Recently I facilitated a workshop that used art for healing.
When we create art, we are generating energy. We are putting our intentions and energy into each mark.
During the workshop we focused on body awareness, while moving both our hands with art materials.
We closed our eyes so we could really get into the feeling of our energetic aura. To the places in our bodies that felt stiff or tense, areas that were tight or sore. We worked those spots out in our minds eye, while moving the art materials in both hands as if we were actually massaging out all of the tension.
Healing Through Art Making
Each stroke of the oil or chalk pastel was a release of stored energy that no longer served us. Each mark presented letting go of things we no longer needed. Releasing it into the paper.
After releasing we went right into creating. We first visualized what our bodies felt like after we’ve received that which we desire. How did we feel in our bodies when we have that what we wish to receive. Then we used that energy to create another image on top of the old marks.
We listened to a meditative playlist… with two major songs: I Release Control, and I Am Loving Awareness. Such great mantras for opening up to all that is yours by divine right.
The artwork came out fantastically, and really embodied each person’s energy. Such a powerful process for making changes in our lives.
Thank you everyone who attended. This was such a wonderful workshop, I look forward to doing more!
