We are a community of creators and contemplatives, committed to flourishing a new world into being through the process of “SoulScaping”.
SoulScaping enables you to access moments of clarity through a simple imaginal practise, and create a piece of art inspired by your experience.
No artistic experience is necessary.
You just need a pulse, and the ability to worry. The rest is a bonus!
"I’m learning to trust myself and have a new level of understanding, and a deep appreciation of the statement that ‘I have everything I need within me. As for your programmes, I can’t even describe the power of them … I just know and feel it … " - Course Participant.
I created The SoulScaping Collective to bring together everyday creators and contemplatives to re-imagine ourselves and re-create our world.
By "everyday" - I mean "ordinary." People like me, with busy lives, who want to make the world a better place. And yet - with a deep down urge to CREATE... something... an artwork, (a book, a poem, a business, a movement... who knows?!)
Thats your inner creator.
You have a still small voice inside that lets you know,.. there is something more.
Thats your inner contemplative.
And guess what.. when we pay attention to that voice, and that urge... you transform the "ordinary" into something extraordinary.
Thats why we are here.
We exist for one purpose: To light each other up with the power of our creativity.
Here you will find coaches, leaders, business owners, mothers, fathers.. maybe even one or two artists.
But we are not defined by our profession. We are defined by our call to express the aliveness inside us.
That urge may express itself to paint just for you. (That may feel selfish - Its not selfish in a bad way. Its selfish in a good way! It's a Soul Indulgence.)
Maybe its because your art teacher at school said you couldn't).. but deep down you know you can.. And that is awesome. We love that. You will be right at home here. You will feel supported and nourished in your first tentative creative steps.
This is a rarified space to create and share your SoulScapes, and feel nourished to grow you, just for you.
Some of us are concerned with global issues. Climate change, poverty, polarities that are affecting all of us. We have a deep down knowing that somehow - our creative can change this.. Not only that it can.. but it is changing this.
We love that.
Some are here because they are using SoulScaping to deepen their spiritual journey.
We love that too.
Maybe you will direct that creative energy into something beyond you:
Maybe you create something that affects your relationships, with your loved ones, your family, or this shimmering planet, or this resplendent cosmos.
The SoulScape process combines your inner contemplative and your inner creator.
We create a piece of art inspired by our inner experience. Its that simple.
We do it in a few simple steps that anyone can do.
This process takes the form of "self-paced" courses, group courses, writings, and invitations to live sessions.
I personally curate art, ideas and experiences for you to thrive in your heart of hearts. (Maybe one day, after you've done this for long enough, I can train you will to lead a group yourself. Id like that!)
"Soul": - "Your inner symphony of light and darkness."
"Scape.." (like seascape or landscape... but.. for your soul, and our collective soul)
Your soul can be nurtured like a garden.
Think of "The SoulScape" as a place where all of our "inner gardens" join up together.
When I light up, you light up. When you light up, I light up.
That is why it is so powerful when we paint together.
To help deepen your Soul Journey, and build the practise of SoulScaping, this community is guided through a series of highly experiential courses are carefully curated for you to experience the unique multidimensional facets of your Soul and The Soul Of The World.
Some of these include:

Getting results through sharing in the SoulScaping Collective. As you dive into the course content and meet the community here in "Feeling Truly alive", you're on the first step to a path of mastery. While it's not necessarily easy, the transformation we'll get together matters. Share your work, and comment on each others journey to inspire each other along the way.
The act of being seen, and seeing others is what makes this collective practise so powerful and beautiful.
"Realising Your Original Your Original Self" is the SoulScaping Signature course!
This Signature Course is carefully sequenced into three Phases, and this is Phase I.
In Phase I we delve into the unique facets of your Self Image. (FYI - Phase II deals with your world image, and Phase III deals with your Soul Image.)
Your Self Image is the centre of awareness that says "I can do this, but I cant do that. I am this, but I am not that."
It's here you discover fresh energy by seeing you who you really are, what you really want, and where you are really going through six SoulScaping Sessions.
These six sessions are:

"Even through these sessions are two weeks apart, I feel like it's a continual journey. This course has helped me reconnect with parts of myself I had forgotten. Its been uncomfortable at times, especially when I see my true self.. and I say "wow! there she is!"

