Sivitri is a visionary artist and healer helping people connect to their essence through multiple avenues of personal expression.Download Resume
Sivitri is a dancer, writer, photographer, intuitive guide, and somatic movement facilitator.
At the heart of her life and work is a love for the natural world and a curiosity about the true nature of the self.
All of her endeavors and passions stem from a desire to create beauty and to communicate the pure essence and truth of that beauty, within and without.
She is captivated by the intricate layers of nature, music, our bodies and minds, as well as the subconscious drivers of our expressive selves.
Her mission, through her art and the intuitively crafted sessions and practices she offers, is to bring awareness to our true nature in order to thoroughly express ourselves and therefore heal and thrive.
Born in Africa, Sivitri’s creative journey began as a dancer, at age 4. She studied many forms of dance extensively, including classical ballet, contemporary, jazz, and Latin American.
Whilst traveling and performing on stages all over the world, she taught herself photography. Having always had a keen sense for design and a good eye in any medium, she launched herself into digital & mixed media art, which became more of a love as she traveled and discovered the layers of the world and herself.
Not desiring to focus on one creative path, she chose to combine photography and digital design work into multimedia performance explorations, projecting photographic images over her body canvas as she danced - a fusion of nature and the human form which was the externalized version of what would later become, through somatic inquiry, the exploration of the internal world of our bodies and the nature of life itself, energetically, emotionally, and physically.
Simultaneously, the exploration of her creativity and world travel converged with discovering a more conscious spiritual path and the healing arts. She became a certified Reiki and Theta healing practitioner, massage therapist, herbologist, and clairvoyant healer. Dance became a healing practice that she combined with yoga, after studying in India, and she created her own somatic movement program to guide her students into self-awareness, creativity, and healing.
On this, mostly archival website, you can catch a glimpse of Sivitri’s avenues of work which entail intuitive guidance sessions, photography, writing, multimedia dance performance, mixed media, digital design as well as photographic and art modeling, and a window into her healing arts workshops and retreats.
Parlaying all her avenues of work together, with a focus more on her healing arts business, will be available on her new website at www.soulessence.net coming in 2023 - please stay tuned.
“I have come to learn that all our experiences are our teachers. All of it has value.
Through my art and my being, I believe it is my mission to remind people of beauty and the essence of themselves that is reflected in it.
My inspiration comes primarily from nature, especially flowers, music, light, and the multifaceted layers of the beautiful as well as the mundane, to reveal the heart of simplicity within the complex and vice versa.
Photographing nature is a meditation for me. It is a sacred and thrilling experience to be focused on the center of a flower, as the light changes and reveals the most intricate of details. The miracle and genius of nature is mind-boggling. I feel it is almost my duty to share what I see.
I believe by observing, appreciating, and learning from the artistry and grace of nature that we can transform ourselves as well as the planet. Similarly, by observing and becoming aware of our feeling bodies we come to recognize the messages, nuances, and intelligence contained within and therefore come to know ourselves, which in and of itself, is healing. The practices I have developed are designed to do just that.
