JoAnn Dellaposta, Expressive Arts Facilitator, Reiki Practitioner, Certified Sound Healer, Artist, Teacher

I have spent many years researching and studying metaphysics, crystal and Reiki energy. I have been a Reiki practitioner for 16 years and have recently become certified in Crystal Sound Bath Healing. I combine energy work and intermodal expressive arts into my own personal practice. I am grounded in the belief that each person has the innate ability to heal themselves on a mental, emotional and cellular level. With this in mind, I design and facilitate workshops that integrate the expressive arts, Reiki, and Sound healing for the empowerment and well being of my participants.

I am a practitioner of the healing and meditative arts that I learned through my own arts in medicine journey. I began to facilitate these methods both online and in person as a result of my own personal journey and what it’s done for me over the last twelve years. My classes, Expressive Tangling and Expressive Introspection can be adapted to any audience, subject, or theme. I am known as HIPster the Artist in the community and my personal art focuses on body loss and botanicals. I advocate for and speak on the power of the healing arts.
