My name is Tracy Brusman and I am the creator of Brushing Kindness and facilitate Kindness workshops to organizations through painting. I offer Buddha painting sessions to woman support groups and people whom are experiencing homelessness, by partnering with several Bay Area Homeless Shelters.
I am a fundraising professional with more than fifteen years experience in Fund Development'
In 2002 – 2018, I worked in the non-profit arena in Fund Development - Fundraising in the San Francisco Bay Area for a homeless shelter and several social service agencies that included a broad range of fundraising projects. I have produced many events including: Celebrity event with guitarist, Carlos
Santana, renowned author, Isabel Allende, Festivals and Fundraisers. Events have ranged from the intimate to the grand.
I have a unique depth of experience within the Transformational community, working in the Personal Growth Industry with a background that includes high-profile event production.
In 2009, I was Co-Producer of the New Living Expo, in which I contributed in the planning and execution of the Ninth Annual New Living Expo Conference - San Francisco Bay Area’s premier conference and exhibition for expanded awareness of body, mind and spirit. The Expo featured lectures, workshops, special events and panel discussions, capturing the latest in mindfulness, wellness, and enlightenment.
In 1995 - 2001, I worked with the International Whole Life Conferences (national trade show featuring leading spokespeople and organizations in the fields on mindfulness, consciousness, and wellness) as Exhibit Manager. The consumer show based an average of 330 exhibitors, 125 speakers, 80 entertainers and 350 volunteers with over 10,000 attendees. Our conferences featured speakers such as Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, John Bradshaw, Gabrielle Roth, Dick Gregory, Marianne Williamson, Caroline Myss, and many others.
I am a proud mom to one awesome son! (seriously, he is!) I love hiking. The trails are my church, my home. I encounter a lot of bobcats, coyotes and so far three mountain lions! I like to film and weave them in my YouTube videos.
My Art Process
When it comes to painting, I am self-taught. My artwork is less about creating a beautiful piece of art and more about setting the intention, letting go, tapping into my subconscious mind and shadow self. It's about the journey and embracing the mystery. I find the process fascinating, healing and revealing!
