Mentoring the Soul: The Teacher is the first in a series called Life Force Wheel, a year-long, six show series of art exhibits and multiarts presentations exploring 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 Wheel is based in a deep awareness of our unity with all beings, and seeks to foster healthy relationships between the individual, human society, nature and the spirit realm. The six show series covers ten Archetypes, beginning on December 8, 2013 with the Teacher Archetype and concluding in January 2015 with the True Self Archetype. All shows will be held at Life Force Arts Center, 1609 W. Belmont, Chicago.

The mission of Life Force Arts Foundation (LFA) is to explore the spiritual power of the visual, literary and performing arts through artistically excellent exhibits, events and publications that awaken human potential and create spiritual transformation. We focus on the arts as a common ground of human expression, where artists and audiences of diverse spiritual traditions can honor each other, and share their personal and collective experiences of the spiritual aspect of life. LFA's goals are to develop spiritual artists, the spiritual arts audience, and the spiritual arts community. The Foundation operates Life Force Arts Center (LFAC), Chicago's spiritual art gallery and performance space, which presents visual art exhibits, dance, theater and music performances, author book signings and workshops with artists who are experts in spiritual artmaking.
