Our pioneering program cultivates the unique capacity of the Arts to heal, awaken and transform.
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 hemisphere’, we awaken ‘whole brain’ capacities of intuitive intelligence.
This work catalyzes our dormant higher potential. Participants expand their capacities for authentic and spontaneous self-expression, freedom and ease of being, clear, innovative and solution oriented thinking, inner resilience, open-heartedness, radiant vitality and joy.
The Transformative Arts Certificate Program is comprised of two levels:
LEVEL ONE is a Personal Journey
~ An Inner 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.

A midwifery of the Soul
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.
UPDATE 2021 The TRANSFORMATIVE ARTS CERTIFICATE PROGRAM is transforming!
With the addition of online components, our program is now going ‘hybrid’. It is now possible to do much of the training online.
Though it is impossible to know for certain in this time of global uncertainty, we are planning to host our onsite program in Italy in June and July 2021.
