Quality is the first norm for art, but its final norm is love and truth, the enriching of human life, the deepening of our vision.

Alana Levandoski is a songwriter and recording artist. In 2010, after ten years of touring internationally, signing to prominent record labels and professional songwriting, with considerable promise of “making it”, she decided to take a sabbatical, not knowing if she would ever return.  Six years later, she now has a family and lives in Alberta in a little cabin that she and her husband built together by a lake. After attending and graduating from the Living School for Action and Contemplation, Alana has recently experienced a rebirth as an artist, finally opening to a way of integrating her spirituality, her craftsmanship and her lifestyle.  Abiding by a monastic rule inspired by her time living with the Benedictines, Alana and her husband Ian have committed to a life of minimalism and sacred simplicity. Describing her recent album, Behold, I Make all Things New as a “Christ Narrative”, Levandoski has returned with an integrated work that will appeal to music fans, appreciators of Jesus, and Christians alike. Alana has released a new album on September 17th, 2016.  The album is a series of chants and compositions with spoken word in collaboration with contemplative teacher and clinical psychologist James Finley (author of Merton’s Palace of Nowhere). It is called Sanctuary ~ Exploring the Healing Path with Alana Levandoski and James Finley
Julie Ann Stevens is committed to a life of spiritual practice, learning and communion with others. Her artwork reflects the path born out of this commitment. She is the owner of Coeur de Rose Gallery, Studio & Country Art Retreat located in Watson, Minnesota. Coeur de Rose is a place to create, reflect, pray, connect.
