Yoga is not about touching your toes, it’s about what you learn on the way down  – Judith Hanson Lasater


Keeper of the Treasure, in short, is the definition of what the mythological Griffin does as a guardian.  Using the strength of the lion and wisdom of the eagle.

Keeper of the Treasure is a site that shares and encourages  using art/self-expression, yoga/movement  and quiet/meditation to learn how to practice pausing.

I’m  LLGriffin aka Lis(pronounced Lease)Lepore Griffin, I’m the  Keeper of  Catspaw Studio –  I use practical tools  in order to pause.  Offering art and yoga classes or workshops as well as speaking or demonstrations.  I also have a zafu meditation cushion boutique   so you can find physical support and an art journal Inside the Belly of the Whale.  The aim is to process life’s challenging emotions and to use self-expression, so emotions don’t remain stuck in our bodies.  The key to keeping the balance of heartbreak and beauty is to practice pausing. 

On this site I will share weekly from,  my art journal – looking for heart. There’s a tab called  Ideas + that I share from time to time how others have created Art that has been inspired by loss such as, music, film, books, websites or articles. Learning and acknowledging those difficult emotions, and learning how to create from pain can help the pain evolve.

This site also introduces my work Inside the Belly of the Whale,is based on night dreams  had after the death of my mother.  A photo-journal and visual narrative of spiritual transformation after great loss.
