LAF Gallery Fall Art Opening

Come and meet our new resident artists at Living Arts Foundation! We have curated a beautiful and harmonious display for your viewing and purchasing pleasure. We are excited to present these Artists and enjoy connecting with them around these beautiful pieces at this unique Fall Art Gallery at LAF!

We will be offering live music, hors d'oeuvres and elixirs.

About Brett Warniers:
He is a digital artist and animator from Asheville, North Carolina. Enticed into neon nether worlds each night, he follows the instructions in his visions, creating a synthesis of digital fantasy and new-age surrealism. A multimedia artist, he has created large scale digital paintings with exquisite detail, a cartoon from another planet called "Quantum Soup", and a catalog of psychedelic retro-future visuals. All of his art has a simple message behind each story - an interpretation of the code for finding our own personal fulfillment in life.

GavinGer:
He is an Asheville based painter originally from the hills of Ohio. Gavin's work focuses on the connections we hold to our animal planet's cohabitants while breaking the rules of perspective by acknowledging the space that lies between. Blending psychedelic imagery and fantastical realism, Gavin seeks to create worlds that blend choas with harmony by finding the codes woven into the fibers of reality and allowing the finite to reveal the infinite.

Blais Bellenoit
He grew up in rural Massachusetts with my father, David Bellenoit and my Mother Rita Krupowicz. I was fortunate enough to be surrounded by art from the time I was born and was raised in a very creative environment. My mother was a professional Illustrator and worked on such books as The Hundred Year Christmas by David Morrell and The Talisman by Stephen King. My father was a salesman and small business owner. In his spear time he played guitar and often gigged as a live musician. As a result, I grew learning how to draw and play music, a gift that I am forever grateful for. Creativity ran deep in my family. My brother Adam Caddick had tremendous artistic skill as well and was a big inspiration for me in my early years.

Sound of Dharma - Sound Bath

Sound Healing is one of my favorite modalities because it directly effects the subconscious on many levels. Think about music in a movie, most scenes have very intentionally placed music to pull your emotional body in for entertainment. Similarly, I will be using more ambient music to set you into deep emotional states where negative thought forms, limiting beliefs, and more can come up to be released (this can be done in other ways, I just really love sound). Beyond a cellular level, cells are simply made of vibrations. What better way to effect your vibration than using vibrations directly? In the form of sound!?

During this journey, we will be tuning in and connecting to the breath, reaching states of deep relaxation, and witnessing expansion of our awareness on subtle levels. All of this will be supported by a journey of sound. I will be utilizing an array of ancient instruments to hold space for and to encourage you to experience these states, its up to you to climb the ladder of sound to get there. You will be experiencing the sounds of 10 crystal singing bowls, a gong, flutes, didgeridoo, vocal toning, a hand pan, and more as we take this 90 minute adventure together!

Sound Healing has been utilized for thousands of years as a medicine for many different ailments. Look it up and see how many different things people use it for! It seems endless!

***Bring a yoga mat, a blanket, a pillow, and/or anything else that will offer you contentment as you fully relax and fully receive!***
***Bring water

MORE INFO ON KAMBO:

What is Kambo and why use it?
Kambö comes from a secretion produced by the Phyllomedusa bicolor frog, more commonly known as The Green Monkey Frog or Sapo. This powerful, beautiful, bright green frog releases a neuro-toxin that is collected and administered onto our skin, where it transforms into a cleanser and immune boosting healing agent in the human body.

The Kambö medicine delivers a series of bioactive peptides – short chains of amino acids that bind to human cell receptors and catalyze transformative physical detoxification and psychic, spiritual renewal. The frogs are not harmed in the process of offering its secretion.

Kambö does not have any psychoactive compounds and is not considered a psychedelic medicine. It has been studied for its unique immune boosting properties, as well as its ability to clear infections, pathogens and resolve chronic illnesses and diseases of various kinds.

Psychospiritually, Kambö has been associated with clearing the mind, body, and spirit of unwanted waste and baggage known as ‘Panema’. ‘Panema’ is the accumulated plaque that we all carry on and inside of us, not only from past hardship and trauma, but from what we inherit from our ancestors as well. The clearing away of the toxic build up is facilitated by a toxin itself. The venomous secretion produced by The Green Monkey Frog not only gives our immune and lymphatic system a major wake up call, but often facilities deeper emotional healing along the way as it helps us to clear out what no longer serves us. Kambö continues to be studied scientifically, and we are in an ongoing process of learning about the unique chemistry and effects that this medicine harbors.

