Stephanie Gunther is a musician and writer based in Brooklyn, NY. Her fascination with all things mystical and magical and their relation to natural sciences led her to the exploration of auric energy and how it changes over time. From that curiosity @twelvemonthaura was born, her personal series of aura photographs taken once a month over a year to document their changes and insight provided.

Eileen Lee is a multi-disciplinary creative based in Detroit, MI and founder of @weareauraaura. Her interest in auric fields and the metaphysical world years ago when she was told that her aura was green. This fascination progressed when she stumbled upon an original 1945 printing of Edgar Cayce's AURAS: An Essay on The Meaning of Colors, while living in Venice, California. After nearly a decade out West, Eileen returned home to Michigan in 2016, seeking to bring an awareness of energy + universal oneness to the Midwest, and beyond.


The Twelve Month Aura Project is a collaborative effort between lifelong friends, Stephanie Gunther and Eileen Lee. Both originally from the Midwest, they share a mutual captivation with the energetic universe and its metaphysical realms. Led by the photographic documentation of Detroit-based AURA AURA, the Twelve Month Aura Project hopes to explore the expansiveness of the individual and promote conscious self-awareness through monthly aura portraits taken over the course of a year.
