Transformative Arts Certificate

Art has a unique capacity to transform consciousness.


Self Healing

Our pioneering program cultivates the unique capacity of the Arts to heal, awaken and transform.   satya-and-her-artwork




When we are immersed in the creative flow we open our hearts and minds.   It is intrinsically healing.  When we tap the Source within we open a channel of inexhaustible inspiration.

At the Academy, we have developed simple, yet profound methods for awakening and uplifting consciousness through Creative Process.

     We use all modalities of the arts; painting, clay, collage, sculpture, dance, theater, music, poetry, writing, film, multi-media, etc. as vehicles for a transformative process.   Activating the ‘right brain’, we awaken dormant ‘whole brain’ capacities of higher intelligence and intuition.







 The Certification Program is comprised of two levels:


LEVEL ONE serves as a foundation of personal experience.

A Healing Journey

LEVEL ONE foundation provides support for your own healing journey.  This level is open to all who seek personal healing, inner transformation and spiritual growth. A variety of courses expose students to the many modalities of the arts (music and dance, painting, sculpture, theater, film, etc.) and to the principles of art, creativity and consciousness. Our interdisciplinary approach uses all creative modalities as vehicles for self awareness and the activation of higher human capacities.

Our program is unique in offering extensive mentoring of the facilitation process. We use the model of midwifery, understanding the work to be one of knowledge but also cultivated wisdom and subtle attunement. Students will assist in several courses they have taken previously, meeting before and after class for questions and discussion. Next they will teach segments of a class – with support and feedback for refinement. Finally, they will teach a class with the instructor acting as an assistant. Some students engage the apprenticeship portion longer than others as it is based on their needs. The director and the student together decide when the apprenticeship feels complete.
