What is LifeStyle Design?


 I arrived at LifeStyle Design, through a series of projects in Graduate School after years of studying various therapuetic modalities personally and porfessionally. Over time it has developed into a comrehensive and specialized set of change-based facilitation approaches founded in artisitc processes. The personal and professional development that have occured in the process have been utterly transformative in every sphere of my life. My mission is to support the transmission of this process out of myself into the lives of others by helping them design objects, experiences, and systems of sustainable growth. 


As a concept and practice, LifeStyle Design, is a culmination of my passion for the arts and education coupled with my professional and personal development in the Behavioral Sciences, Psychology, and other therapuetic modalities. Essentially, it is the culmination of health, healing, purpose, and a desire to put this work in service to a greater good. My discovery of and identification with the term 'lifestyle designer' happened in my second year of Graduate studies in the Arts and Consciousness program at JFK University in Berkeley, CA (2014) and continues to evolve with each new client, project, and community collaboration. 


This unique approach is founded in conscious engagment in and commitiment to a cyclical rotation of key creative and mindfulness practices, coupled with the belief that every aspect of our lives is an art form filled with limitless potential for learning, beauty, and meaning-making. It is based in the idea that by aligning with the creative genius of our inner children, through supported access to symbolic, intentional, and communal activity, we can align with the natural cycles that compose our lives to find precious healing, learning, and relationship building in the process. A single moment can seed tremendous change. Through simple kindness to ourselves and others, guided mindfulness, and authentic creative inquiry, we can actively support essential and necessary life change. We can choose to boldly embody the creative, adaptive people we need to be to meet life's inevitable shifts with consciousness, creativity, and vitality. 


LifeStyle Design is the choice to live life as creatively, consciously, and resourcefully as possible. It is the belief that all living things, as part of a larger whole, are interconnected... that our choices are rooted in this knowing and the impact of our decisions matter. 

Harry Potter Book Club

Harry Potter Book Club


Any fellow Harry Potter fans in the house?


Well, why not start a Book Club and use this template to help you record the action and your thoughts to share at each weekly gathering. There's no better way to enjoy a book- or most other things- than in the good company of other fans. 


When I was a kid, my family took me to England to visit some extended family just as JK Rowling was introducing the first book in Europe. My sister and I were hooked before it even hit the US and I truly enjoyed sharing our mutal discovery of the wizarding world together. I would have loved having this to deepen the experience and track my reading.


I illustrated this as a support for a 4th grade student who loved Harry Potter and read fluently, but was challenged by comprehension. Using this workesheet helped her develop accountability for reading regularly and for slowing down to understand and reflect on what she read.


Happy reading and sharing, my magical non-muggle friends!
