 Dana is a visionary for the consciousness community. Her work awakens us.  Robert Mc Dermott, President Emeritus of California Institute of Integral Studies

“I hesitated going to Dana Lynne Andersen’s weekend intensive called Seed the Vision because I, too, am a facilitator for expressive arts and human liberation. What could she teach me, I wondered, and yet something kept pulling me to her and to the event. I emailed her to ask if she thought her work would be helpful to me. Having a fine-tuned antenna for people who are authentic and wise, I was moved by her response which was open, affirming and down-to-earth wise. In person, Dana is all of that and also loving, calm and confident and easily able to adapt to the changing energies of a group. She is full of grace, enthusiasm, humility, humor, clarity of purpose and pure in her passion. She models a radiant humanness and nourishes the divine creative spark in each of us. Thank you, Dana, for shifting the trajectory of my life.

“This art painting and collage experience has opened a part of me that is childlike, joyful and adventuresome. I am entering the third phase of my life, filled with a joy, an excitement, a curiosity that will carry me through these next three decades. And then, this wave of creativity and vitality will dissolve upon the beach on the other side, depositing me with a gentleness and love that will enable me to find my footing in a new world with ease and grace.” Lorraine Vann

“Dana’s paintings always have a message which comes from intuition and the heart. This way of painting, where the painter enters into an inner flow becoming an instrument of a greater power, is astonishingly well taught at the Academy of Art, Creativity and Consciousness. In their courses people can directly experience this creative process and see not only its beauty but also its healing power, and the doors it opens to oneself.”  ~ Mihai Huber, Romania 

“This course gave me the possibility to open a certain part of myself, to open a door in order to let out my emotions, observing them and working on them through the process of creativity. Bringing this creative flow into all things; a flow of colors, of light, of joy, touched my heart, showering it with real joy, expanding it more and more. To start a new life made out of this joy, these colors, this love for life itself.” Claudio Monello, Italy

The class was an intense and profound experience that has left its sign of lasting significance on my heart   Ileana Alegretti

“The Arts and Consciousness workshop was transformative for me.  I began the week anticipating I would receive some instruction about how to “do art” framed in the context of spirituality.   Following the workshop, I now know that my creativity is so much more than “doing art” and that engaging in the creative process is essential to me as a spiritual being.

Dana is such a gifted teacher, grounding all that she offers in metaphysical concepts that have evolved from numerous luminaries, both contemporary and of previous generations.  She structured the workshop so that we used a variety of art materials, yet provided complete freedom and encouragement as to how they were to be used, thus allowing for the development of the creative flow that fit for each person.  Never once did she demonstrate a right way to do something – that was so refreshing to me, as I have had little experience with art techniques and was concerned I might not measure up to outside expectations.

In addition, Dana planned activities that encouraged us to embody the art that we created.  These activities helped develop a felt sense of the creative flow working through us, body and soul.  I came to understand myself in relation to my artist process because I had the opportunity to experience it bodily, along with others, in a non-judgmental and fun environment.

I can’t speak highly enough of Dana’s ability to convey significant information about the creative process, while allowing for and encouraging each individual to follow their unique creative thread.  It was a joy to be in this workshop and I hope to be able to work with her again.  Dana is a light in the world!   Marj Cannon