One outward expression of SoulScaping is The Soul Mosaic.
This is how it looks so far. Next year it will look different.
Why? Because maybe your artwork will be in there if you want it to be.
Here we piece the fragments of our aliveness together in one shimmering mosaic. This image is a reflection fo the world as it really is. A world pieced together by hopes, dreams fears, and a multitude of experiences , held together in an intricate web of relationships to each other, the planet and beyond.
If you want your artwork to be part of this Mosaic just select the topic "soul Mosaic" when you post it!)
Soul is like the subtle connective tissue that weaves us all together.
With a sustained practise of SoulScaping, we can realise we are not separate or alone. Our lives are not separate. Our minds are not separate. Our souls are not separate. They are uniquely held together in something more than us.
We go from existential anxiousness to existential trust.
We go from feeling separate to knowing we are interwoven, with each other and this planet.
Think about that.
Every time you post your artwork, and you comment on someones post, you are piecing together this connective tissue... this fabric of a new way of being, centred around your creativity.
3000 people (ish) have painted SoulScapes so far, over my lifetime. Its taken the form of leadership workshops, conferences, work in schools,... It's had a lot of expressions. It's been fun..
Buts what if SoulScapings REAL purpose is through This Collective?!
In 1960, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi predicted that one percent of a population practicing the TM (meditation) technique would produce measurable improvements in the quality of life for the whole population.
More and more research has been put into this: (https://research.miu.edu/maharishi-effect/)
The research has along way to go, but I feel the HOPE in this. (And that the heck - it will be fun anyway...)
I have experienced the benefits of mediating and praying as part of a collective. Its like being carried on the wings of the prayers, and mediation around you... but can be short lived unless the practise is sustained into every day life.
We regularly experience the beautiful power of 6-8 people creating together. It doesn't take much to make a quantum shift in our energy state. In this holographic universe, the statement becomes real:
"When I light up.. you light up. When you light up.. I light up."
Now imagine this.. what if 30, 100, 1000, 10,000 SoulScapers sustained a collective practise of flourishing each other, and this world into being through the power of SoulScaping?!
The possibilities of what would be released amongst us would be truly extraordinary. They lie just at the edges of our collective imagination!
It's clear we are increasingly living in a world where the old rules don't apply. The old way of seeing US as separate from the world.. the old way of being that we are separate from each other.
We have been born into a 500 year old myth that tells us that this is so:
This myth states - "Its only real if you can measure it - its only valuable if its useful."
This myth - like all the other myths that have defined culture in the past.. is only partially true. But this myth is like a program that has run its course - yet we still desperately hold onto it.
It's so deeply entrenched, we need help out side of ourselves to free ourselves from it. You cant help someone unless they realise they need help. This has now become true of the human species.
By continually SoulScaping, we increasingly build a relationship with a centre of reference outside of ourselves.. and through this process, we can free ourselves from these old rules.
We have become potbound by our own paradigm.
Until we redefine what is truly valuable, Its no wonder we are pulling up the very floor boards we stand on, and creating one devastating disaster after another.
In this safe space, through consistent acts of mutual creativity, we get to re-create our mythology.. the stories that we tell about ourselves about who we are, and what the world really is.
This has always been the true and central role of art, in any culture.
Thats why, what we are creating here is a Soul - Renaissance. A birthing of the world through the eyes of soul.
Now that is what I mean, by re-imagining ourselves and re-creating our world.
Are you willing to journey there together with me, and be transformed by what we find?
A few things you’ll see quickly that make SoulScaping different:
There are More Ways for You to Meet Each Other. There are more ways for you to meet people who are near you, who fall into the same categories, or who care about the same topics. I can’t get this in free groups or on a website elsewhere.
We Can Bring Together Experiences, Art and The Collective. This means I’m freed up to bring you new, fresh ideas and new practices that you can take into your daily life.
I’m aiming to make your experience here awesome. I want you to get five key things from SoulScaping:
Mutually enriching connectivity with a group of creators committed to supporting each others aliveness, both here, and out in the world.
A flourishing ecosystem of online courses (like "The Power Of Attention"), and live meet-ups to support your creative practise.
Build the skills of: mastering your attention, extending the wings of your imagination, and releasing energy through creativity.
AWESOME COURSES to build resilience, purpose, freedom, and Soul Alignment.. and MUCH MORE!
A safe space to share art, experiences, and ideas (not advice) around our shared mission to flourish the aliveness. (Every time to share a post, or cheer a comment, you are actively strengthening the connective tissue that makes this space special.)
Find a little inspiration, thought-provoking conversations, and elevated perspective each and every day.
To make this a reality, I’m going to need your help. Every time you contribute a story, experience, or idea, you’re building a knowledge base every member of this Collective can tap to make better decisions. And when you invite in as few as two new members, you’re adding rocket fuel to what this community can accomplish together. It doesn’t get any better than that.
