A Tale of Two Heartists The Heartist’s Way is a lifestyle, a movement, and an invitation for people to create, express, relate, live and make art as life’s lover and muse. The Heartist archetype was founded and pioneered by two friends and fellow journey women, Jess Johnson and Debbie Lichter, who set out on an epic adventure to embrace life courageously, share intimately, and love whole-heARTedly, while creating a new pathway for joyfully, vunerably and creatively engaging with life.

Debbie Lichter’s thoughts about Soul Art
Living is a creative art and we are all heartists, carrying with us a unique and vital elixir to add into the global melting pot. As founders of The Heartist’s Way, it is our honor and our pleasure to contribute to the great cauldron of creation and inspiration with one-of-a-kind jewelry, written word, song, poetry and video, and to create platforms and live experiences that encourage others to reclaim and deeply connect with their unique heARTistry.