We hope you say YES to this phenomal healing journey of working with the benevolent Kambo tree frog! 🐸 💕 🔮

Back to Earth: A Sensual Sonic Soiree

Do you ever look up at the stars and feel a pang in your heart, like there's a part of you just longing to go home?

When you witness the systems and human behaviors all around you, do you ever find yourself feeling out of place, wondering why on Earth your spirit chose to come to this dense reality?

Do you have a deep desire to see things shift towards greater harmony on this planet, but aren't sure what you can do to help bring about this change?

Do you sometimes struggle to feel connected with your body, with tribe, and with your primal sensual nature?

You are not alone. There are many of us who share this same sense, who feel the call to help anchor in the next wave of cosmic consciousness sweeping the planet. Yet we often feel alone, overwhelmed and unsure of how to survive, let alone how to thrive and truly make an impact.

And so, we gather.

In honor of the New Moon, we come together to recover the seeds of our soul's unique expression and to plant those seeds deep in the Earth with help from our spirit tribe, those who understand and share a similar vision.

Join Sacred Embodiment Facilitator Hannah Borababy and Special Musical Guests Ashley Cash and Jim Cash of Woven Green as they join forces to guide you on a Sacred Sound Journey that will bring you back home to Source to recover your soul mission, attune your energy centers, and anchor your Divine Purpose into your Body, into Community, and into the Earth.

Come be a part of this special opportunity to embark upon...

✨A Sound Healing Activation
✨A Guided Soul Retrieval
✨Primal Alchemical Movement
✨Heart-opening Community Ritual
✨Sacred Sensual Embodiment

Doors Open at 6:30pm
Ceremony begins at 7pm
Doors close at 7:15pm

Community Co-Working

What is WORK FLOW WEDNESDAY?
A pop-up Community Co-Working space
Join us for a weekly come-and-go, small group meet-up to focus on personal projects related to creative economy in a relaxing, artistic community space. 
Together we can work and share our knowledge base
to further creative and professional development.

Come and go | 10am to 2pm | every Wednesday

Coffee + tea + light snacks will be provided. 
$5 suggested donation. 
Donations of tea, coffee and/or snacks
are welcomed, but not required.

gather | connect | focus | skill share | learn | manifest

Work Flow Wednesdays provide dedicated time to creative personal or group projects and planning, and will begin by asset mapping ourselves as artists, writers, designers, herbalists, entrepreneurs, jack’s and jill’s of all trades, etc.

In a community setting we can focus more intently on personal creative projects (like sitting at a coffee shop and working solo), but have the added bonus of talented and experienced community members available to support and assist when we hit snags in our work-flow.

This is a time to focus and/or receive assistance in some of the following areas:
- Writing / Blog development
- Marketing / Social media
- Fundraising / Crowdfunding / Grant writing
- Eco-conscious business
- Small business start-up
- Website development / graphic design

If you are a creative person and/or small business owner, working to manifest your vision in the world via your creativity, this is the place to be for Wednesday brunch!

In the same way that group exercise creates more strength and accountability, our goal at these meet-up’s is to focus, set goals, learn new skills for self-sufficiency as creative professionals, and manifest our goals while propelling us all forward with more efficiency and less stress.

WHERE AND WHAT IS GOING ON?

Living Arts Foundation at the Living Arts Gathering House
(13 minutes west of Asheville via I-40)
51 Old Candler Town Rd | Candler, NC 28715

All public areas of the property are open to community members to work. However, projects involving power tools are discouraged during Work Flow.

The QUIET CAFE
Located just past the kitchen and bathroom

Relaxing zone to work on the computer, writing, drawing, etc. with minimal conversation and noise.
Resource center is located in Quiet Cafe. If you need help printing, please ask for help.

We use Pomodoro timing to help stay focused. Come and go as you need, but please try to time your breaks (and questions, conversations, etc.) with the ones we’ll be taking every 25 minutes.
