Art Heals day 18 :: Announcing Spectrum!!!


Today is the launch day for Spectrum, a brand new visual journaling workshop that has been percolating behind the scenes over here at Hali Karla Arts for several months now!!

The best part, in my opinion, is getting to share with you not just WHAT it is, but WHO has gathered to bring this vision into a real and rich offering to spark your creative, holistic life!

So, without further ado...

Consider yourself invited to join me & 30+ holistic-minded artists, healers & visionaries in a 10 month Visual Journaling Workshop called Spectrum!


These are the brilliant women joining together to create this offering for you:



In that gorgeous line-up above, we have artists of all sorts, herbalists, healers, energy workers, shamanic practitioners, dancers, therapists, coaches, photographers, word-weavers, yoginis, drummers, nutritionists, heart-tenders, and space-holders of the highest caliber and vision.

Honestly, I could not be more honored to be able to gather and present to you this particular combination or soul-igniting light-holders. (You can read more about each of them over at the Spectrum page)

What makes Spectrum stand out from other art/visual journaling workshops is not only the contributors’ diverse backgrounds and specialties, but the unique content that will guide the exploration.

In Spectrum, you will orient yourself to your own healing stories and create new ones, activate body-connection and creative practices, and deepen your relationship with the rhythmic messages of nature all around you. You will spend each month with a different body system - exploring the practical, metaphorical and intuitive wisdom of the creative Life experience that is uniquely You - honoring and celebrating the vast spectrum of your truth... all within the playful creation of a visual journal!

Think of your Spectrum visual journal as a Creative Field Guide to your unique, embodied experience.

And, in case you're wondering, no art experience is necessary to fully benefit from a visual journaling practice! If you breathe, you are a creative being, and this is the source of your unique expression.


"At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity."

~ Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, Kitchen Table Wisdom

And there's more, if you want to take your Spectrum journey even further...

Once you register, you will be provided a link to consider a very special One-on-One mentoring program with yours truly, called Embody YOU, designed to support your Spectrum experience and the development of your creative practice as a touchstone in your life and healing process!

embodyyou_button There's only one thing I love more than gathering together a group of women to celebrate and activate creative expression and body awareness in others - and that's working one-on-one with those ready and willing to take their creative practice to the next level. There are only a few seats for this opportunity - and if it calls you forth, I am honored to act as witness and beacon to your creative wisdom and greatness.

OH - and did I mention there's an EARLY~BIRD Sale for Spectrum to celebrate our launch??!

Yep, that's right.
