Raw Milk

Raw Milk is Beth Kirby's Instagram filter-free podcast for creative entrepreneurs where she gets raw, real, and sometimes ridiculous about what it really takes to build a life and business you love, live slow, travel more, make an impact, and make money while you do it.

Connecting to Your Spirit Through Creativity – with Satsuki Shibuya

 

You know that feeling when you’re creating … and everything else seems to fall away? You hit your stride, and you’re simply yourself—immersed in a moment of beauty?

Satsuki Shibuya sees creativity as a gateway to the spiritual soul, an opportunity to cut through the noise and connect with the vulnerable part of yourself that is open and fluid and fully present in the moment of creation.

Satsuki Shibuya is an artist and spiritual thinker based in Los Angeles. Her work is grounded in the idea of bridging the gap between the tangible and the unseen, and Satsuki’s watercolors explore the themes of nature, energy, and everyday life. Based on intuition and spirit, her work seeks to cultivate peace and harmony—and offer an appreciation for the world we all share. Satsuki is also the author of Moment, a book featuring poems in English and Japanese accompanied by a collection of ethereal watercolor paintings.

Today, Satsuki joins me to discuss the physical crash that led to her creative clarity. She explains the value in honoring your own pace, sharing the point system she uses to work with her energy and avoid burnout. I ask Satsuki about the tension between running a business and doing work that aligns with your principles, and she speaks to the idea of creativity as a gateway to the spiritual soul. Listen in for Satsuki’s insight on the value of audience engagement over social media numbers and learn her #1 piece of advice for aspiring artists and creative entrepreneurs.
