Soulful Adventurer ~ Visionary Artist ~ Holistic Healer
Art of Allowing Facilitator
One of the driving forces in my life has always been to experience more and more freedom—un-boundedness if you will. The process of creating art, specifically through the approach of ‘Allowing’ what is inside to be expressed on the outside, is extraordinarily liberating.
My first painting experiences as an adult began in 2016 when I started enrolling in week-long painting retreats as vacations. I had no idea where it was going to lead, and it leading somewhere wasn’t even on my mind. My habit as a curiously brave and adventurous soul is that I just keep going down the road or roads that open up in front of me until I reach the end; some are longer than others.
This colorful road has become my current path of self-discovery and healing, and as is often true, now serves as another tool in my medicine bag to offer others on their own paths of self-discovery and healing.
My path of service as a Holistic Healer is 30 years long. My private practice continues to attract others who seek the opportunity to heal from the traumas of their own life journeys. Physical, emotional and spiritual wounding show up daily in a myriad of ways seeking transformation. I am honored and humbled to be of assistance and to bear sacred witness to both the suffering and the healing. We are all so beautifully fragile and so nobly courageous.
My own development as a Visionary Artist through the process of the Art of Allowing has offered a most surprising and deeply felt discovery … the canvas is a reflective mirror of the one who faces it. This Sacred Mirror as I have come to know and call it, offers itself up to receive and reveal our most profound inner wisdom, engagement with the parts of ourselves that have become lost or simply yet unknown, and connection to and with our transpersonal aspects. This includes the All of Who We Are as individuals, as well as those benevolent beings who watch over and guide us.
As a newly Certified Art of Allowing Facilitator, I am committed to offering artful experiences to those who are called to the Sacred Mirror of the canvas. My many years in healership and workshop leadership serve as a strong foundation for holding space for whatever needs to happen in and around and through the canvas. The visionary experiences possible are supported by my three decades of study in the nature of the soul, indigenous healing methods, drum circle and visionary meditation circle leadership, and my own ceremonial practices and experiences.
I warmly and heartfully invite you to join me at the canvas for your journey into your own Sacred Mirror.
Art is a portal … to healing.
The Art of Allowing Academy was founded by Flora Aube in 2014. It is an “intuitive-based approach which empowers students to create from the intelligence of their own Inner Guidance.”
