Our Story - The Heartist has been around for lifetimes, but represents a new genre of archetype.  A lover.  A healer.  An artist. One who allows the unfolding mystery of life, love, purpose and relationships to be his or her muse for creation.

What IS a Heartist?

The Heartist, has walked the earth for lifetimes, yet is among a new generation of archetypes.  She embodies a way of living, loving and creating from an awakened heart that is capable of feeling the full spectrum of our Humanity.  The Heartist has an immense capacity to create from the “raw materials” of life, finding nourishing channels to create beauty in the world through forms of expression that make Her come alive while effortlessly healing and igniting other human hearts.  My mission is to humbly and fearlessly serve as your Headmistress of Permission in the movement to invite those who are yearning to be a full spectrum, free range human by tapping into the core of your creative heART and soul.

I used to call myself an activist…

  I used to call myself an activist. I ran a non-profit advocating for healing and put programs into action to help further my fierce passion for a more thriving and just world. Now I call myself an artist…actually a heArtist. And low and behold the music and art that flows through me advocates for healing and helps me channel my fierce passion for a more thriving and just world  Passion can be labeled, identified,

You Know You are in Your HeART When…

You effortlessly attract other heartists.   Life gives us so many opportunities to practice the art of choice. Choosing reason or intuition. Choosing yes or no. Choosing fact or faith. There is not necessarily a right or wrong.  And they are not necessarily mutually exclusive, but there is a distinct energetic experience when we choose from a place of trusting our inner wisdom, or as some would say choosing love over fear, and in my

Embodying the Queen

  This was the smoothest, and most graceful burn I have experienced to date, and I got to fully step into my intention of embodying my inner Queen (We called her "Queen Be"). I am feeling the shift, electrifying my energy field and its inspiring a little free flow...let's see what comes out, shall we?   The Queen in me doesn't need a Mirror on the Wall to tell her she is seen. She shows.

Finding My HeART

Finding my HeART after years of artistic starvation. ...I started writing this blog last night and it flowed into something that feels more like an excerpt from as unedited part of The HeARTist's Way book, so thank you for being part of the raw unfoldings in real time and stay tuned for more! *** Finding my HeART   For 34 years you could say I was artistically anorexic. I was that kid in art class

From the heART of Southie

On the bus ride through the heART of Boston, I stopped to share a moment of song. I travel a lot and I often find that some of my favorite moments to create and sing are on planes, trains and automobiles, or at the stations in between. If you are an emotionally or energetically sensitive person you can often feel the amalgamation of feelings, sensations, emotions all mixed up in a big stew of transition.

Embracing my Edge

A dear friend of mine gave me a beautiful reflection the other day. “You’re a little rough around the edges sometimes,” he said. In the past, maybe even last year or a few months ago I would have felt defensive and put him in the category of “people who don’t get me.” But this time I was receptive. I was open to feedback and I wanted to feel his words and where they felt true

A New Way to Harmonize

Today, on our Free Your Voice call we uncovered a new way to harmonize….with our intention! A New Way to Harmonize You may be wondering what the *&^% I am talking about. (insert your own 4 letter word…remember, I am a facilitator, not a teacher)  So let me give you a little context.  I was trying to teach a call and response song, Altar of Love, playing my ukelele and having our group repeat verses after I

Ashes to Ashes

Sometimes making love to life and living the heartist's way is about creating art in the midst of pain, discord and grief. I am going through a tough circumstance with someone in my life right now where my voice--my truth--feels cut off and denied. It’s no wonder I woke up this morning with a bad sore throat and this poem… Ashes to Ashes Gripped Tight Can’t Speak No Sound Voice Weak     Swallowed Down

Meet My heART

My jewelry is more than a product. It is a message. It is my heart. It is my offering of love, healing and empowerment. It is my gift. It springs from the well of my soul's  journey--telling tales of heartbreak and self love, of embracing our talents and our rough edges, of coming into our soul's calling and of continuing to grow, heal and bloom. My jewelry is an experience. It is sacred adornment. It (read more)
