Embark on a profound journey into the art and science of color — shifting how you wear colors and use them in your environment to transform your mood, express your essence and magnify
How do you feel when someone says, “Wow, that’s really a beautiful color on you?”
If you’re like most of us, you feel seen, appreciated and honored. You feel welcomed into a conversation or a space. The compliment affects your mood, your self-confidence and even your ability to succeed.
If there’s a romantic spark between you and that person, you may feel more “lit up” and flirtatious.
So, what’s really going on? Why does color have such a profound impact on our emotions, energy and perceptions?
Color is a powerful tool for evoking transformation, especially when it’s used to create harmony between your inner essence (your soul self) and the outer world. When you use color in this way, people feel a kind of “rightness” about how you look and who you are — and so do you!
Why is that? Certain shades and tones are more aligned with your "inner colors," or true essence. And when we choose these colors, people take notice. They truly SEE us — in a deeper and more authentic way.
Selecting the colors that are most authentically YOU goes beyond merely deciding what to wear. It extends to the color of your hair and accessories you use (like belts, jewelry, ties and makeup). It even includes the colors you choose for your living room, bedroom and office.
You have the power to choose the colors you surround yourself with, which can either evoke your true essence or leave you feeling inauthentic or invisible.
The colors we select signal to our subconscious and others how we are feeling, what our intentions are — and even how healthy we are physically and emotionally.
Colors that accurately reflect your essence can make you feel more at peace and more comfortable in your own skin. You feel “at home” wherever you are and you don’t feel the need to TELL others who you are — you simply radiate your inner essence naturally.
However, when we navigate life with the wrong colors — for our hair, clothing, home or work environment — we may feel a bit “off,” because our natural expression is being suppressed. People don’t see us for who we truly are, and we may even feel depressed without knowing why.
Without special color training and the ability to align your color choices with your unique inner shades (your true colors), it’s easy to be led astray by fads and fashion trends. You’re more likely to adopt colors that are out of sync with your authentic self and that inhibit your unique way of showing up in the world.
But what if you knew precisely, and even scientifically, which colors align your appearance with your true essence?
And what if this harmonious alignment made you appear more beautiful, magnetic and radiant to others and more at home in your body and in your life?
When you know the secrets for working with color, you have the capability to relax into a more natural expression of who you truly are. You gain more energy and confidence. And you literally a living “work of art” because you’re applying the deeper principles of beauty when designing your appearance and your life.
In The True Colors Course, renowned color pioneer Arden Reece will guide you through an in-depth journey into the power of your personal color palette to express your essence in work, play and love.
She’ll take you behind the scenes with designers, artists, scientists and other top color experts to show you the powerful ways color affects your perceptions, moods and emotions. She’ll help you understand WHY certain colors affect you in certain ways and what particular color choices signal to others.You’ll discover how to match color schemes with your body’s natural tones to create a more integrated look that feels natural.
In short, you’ll discover how to exude confidence and vibrancy — not by being flashy but by choosing colors that are fully aligned with your true essence.
This training is a fascinating adventure into the artistic, psychological and even spiritual dimensions of a subject that profoundly affects our lives and is too often glossed over by superficial magazines and fashion trends.
You’ll emerge with a deeper understanding of beauty, which is all about expressing the radiance of your soul.
As you become more skilled in working with color, you’ll naturally evolve into a walking, talking “masterpiece” because you’ll be applying the same knowledge and sensitivity a trained artist does to a canvas!
You’ll experience a new vibrancy that comes from aligning your outer appearance and inner essence, greatly increasing your happiness and making it easier to create the life of your dreams — as well as attract people who honor the authentic you.
Knowing the art and science of color can help you make soul-satisfying color choices for every facet of your life, from fashion and accessories to home and office design. It will give you a new inner foundation rooted in confidence and radiant self-expression — independent of fleeting trends — that draws from the most natural expression of YOU.

Module 1) What is Color:
Exploring the World of Color (May 4)
In this exploration of color, we start with the simple question: “What is color?” We’ll look at the scientific meanings — from how we “see” and experience color from the perspective fueled by our most basic biological needs, to conscious color symbolism and associations, to our personal relationships with color.

