Art Alchemy Paint Workshop: Healing through Color Therapy & Crystal Art with Abigail


$75 (Includes materials!)


Create your very own holistic healing painting using color therapy, crystal medicine and more! Join Abigail Kochunas of Sacred Healing Art in this two hour workshop where art meets spirituality. You’ll meditate, move, channel, paint and learn to alchemize through art.

This is a ceremony where we surrender ourselves to Spirit/the Divine/Creator and become the vessel through which art is channeled and manifested. It’s tuning into ancient wisdom. It’s a safe space. It’s your life force flowing freely and abundantly.

Whether your focus is transmuting trauma, releasing old beliefs/programming, aligning with your highest timeline or bringing in abundance – you will be guided in this sacred process to create a work of art that supports your soul’s growth and evolution.

All levels are welcome and no prior study or training in the arts is required! There’s no “right” way to do this! Canvases, brushes, paints, etc. and a selection of crystals are included in the cost of the workshop. You are also welcome to bring any of your own spiritual items you’d like to use (i.e., found feathers, sand, special stones/crystals and talismans all work great). Additionally, all workshop participants will receive 20% off the purchase of crystals the day of the workshop.

The Flow:

– Opening: grounding and intention setting

– Guided meditation

– Intuitive movement w/shamanic sound healing & music

– Discussion of techniques, setting the ceremony, ample time to choose your crystals and create your piece

– Blessing and Reiki charging the artwork

– Closing: Gratitude and thoughts

Artwork can be taken home that day, but please allow up to 72 hours drying time for the attached crystals and other elements to cure.


This class/event takes place in our covered outdoor garden that’s equipped with space heaters and blankets, please dress accordingly. Events will take place rain or shine.



With a deep reverence for Mother Earth and growing up in Buddhist, Christian and Pagan traditions, Abigail recognizes the harmony and oneness of all things. She remains an eternal student and practitioner of multiple spiritual disciplines, including Shamanism. She uses her background to inspire and inform her work.

Abigail has long been fascinated with the relationship between art and spirituality. How do they relate? How do they nourish and encourage each other? They both embody and explore the act of CREATION. We create art as we create life. We give birth to art as we give birth to life. A sacred expression of our divinity…and our sexuality. Because sexuality is essential to creation. If we are not tuned-in to this element of human nature, or if we’ve shut it off out of shame or guilt, then we have stifled the flow of our life force. We’ve hindered our true essence and ability to LIVE freely and fully. Art IS the holy trinity of spirituality, sexuality and creativity. Three elements working in harmony for creation. Abigail’s artwork consists of mixed media paintings channeled through meditation and mediumship. A selection of her pieces are available via her website and she also offers commissioned work as well so you can have a unique piece that aligns with your soul and your space.

Abigail is trained and attuned in Usui Reiki I and II, energy medicine, core wound healing and has been working with Earth medicine and crystal healing for over 20 years. She is an empathic intuitive channel with the clairsentient, claircognizant and clairvoyant abilities that further enhance her sessions and readings.

Additionally, as a trauma survivor herself, Abigail is especially sensitive to the needs of clients with trauma/abuse histories and addiction issues. With her diverse background, Abigail brings a wealth of wisdom and empathy into her work.

Artists and Healers have a responsibility to assist society in its awakening, to shine light into the darkness. As such, it is her purpose in this lifetime to awaken, heal, evolve, and uplift humanity. Abigail is the hopeful optimist who still believes in the good in this world, and that working to raise her own (and the collective’s) consciousness has the power to fuel the movement of LOVE…because LOVE is louder. She wishes you love, healing, and an ever expanding consciousness.

We often hear that the leading cause of our problems is within ourselves. But so is the solution.

It may seem far-fetched, but the power to solve all of our physical and emotional issues, whether it’s health, relationships, career, finances, self-esteem, or something else, is in our hands.

Metaphysical counseling helps us uncover the root of our suffering and address it accordingly. Let’s find out how!

Great for: Transitions, getting to the next level, breaking free of limiting beliefs or blockages, empowering one to believe in themselves, having accountability through your goals

what is metaphysics

Metaphysics is the most abstract branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of existence. In Greek, the word metaphysics means “after the things of nature”.

Metaphysics examines the very nature of reality. It offers explanations for phenomena that cannot be explained by “natural” science or that are “beyond the physical”.

This science studies the individual as a whole, as a physical and spiritual being.

