Stories from the field . . .
Serving hospital patients with beautiful art
The Medcalm Channel, Fine Art Experiences is a collection of programs designed for delivery into hospital patient rooms ..... Imagine finding comfort when healing is most needed. Finding beauty in each moment of art-in-motion is the path to healing, freeing up the body’s self-healing capacity and boosting the immune system. Healing comes through rhythmically moving colors, imaginative images, and cadenced sounds eliciting our sense of well-being and comfort.
Yoga and Art Co-creating Wellness
Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health worked with Colors In Motion to showcase Touchstones for the first year after the launch of their new website. These audio visual meditations were shared with Kripalu online guests in an effort to make the website a healing and transformative experience in the same ways visiting the center does. The programs were received extremely well, with many guests sharing their positive feedback about their experiences.
Taking Action in The Shift
Colors in Motion plays an important role as part of a larger shift of consciousness toward a more centered, caring and aware humanity. "Art that Transcends in our Digital World: The Story of Colors In Motion" was featured in The Shift Network's worldwide publication The Catalyst.
