The healing power of our art seems to have emerged as a theme this week. And those who know Lindly Haunani can attest to her healing skills as well as her mastery of color, and her polymer clay talents. Lindly is a CHTP (Certified Healing Touch Practitioner) and has spent the past six years in the intensive study and practice of energetic healing modalities.

This cool shrine (front and back shown) is the class sample for her "Healing Journey" classes at Maureen Carlson's facility this July 22-23 (scroll way down to July). Inside is a piece of polymer chocolate, a small stone and a rainbow slinky (humor, lightness, food for thought).

Says Lindly, "The design and construction of a small portable artist’s shrine is an intensely personal, illuminating and enjoyable process. Students explore heartfelt communication via color, texture and form."

Students are encouraged to ask themselves, "As an artist, what makes my heart sing?" What a great question to ask ourselves today.

        Lindly’s talent and teaching abilities are phenomenal! Run, don’t walk, to the class nearest you!

          I love to take classes that address my whole being – not just my technical or artistic skills – and that is what Lindly’s classes do. That is why I keep asking her back to teach at Maureen’s. I need her classes – and others with similar intent – to keep me focused on what I want to say, who I am and WHY I do art. THANK YOU, Lindly.

            I had the honor to sit across from Lindly at Shrinemont. Can you imagine a whole week just watching Lindly work? What a thrill!!!Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend Ravensdale…drat that job…it just keeps getting in the way of my clay!!!
