Alloway New Jersey Beth ~ Trusting inner source

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” ~Dalai Lama

Beth is an empowered woman. She is very grounded in her spiritual practices and guides others in their own healing work. I was thrilled to collaborate with her and create some images that reflect her spirituality as the work she is doing in the world is so aligned with my passions.

As Beth approaches the completion of her 200 hour shaktinanda yoga training, we wanted to document this exciting time in her journey. She is now guiding others to tune into their bodies and aiding them in energetic healing practices. These images are a beautiful demonstration of her abilities and desire to help others achieve inner peace and happiness.

Witnessing Beth tune into her inner source and harness her divine energy was extraordinary. Her peaceful yet playful energy truly inspired me. I am so grateful to have created this beautiful and spiritual art with her and I am so honored to have been a part of the positive impact she is bestowing upon the world.

Alloway New Jersey Stacey ~ Surrendering to grief

“Grief is a messy, unpredictable process with a life of its own. It’s a thief – sneaking up on you when you least expect it. And it’s elusive– not there when you predict it will be. It teaches you that you must surrender to it. You have no choice but to surrender to the avalanches of emotion. You hope that in some way, every time you cry, your heart becomes a little less broken and that with every avalanche, you heal.” ~Stacey Friedman

Stacey is an incredible woman. She has such a presence about her, you can truly feel her power. She is brave, strong, and passionate. So when she reached out to me and asked me if I’d be willing to create images that represented her grief in a symbolic way I was honored. To be given the privilege to aid her in her healing journey and to hold a safe space for her to express herself and her emotions was extraordinary.

Grief is something that we all experience at one point in our lives. But it looks different for each and every one of us. Walking through this process and allowing yourself to feel the waves as they crash over you is extremely difficult work. I was so impressed by Stacey’s willingness to bear her soul to create this art. Her vulnerability took an immense amount of courage. But that is the birth place of healing and I think the images we created tapped into that.

The human spirit yearns for connection in difficult times. We all feel pain and struggle and we all deserve to feel like we are not alone when we are going through it. When you view these images I hope you connect with the power of Stacey’s vulnerability. We all experience grief. We experience it in our own way, but none of us are doing it alone…