Module 3) Identifying Your True Colors:
Creating Your Color Blueprint (May 18)
Our hair, skin and eyes contain pigments that produce uniquely coded colors. We’ll take a look at human coloring and discover some of the latest research on human skin tones by the Pantone Color Institute. You’ll identify all the colors seen in your hair, skin and eyes and notate them on your Color Blueprint.
Your Color Blueprint is unique to you and will guide your Essence Colors, your Magnetic Colors and your personal color harmonies. We’ll discuss visual perception, successive contrast and Itten’s seven color contrasts and how they relate to your personal colors, especially the concept of warm and cool. You’ll also see how human coloring fits on the color wheel and learn why the Munsell color system is the preferred method in color notation.
In this module, you will:
- Discover how your subjective color preferences and personal colors align

The 12 core colors that enhance and complement your own coloring are known as your Essence Colors and Magnetic Colors. Itten wrote that “women/men look best when they wear their subjective and complementary colors.”
Your six Essence Colors are your subjective colors; your six Magnetic Colors are your complementary colors. Essence Colors match and enhance your coloring; they open the door for conversation, evoke trust, form bonds and show the “real” you.

Module 5) Your Magnetics & Neutrals:
Elevate Your Presence & Add Space For Authenticity (June 1)
Your six Magnetic Colors are complements to your personal colors in your Color Blueprint and elevate your presence in the world. As the yang to your Essence Colors, your Magnetic Colors are powerful and create strong, positive impressions and associations. They can be balanced either through harmonizing with your Essence Colors or softening with your neutrals.
In this module, you will:

We’ll review pattern/ground, textures and shapes seen in our face (eyes, nose, skin and hair) and how we can utilize their secret messages for selecting the right elements and metals that support us in our life and work.
By the end of the week, you’ll have put together a customized Color Blueprint which identifies your personal coloring, your Essence and Magnetic Colors, neutrals, harmonies and the right patterns/textures and elements/metals for you.
You will discover how to:
- Map the characteristics of your facial features and uncover their hidden meanings
- Identify your supporting metal (silver, gold, bronze, copper, brass) and how and where to incorporate it in your life

- Determine the right elements (earth, water, fire, air, ether) that align with your Color Blueprint and personality
Module 7) Being Authentically Seen:
Using Color to Heal & Support (June 15)
Color is incredibly powerful. Our Magnetic Colors elevate our personality and our Essence Colors support our authenticity. Surrounding ourselves with our unique colors can heal our environments and create harmony. We can wear our colors, we can decorate with them and we can meditate with them.
In this last course session, we’ll discover color healing through visualization and breathing. We’ll learn that the colors in our Color Blueprints are as important as the colors in our auras, and we’ll delve into why some of our Essence Colors are part of our aura and how we can integrate all our colors for living a full and joyous life.

What Graduates of The True Colors Course
Yes. As an artist, color is so important in my life, both in what I wear and colors for my clay and paintings. It has expanded my palette for what I can wear. Previously I was sure the only colors that looked good on me were fuschia and purple. It is such a pleasure to know I can wear other colors and look great in them. Also, I used cerulean blue in a painting and it was such a different effect, so there has been a lot of freedom and newness with this course.
– Elaine, Niwot, CO
Arden Reece is the most amazing color expert! The Expressing Your True Colors course was phenomenal. Arden provided a huge wealth of information that positively altered my physical view of the world. She was incredibly generous, patience and kind in guiding us through the fascinating and complex content that she offered. I hope the Shift Network will offer this course again because I’ve been raving about it to everyone I know!
– Nora, The San Francisco Bay Area
In the Expressing Your True Colors class, Arden Reece taught me the power of color. She has changed the way I see color. She has shown me how to identify my personal colors and use them to look great. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how color can support your life in so many ways. Thank You Shift Network for offering this class.
– Kathleen, Syracuse, New York
This course really opened my eyes and soul to color. Arden is an EXCELLENT teacher and gave us so much more than just a "color analysis". This was a college level course on color and theory and application. This course and in particular, Arden presented the concept of how color is integral in all aspects of our lives, what a revelation! Thank you.
– Eileen Sakai, Salem, OR USA
This enjoyable course has substantial information, while offering results that can be used in inspiring ways in our daily lives. For me, the enjoyment of color has been the breeding ground in which I was conceived and raised (my mother is an accomplished artist) and has always been a natural self path expression, since very early on. With this considered, I can affirm that this course had added to what I already knew, and has provided in full the inspiration, fun and enjoyment that I expected when I signed up!
– Ruth Toledo Altschuler, Santa Rosa, CA
The course was fun, informative, and perspective shifting. The way Arden moved from the colors we like, to the colors in us, to color personality set the path for a journey into color from the inside out. Through the process I really came to more experientially feel what Arden said to be true: We are all works of art. The materials were fantastic, and all of Arden’s specific feedback through the FB page was awesome. Great course!
– Megan, Philadelphia, PA
The Expressing Your True Colorswith Arden Reece course was a completely different way to look at colour and how to use it in our clothing and interior choices. As an image consultant, I have had extensive training in colour, however no one has approached colour in this way. It is a must for colour consultants to add to their tool kit and give their clients a holistic experience.
– Anna Chandler, Auckland, New Zealand
I believe this program was integral to my more fully understanding color. I work as a paint color consultant and frequently have clients tell me that they have "no idea" what colors they like, or may want to use in their home. By understanding the personal coloring of my clients and knowing that we tend to like colors we look good in, I now have a new way of conducting my consultations. Regardless of what my client may or may not say, I have research backed knowledge I can use to determine what colors they may ultimately love.

