Sarah sans shoulders and paint crop

Sarah is an author, poet, practice leader and researcher of the subtle arts, systemic transformation and conscious evolution.

“My inspiration is how evolving the edge of higher consciousness and actions in service of life demands the inclusion of subtle artistry and intelligence from multiple dimensions - of which intuition is core - in order to contribute to the systemic shifts needed at this time, including evolving the power of consciousness itself.”
