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.

It's always a good time to get centered in yourself through low-stakes creativity.  This is an invitation to honor your whole self where you are and a chance to map a path forward leveraging your creativity and intuition. Past participants have left this workshop with fresh intentions, clarity, and tangible steps to help them realize their intentions moving forward.

 

HOW:

You hold the answers within already. 

This is a guided opportunity to uncover them.

 

∞Together, we will map the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual work that will best serve you in the year ahead.

∞Through symbolism and guided interpretation (using this unique ancient framework), we will assess which areas of personal development to focus your attention on in the year ahead.

 

 

NOTE:

∞When I was first introduced to this practice in grad school eight years ago, it had a profound impact on how I viewed and prioritized my personal growth. It was especially powerful for me at the time becuase I was just coming to understand the role of my creativity as an integral part of my sprituality. It also helped me see that this work is deeply tied to my mental and emotional helath.

It's all connected, right?

 

∞I now use this process at least once per year, often seasonally. Each time, I find peace of mind knowing that the personal work I uncover is crucial, foundational even, to the external success I wish to create. Let's use your creativity and intuition to map a holistic action plan toward deeper personal growth this year. Leave knowing that it can also be a bridge to your professional goals. 

 

PS) You DO NOT need to be an artist to gain value from this workshop. While this workshop leverages your creativity (as a conduit for your intuitve wisdom), it is not about your artistic talent. If you can draw stick people, you have do this with style!
