Currently on Exhibit
When we are able to connect with ourselves, we feel the earth under our feet, hear our heart beat, and begin to know who we are--recognizing ourselves on a new level. Stillness gives us the power to feel truth, hear guidance, and sense energy within and around us. Listening to our heart--our soul--is vital for healing, self-compassion, and therefore, our capacity to see others and spread love in the world. Discover the work of two artists at Lakeview Library--Michelle Champlin and Allyson Seal--as they express elements of their own journeys connecting with their souls and the souls of others.
