About The Teacher

My name is Amy, and I’m from the suburbs Portland, OR. I am married and have the coolest and smartest daughter in the world. It was during a month-long Artist in Residence and yoga retreat at the Ananda Center Laurelwood that I was introduced to Awakening Arts. I loved it so much that I flew to Italy 2 months later and stayed for 3 months taking the Awakening Arts Academy’s ‘Transformative Arts Certification’ program. I returned from Italy 6 months ago and am deeply honored to have the opportunity teach. I have consciously cultivated creativity at various times in my life, but most specifically while leading Artist Way (a course for creative recovery by Julia Cameron) groups. I knew that I wasn’t alone in feeling blocked and creatively frustrated and I learned something new every time a retook the course. However, it wasn’t until I found Awakening Arts that I learned to get out of my head, get away from beliefs and judgements and just move. I learned, as I physically move my body, with or without music, I am moving energy and that same energy is either going to bounce around inside me or I can let it out!…

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
