The Matrix of Holistic Well-Being

The matrix of holistic well-being encapsulated your authentic identity. The Art is the active, intentional creation of a matrix which is holistically healthy.

The Matrix

The parts


The idea of the matrix is based on the idea of cause and effect. The identity helix is made of energy of the parts, each influences the other in the symphony of holistic health.

The matrix is you. The art is the creation of the matrix. So you are the artwork and the artist as well. We can consciously interact in the deconstruction and construction, evolution and adaptation of our selves and in the world around us.

Inherent is that the artist’s individuality, is both subject and object, agent and entity. We are both creating and being acted upon.

Each of the elements in the matrix involve creative and cognitive relationships to and between, inner and other elements. This is a multi-dimensional existence with your unique art-matrix interacting with a set of other elements.

are not the mountains, waves and skies
a part of you
of your soul
as you are of them?
~ Byron

Creating the identity matrix that works for you

A cerebral or scientific archaeological dig is ineffective without the aesthetic re-creation. Every event, perception, or interaction requires some scientific precision, cognitive distancing and creativity.

The ‘truth’ of the artwork is derived from the sensory relationship between perceiver and the object. Art matrices vary in stability and immunity to alteration. This depends on a broader social or ideological setting. Yet, also know that no matter how stable they may appear, the possibility of their becoming destabilized is intrinsic to their structural nature.

Creating a healthy matrix within a labyrinth of intertwining matrices

Therefore, you are in a labyrinth of intertwining matrices. The cacophony of this collective can mute the individual and creative process so we start with accepting that. That creates greater equanimity to help build a solid understanding and foundation for healthy matrix construction

The body

Let’s start with the body. The term, ‘the body’ encompasses the natural, material, visible, tangible, substantial, and corporeal. Our bodies are the bridges between earth and spirit. As spiritual beings, we are having human experiences. It’s essential that the physical vessels that are our homes stay healthy and vital.

Holistic healing involves grounding our psychological and spiritual discoveries into the physical reality of our existence.

The mind

The mind helps us to organize, plan, comprehend, create, visualize, discern, and use logic. And, the unruly mind can be illogical, ignorant, prejudiced, hateful, illogical and deluded. Therefore, the mind can be used as either a tool of creation or destruction.

All of our suffering originates in the mind. Unexamined thoughts, beliefs, mindsets, defence mechanisms, and wounds that we carry can have a negative impact on holistic health. By accepting and carefully reflecting we can transform distorted thinking which support healthy living.

The heart

The heart symbolizes our connections with the spirit as it transcends the mind. It reflects intuition, courage, vulnerability, gratitude, compassion, and empathy. In essence, our hearts opens us to the world around us.

Pain, trauma, heartbreak, and toxic core beliefs can cause the heart to become closed or shut off from our true selves and others. We need to heal our hearts so we can reach spiritual, mental and physical wholeness and well-being. Wisdom and guidance is found through the heartfelt compassion, for self and others.

The soul

The framework of the art of the matrix embraces the idea that the soul is inseparably connected with consciousness, spirit and the mind.

The soul is to the spirit as the feminine yin/Shakti energy is to the masculine yang/Shiva energy. Within each us, these two forms are interconnected, although balanced in different ways. They activate energy and power depending on how harmoniously they interact.


a spiritual energy or mystical force
present in all people
although not all have chosen to see it
empowers them to affect the world and to affect change in their own life


spirituality is recognizing and celebrating
that we are all inextricably connected to one another
by a power greater than each of us
that our powerful connection to one another
is grounded in love and belonging
spirituality brings a sense of perspective
of meaning, and purpose to our lives

— Brené Brown

The spirit is the canvas of energy on which the entire expanse of creation dances. This aspect of the matrix, transcends the 4 matrix attributes of the individual to incorporate the energy around us.

From the air we breathe, to the flora and fauna, to our fellow human ‘matrices’ the universe, it is the spiritual energy is a form of consciousness holding everything together: an ultimate primal force.

And, put it all together, this forms the gestalt of you


a kind of melancholic trance
in which you completely absorbed in vivid sensory details
raindrops skittering down a window,
clouds of cream swirling in your coffee
a dawning awareness of the fragility of life
balancing the matrix into an ambedo of equanimity
