Revivalism is increased spiritual interest or renewal in the life of a society, with a local, national or global effect.
This meaning is not the same use of the the term "revival" to refer to a church or an evangelistic meeting or series of meetings.
The Revival Project, art as healing studios were born out of my own process of entering the fire of growth and transformation. As humans we are many layered beings and sometimes we need to dig deep and let go to move forward.
My name is Amy Leiter and I am an Artist, Nonprofit Founder and Collaborator, Board Certified Art Therapist, Licensed Professional Counselor, Transformational Coach, and Collaborator in Denver, CO. All of my training and experiences allow me to offer a spectrum of healing and transformational experiences from a Transpersonal lens. This means I meet you where you are at and I am open to engaging with all of you (mental, emotional, physical and spiritual). The interventions and services I provide for adults, teens, and pre-teens may be art, art as healing and mindfulness or therapeutic based. I specialize in work through Mind-Body connection and Art. I will support you in cultivating a deeper connection with your higher self and explore a variety of healing methods through the use of art, mindfulness, and other eclectic modalities. I am committed to work with the nonprofit sector and to give of myself to heal individuals and our art community as the Founding Partner of Violet Hive Art.
Art and Art Therapy are for everyone, even if you do not think of yourself as an artist! And good news even if you don't, I believe! Art does not always have to be about the product and often in our work together you will find the process is more important and you will grow to love what you discover. The creative process can encourage deep personal growth and healing. Through art you may be able to access the parts of yourself that you thought you lost or you may have never knew existed. I will support and facilitate a safe and honest space where together we will work with any challenges, support your imagination and creativity to help you move toward a positive thought process and self-acceptance.
When I make art it is a meditation, my mind is quiet, it is a state of presence. When I share my art it is sharing a piece of my experience and soul. When I work and connect with others in their healing I engage with my highest part of myself, I am learning, and guiding people back to themselves and their internal fire.
