“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”
~ Khalil Gibran

by Oriah Mountain Dreamer, (excerpts)*
It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing…
I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it…
I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your
fingers and toes…
I want to know if you will stand
in the center of the fire
and not shrink back…

Artemisia is an amazingly caring and nuturing instructor. Its impossible to quantify, and even difficult to describe the energy that she brings to the room. She teaches with a sense of peace and serenity we sometimes lack in everyday life. She is an inspirational leader and an encouraging, supportive friend the moment you meet her. Each of the many classes I have attended with Artemisia have been an intense experience of practicing the opening of our hearts through movement and meditation.
Endless thanks for your contribution in collaboration with The Healing Circle. Your presence fully encapsulated all that we hope to give to our participants. The purpose of The Healing Circle is the expansion of a positive community empowered by the healing power of the hoop and the happiness it manifests; thank you for allowing us to recognize that divinity through yoga. Accessing and accepting the fullness of our being will aid us in greeting our highest potential in each and every moment.
Healing for me is about re-establishing a relationship with any part that is at dis-ease. Artemisia’s heart readings are one of the most affective practices I am utilizing to evoke this personal relationship. The very words spoken in our sessions are now coming to life in this new series. She has helped me literally take my heart and throw it onto a canvas. Through this work, I am seeing my heart for what it truly is, divine. This process is a personal one, but I have great hopes of it inspiring others to explore and connect with their own heart space. I am grateful to have such a powerful healer by my side.
I am so pleased with Artemisia’s class! It is up there on my very favorite things that I have ever done. It was perfect. Impeccable. The rest of my evening after went really well too. Something about me was different in a really good way in my class at the dojo. I know its just a small step on a very long path,but I am glad I took it and very grateful Artemisia was there to show the way. She is an excellent teacher. Domo arigato gozaimashita.Thank You very much for everything You do.
My heart opening session with Artemisia was like looking into a mirror, stretching forward and backward into eternity. Hearing her guide me through my own heart was a journey through multiple worlds and times, revealing to me a version of myself I’d forgotten but so desperately wanted to know. Artemisia was able to gently remind me of my true essence and to open my eyes to aspects of myself I was ignoring but that held incredible strength. She listened with grace and compassion to what I shared then, in-turn, reflected powerful insights and changes of perspective. I walked away with a feeling of expansion and a renewed sense of purpose. Her words and encouragement have extended far beyond our 90 minutes together.
This session was bountiful in meaning, love & infinite experience. I received a clear pathway to the expansion of the Universe and the wholeness of all that is. What really worked was the energy – the space that Artemisia creates and radiates around her. My body-mind + soul felt at ease and receptive to this experience. The love and healing Artemisia shares with others – in turn – is radiated + expanded far beyond our comprehension.
Artemisia teaches with an open heart and a big smile. While her practice is rooted in alignment and spirituality I love that she invites her students to play in yoga class. Artemisia’s classes challenge and inspire me to love myself deeply.
I felt as if I was being cradled in the womb in candlelite hot stone yoga. It was the best experience I’ve had in a yoga studio.
The first time I experienced yoga with Artemisia, it was outside on a beautiful warm and sunny Sunday morning. Her class was a great combination of mediation and physical release, challenging yet surprisingly calming for the soul. She is incredibly in-tune with the participants, offering careful guidance to better the yoga experience. Artemisia’s infectious smile and positive energy left me with an inner balance and peace that you can’t help but to take with you throughout your day.
I did not know what to expect when Maya Cooper asked me if I would participate in a heart chakra reading with Artemisia… She is nothing short of mind blowing! Her insight is breathtaking. She has the ability to see my true self; the embodiment my greatest potentials. She heard the call of my destiny, and provided practical suggestions to help me tune into my wisdom. She looked deeply into parts of myself that live in the realm of spirit and imagination, empowering me to embrace things I was afraid of. Fear was blocking my development as an individual. She confirmed visions and dreams I have with such great accuracy! Having that confirmation fills me with courage. Now more than ever, I feel the courage to live the light of my personal truth. Her affirmation is such a gift! To illuminate hidden aspects of my personality that desperately want to emerge; she helped me to see my pathway so clearly. She is very in touch with the invisible and tangible realms of existence.
Artemisia’s session was a profoundly warm event. Getting to be one on one with an amazing healing woman was such a good experience. Her energy immediately soothed and warmed my heart and brought me into a safe space. Through her visions, she revealed myself to me. There are certain images and messages that the heart is trying to send and Artemisia listens. Skeptics beware, she will turn you upside down. The images and dialogue shared with Artemisia has been continually helping me heal and figure out my life path since our first session. A beautiful experience, from a wise healing lady. I highly recommend this. It’s hard to describe without experiencing it for yourself.
Artemisia Shine’s gift to Yoga is like the Sun’s gift to this planet: Energizing, Revitalizing, Empowering, and Enlightening! The way she teaches class is like no other. By harmonizing all five senses, she guides you easily into an altered awareness. She creates a sacred space, where it is much easier to go deep into inner focus and joyous restoration. Meanwhile. her compete immersion into this collective atmosphere guides the classe’s focus towards challenging themselves, but with compassionate fortitude and loving determination. My favorite part of this class is when she gives us a reading to contemplate after 30 minutes of the best, most healing Savasana, thanks to the additional sound healing, aroma therapy, hot stones, and massage. Her commitment and dedication towards ensuring the class is healing mind, body, soul, and heart is truly remarkable leaving you feeling a more beautiful you. I highly recommend this class to anyone who has never experienced a transcendental yoga class before, cause this one’s sure to do it! Even experienced yogis will find a spice of rare innovation that’s touching and warm. This is one class that will always be remembered. This woman is certainly a healer and it just takes her smile to see that.
Artemisia is a patient guide, like the captain of a ship she steered me home to my heart. Then, with her intuitive eye, she reminded me of that golden ocean place that I knew as a child. It was a tremendous reconnection with the beauty of my soul that I didn’t recognize.
Artemisia Shines like a star in love with light itself! Her professionalism is unwavering yet she is friendly, warm and open. Any doubts that one has within the first few minutes of sitting down with her will quickly dissipate as she guides the client through centering into a sacred place where healing naturally flows. My awareness was brought into alignment with highest intentional self discovery as she gently led me towards the inquiry necessary to open the right doors and ask the right questions. She has the natural gift of intuitive healing from roots to sky and back again. I felt like we created a work of art worthy of hanging in an ancient museum of healing works. She reminded me that everything is within us to become what our dreams wish to make true. Any person seeking to feel loving empowerment and shine with powerful purpose should come see Artemisia. After only a few minutes of talking together, Artemisia intuitively began seeing where my areas of healing needed to happen and yet she patiently allows the client to unravel the mysteries themselves for maximum growth. The powerful result is lasting and enlightening self awareness buoyed by a loving boost of confident affirmation the client takes away to apply to their everyday life. On top of her soundly unwavering methodology employed to heal, she embodies a magically cultivated spirit of loving kind power that penetrates the soul of one who is ready for growth. Artemsia walks the walk and I don’t just recommend her healing sessions, I sing her praises as healer, guide and yogini extroardinaire because everything I have seen from her has, literally, changed my life. Everyone deserves to make contact with this amazing woman and become a little bit more amazing themselves.
I appreciate your generous gift of spirit. You indeed do shine brightly and I am privileged to have those rays fall on me. You classes are wonderful, but I suspect that I would have felt that shine if I had only seen you at the grocery store. Blessing on you and keep radiating.
