Krisztina Lazar - Ritual Paintings
Krisztina is a visionary artist, ritual performer and healer. Having studied the mische technique with some of the greatest visionary artists of our time, she teaches the technique herself. The mische technique allows an artist to create an image out of highlights and transparent glazes, rather than shadows and outlines. This transforms the world we see into brilliant light and glowing colors that lasts well beyond just working on the canvas. She’s taken this technique and adapted to several forms of healing through the art making process, creating mandalas and magic images that continue to inspire this new way of seeing. Coming from a background of yoga, meditation and visionary journeys, Krisztina combines the teachings from a variety of sources, focusing her energy on awakening the voices of our inner gods and goddesses. Through performance and ritual she channels these energies that live within pop culture and transmutes them into timeless archetypes. Through painting and performance, Krisztina creates a unique visionary world combining myth, storytelling, science, dreams and contemporary culture. She lives and works in Oakland, California with her two parrots and cat who are her constant companions. She is available for private healing art sessions as well as group classes.
Nina Rubin - Goal Setting
I provide a down-to-earth, non-judgmental, and supportive atmosphere where we will build on your strengths and develop insight to help you thrive. My practice includes talking and a mind-body connection. I treat Quarter-Life Crises, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and those pestering, repetitive patterns that keep coming back. I help people during life crises and all transitions. Many of my clients say that negative thoughts steal their peace of mind and they become overly critical of themselves. This repetitive cycle no longer works, and yet they're not sure how to change. In the coaching relationship, we're co-creating a trusting, supportive relationship so my clients no longer feel alone. I would like to help you learn to shift your mindset and start loving yourself again. We will work together to create the kind of life you want to live and discuss ways you can start to feel inspired to make lasting changes, while actively accomplishing your goals and gaining awareness about yourself. My goal is to create a supportive, encouraging, and meaningfully challenging setting for you to process and re-frame problems. You will learn how to gain self-mastery, identify needs and gather tools to restore your capacity for peace and happiness.
Meet the Vendors
Anna creates original artworks on canvas through a paint-glaze and pouring process. She also creates photo prints of artwork and sews silk, hand dyed scarves, wraps, playsilks. "Sometimes the paint starts to move in a way that I hadn't intended, and my ego jumps in...Then I am reminded, life is in the beautiful moments of letting go. So I let go...I tell my ego to quiet down and let The Universe take over." Visit her work at www.annadohnke.com
