Spirit Guides are helpful beings of the non-physical plane who aid, advise and heal us. They give us wisdom and protection, especially when we journey inward. Spirit Guides can appear in the form of animals, humans, crystals, plants, angels, ancestors, gods, goddesses, faeries, and other spiritual beings.  They come to teach people important lessons in life. We communicate with our Spirit Guides through meditation, visions, dreams, signs, omens, art, and other ways we perceive the invisible realm.  LFAC’s Spirit Guides show especially focuses on art that helps viewers understand the concept of spirit guides, reach beyond mundane reality, and meet the viewer’s own allies on the otherside. The guides are there to help us if we just open the path between the worlds.

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.
