Hoping to find time for myself after teaching others art I took an expressive art workshop in Santa Barbara. I was surprised how this workshop unlocked some very painful lies I had been feeding my mind, while going through a very traumatic divorce. One encounters a lot of shame, depression, and fear going through abandonment issues.
Unaware, I did not expect the workshop to be a time of deep healing, but it was. Beginning in a small group we each shared what we were processing as we went through various painting exercises to help those who have never painted before or to help those who felt intimidated with painting. It was the process and not the final outcome that was so releasing of buried emotions that each participant had stored up. Sharing in a small group, we were there to support one another, as well as to feel safe.
After taking two of these workshops in Santa Barbara, I wanted others to experience the freedom I received and am offering these healing workshop to others. Come join me and my co-leader Andrea for our first Art SOZO (healing) workshop on Sunday, April 28th 4:30-7:30pm at the Snapdragon Gallery, 778 Greenwich Dr. , Suite #3, in Thousand Oaks.
