Stephanie Gray is a process arts facilitator, Creative Self - Discoverist, writer and artist and is co-founder of Creative Nectar Studio.
Stephanie has been process painting since 1996 and facilitating since 2009. She has been a volunteer artist for the “Memories in the Making” program of the Heartland chapter of The Alzheimer’s Association, an Americorp VISTA volunteer at VanGo Mobile Arts, a studio assistant to Sarah Oblinger of Paint or Die Studio, and a resident artist and volunteer at VALA Gallery in Mission, KS.
Her main focus is working with people as they make their way through life transitions - trauma, grief and spiritual awakening - by providing suggestions on how to stay connected to self during shifting times. Stephanie combines process art making, creative writing, active listening, heart-based questioning and over 20 years of her own self-discovery practice to assist individuals in living a more authentic life, cultivating awareness of their sacred selves.
Stephanie facilitates creative self-discovery in person from her home studio and on line with folks all over the globe.
I personally believe we are in the beginning stages of a great transition, an evolution affecting us as individuals and our personal belief systems as well as our society and societal structures.
Transitions are very often messy and painful like the birthing process itself. Things may initially appear chaotic and feel unfamiliar and confusing and there will be expansion and contraction as the old begins to die away and the new slowly takes its place.
I also believe that the only way through this is to go within and become curious about who it is that dwells in the innermost levels of my being. Getting to know my most sacred and powerful self, the one who holds abundant wisdom and is able to discern truth, will provide me what is needed in these times.
I combine over 20 years of personal process art and healing experience and 9 plus years of process art facilitation with creative tools to offer assistance for anyone wanting to discover their own truth and power within.
Here's a video I did with my friend and DM Facilitator, Leela Haris regarding the shift that is happening:
