Meiling Liu is a ICF certified Soul Purpose & Spiritual Life Coach and a self taught artist. She moved to the U.S. in 2010 at age 16 from a small seaside town in China called Zhanjiang. Growing up, creativity was undervalued in her family and the school/societal environment.

At age 24, she started to experiment with various art mediums from self-studying online as an outlet for self-expression, and she gradually discovered that art-making can be a precious tool to excavate our true self and a path towards healing and self-liberation.

With Meiling’s current coaching services, she now guides people to reinvent themselves through reigniting their innate creativity, remembering their soul purpose and establishing deeper connection to self so that they can feel truly aligned, alive and fulfilled inside out. She hopes her art and coaching services can help remind people how powerful they are and to never stop pursuing their dreams and creating a life they truly love!
