About the teacher:


Rafael J. Canizares-Yunez is an educator at heart. Although an artist by training (he received a graduate degree from the prestigious Cranbrook Academy of Art), his eclectic interests have lead him to teach in various fields and settings. He has taught visual arts from Head Start Programs to higher education classroom and has been a ballroom dance instructor. His work in theatre allowed him the opportunity to work with programs that incorporated this art form into literacy and emotional support programs. His passion for spiritual well being and for empowering others led him to accept, two years ago, the opportunity to be a guest teacher at a Unity Church in Amarillo, TX, which he does to this day. He continues to exhibit his art, holding an average of one major exhibit per year. Rafael's personal interest in nutrition and healthy living lead him to work in the supplement and wellness field. This is how he was introduced to the fascinating world of essential oils. One of his current goals is to continue to inspire and empower individuals and communities to take ownership of our well being.
