Coming soon: Summer 2020: ‘Remembering Our Way’

Remembering Our Way: A practice for living in light

Remembering Our Way; A Practice for Living in Light is a workbook and guide that introduces Functional Energy and the Art Energy Project. It is a companion book to the collection Pieces of Water; Reflections on Living in Light, and combines writing and illustration to take a creative new look at how we see healing, our bodies, minds and human energy.

Remembering Our Way will be available for sale this summer. I will be self publishing and will send out a notice as soon as it is available.

NOTE: May 28th – first draft went to the printers yesterday!

Please see the Art Energy tab in the menu above to learn more about this project. I look forward to sharing this work with you. I find it a fun, positive, and down to earth approach to learn about the way we live in the world.

Rolling with the changes.…….

Hello everyone. Thank you for taking a moment to visit my website. As with everything else in the world right now, my massage and health practice is changing.

Hands-on work like massage and body-work have become problematic for the forseable future. Without the emotional and physical benefits of body work, it is important that we learn how to find wellness in other ways, especially with all the anxiety and fear in our environment.

I am using this time to complete a project that combines art and writing with wellness and bodywork practice. I do hope you will continue to check in as this work progresses. Please sign up for my blog if you would like to receive new posts. You can unsubscribe at any time.

To that end, I am developing an educational wellness program that I hope will provide some support and hope in healing:

Functional Energy & The Art Energy Project

Functional Energy

Functional Energy is a ‘visual language’ that I developed over the years to help understand and address energy imbalances that cause anxiety, fatigue and other physical and behavioral problems. The language of Functional Energy helps us visualize and get to know our human energy system through illustration and metaphor.

My goal in creating this system is to bring the conceptual and sometimes daunting field of ‘energy-work’ down to earth in an easy to understand language. By shifting our perspective in a creative and engaging way, Functional Energy gives us a non-clinical, practical way to restore access to all of our human vitality, personal power, and joy.

The Art Energy Project

The Art Energy Project incorporates Functional energy in a community collaborative that brings the power of our creative energy into the world of healing.

Using the language and method of Functional Energy, we can gain access to and become responsible for our own personal power and energy. In this difficult time, by bringing together alternative and traditional practitioners, artists, musicians and others we can create a community network of better human creative energetic health.


Pieces of Water is in it’s third printing!

A book of inspirational poetry and daily meditations, Pieces of Water: Reflections of Living in Light is the result of years of dream work and a daily practice of asking for guidance.

Illustrated by the author, this book is a celebration of reconnecting with our creative spark, seeing where we are, and remembering why we are here.

“…I try to remember to read one of Sarah’s poems/prayers every day. They remind me of what is truly important. Her book goes with me in the car and the suitcase, and it’s always in plain view in my house. One day a friend read the visible poem on my coffee table and said, “I must have this!” That is the kind of response all my friends have. I think of Sarah as the modern day Rumi or Hafiz.”

Joy Vaughan, artist/teacher, author of Off the Edges & Outside the Lines: A guide to making meaningful personal imagery
