Sex and Creativity
My favorite subjects! … And also, what I seem to need to work with in this lifetime. I know that I fulfill the archetype of the wounded healer in both these modalities, as neither has come easily...
Welcome to my website! I hope you find some creative juice here.
Wether we care to admit it or not, creativity is our Birthright. It is not just for the talented few, the proffesional artists, those with the credentials. It belongs to all of us, each in our own unique expression.
In fact it is imperative for us all to acknowledge our creative genius, the special something we bring to the world. Regardless of wether we are aware of it or not, this is how we are creating our lives too. To witness our creative process, is to see how we create in our life.
Process art is a self-healing tool, using the transformative power of art-making to access our inner symbolic lives. It is a unique and inspiring way to find your path back to your authentic creative being, learning to let go and trust the process of life.
Come and experience art as a vehicle of transformation into your own unique self-expression, where you can create authentically without judgment.
ASTAR (Awakening Spirit Through Art) offers a safe and non-judgmental studio space for you to come and explore your ‘inner’ symbolic world revealed through the subconscious realms.
Here, you are encouraged to express yourself creatively in a spontaneous and authentic way, unblocking the channels of life force energy that are available to us all.
This opening, to more of the creative flow, will ripple into other areas of your life, allowing easier access to your unique creative spirit for your personal ventures; be they designing, cooking, starting a new business, writing, photography or being creative with numbers.
I am an ASTAR trained facilitator and a facilitator of "Sexual Awakening for Women" as trained by Shakti. I am also an artist, dancer, writer, lover, trickster, story-teller, wife and mother.
"Creativity is like a beautiful stream… it’s a flow of energy that’s running through everything.
Our job when we grow up is to remove the boulders out of the stream that are stopping that flow.
And it’s a real joy and incredible discovery to start to take away the blockages."
"The most liberating workshop I have ever done; it’s changed my relationship with myself; with my partner; with my life – it’s changed my world!
At no time during the course did I ever feel rushed or under pressure, Hayley holds time with grace and a sense of spaciousness."
"Hayley’s Sexual awakening art course was like a gift to me. The combination of creativity, process art, ritual and sexual awakening/spiritual processes is just amazing and very powerful.
At all times did I feel very held by Hayley, the wonderful group of woman of all different ages and the beautiful studio. I learned so much! Hayley brings herself fully into the course on all levels: her preparation, her presence and she adds a beautiful feminine playfulness to everything. I can’t recommend the course highly enough to all the awakening sisters out there.. I just want more of it."
"I had gone to an intro session for a sexual awakening course just before a friend recommended I look at Hayley's offering. What drew me in particular to Hayley's course was the art aspect - what could be more inviting than the prospect of awakening through art?!
My whole life I had considered myself an appreciator of art, but never an artist. For as long as I can remember, I’ve yearned to express the myriad of things burning inside of me, but felt blocked and heavily frustrated that I couldn't seem to. And whenever I created, I judged myself. I am still in awe of how quickly and completely I dived into each process and how much this course has given me. I opened up and became vulnerable in ways I didn't think I was ready to be. This is one of the greatest gifts I could have given to myself.
Hayley is an impeccable facilitator - her words land exactly how they're meant to, and she brings so much of herself into the course in the most raw, authentic and beautiful way. She is right there with each of us, opening up, and creates a safe space without judgment for us all to flower and express as freely as we allow ourselves. Not to mention the fact that I have become aware of and started to access my divine feminine. And divine masculine (I didn't even realise he existed!). And the journey has just begun, I am so thankful."
"On the path of continued awakening, and having let my passion and love of art die once I left school, and seeking sisterhood connection, Hayley's Art of Awakening Course was an obvious fusion of magic for me to embrace.
As a result I reconnected and awakened my creative spirit, let go of aspects of my egoic illusion that were keeping me stuck, and embodied a power within myself I haven't experienced before. This allowed me to have the courage to make decisions that have changed the course of my life. Thank you Hayley for being a catalyst for such deep change.
For anyone who is ready to embrace their divine feminine power, connect deeply with themselves, others and the world, this course is a must. Hayley's ability to Intuitively guide you, and the group, hold the space and be vulnerable on her own journey of awakening to more of her own power, is a gift to be a part of."