More Praise for Arden Reece…
Before I met Arden, my wardrobe was cluttered with things that did not work well together. Becoming aware of my unique colors through her was a tremendous transformation for me. Now I need fewer items as they tend to mix and match easily.
I now am more confident and expressive in my daily life because I am wearing and surrounding myself with colors that support and empower me. The colors align with my energy and that makes me look and feel great. People often respond with warmth and the connections and compliments come frequently.
I feel tremendous gratitude for the impact that Arden has made in my wardrobe and life.
– Renee Lynn, Santa Fe, NM
Arden has a flawless eye for shape and color that takes in not just my body type but my personality as well. I love that she considers the entire picture of what looks BEST on me coupled with how I want to present myself in the world. I feel really safe in her hands and trust her judgment completely. I have never looked better!
– Amanda Lee, Actress
Since working with Arden, my style has truly transformed. I now have a solid foundation for creating my new sophisticated look and her color expertise is genius. Now I can tell immediately when I walk into a clothing store what will look good on me and what to steer clear of. I especially love the neutral color swatches and refer to them often when I’m shopping and getting dressed in the morning. Thank you, Arden, for providing the tools, knowledge and expert coaching for me becoming the best, most stylish “me!” I’m on my way.
– Rebecca Massoud, Business & Marketing Coach
For many years I was searching for a style. I always thought if I found my style I would have it all, whatever that means. I was always searching for the right outfit without knowing what I was looking for. I learned that I had a style that was unique to me. I didn’t need to find it — I needed to embrace what was already present; this was accomplished by Arden’s encouragement and feedback. I now shop with a purpose, I have embraced my authentic self and I receive a lot of compliments for my style.
– Michelene Verlautz, Minneapolis, MN
I honestly can not even express to you what a big impact you have had on my life. What I learned from you in just one consultation and one shopping session has seriously transformed my whole image. I love getting dressed now and have so many beautiful items to choose from. I’m so much more confident in myself and my appearance, and I feel like I get compliments all the time. Even shopping is a much more enjoyable experience because I know what types of clothes to look for and what to avoid. You are an absolute genius and a miracle worker!
– Dr. Juliet S., Associate Professor
Working with Arden’s color system has not only helped me become a MUCH better stylist by understanding the power and impact of color, it has helped so many of my clients take control of their own beauty and style, which is the greatest satisfaction I could ask for! I could not do what I do without you Arden!
– Lori Lutton, Dressed Inc
Arden’s color system opened a whole new world of color to me. One of my biggest learnings was that no one should be put into a category of colors such as a “season” and that colors are an individual reflection based on personal coloring, personality and style. My clients feel refreshed and fulfilled to be wearing colors that enhance their personal coloring and style. They take their paddles when they shop and use them as a guide so that they only wear colors that make them look and feel their best. I feel fortunate to have been trained by Arden and to have the tools that I need as a professional fashion consultant to provide excellent personalized consults to my clients.
