Dreaming & making session
Hansel and Gretel wandered into the heart of a forest where a wicked witch lived, leaving a fragile trail to find their way back again. What an amazing metaphor that story is! I’m going to borrow it, but reframe it as a positive encounter with inner wisdom and knowing. Instead of leaving a fragile trail that the birds can eat and the wind can blow away, in this session, you’ll take away a beautiful visual or written recording of your exploration inwards and onward from the inner forest.
This session actually involves a walking adventure! It’s really important to tell me if you have mobility or health concerns as there is a small hill to negotiate, but the pathways are paved if you choose those. You’ll need to bring weather protection and wear shoes that you can walk in. And having said all of that, it’s just a short walk along a nearby creek. If you do have mobility concerns, I’ll adapt the activity with you.
What will we be doing?
From the Growing the Language of Soul series, these workshops are designed to hold a safe and nourishing space for participants to explore and map their inner landscapes. We do this in a small group setting, using creative processes. Techniques include intuitive processes, guided visualisations, and a mix of options to paint, draw, collage, write and make things. You don’t have to be an artist or feel that you are ‘creative’ to fully participate and enjoy. In fact, I especially welcome people who believe they are ‘not creative’ or who feel blocked in their creativity. That’s my job – to help you connect and discover!
Numbers are capped at nine so that people have space to share what comes up for them and to interact. Talking about your process can help bring it to greater clarity, but you don’t have to talk about it. The invitation will be there and your response will be honoured. I hold a choiceful and safe space where I encourage you to name your own experience and have that respected, rather than tell you what I think it all means.
I love the intimacy of your workshops allowing access to my “I AM” in a safe, nurturing space
10.00am-3.00pm Saturday 30 September Please note, this session has been postponed due to a forecast for very hot weather. A new date will be posted when the weather is cool enough to enjoy the activity. As we are now heading into summer, it may be postponed for several months.
This is a longer session than usual – 5 hours. It’s also at the end of the school holidays on a long weekend…let’s see if we can get enough people along to make it happen!
$80 (by prior bank deposit – details provided when you enrol)
All materials are provided together with light refreshments. Please bring your own lunch and a water bottle for your walk. Please also wear clothes and shoes that are comfortable for walking in, as well as lounging about and making art in.
Where’s the venue?
Bunya House, 1167 South Pine Road Arana Hills (in Brisbane’s north-west). If you don’t know the area, let me know so I can send you way-finding information. It’s a magical address that sometimes hides from iPhones and GPSs, but Google knows where it is!
