We are certain that you will love these artists as much as we do!

Lauri is a life coach, artist and entrepreneur dedicated to creating a living from her greatest passions after spending years in the corporate world. One stop by her site, and you will see just how enthusiastic and committed she is to reaching others with the power of creative possibility – it is her calling! Her art includes dolls and prints of highly textural mixed-media work, and she supports women in transitional soulwork, too. Her workshop, Essence of S.H.E. Journal, is bound to delight and ignite our hearts and souls.

I’ve had the blessing of knowing Michelle for well over a year now, as friend and collaborator for several creative visions. She is Soul-full. Courageous. Wise. Both tender and fierce. The creative fires burn deep in her, guiding how she creates her own intuitive art, guides others as an expressive arts facilitator and bears witness to human resiliency as a social worker. She is a Listener, and a See-er, and an inspiring artist. With a generous heart, she will share with us a journaling practice near and dear to her own creative discoveries, Communing with the Ancestors.

Meet me here next Friday when I introduce 21 Secrets Fall teachers Rachel Urista, Sheri Ponzi and Veronica Funk!
