Creativity & Healing

The world is calling out for deep collective healing and there is no more powerful force than Creativity to assist us in this journey.

It has the ability to reach the depths of our expression, guide us to our truest selves, and encourage us to use our imagination to create new ways outside of what currently is.

Creativity creates language beyond word; breaking down barriers and building bridges between our similarities and differences. This is its power, the ability to share and relate to each other’s emotions and experiences.

The exchange of creative energy causes shifts in our being and becoming.

What is your relationship with creativity? How has creativity supported your growth?

And what part of your creative expression is calling to be explored?

VOLVER A LA TIERRA TOUR / Back To Earth Journey (Previously funded 2020)

Back to Earth is an artistic and innovative project showing the importance of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta [Santa Marta’s snow-capped mountain range], located in Colombia, through an animated short displayed as a 3D hologram, to bring the understanding of the ancestral peoples of the land to our children and youth.

Our heart’s wish is for the Back to Earth Tour to be an annual event, bringing young people the ways that allow us to preserve the territory’s ancestral wisdom. This will allow us to create, during a 10-day period, a space to bring to the present the ancestral tools motivating us to deeply connect with nature and life itself.
