Your next personal breakthrough will NOT be logical!

In 1996 I opened an art center with ZERO art training. I was out of my MIND...

In 1996, with zero art training--I had not even painted on a canvas or taken an art class since I was 15-- I was deeply called to create a safe & inspiring space where people could come to learn how to create at the canvas so that what they learned in art class would inspire & empower the art that is their life.

I was 26 years old and committed to creating my own magical life. After graduating from the University of Michigan and going off to sell books door-to-door for the next 4 summers, I was VERY clear that life was MUCH more like a blank canvas than a multiple choice test!

I had been given the understanding in a moment of clarity, a classic ah-ha or lightbulb moment, that we are meant to live our lives as art. So, with money I made selling books door-to-door in Walla Walla, WA during the summer of 1995, I bought a run-down, crack house in an up and coming commercial neighborhood in Nashville, TN. After months of knuckle-swelling renovations, on May 1st, 1996 (24 years ago!), I opened The Creative Fitness Center.

Fast forward… what we are experiencing today in this world is a result of forgetting the truth of our roles as Life Artists. We were conditioned to work, to achieve, to live up to others expectations, to fill roles that others deemed “appropriate,” and to expect life to be a battle, a struggle...and what the world needs now is to get Creatively Fit.

We are now remembering that we are ALL artists and that the art we are creating in each and every moment is our life and we are either doing it with or without awareness.

What we are experiencing right now is the result of the masses living and creating reality without awareness.

It will now take the masses to remember how to create life WITH awareness.

This is why, since 2010, I have been training individuals, other optimistic, idealistic, and action-oriented healer / teacher souls like me, who understand or feel, or who just know somehow inexplicably, that art making and life making and happiness and personal fulfillment can be seeded, expanded, and ultimately created into our life experience starting at the canvas.

It is SO MUCH MORE FUN to be a part of a movement, to create change together, in community, cheering each other on while celebrating our “wild & crazy” ideas! We are a tribe and we are opening up the training to dramatically expand our creative reach.

This could be exactly what you have been looking for!
