Visionary Embodiment

Transform Yourself, your Creativity and Your Connection with Nature

1:1 mentorship is ideal for those wanting to recreate themselves as photographic artists and have a blast doing it!  The three month or six month tracts are immerse and joyous experiences into artistic discovery.   If you've had the deep desire to take yourself and your photography into new visionary realms of creative mastery, this is what you've been waiting for.  


Visionary Embodiment is not just about a new way of seeing.  This journey is about awakening the mind, body and soul of YOU as the creative visionary being that you are.  This is about using the art of photography and our connection with nature as a sacred spiritual practice and pathway for total transformation.  


“Each of us is an artist of our days; the greater our integrity and awareness, the more original and creative our time will become.”  ~ John O'Donohue
