Naomi Lewis is the Educational Director of The Sacred Trust. She originally trained as a photographer at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and The University of Brighton and then moved off the forest trails of her photographs onto the shaman’s map. Here she found a language that articulated her perception of the sacred as she had experienced it since her earliest years. She is known for her love of the dark depths and her understanding of these locations as holy places to be mined and explored for their hidden and oft misunderstood veins of gold. Her engagement with this hidden architecture has the capacity to bring a room into total focus and allow students to access ever more of the invisible realms that they come to explore. In her dance of the artist-empath she creates compassionate bridges for everyone present to traverse, weaving the unguarded self with heart as a clear pathway to profound communion with the spirits.
