Alena first travelled to Jordan in 2006, to help found a boarding school commissioned by His Majesty King Abdullah II. Since that time she has worked at the intersection of Jordan's education and travel sectors - primarily in program design and management and leading transformational journeys throughout the region. An Arabic speaker, Alena received her BA in Geology & Geophysics and International Studies from Yale University, her MA in International Studies from Uppsala University, Sweden and has studied yoga in the Kripalu lineage. A frequent speaker in private and public settings in the United States, Alena believes that the lessons learned in the vast expanses of southern Jordan can alter and enrich one’s view of self and world. She is a practicing Muslim. E: firstname.lastname@example.org; W:http://21stcenturypilgrims.blogspot.com; P: 413.341.6556.

Please join Rebecca for lively chats with artists and crafters about their lives and lifestyles. Every artist has a story...we tell them here. Today I chat with the fascinating artist Alena Hennessy who has long been fascinated with nature and the outdoors. After art school, Alena did an independent study in Florence, Italy, where she began to get down to what she loved in art and in life: simplicity, stillness and a sense of little things relating to one another, all peaceful and quiet. Since that time, Alena focuses on what she loves best, making art and thoughtfully designed products available to people everywhere, everyday. She has created custom art and designs for Target, Urban Outfitters, ABC Studios, Galison/Mudpuppy, Papyrus, Monique Lllulier, Lark & Loon, and the City of Chapel Hill, among others.
Alena's work has been published in Dwell, Readymade, Redbook, Natural Health, The Washington Post, ME Home Companion, Victoria and numerous design blogs. Her paintings and wares can be found in numerous boutiques and galleries across the States and abroad. She has exhibited her paintings in such places as New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Portland, Chicago, Berkeley, Raleigh, Asheville, ChapelHill, Atlanta and Rochester, NH. Alena is a practitioner in plant spirit medicine, yoga and energy healing. She teaches workshops in museums and artcenters on the creative process, yoga, movement and manifestation. She currently resides in Asheville, NC. Visit her online at http://www.alenahennessy.com.
