I developed Lifecycle as I healed from personal trauma. As a very young woman I was hidden away by my mother for the length of my pregnancy…after I refused the suggestion of my boss to accept her gift of a weekend flight to Mexico for an abortion. My infant son was relinquished to the adoption system. I made him a promise that if we would ever meet he would be proud of his roots. Weeks after his birth I made a fateful phone call wanting to visit artist friends, including my son’s musician father, on a well-known college campus. The phone call turned out to be a set-up. I stepped into an empty house and as I turned to leave I heard the words, “Touch that door and your dead.” I was entrapped for the day and sexually attacked by what I call three ‘angels from hell’.
It took me years to come to the awareness that on that Sunday afternoon these three miscreants took me into the deepest darkest spaces so that I would have the opportunity to chart my way to the polar opposite for my life…the highest lightest expansiveness of Joy Medicine.
The man who found me afterward gave me “something to help me feel better”. In that instant I began an Owsley Windowpane LSD trip. This pure mind expanding drug turned out to be the gift. It was an experience that lifted me away from the battlefield of what my life was. The trip literally took me away from every aspect of the life I had been living and introduced me to the model for what my art/life would be…gardens, yoga, art-making and focus upon inner peace through direct modeling brought to me by Alice, my mentor for 26 years: Here’s a bit of our story.
The gift of experiencing such deep trauma was that it placed me squarely onto my lifelong healing path.
Slowly in the first 18 months came a return to my art practice. I had known since second grade that I would be an artist. My body was petrified that someone would see me and hurt me again so I moved my hand tentatively on paper. I was deeply afraid of going out into the world. I didn’t know the term agoraphobic yet experienced it and pushed through it for a full sixteen years; making my art, exhibiting. My journal/drawing practice began my slow process of gaining my true strength. Next I came my yoga practice, Hatha and Raja. Two years in I began talk therapy as well as multiple forms of body therapy, hands-on healing, float tanks and silent retreats including an 18 week stretch of solitude in a small cottage on an island in South Carolina.
As I became stronger I became an activist for women and girls healing from trauma. I attended rape crisis training and learned of the documented effects of rape. I began working in domestic abuse shelters as a volunteer as I pursued my work as artist/healer. Along the way I was gently mentored and encouraged to study handwriting analysis as a way to ‘read marks on paper’ and to thus identify hidden blocks and strengths helping others come back home to themselves.
In 1990 my studio relocated to an historic landmark building on a ten acre campus on a hill overlooking the college campus mentioned above. The landmark building had been closed 8 years earlier and had been a psychiatric hospital. The book The Cracker Factory was written by Joyce Rebeta-Burditt. My studio took up the entire fourth floor in the former high-security lock-up ward for women. In this cavernous space I began my most focused community outreach. I invited 12 artists to first Saturday ‘Creativity Salons’ which were rich performance art experiences that went for 5.5 years.
The decades of healing/shamanic processes, my on-going creative engagements; the designing and leading of countless programs; owning my gallery, creating public art, working as a creative coach and experiencing the deep connection made with hundreds of clients brings me here to meet with you today.
I invite you to experience my program: Lifecycle, a personal GPS creative tool kit. I invite you to feel the power of making joy the vocation of your mind.
“You speak to women inclined to self-examination. Women who recognize their feminine/creative energy…their connection to Earth Energy.
Earth Energy and Sky Energy, however narrow or broadly one labels that relationship, anyone curious about or in touch with the cycle of creativity seen in nature:
This is a place I want to return.”
Sunny Mosley, Artist/Writer
