Art For You - Nancy Brockett

The Bond Between Art and Spirituality

The spiritual dimension is common to human life. Inspiration, dreams, beliefs, "up & out", connection to something beyond oneself ... all are aspects of what we call "spirit".

Art often is inspirational in that it can take us to places beyond the "here and now", can give shape to dreams and beliefs, can express emotions, and taps into imagination. And creating pieces of art takes a person into the realm of spirit and soul.

Nancy Brockett employs her experience with art and spirituality in both her artwork and her counseling.

"Each piece of my art is a prayer,” Nancy states, “in the sense that as I paint I am present to God and receptive to connection with Sacred Presence. My paintings develop in an organic process that often feels like co-creation, and as I continue to interact with a piece, more of its meaning unfolds."

In Soul Support Counseling she makes use of imagination, metaphor and drawing to help people access inner wisdom for healing. Nancy offers classes in using art to foster growing a soul.
