About Dana’s Teaching:

“This is not about art – its about LIFE!  In one short weekend my heart blasted open and I felt brought home to the core of my BEING. An enormous flow of creative expression poured out of me – I was like a child again. All that we did was healing and deeply meaningful. This course utterly transcended my expectations.”  ~ Jenny, Denmark

“Thank you so much for such a beautiful painting experience- it opened the channel for my writing.  I went home after your course and easily finished a book I had been working on for years!  It is now published.  Thank you again for a work that so profoundly  stirs the creative spirit…I am enclosing a copy”   LWS Australia

In this class I discovered myself, the right direction for my life, and the steps I need to take.  This is so much more than an art class!  Simonetta Italy

A class with Dana is like being in a healing waterfall of Divine Energy-  Emanuela Costa

A creative journey exploring the inner spaces of perception – In this class I had a powerful shift in my awareness and in my energy.  Felice Guarino  Spain
