Meet Carree Tolle, Teaching Artist & Art Therapy Coach with Our Soul Oasis

ColorYourselfPurple | Therapeutic Art & Paint Therapy 

I am CARree, a Teaching Artist, Writer and Certified Art Therapy Personal Development Life Coach.

I have been using art from a very young age to recapture the better days and color my life purple, the way I thought it should look like. I used my imagination and art works to cheer myself up; to escape from the pain and hurt I experienced as a child and beyond.

I developed the need for the arts in my life.  Embracing the peace, and the moments within the arts to heal, to recreate, to separate myself from the pain. Through drawing and writing, from the Ballet to the Symphony. To make a life brighter and bolder for the world to see my true color, to Color Myself Purple.

An active artist, and writer on some level throughout my adult life as a commissioned artist as a contracted columnist, and paid writer. Staying close to my artistic and creative nurturing side, while maintaining a full time career that actually paid the bills.

While teaching art since 2016, I have come to realize my true passions, and desire to help others in the healing process through art as I have. And found a greater love for life, and even deeper love and appreciation for the arts more so than I already had. I found in the process of healing and helping others through the art of healing on a greater level as I had never experienced art before.

Recently obtaining Certification in Art Therapy Coaching and Personal Development, I am ready to Paint the WORLD Purple!!! Having experience in the Arts for nearly 20 years as an artist, writer, and digital designer, while I am now Certified as an Art Therapist Developmental Coach, continuing my education in order to achieve an UnderGrad Bachelors in General Psychology, Cognitive and Critical Thinking. I will continue to teach art, and now will be able to provide art therapy coaching sessions, and soon to be helping on a clinical level as an UnderGrad in the near future.

Wanting Change Doesn't Mean You Will Change

by Dov Baron
We’ve all heard it time and time again - your brother, coworker, spouse, or friend is going to change. People love to talk about all the habits they’ll be breaking (or creating), the goals they’ll be setting, and the changes they’ll be making.

And while they likely believe that they mean it, the reality is: they don’t.

How can I be so sure? Well, most people aren’t willing to do what it takes to actually change!

In almost 25 years of leading and coaching, what I’ve found is that most people will say they want change, or agree that they need to change, but only if….

If they don’t have to be inconvenienced.

If they don’t have to give up being comfortable.

If they can hold on to everything from their “pre-change” life that they like.

What it boils down to is this:

“People want to change...as long as they don’t have to change”.

Before you point the finger - this is true of you too.

Every goal in life that you’ve set but not achieved, every habit you intended to break but never quite …

You Are My Property! by Lucie Hanzlickova

This is a strong statement, right? But have you ever felt like you have been someone's property?
Coercive power is a form of Domestic Violence. Some men think they can treat women like property and some women treat men like property.

I don't like to compare women to physical property, but if I am going to play this game: How will the property look like when there is no caring, no respect, no love, no repairs, and no investment in it from the person who owns it?!

What is left from a woman/property then? What will the inner world of this woman look like?

How damaged is her "property" when there is nothing left to take or destroy?

Cracks, empty falling walls, broken glass, holes in the ceiling.... No protection from storms and rain falling from the sky, keeping everything damp and cold.

I usually write in a positive attitude, but I think sometimes it just doesn't hit the nail on the head.

I want you to shake you and wake you up!

If people want to treat other people as their…
