Bridge to the Soul: The Art of Healing is an intercultural and interactive Art exhibition that explores contemporary artists, who see their Art as objects of power and healing. For over a millennia, humans in indigenous traditions have used objects (Art) in creative ways to gain wisdom, heal sickness, avert suffering, and to navigate through life.Through the alchemic processes of Art this select group of artists are reawakening their inner wisdom and the intrinsic healing power of art within themselves and their communities. They inspire us though their journey and through the depth of their transformative Art: a window  which offers the viewer a savory taste of the Art of healing.

This meaningful exhibit, is the second in the series of Art 4 All Peoples,  Bridge to the Soul~ A Global Renaissance of the Heart. The first exhibition was called “Köprü, Ruh” ~”Bridge to the Soul,” was at Art 4 All People in Malibu.  It was inspired be the life and poetry of 13th century mystic Rumi as an inspiration.The intention for the Bridge to the Soul Exibitions and project is to create a deeper engagement and to shift the world’s attention towards love, transformation, and healing, through the Arts. Art 4 All Peoples future vision for the Bridge to the Soul exhibition series is to create a global pilgrimage taking this traveling exhibition to San Francisco, CA Turkey, and Germany.  All in the name of healing, transformation and spirituality via Art and its experience.

*January 25th, 2014 10:30- 4:30 (Full Day) Deborah Koff Chapin ,Touch Drawing Workshop RegisterHERE/Minimum Participants 10

Open the floodgates of authentic creative expression through the simple yet profound process of Touch Drawing. When you touch paper that is placed over a smooth surface of paint, the pressure forms imprints on the underside of the page. Through the speed and directness of this process, you can create many drawings in a short period of time. This offers a sense of freedom that allows you to release deep layers of emotion and opens the way for your soul and spirit to emerge. After the drawings are done, you can reflect upon the full series to witness your transformative journey and access deep insight

Through Touch Drawing, people who are artistically unconfident often discover the joy of creative expression. Experienced artists access deep sources of inspiration. Touch Drawing as a practice of creative, psychological and spiritual integration. It has applications in the fields of therapy, health, education, creativity, coaching and spirituality.