Certain types of chakra healing and other holistic, spiritual healing practices, personal development, and even business coaching are based on metaphysics. They typically include working on physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of one’s being to resolve issues that person is facing.

The fundamental law of metaphysics is that every action or decision causes a reaction or an effect. Everything that happens to us (positive or negative) results from past actions or decisions in this lifetime or before the present life.

Similarly, everything we do now will have an effect on our life in the future. This law is better known as karma (action).

It is also believed that we must resolve our life’s issues in this lifetime.

What is metaphysical counseling?

Metaphysical counseling is based on the principle that everyone is sent by the Soul (higher self) to grow at all levels of their being through their life experiences and the lessons they learn in life.

Sometimes referred to as spiritual or transpersonal counseling, it represents a whole person approach – body, mind, and spirit. This type of counseling helps us better understand our life experiences by explaining aspects that our senses cannot perceive.

To put it simply, metaphysical counseling is a form of therapy that empowers us to empower ourselves.

There are many ways metaphysical counseling can take place. This will depend on the practitioner you choose, the kind of spirituality they practice, and the specific issues you may be looking to address.

Some counselors will advise you on the use of crystals for healing, while others will stress the importance of prayer.

This is why it is essential to find a counselor whose beliefs align with yours. Otherwise, your counseling might not have the desired effect.

What can metaphysical counseling help us with?

Metaphysical counseling is a type of holistic-approach therapy based on spiritual principles. This psycho-spiritual approach helps people live a more authentic life by making conscious choices.

It is a self-empowering therapy that gives us the tools to identify and address the imbalances in our belief system that cause conflict and prevent us from achieving success and happiness. These beliefs are so subconscious that we aren’t always aware of them.

With the help of a therapist, people can discover the fundamental causes of their suffering and reach a solution through self-discovery.

It is all about learning to utilize our own self-healing power to reinstate harmony.

This can apply on multiple levels – physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Good metaphysical counseling will address all of those.

What does a metaphysical counselor do?

A metaphysical counselor is capable of healing not only the human mind but the body as well. They can help with various mental issues, including depression, anxiety, and loneliness, or any physical illness, by offering guidance and support to their clients.

A metaphysical counselor can help us navigate our way to health, success, strength, or anything else we desire. They also help clients understand their spiritual nature in this lifetime and beyond.

Each counselor will have their own approach; some will focus on the metaphysical properties of the things around you and how to use those to your benefit, while others will prefer working on your own inner world.

We are all exposed to various positive and negative influences that shape our daily actions, thoughts, and reality. Negative impacts lead to issues like anxiety, negativity, and close-mindedness.

Metaphysical counseling aims to free people from these negative influences and their effects.

Gaining a better understanding of ourselves and our connection to the physical and spiritual world surrounding us with the help of a metaphysical counselor gives us the ability to recognize these harmful influences and build a defense mechanism.

The root of these problems lies deeper than the physical, mental, or emotional sphere. To find a solution, we must target the source. And that lies at the deepest and wisest level of our being – the level of the Soul. Many life situations can only be addressed through the metaphysical laws, and the soul factor is always present. Metaphysical counselors teach us numerous powerful techniques and spiritual principles we can utilize to find the greater good in any challenging situation.

They give us the tools to find a solution to our life issues without a struggle, using less energy in the process.

What to expect from your first metaphysical counseling session

During the first session, the client answers a series of questions regarding their life and the issues that are troubling them.

The counselor listens attentively to understand not only the surface issue but also the stressful beliefs and patterns that are causing the problem.

Further steps depend on the specific type of counseling and the counselor you choose. But after a counseling session, the goal is for clients to experience a greater sense of inner peace and well-being.

Not a one-size-fits-all approach

Metaphysics is a versatile form of therapy, so it can be adjusted to the client’s changing needs as the sessions develop.

Therapists use a variety of counseling skills and techniques. They usually determine which method is the most suitable, depending on the client’s condition at that moment.

For example, you may focus on meditation to prepare yourself for success but turn to more conversation-based therapy to deal with anxiety.

As you and your counselor work together, you will find what works best for you personally. This is one of the significant benefits of metaphysical approaches – they are highly flexible.

Metaphysics can be applied to almost any condition and is incredibly helpful with issues regarding:

mental health
challenges in the workplace
relationship issues
dealing with stress and anxiety
understanding emotional reactions
unlocking habitual patterns
