysical dissertation about 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.  Individuation means integration and removing the blocks that hold each individual from their highest creative expression.

Why this process?

We are all creators. Whether we make art, food, music, love…there is always something we are creating or becoming. Life is in a constant cycle of creation and destruction.  Every one of us is capable of holding a brush and allowing it to dance on the canvas. There is so much that we can learn 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.

There are a few guidelines to make this a most transformational experience which is what I share when I work with groups or one on one clients.

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.  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.
