Certification & Mentorship Program

Are you ready to step into your role as a true Catalyst for Transformation- guiding others on their journeys of healing and self discovery?

If you've been feeling a longing, a call to deepen your Divine Appointment and create art that heals and transforms your life AND you’re called to guide others to do the same…you’ve arrived at the right place.

You hold within you a potent medicine that’s needed for this pivotal time in history. You have the power and the vision and see and feel what others may not.

This is a great gift and sometimes it can be challenging to know what to do with it or how to share it with the world.

You’re a trailblazer and it takes space and time to cultivate and translate your medicine so you can make the biggest impact you’re called to make.

And this is where the Art Medicine Practitioner Certification™ and Mentoring Program comes in…a transformative training and mentorship that supports you in honing your skills, deepening your practice, and equips you with the tools to unleash your full potential as a creative guide and healer.

Embrace the Power of Art Medicine

Let's dive into the magical realm of Art Medicine. Picture it as a harmonious fusion of creativity and intention, a potent elixir for healing and transformation.

This sacred journey begins by nurturing your own personal growth and healing, which then reverberates outward to touch your community, the planet, and beyond.

As an Art Medicine Practitioner, you have the innate ability to turn paper and canvas into portals—doorways leading to the Divine. Through your art, you engage in a profound conversation between yourself and Spirit.

And... you’ll learn to guide others to do the same.

What Are the Benefits of Art Medicine?

Art Medicine Makes You Healthy:
Your Creative Spirit is your most potent healer. When you express what is on your heart, mind and Spirit, you come into alignment with the deepest YOU. This alignment is true HEALTH.

When a creative does not take the time to express themselves and make art, it can affect all levels of health and create Dis-Ease in the body. Yes! Making art makes you healthy! And you can guide others into their healthiest selves too!
Art Medicine is your Biggest Ally during times of Great Transition:
Art serves as an unconditional and potent guide when navigating through periods of significant times of change. During a Rite of Passage, where the old is falling away and the new is yet to arrive, regularly connecting to your Creative Power through artistic expression becomes essential. Your art becomes a solid vessel during times of uncertainty, carving a path forward and grounding you in the process.

Rites of passages and Initiatory times are both vulnerable and powerful experiences. By creating intentional art, you and those you guide tap into a profound truth that is more powerful than any fears that may arise throughout the journey.
Art Medicine Connects You to Your Spirit and Intuitive Powers:
As a creative leader entering new frontiers, you become a trailblazer who’s main navigation tool is your own inner guidance. Art Making serves as a profound channel for you to connect with your Spirit and tap into your intuitive powers.

During times of uncertainty, this deep connection becomes even more essential. It empowers you to trust your own insights and evoking the transformation in others with confidence. Through the transformative process of art, you cultivate a profound relationship with yourself as a creative leader, embracing your role as a guide and pioneer in unexplored realms.
Art Medicine Meets You Where You are on Your Creative & Spiritual Journey:
Whether you're a newcomer to the realms of Art and Spirituality or a seasoned traveler on this path, the Art Medicine Practitioner Certification™ is designed to activate and support you exactly where you stand. This program recognizes and honors your unique position on your creative and spiritual journey, offering guidance and transformative experiences tailored to your specific needs and aspirations.

I created the Art Medicine Practitioner Certification™ because you, as an Art Medicine Maker, have a unique role during this transformative time. Your Sacred Work carries the frequencies needed to usher in a greater vision for humanity and the planet.

Having had an art practice for many years, I found that Art Medicine gave me a totally fresh approach. It connected me more deeply with my own creative power and intuition.

If you hear a whisper calling you, listen carefully. It may be an invitation to step in and allow your heart to sing. You don’t need great artistic prowess, as you’ll be gently guided along the Art Medicine path that meets you wherever you may be in your life.

Jump in, the water is warm and we are waiting for you!

- Margriet FitzGerald

Every human on the planet requires a dose of their own true magic... It is my own experience that Practitioners are supported, trained and guided to be in their own MAGIC while given the structure to create ART MEDICINE.

This process, this practice is for everyone. Every human being on the planet. Being an Art Medicine Practitioner is just the beginning. Everyone is truly the artist of their own birth. It is also a very joyful process, fun, with openings so small and so huge.

I've learned to really slow down, take baby steps, speed up when necessary and enjoy the experiences. The Art Medicine team provides a safe, highly creative space where supporting each other is key to all of us moving forward to create what is in our HEARTS.

Sally McGrew

I loved experiencing the process first and then understanding how to share it. Doing the paintings I learnt more about myself and can feel the support they offer in themselves, this brings value to my sharing it later on.

The course is set out in an easy to follow manner with regular check in times. Plenty of support and guidance. It’s added an extra dimension to my toolkit which is invaluable and extremely powerful.

The space is lovingly held and gentle in its approach, there is plenty of support and care you just have to reach out and take it.

Jump in, be curious, play and have fun along the way.

Katrina Evans

I am so grateful for this program and Alexis!. It has given me the confidence, skill and template to easily lead others through the process.

Before finishing the program I led two 3-day weekend retreats guiding women through the Portal Process and two, ½ day workshops. It has truly been transformational for me personally as well as professionally. It has given me another healing modality to offer in my practice as a Chiropractor.

The community of women in the cohort was an added benefit that helped ground and embody the experiences we were all moving through. The sharing and witnessing others process is such a powerful experience.

I highly recommend this program for anyone seeking to deepen their connection to self through the creative process of Art as well as learn a new process that can be utilized to help others!

Beyond Grateful!

If you feel drawn to do the course: trust your intuition!

I felt drawn to use the Art Medicine process in my work in a way I never could imagine, pioneering new ways of bringing healing in the field I work in. I am still exploring its full potential, combining it lately with other ways of bringing healing, like voice and sound and mantras.

I feel the open, encouraging attitude of Alexis was very helpful for this to happen: she stimulates you to learn from her what she can transmit and then “run” with it in your own unique way, at no moment limiting you with “shoulds or don’ts”. Very precious!

Ilja van de Griend

Art Medicine has opened me up so deeply to my own intuition and knowings- softening the heavy-handed “logic side of the brain” in a deeply life changing way. It has been an absolute pleasure to guide others through this deep process.

To anyone considering taking the AMPC Program- if you have found your connection to the process of Art Medicine has changed you for the better, and you have a strong knowing that your place in the world is working with others on this deep of a level- this is an incredible way to do just that! Alexis holds a very grounded and welcoming space, allowing for growth and connections within her circles- I have found those in her spaces are also very supportive and compassionate!

Tell me more about an Art Medicine Practitioner as a Portal Guardian:
A Portal Guardian is someone who is drawn to transformational and healing work for themselves and is called to guide others through their own threshold moments and rites of passage.

It is someone who is calm and clear during times of change or calmer than most under pressure. People seek you out for support or guidance when something is going on in their lives. You are inclined to support people during big changes or transitions in their lives.

You want to be there to support people when they are making a change in their lives.

It fulfills you and lights you up to be of service to people moving into something new in their lives.

Sometimes it’s the obvious in the physical world rites of passages like birth, marriage, death, or perhaps you are called to support people with more subtle changes and transitions like healing internal trauma, accessing their next level of vision, taking a step in a new creative or professional direction.

A Portal Guardian supports another as they walk through the doorway into their next chapter of their life. You are comfortable or excited to work within the Spirit and Physical Realms and to support others to do the same.

You are drawn to supporting others to connect to the Spirit World and their own creative power.

During Rites of Passages and Transformations the veil to the Spirit world is thin.
You hold space and guide the initiate through art and spiritual practices back to their own power.
