What it is a Healing Arts Intensive?


  • The Healing Arts Intensive is a unique group expressive arts therapeutic process based in the Life Force Arts Method and built around a performance by Life Force Arts Ensemble.

  • Life Force Arts Method (LFAM) - a modern version of universal wisdom teachings that value true self and creative community. It is based in 4 Skills that give us the wisdom to deal with the basic issues of human life.

  • Transformational Goal - Each participant focuses on a personal Transformational Goal (Intention) that they want to see fulfilled by the end of the Intensive

  • Artmaking - Creating and observing interdisciplinary arts - visual art, writing, dance, theater, music, storytelling -  is the activity that enables each participant to actualize their Transformation Goal
Life Force Arts Ensemble performance - Each Intensive is built around a performance of Life Force Arts Ensemble which Intensive participants attend. The Ensemble creates a healing ritual through the arts based in the artwork of the current exhibit and including live music, dance and theater, sound healing, storytelling and an opportunity for the audience to meditate on their Transformational Goals
