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.
Originally this session was planned to involve some walking in a lovely natural place nearby, but with very hot weather forecast, the session has been revised and adapted to the circumstances! So this is the first workshop in a series of two. It will be held indoors and will involve intuitive processes and expressive making along the same theme.The second workshop will be held further down the track when there is cool weather forecast!
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
