What is LifeStyle Design?
I arrived at LifeStyle Design, through a series of projects in Graduate School...it has developed into a comrehensive and specialized set of
facilitation and design-based approaches and services that create sustainable objects and systems to support personal and social change ...
As a concept and practice, LifeStyle Design, is a culmination of my lifelong passion for the arts and my professional, educational, and personal development in the Behavioral Sciences, Psychology, and other various therapuetic modalities. Essentially, it has been my lifelong pursuit for health, healing, purpose, and desire to put my work in service to a greater good. My discovery and arrival at this broad term happened in my second year of Graduate studies in the Arts and Consciousness program at JFK University in Berkeley, CA and continues to evolve with each new project and collaboration.
My approach to lifestyle design is founded in conscious engagment in and commitiment to various creatve practices, coupled with the belief that every aspect of our lives is an art filled with potential for learning, beauty, and meaning- making. My approach 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 and find precious healing, learning, and relationship in the process. Even the smallest meaningful moments can seed tremendous change. Through minfulness practices, simple kindness, and authentic supportive exploration, we can actively support essential and necessary life change and choose to boldly embody the creative, adaptive people we need to be to meet these inevitable changes consciously and healthfully.
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. It is the belief that our choices and their impact matter and the realization that if we slow down to consider our choices, we can really make a difference for ourselves and each other.
