The Spiritual Power of Art exhibit series explores three different meanings of “spirit”: Human Spirit, Universal Energy and Mystical & Religious Experience. The Universal Energy exhibit focuses on spirit as the flow of energy including concepts such as auras, chakras, meridians; and how color, line, tone, vibration, symbols and other aspects of art affect energy.

The artwork in this exhibit features a wide variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media and installation. Life Force Arts Foundation Executive Director Joan Forest Mage says, "It's fascinating to see the interpretations artists have about the theme. At LFA, our art exhibits create sacred space in which events become healing rituals: performances, concerts, poetry readings, workshops, lectures are all infused with transformative power to heal and enlighten the those present."
