Lifencompass is a personal philosophy based on the interconnectedness of all things great and small through a common current, the Life Force Energy. L.F.E. has been known as the Creative Spirit, Divine, GOD, Ki, Qi, Prana, and in many variations, names and ideologies throughout the world and time but I see it as a profound yet basic energy that is in all things: Life.

Lifencompass || The Journey is an exploration of that energy, connection and the wisdom of that power, through food, friends and family, life, dreams and art. In each of these moments and their telling life is communicating, connecting us to one another.

It is through this connective energy that I find meaning, value, tenacity and creativity to live, to go forward and create. It is my hope that The Journey inspires others in their own acts of love and creation.

About Scott K Smith

Hamburg, June 2009

I was born in Champaign, Illinois. I grew up in Northern California, the Bay Area and made my first real move to “the City”, San Francisco, before heading off to explore life and live in places new and exotic. I’ve found home, however temporary in Lake Tahoe, Quetzaltenango Guatemala, New York City. I’ve called Los Angeles my home since May 1st, 2002.

I went to school for Graphic Design, with some figure and art study in and around that, graduating with a degree in Graphic Design from Silicon Valley College… Which really didn’t turn out to be my calling in life.

I consider myself a (mostly) self taught, expressive artist, mother motivated from Childhood. I have shown work in Los Angeles, Lake Tahoe, Newark (California) and in various publications: American Red Cross Blood Services in many and various publications and posters; The White Crane Journal; local Political (Democratic) events; Stonewall Young Democrats; and numerous auctions for charitable organizations such as the Children of the Night Foundation,, and the Best Friends Animal Network (through Raven’s Flight, No. Hollywood).

Most recent work includes “A Hidden Place” in the Rowan Lofts Gallery Space (September 10th, 2009). Art and images inspired by the energy and  movement of the album Vespertine, Bjork.

In late 1993 I worked with Friend and Soul-Sister, Astrid to open Astral HopeChest (Newark, CA). A gallery and MetaSpiritual Center where I created the bulk of my early ideas, mostly chalk, pen & ink.

A creative history can be found here.

One of my first web based organisms was Otherhoodlight. A sacred place for the liminal or the “Other”, healer, artist or the edge-walker. Otherhoodlight was absorbed into the “Life Encompasses” all things idea, Lifencompass.

Of late I’ve been painting, creating and re-dedicating myself to the Magickal Path of the Witch, which I began early on in life. I paint. I cook. I create. I am Witch. I’ve been one for over 25 years.

My experience

Awaken Your Light Body Course: December 2010 – Current Study.
Orin and Deben transmission series. What is a Light Body? Your light body is an energy body that exists at a higher level, closer to your soul, than your chakras. You have seven vibrational energy body centers and three light body centers, for a total of ten centers that power and make up your light body.

Tarot Study

A study of the the Tarot through the mystical experience, numerology and meditation. This is a card by card study of resonating with the image, color, and message of each individual card.  1994 – 2000

Various Studies: A bit of history.

Attraction: On every level love.

From 1980-something I studied, interacted, explored and blundered my way through an array of paths. Everything from meditation and channeling through Orin & DaBen, to some study and work with Native American Culture (South Western), mysticism, paganism, and modern shamanism. Wicca, Magick, and various other religious / spiritual questing as well. At some point I decided that the real umbrella for all of these things, what I really was practicing to become was a creative, a seeker, a Witch.

I have remained intuitive since I was small and worked personally and professionally as a psychic, healer and life-guide most of my adult life. I think I’ve helped some folks find their answers and their way.

I believe in a path of creativity and service. I am a Leo / Virgo cusp.
