Soulforce Arts merges art, wellbeing, and societal imperatives. At its core is Soulforce, a profound connection originating from one’s truest self, akin to Mahatma Gandhi’s satyagraha, or “firmness in pursuit of truth.”
A profound sensation of life and interconnectedness, Soulforce emerges when actions align with our innermost truths and desires. More than just an energy, it’s an intimate experience and a state of active engagement with life. Rooted in Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings, Soulforce draws from the Sanskrit satyagraha, which means an unwavering dedication to truth, aliveness, and wholeness.
The Soulforce Arts Approach is a comprehensive, holistic arts pedagogy that centers the transformative power of Soulforce in how you create, practice, perform, teach, and make a living as an artist.
One of the biggest challenges of being an artist is finding ways to sustain yourself while being true to your creative soul. The picture is all too common: you play gigs that don’t feed the soul, you invest countless hours into paintings with uncertain financial outcomes, or you take soulless parts just to climb the career ladder. The financial constraints may cause you to wonder: “Why did I choose the arts?”
Yet, deep within, the answer remains unchanged. It’s that unwavering passion, that brilliance within, known as your Soulforce. What if your means of livelihood not only acknowledges but also amplifies your Soulforce? An aligned livelihood harmoniously brings together your inner radiance, desired income, creativity, community needs, and fulfillment. Dive deep into realm of Soulforce Arts to carve out an enriching, creatively fulfilling, and rewarding artistic journey.
Have you ever felt like your physical limitations are stifling your artistic expression? It’s common for artists to grapple with discomfort, stiffness, or even pain during creative processes. This not only impacts your well-being but can also hamper the free flow of your Soulforce – that vibrant energy rooted in your most genuine truths and desires.
The Alexander Technique, a century-old method, offers a solution. By focusing on relieving muscular tension and strain, it enables you to rediscover natural movement, ease, and alignment. This doesn’t just relieve ailments like chronic pain or repetitive strain injuries; it also amplifies the conduit for your Soulforce, allowing your artistic endeavors to radiate with more authenticity and power.
