ZOOM/October: "Feel to Create" 3-Session Series
Time & Location
About the Event
We will use "Art as Process" to make an open space for you to create! You will be supported to connect to your curiousity, let go of *the rules,* & listen for the still, small voice inside, also known as your Intution. Often people won't step into this space because they worry the voice of the Critic might appear... you know, the one that says things like, " This isn't how I want it to be! I can't get it right! Why can't I do that better? That looks ugly/weird/wrong! "
My role is as a Facilitator is to:
*Make a Safe Space for your still, small voice (Intuition)
*Support & Strengthen your Connection to your Intuition
*Help you identify any Critical Voice that may arise
The Supported Process will include:
*Welcoming your Intuition
*Facilitated Art Process
*Reflection (with option to Share Your Experiences)
Additional practices of mindfulness, movement & journaling may also be integrated.
NO ART EXPERIENCE is needed as you will be focused on the process and not the product! If you can paint like a 3-year old, then this process is for you. For those of you who may identify as an artist, letting go of what you know to find more creative freedom will be available! NO art will be shared during this process.
