Soulscaping is an imaginal and creative process Louis has refined over two decades to not only create art work but to define and master his own life experience, he has managed to work with leadership teams and groups to help them define theirs too. What this allows people to do is to see the world through the eyes of an artist; to create your life experience as an artist would approach a blank canvas. A daily, weekly practice to help define those life experiences that you really want to unfold in your life.
The first step is to look at a piece of work that lights something up in you. The second step is to actually imagine you are in the painting, the figure in the painting below is you, let go of all the distractions of life for a moment and consider what it means to be walking across this reflective surface, what it means to have the veils of your mind apart, and to have a moment of clarity. Replay the moments you have when you look at your favourite art work and just allow your attention to settle on a part of the painting that really captures your imagination, it might be a single point of light, it might be the figure... If you have any worry in your life, any fear notice that too, using your imagination see if you can push that worry and fear into one of the darker areas of the work, se if you can delicately push it to one side of the other. Realising that worrying is a form of creativity, worrying is having a image in your mind and putting energy int it, which is precisely what hope it, only hope is an image you want to see, what could you do with this energy if you flipped it, what experience could that be? could you be strong, resilient, what word would you use to describe that turning of worry into creativity. How does this play out in front of you now, it isn't so dark after all and the light quickly emerges from the darkness. Notice what happens after every step that you take that you emit light!
The image below is one of Louis most recent pieces of work, the intention behind it, is that you have a realisation, what it means to have this fresh start.
