Sheila Petruccelli (she/love) holds sacred space as Director of Creative Embodiment for the Haden Institute by meeting with small groups, creating rituals for large groups and building altars everywhere she goes. Facilitating conversations around creativity (and the shame and obstacles that often accompany it), Sheila gently offers ways to tap the deep wellspring of authenticity she believes everyone possesses. During each in-person intensive, Sheila sets up an art studio on campus that is part enchanted cottage, part forgotten chapel and part her grandmother’s kitchen. The “Creative Space” as it’s affectionately called, has become the place people come to navigate the liminal space between what they know and what they don’t know they know. She delights in helping others find expression for that emergent edge of growth that often defies language, encouraging exploration of the silent spaces before and beyond words. “Listen to your hands” is the best advice she’s got – echoing the truth Carl Jung spoke when he said “the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain.” With gifts for reading energy and interpreting images, Sheila bows before the unseen, the unknown and the unimaginable. She offers spiritual direction, dreamwork and astrological readings to clients in private practice.
