About Artistic Healers: Visual Platform for the Contemporary Goddess

Greetings! It's Yogi and I am the founder of Soul Dreamin and the visual artist behind the Artistic Healers project, a visual platform for the contemporary goddess; where women are highlighted for their creative acts reflected in the greater good. These visual set serve as a way to help push creators by using technology, in where imagery is essential to sharing one’s voice, all while inspiring and releasing divine energy onto Mother Earth.

What is Artistic Healers? It is a visual project created during a dark phase I was experiencing. The intent is to gift visuals to support women in pushing their brand/business in these changing times where the feminine is re-claiming their voices and to express a re-presentation of women by a women. The collective has appx. 30 women involved. All of these women come from different walks of life but all have decided to follow their dreams by building for others and self. The mission is to spread awareness of the women that are curating content centered around health and wellness lifestyle, philanthropy, event experiences, art/merch and more! The imagery is kept grouped by using the hashtag #ArtisticHealers.

Join us for an evening of an all female panel and a space filled with art installations, performances and much more. The core focus of the panel is to allow you a personal connection with the healers highlighted in the project and to gain insight into their worlds and how they are bridging creativity and healing in the contemporary day. The panel will inform women and men on key topics such as balancing business and art, health and wealth and how we can heal ourselves through self care and in so heal the world. The focus of the mixer is to fuse art and healing, creating an experience that will enlighten all on a deeper level.

Whether an artist, entrepreneur or spectator, you will be networking with like minded souls while connecting with women who are dominating their careers with healing and the arts.

Anisa & Baby Em

 

Anisa, a true believer that we have the power to heal ourselves! She has always been interested in food+health and as she got older she became more aware of learning everyday how to improve her foods with all the different varieties of fruits and vegetables. In 2013, she transitioned into a vegetarian and she continued to read plenty of books that wrote of diet and health, which inspired her to become vegan. Blessed to be a mother of a sweet 11 month old angel and blessed that she can feed her with delicious healthy food, Baby Em has been vegan since birth and is a huge inspiration and motivation to Anisa's health physically, mentally and spiritually. Anisa plans on starting her own catering company that will be able to help provide a delicious, nutritious and healing meal to people who are changing, have changed and need help changing into a cleaner healthier lifestyle. She hopes one day that the world can be conscious of their temple and allow it to grow with the proper vitamins and nutrients.

Ayashama Creations

Twin ceramists, Maria Del Mar and Maria Jose, born in Colombia but living in the states with a purpose to reconnect to our ancestral roots through their work. Ayasham is a word created by the twins that symbolizes protection, healing, abundance, and spiritual connection. This name derives from the words Ayahuasca and Shaman. Ayahuasca meaning the rope of the spirits because it is the link between the underworld and the spiritual.This sacred medicinal vine is  found in the Amazon Rain forest and is used for healing spiritual and karmic traumas and guides the spirit into a state of consciousness and rebirth. The shaman is the medicine man, one who heals and guides the ceremonies through his chants. These elements are a big part of the creation process, through sculpting the ladies find healing and guidance, as well as a journey of remembrance to a forgotten practice and teachings of our ancestors.

The handmade creations symbolize their offerings to Pachamama (mother earth) for healing, abundance, and protection. Inspired by the work of our indigenous ancestors from the Americas who depicted the human condition through faces and humanistic figures. During travels around South America, they gathered different materials  from the land, and knowledge of traditional techniques. Material plays a big role in the concept of returning to the root and remembrance of the ancient ones. Utilizing all the earth elements such as Terra-Cotta clay (earth), water during the process of sculpting, and fire when goes through the kiln.

As twins, they have shared bond since the womb and feel the connection is so deep and beautiful that it is embraced in any way possible. Both feel very blessed to have each other and have shared so many experiences that have made them closer and closer each day. Since first STUDYING clay and sculpting techniques, they noticed the connection with not only this sacred material but also the human figure. They began to see a correlation between the work of our ancestors and THEIRS. Intuition and guidance from those who came before began to appear in visions. 

Please enjoy the visual of the ladies playing and working together <3.

Being the eldest girl in her culture, there was a large expectation in the woman she’d become and was groomed to eventually become the matriarch of the family. Her aspirations to live a creative life conflicted with the vision set for her. In 2013 she started Reine + Rebelle (which means Queen + Rebel in french) at first as a womens-wear brand and by summer of 2014 she quit, deeming entrepreneurship as too difficult. In the summer of 2016 she was inspired to relaunch her brand in a new way. She was creating more than ever so decided to record a podcast, Muses + Bruises, chronicling the journey as an accountability tool and to inspire other reluctant creatives. Her relaunched honored herself as a creative being, publishing her poetry in her book Butterfly In The Reine as well as apparel. She realized that Reine + Rebelle represents oneness, merging the divine feminine and divine masculine in self.
