Hello, I’m Heather Obscura.
I’m a Shadow Work Facilitator, Conscious Relationship Guide, and Multi-disciplinary Artist.
I lead women’s groups.
I help women reclaim their feminine power through The Heal Your Relationships Online Program.
I explore the world of the unknown through Creative Collaborations.
Much of my life has been spent behind the lens, helping others to remember the truth of who they are - that they are not broken and in need of fixing - they they are, right now, truly beautiful. My craft as a storyteller of the soul, a poet of both word and image, began at the young age of 15.
It began by turning the camera, and my self awareness, inward. During highschool, I was severely bullied and I nearly took my own life. At that moment of resignation when I had decided it was time to die, was the moment I truly became alive. I could call it my first “awakening,” I saw my future flash before my eyes and all the people I was here to support, whose lives from which I would be stealing my gifts from. I knew then that my life was not mine to take, that it belonged to something much greater than I could ever understand.
Art became my method of self healing
I built a large body of self portrait work embodying different archetypes that helped me reclaim the power I had lost in my trauma. I felt the world out there and the people in it, were dark and scary, but journeying to the magical realms of spirit - of art - was where I found solace.\
As the years passed, through hard work and devotion to my path, it became clear that I was meant to offer all I had discovered with others. I’ve devoted my life to understanding and sharing the higher truths of our existence through ancient wisdom teachings, esoteric arts, and transpersonal therapy.
Fast forward to my mid twenties,
when I decided to reclaim my body and my womb wisdom.
Women have been oppressed for thousands of years, it’s no wonder we are terrified to have boundaries, have an opinion, or stand for anything. This needs to stop. We all have to slowly, but surely, rise above the history that has kept us small. We have to find a way in our personal, daily lives, to show up without fear. It’s the little movements that create the momentum of massive change.
Today I am blessed to support others through 1 on 1 mentorship, women’s circles, retreats, workshops, and transformational portrait sessions.
While I stand as a leader in my community, it is my commitment to remain a humble and willing student of spirit and my teachers.
I’ve trained extensively as a Transpersonal Guide with author and teacher Phil Mistlberger. Under his tutelage I’ve been endorsed as a facilitator and counsellor within the realms of Conscious Relationship and Personal Empowerment.
I also carry a BFA majoring in Photography from the prestigious Emily Carr University of Art & Design.
My unique and comprehensive skill sets have allowed me to create immersive experiences for those I support, by weaving together practical tools of self expression with deeper teachings of radical self acceptance. My process allows those who are truly willing to move toward a state of freedom, peace and wholeness.
Your work with me can take on a variety of forms, as you feel called to explore and shift patterns that are holding you back in your life.
Heal Your Relationships is a space for you to explore your mind, tap back into the source of your inner wisdom and regain a sense of clarity in your life and relationships.
Creative Collaboration is for anyone interested in exploring the healing and transcendent aspects that art has to offer. This can be a space of creative play, or one of deep learning.

In clothing, heather refers to interwoven yarns of mixed colours producing flecks of an alternate colour. It is typically used to mix multiple shades of grey or grey with another colour to produce a muted shade.
from Latin, meaning "dark room" also referred to as pinhole image, is the natural optical phenomenon that occurs when an image of a scene is projected through a small hole as a reversed and inverted image. The camera obscura was originally used for the purposes of drawing and painting. It was later developed further into the photographic camera in the first half of the 19th century when camera obscura boxes were used to expose light-sensitive materials to the projected image.
By bridging the rejuvenating elements of Heather, with the optical inversion of the camera obscura, we find a new way of seeing ourselves and the world around us. We take an idea or belief and ‘flip it upside down’ to gain perspective, and thus bring life back to what has been lost within us - that which is our true nature - whole, perfect and complete.
