Healing Journey

An Inner Journey of  Self Discovery and Transformation

"The Passage" Sandra Bierman

July 12-19  2020,  Assisi Italy

A skillfully and lovingly facilitated journey into the depths of your heart and the heights of your Soul.

The creative process is intrinsically healing, and as we follow the messages of Spirit we are led home.

All the modalities of the arts …painting, poetry, clay, collage, music,  movement, dance & theater, etc., become tools of exploration,  leading us to the deep, authentic center within our own Being.

Dana's wonderwoman

Creative process opens a deep connection with your soul and spirit.

In this unique course, you will be guided in a process that is carefully crafted to fully open your creative channel and access a state of high vibration creative flow.  What emerges is a spectacular miracle in the soul’s long journey – an expansive opening into joy, light and freedom.

At the beginning of the week you are led in various processes ~ Energy Flow Painting, Spirit and Soul Collage, Moving Meditation and other ‘sparkings’ that initiate the Transformative Journey.

As the week progresses, each person is guided to follow their own inner thread- some work with clay, some with painting, others with collage, mask & costume making, etc.  Each person will do exactly what is right for them and the Divine orchestrates the process brilliantly! 

Invoking the presence of the Divine, we are guided in a profound inner process of healing and soul awakening.  We come to the fountainhead of our creative power, in alignment with our Divine Source. In this magical territory, synchronicities abound. Deep alchemical changes take place.

Dana is a world class teacher whose work belongs on the global stage.”   SMG  USA

“Dana is a gifted midwife of creativity. If you are ready to be born again- with aliveness, with passion, with authenticity…then it is time for you to come to her course.”  AJ  France



Creative embodiment opens the channel to the vitality and wisdom of the soul, and this catalyzes profound positive change in all areas of our lives.

The week includes instruction, close personal guidance and skillfully guided creative process work within an intimate group.  Morning and afternoon class sessions plus open studio time, sharing circles and special evening activities.
