I guess by now, I should not be so amazed at how art heals and how art transforms. BUT I AM! Yes, I am in awe when I am able to witness other's lives and how they use the arts for healing. The use of art, dance, drama and creative writing access parts of our body/mind that talk can not. Our inner world becomes known in the process. Our inner stories are told and the images that reside in the quiet spaces within emerge.
I just love this process.
At our most recent expressive arts therapy seminar, a community of amazing people from all around the world joined together, each from their own culture, and corner of the world to share their life experiences and shared their art.
I am blessed to be part of this process for all who attend. The experience is amazing, and the bonds that develop are long-lasting.
Through music making and chanting we lift our spirits and heal our bodies. Through individual art experiences we uplift and heal our soul, and through community drama and mandala making we build new communities which we bring out into the world.
Thank you to all the participants of our last Expressive Arts Intensive Seminar at the San Diego University for Integrative Studies.
I welcome back those who want to journey with us again, and I welcome new comers to our next event in the Spring 2013.
I will put out a newsletter with the dates and presenters. If you would like to be put on my newsletter email list, please write me at expressive firstname.lastname@example.org.
