Processing through art making

What started out as supporting a dear friend share her art with our community has grown into seasonal workshops processing our mental, emotional, spiritual & physical selves as a group. Something transformative always happens when people come together and create something symbolic and representative of their present season or goals - processing the seasonal invitations to attend to their whole selves. Science is now catching up the ancient wisdom that holistic learning - the integration of new ideas & growth happens on neurological & physiological levels when explored through a creative art making process. Join us at our next event!

Spring | Storytelling your emotions through Abstract Form

With Dutch

This Workshop invited brave women sit in silence connecting to themselves in order to put form to who they are. With that abstract visual form they crafted fabric shapes into a unique art piece.

They courageously shared their work and their stories in a circle receiving feedback and encouragement. A true healing experience.

Summer | Processing your heart health with Sun-prints

With Dutch

During this Workshop we talked about the connection of attending to our heart health in Summer. We connected to our bodies through breath work. Lead through a visualization they connected to a visual shape or narrative.

With that form in mind they placed the shapes onto Cyanotype fabric. Collaborating with the sun they let the Summer light expose what needed to be exposed. With this new visual they processed with a partner and identified what they saw, what they wanted to release, what they were committing too and what they may need to ask for support in.

With courage each woman left with her print framed, a new revelation and an action step to engage with this Summer.
