Appelusa is the Curator of the Mind/Body component page.
Appelusa is a poly-synesthete and internationally-exhibited multimedia artist. She is best known for her work as an artistic roller skater and choreographer in the entertainment industry. As an artist, Appelusa explores combining physical forms with shapes, light, color and movement in order to exemplify how her synesthesia manifests. Appelusa is also a certified bioenergetic practitioner and founder of Light Body Energetics, a healing arts initiative. In 2017, Appelusa was the artistic director and producer of Synaesthesia Dance Experience: 4D multisensory show (SDE), as part of a large scale exhibition in Los Angeles entitled Synaesthesia: What is the taste of the color blue? SDE was the first of its kind to showcase synesthete dancers, visual artists, choreographers, and multimedia art as an immersive multisensory show for the audience. Appelusa is a founding member of The International Association of Synaesthetes, Artists and Scientists, and serves as the organization’s Dance Curator. She also hosts Synesthete Artists and Synesthetes Los Angeles Facebook Groups. Appelusa is also on the board of Journey Through the Senses and is beyond excited to serve as the organization’s Mind/Body Curator.
The mind and body are inextricably linked. Science reveals a vast range of connections between the mind and the body, which leads us to explore how we can take health and wellness into our own hands. Humans experience at least five senses continually throughout the day, which shapes our unique and individual perceptions of life. Two cutting-edge researchers, Dr. Joe Dispenza and Dr. Bruce Lipton are internationally recognized for their scientific achievements in neuroscience and epigenetics, and are well known motivational speakers on the mind body connection.
The Journey Through the Senses Mind/Body component will explore how ancient practices such as yoga, meditation, qi gong and tai chi can help us experience more than just five senses, and how alternative modalities such as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), mindfulness, and color therapy can benefit the neurodiverse community by helping us to experience our senses more fully in order to achieve resiliency.
Anticipated collaborations for innovative events and presentations may include: The Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI), an international collaborative accelerator of scientists, health practitioners, innovators, educators, and artists, who forward the transdisciplinary science and real-world application of consciousness and healing practices.
