BEAUTY - Acceptance is Faith
Ria Ray is committed to serving individual and global consciousness. As we live our true selves, we contribute to the greatness and possibility of humanity.
Born in Trinidad and Tobago of Indian descent, Ria's family emigrated to the U.S. when she was six. She grew up in the Washington D.C. area. When Ria was twenty-seven working in the fashion industry in New York, tragedy struck: her entire immediate family-her father, mother, sister, brother and uncle-died in their home of carbon monoxide poisoning.
The shock, horror and mystery of this profound misfortune compelled Ria to seek her purpose. She was moved to study and practice healing and create fine art. "The void inside was infinite, and yet all I craved to do was give back. I was determined to find what was meant to fill the void not only in myself but in others who struggled with high levels of pain," she explains.
As a healer, she teaches that each individual's exploration and acceptance of his or her true self is the way into a peaceful and harmonized life. Ria's healing process helps each individual find and live what is meaningful to him or her. We each hold the ability to heal our self and to use that sacred energy to transform our life to be peaceful, balanced and inspired.
Through Ria's unyielding drive to learn and without premeditation, she began to paint on canvas. She says, "Painting was instantaneously a passage into my soul. Creativity is the way into individual divine expression and is purely a way of life. It's how we can choose to move through the world-in a state of grace."
Her work in healing and on canvas inspires and compels us to experience the depth within. Her work is a constant reminder to let go of fears and pre-conceived notions and stay the course of love-self-love and love for others. As we practice awareness and realize that all things connect, the puzzle pieces fit into place, and life flows with purpose and meaning.
Her insatiable drive to inspire led Ria to develop and design a lifestyle product line. Each product serves as a tangible reminder of her teachings.
