An Introduction to Earth House Gallery
Holistic Healing, Spiritual Counselling, and Art Therapy have gained tremendous popularity over the past several decades. In our busy and often stressful lives, we have an inherent need for rebalancing our minds and bodies to attune with the natural rhythm and cycles of nature. Sometimes these neglected needs present themselves as anxiety, illness, depression, a deep sense of longing for a different life. My passion is helping people to listen to and interpret these messages, guiding them towards a healthier and happier expression of themselves. We all face adversity in our lives, and knowing how to best respond to and answer the call of profound change is integral in how you will choose to move forward from where you now stand.
My name is Anne Marie Hogan, and Earth House Gallery is my way of bringing together and celebrating my interests in holistic healing therapies. I am an art educator, counsellor, and certified Reiki practitioner based in Toronto Ontario. I am a believer that art heals, energy is what we are made of, and health is an abundant source if we open ourselves to true healing and self development. I experienced first hand the positive difference that alternative therapies made on my own healing journey, and it is my vocation to empower others by helping them to realize their own inherent ability to heal themselves and live more joyous lives. I believe that true healing begins with a thought; a calling back to oneself; that whatever type of suffering we come to know in this life is merely a chance to pause, listen and respond in a way that promotes a better understanding of ourselves. Each type of service I offer begins by exploring the mind and body connection in order to help clients focus on becoming more aware of how their thoughts and beliefs have shaped their current situation, and how these can be shifted through movement, guided visualizations, healthy eating, and positive self-care practices. I am always continuing to expand my knowledge through courses and special training in alternative therapies to deepen my understanding of the body-mind connection.
Anne currently works as a professional school counsellor and teacher in Toronto. Her professional background is in the fine arts and education, specifically in urban education and visual art. She practices yoga and meditation regularly, and is always creating delicious culinary experiences for healing and feeling great! She loves the joy of creating in every aspect of life.
"It is extremely liberating to see that I was the cause of my problems. With this realization I have also learned that I am my own solution. This is the great gift of personal accountability. When we stop blaming external forces and own up to our responsibility we become the ultimate creators of our destiny" -Jenna Galbut
