Every person has a True Self or Soul which is their essence or core energy. A person’s soul can be identified as their individual energy field, their in-born gifts (talents) and the unique mission they are designed to accomplish in this lifetime. The True Self is meant to be embraced by a Creative Community, the tribe where the individual can fully express their gifts and mission. In this show, participating artists have the opportunity to express their experiences with the True Self through their artwork, thus encouraging the viewers to discover and live from their own souls.

The Soul’s Essence is the first of two complimentary exhibits presented by Life Force Arts Ensemble in 2020 and 2021 based in the Life Force Arts Method (LFAM), a powerful psychological and spiritual tool for building positive relationships from one’s inner world to the outer world. The Soul’s Essence (February 1, 2020 – September 17, 2021) explores the True Self or Soul, which is a person’s individual energy field, their in-born gifts and talents, and the unique mission they are designed to accomplish in this lifetime. The Soul’s Home (date in 2021 TBD) focuses on the Creative Community, the tribe that embraces, nurtures and values each individual’s True Self, gifts and mission.
