Beyond 9/11: Humans Healing Nature shows the transformation of consciousness from the sense of fear, chaos, and powerlessness of 9/11 to a more conscious, peaceful, and empowered world view that interconnects humanity, nature, and spirituality. The artwork includes both direct references to the events of 9/11, as well as artwork that shows humans relating to nature in positive, life-enhancing ways.

The Frog Directive Project is a three-part series of spiritual art exhibits and accompanying rituals, workshops, performances, and symposia taking place from September 2011 – January 2013. The Project is based on the visions and spiritual journey experienced by shamanic practitioner Joan Forest Mage which conveyed messages for improving the relationship of humans and nature through transformational art.

The mission of Life Force Arts Foundation (LFA) is to advance the field of spiritual art through artistically excellent exhibits, events, and publications that explore the connection of art and spirituality. We define spiritual art as visual, literary, or performing art that flows from spiritual practice, strives to connect the audience with Spirit, and creates spiritual awakening, healing, or evolution. We focus on the arts as a common ground of human expression, where artists and audiences of diverse spiritual traditions can honor each other, and share their personal and collective experiences of the spiritual aspect of life. LFA’s goals are to develop spiritual artists, the spiritual arts audience, and the spiritual arts community. The Foundation operates Life Force Arts Center (LFAC), Chicago’s spiritual art gallery and performance space, which presents visual art exhibits, dance, theater, and music performances, author book signings, and workshops with artists who are experts in spiritual artmaking.
