Art (s) is inclusive of many mediums

Mediums include 2 & 3-dimensional art with lessons in: sketching, painting, drawing, collage, calligraphy, words as art, clay, dance, wood carving, fabric arts, mandalas & visionary art. Each medium facilitates a different experience & teaching for you to explore & experience to create your own style in the image of your soul.

Sharing across mediums integrates our collective understanding.

With live drop-in studio time for emergent questions on process, experience & technique, along with sessions for sharing & an embedded partner & group practice, this is a social-learning intensive, designed to facilitate both individual & collective healing transformation.
Scholarliness alone is not enough; there is a knowledge of the heart that gives deeper insight. The knowledge of the heart is in no book and is not to be found in the mouth of any teacher, but grows out of you like the green seed from the dark earth. . . soul speaks in images
c g jung
While influenced by C G Jung, we take an archetypal approach, recognizing that ABR is an ancient form of scholarship, practiced by artists in caves before words. It is an emergent, natural & innate function of the creative psyche at play, unique to each person. 

Should I take this course? Yes, if you...

* Wish to access a deeper knowledge that transcends your limited capacity
* Want to remember & activate past ways of imaginal knowing & healing 
* Seek to collaborate in the education of our time by the world soul to find 
sustainable solutions for tomorrow
Objectives. reawaken a love for learning in fun and innovative ways to improve comprehension & retention, while healing & transforming yourself & life. 

Each week includes an objective like removing creative blocks or self-reflection & an artist who exemplifies the process, walking you through a journey of creative discovery including a variety of artists as well as Heather & her experience.

Artists include: Frida Kahlo, Georgia O' keeffe, C G Jung, Picasso, Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Gabriel Roth & Wassily Kandinsky as well as traditions that are either not preserved by history or collective like the art of Indian mythology, Native American totem design, Australian Aboriginal Dream Time.

Most of all, art is explored experientially & personally as archetypal medicine, transcending any one artist or culture to discover what is unique & emergent in you & your research. Are you called to drum or dance? What myth is being told?  
Examples can be famous or the person next door. The point is to help show the depth & breadth of ABR & apply it, including:
  • Figures from Art History 
  • Culturally Diverse & Inclusive Art
  • Ritual & Ceremonial Totemic Art  
  • Marginalized Artists & Traditions
  • Transdisciplinary Approach
  • Personal & Academic Applications 
  • Archetypal Patterns & Paths 
  • Arts & Crafts as well as Nature
  • Diverse Mediums & Techniques

Paintings are but research and experiment. I never make a painting as a work of art. All of them are researches. I search constantly and there is a logical sequence in all this research. . .  The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls. 
Pablo Picasso

Who is this path for? Yes, you!

ABR is for everyone, whether you are a doctoral student or student of life, because it calls us to remember an embodied yet forgotten way of knowing that is already in us. Weaving experience from Heather's doctoral dissertation as well as examples of drumming, dancing, writing . . . you name it, this class takes an archetypal approach. It doesn't matter if you can draw a nose (at all) or if you went to high school, college or kindergarten. In fact, Jung said that the "soul is everywhere that scholarliness is not," returning to imaginal scholarship & the roots of academia in Plato's academy: play, nature & lived experience. 

Art is our first language . . . 

It is in your bones & DNA, as natural as breath. Emerging from the psychic soil of soul & the collective unconscious, your images show you what you need to know to navigate & search.
  • Art is as individual as your fingerprint. Be yourself. Picasso said great artists steal, but only for ideas. Don't create in anyone's image but your own! 
  • ABR is a process of allowing & uneducating as we remove inner blocks that limit our soul knowledge.
  • When you create art you connect with soul & a natural FLOW state that access information beyond your separate self to reach into collective knowing.
