A Message from Fran

“The past few years of my life have been dedicated to acquiring the skills, confidence and wisdom to offer certain practices for a holistic and healthy approach to life. My journey has come with its fair share of highs and lows, but overall it has been pretty awesome. My most important lesson along the way has been this: life is so much worse when I am not being authentic with myself, when I am not tuning in to myself and to the environment around me.

I have trained in different body and mind techniques to better understand our human ways. I find healing through movement – the more gross obvious forms of body movement and then also the more subtle internal shifts and changes. These external and internal movements have become my life’s teachings. Sometimes I just want to run to increase my heart rate and sweat; sometimes I want to focus on precise movement conditioning, sometimes I feel the need to stretch for long periods of time; and sometimes I just want to sit on the beach and feel the internal rhythm of my breath.

I find purpose in discovering first hand what it means to transform and grow. And I find purpose in assisting others in their own development. My motivation for all this is that I believe we can only authentically care for others and the world around when we are caring for ourselves first… this is sustainability at its root.

I can only offer you what I know, from a place of authenticity and honesty. It’s really up to you to tune in – I can facilitate in this process and guide you along your own way. Contact me for a chat, and let’s tune in together.”

My Pledge

“I practice the Art of Creative Living: My path of truth is initiated and practiced through creativity… allowing me to be a creatively rounded full-time human being, with all “the good, the bad and the ugly”. Creativity is my true nature, and it is yours too! Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way, explains that just as blood is part of the physical body (and nothing we invented), creativity is part of the spiritual body; nothing to invent, it’s already there. My main work in practicing the Art of Creative Living is to get out of my own way so that creativity can work through me.

My life is my work of art. When I tune in to this, I tune in to my true nature, my creative energy. SOMA is my journey – Space of Moving Art. And I intend to do my work by allowing for creative flow in everything that I do, so that I can assist and facilitate others in this transformation of creative life energy and flow.”
