Respond

Observe

Find a quiet private place to view your images. Doing this on a desktop computer rather than a phone or iPad is best. 
Slowly moving into a comfortable position begin noticing your body and your presence. In silence begin to view your portraits. 

As you look through the collection notice 

  1. What is my internal dialogue 

  2. What thoughts are coming up

  3. What phrases are being repeated 

  4. What questions are the images leaving me with

  5. What memories are flashing 

Take a few minutes to journal or jot down your candid responses. No need to judge or filter. Observe the images and your responses, documenting your initial observations. 

Interact 

In another sitting; perhaps a few days later:

Find a quiet private place to view your images. Doing this on a desktop computer rather than a phone or iPad is best. 

Slowly moving into a comfortable position begin noticing your body and your presence. In silence begin to view your portraits. 

Write down the words, phrases, lyrics that were a part of the Portrait Session that are coming to mind today. Select one or all to be a part of this interactive time. You can always do one now and the others in another sitting. 

Repeating your phrase or word under your breath, begin looking for an image that connects with the essence of that phrase or word. 

Once you select that image set a timer for 2 minutes. Focusing on the image and your phrase. Let the silence speak to you.

Journal or got down your reflections 



Conversate

In another sitting; perhaps a few days later:

Slowly moving into a comfortable position begin noticing your body and your presence. In silence begin to view your portraits. 

As you scroll or hold your images select the one that seems to have the most energy connected with it: weather it’s positive or negative, selecting the one that seems to have something to say today. 

As you select the image begin to interact with as if you are in conversation with it. Introduce your self and then ask the image: 

  1. Who are you? 

You can continue asking who are you to continue to get different responses. 

Journal or jot down what you are hearing. 

Thank the image for sharing and share any words that are coming up. Again, playing out a conversation. 

Create a closing remark and say goodbye.
