Our Welcome Message
Of all human experiences, the most precious is the desire to learn and grow through storytelling.
Is there 'something more' being brought into your life?
What do you long for?
We have yearnings placed deep within us for this purpose: Knowing
These longings at the core of the heart cannot be ignored, they must be explored perceptively.
When we fall asleep at night, whether or not we realize it,
We are guided by prenatal attachment symbols and meanings
We live at the heart of every developmental encounter.
Our relationships are inherent to us
We in whom there are feelings of deep loss, affinity, and hope
We love at the heart of our sacred unity.
Longing for these tender moments
And searching for self-discovery in truth
We transform through fear and darkness
Our hearts united as One people.
In the swirl of life and chaos, I invite you to breathe. Be still and meditate on this loving affirmation:
"May God's grace be fulfilled at the center of my heart in differing holy moments for all human kinds."

Differing Holy Moments® is a clinical art studio specializing in the research, development, and production of multimedia projects for health intervention, prevention, and educational purposes. Through our resources and activities in community settings, we help individuals and groups accomplish the following goals:
- Deepen personal, vocational, educational, cultural, and racial insights through transformative action activities;
- Develop new skills and abilities through educational and vocational activities;
- Honor historical approaches to restoring justice and sustaining ecological relationships in communities at large;
- Apply learning concepts to a wide variety of events, professions and activities including, but not limited to, healthcare reform; organizational development; policy initiatives; special ceremonies; corporate events; or other community efforts.
We bring consciousness to important issues through the power of healing, storytelling, and participatory action research to transcend obstacles and renew lives. Featuring interactive art exhibits, pop-up talks, speeches, and healing arts performances, these showcases present the dynamics of healthcare stigma and disability situated within the array of attachment-oriented images, narratives, and mythological motifs.
Our studio brand is designed for curious minds and global audiences. It creates a space to explore these issues and events with curated content, expert creativity, storytelling, and a depth psychology focus. We bring awareness to unconscious feelings that inform the development of the whole self while cultivating a caring presence and fullness of life that is grounded in depth psychology research, education, and clinical understanding.
Depth psychology is devoted to the perspectives of Sigmund Freud, C. G. Jung, Joseph Campbell, and James Hillman. It educates individuals, groups, and families to better understand their circumstances, vocations, and communities through the lenses of Jungian theory, projective analysis, and universal life meanings.
Each individual discerns the area of their passion or interest while engaging in particular community activities that deepen their understanding of the therapy or work being performed internally. We encourage such explorations as dialogical collaborations with the community at large to deepen insights and to help individuals grow in their chosen areas of concern.
Close attention is given to the historical, cultural, and ecological frameworks each individual brings to the healing process. Individuals learn to witness, observe, and reflect on the sensory images, feelings, and attitudes that arise through their community engagement activities and personal growth experiences. Individuals also take part in our participatory action research forums to inform our development of new methodological inquiries, clinical and corporate ideas.
By exploring this vital intersection between the arts and sciences in such multisensory works as, portraiture, narrative inquiry, heuristic inquiry, singing poetry, and archetypal numinous experiences, we teach individuals to craft their own powerful stories for collective sharing and archetypal healing.
