Expressive Art Sessions and Workshops
"All it takes to become an artist is to start doing art." Dr Ellen Langer
A creative practice can help us in many ways. Art gives us space to express our own unique self, it gives us a sense of timeless space and peace.
Art can give expression to things we hold inside, that we have difficulty finding with words.
As Brene Brown says, it's not about the art work, it's about the heart work.
I offer sessions and workshops...
Let's discover your creative mojo, ignite that creative spark.
Each of us has a calling to a certain type of creativity - from creating a home and family, to photography, dance or art.
In this session we will explore your own creativity and light that spark.
Mindfulness and art journalling:
Reinvent yourself through mindful creativity. Relax with a mindfulness meditation, explore some mindfulness techniques and I will lead you through a mindful art journal process. Like a delightful day spa for the mind this is a gentle workshop with plenty of time to relax and unwind as well as create.
Self Care Art Journaling:
Taking time out for ourselves is essential, yet sadly depending on the beliefs we hold and the messages we have received from significant others,
can be seen by many as selfish. Who will take your role, who is going to carry on caring for everyone and everything,
if your inner well runs dry? Let's not let this happen, let's create a life of love and caring starting with you.
Mandala Drawing Sessions
"When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work.
I told her I worked at the college - that my job was to teach people how to draw.
She stared at me, incredulous, and said, "You mean they forget?" ~ Howard Ikemoto
Mandala comes from an Indian word and loosely translated it means 'circle. Mandalas appear in many areas in nature such as plants and flowers.
Creating a mandala is a gentle way to express your inner self. In your counselling session it is an easy way to focus your mind on a topic and talk over issues while you relax and paint and draw.
Mandala sessions are held over two hours. Suggested themes for mandala creation:
Opening your heart to love
Visioning your life's dream
I also offer a series of 12 sessions exploring The Great Round of Mandalas.
