Art is a way of exploring and knowing things for which I have no words or explanation. In my own art journey and soul work, I have developed a practice of reflective art and began sharing it with my community about a year and a half ago. This process facilitates deep, personal reflection in a space that allows for vulnerability and safety created by individual reflection and art manipulation. It always excites me to see participants who are “not creative,” rediscover their innate creativeness and embrace the messy, beautiful work of creation and healing. I will be leading the messy, hands full of color and texture portions of the retreat, hoping each of us learns things we cannot say in words along the way.
“Art is a means to enter, to play with, to dance with, to wrestle with anything that intrigues, delights, disturbs, or terrifies us.” ~ Pat Allen
