The Phoenix & The Healer
& Opening & Closing Receptions
The artwork in this exhibit features a wide variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, fabric art and installation. Life Force Arts Foundation Executive Director Joan Forest Mage says, "It's fascinating to see the interpretations artists have about this theme. From depictions of mythological healers to healing mandalas, from personal healing journeys to artwork that creates a portal into transformational experience, this show expands our understanding of these powerful Archetypes."
The Phoenix & The Healer is the fourth in the Life Force Wheel year-long, six show series of art exhibits and multiarts presentations explores the deep Archetypes of human existence. The Life Force Wheel is a spiritual teaching based in ancient, universal wisdom, received through inspiration by modern shamanic practitioner Joan Forest Mage. The six show series began on December 8, 2013 with the Teacher Archetype and concludes in January 2015 with the True Self Archetype. All shows will be held at Life Force Arts Center, 1609 W. Belmont, Chicago.

There are ten Archetypes on the Life Force Wheel. Each is a role which contributes to the harmony between the individual and the Web of Life. The Life Force Wheel series of shows includes art exhibits, performances, poetry readings, workshops, lectures and other events to help the audience gain the wisdom of each Archetypal energy.
The mission of Life Force Arts Foundation (LFA) is to celebrate and activate the spiritual power of the visual, literary and performing arts in artists and audiences. We focus on the arts as a common ground of human expression, where artists of diverse spiritual traditions present artistically excellent exhibits, events and publications to awaken human potential, create spiritual transformation and connect audiences to the mystical dimension.
