Classes: Grief Relief with Intuitive Art
Intuitive art expression, along with a point on presentation addressing the unhelpful ways we've been taught about what to do about our sad and painful emotions, gives participants the opportunity to tap into their own personal power of expression to move forward on their grief healing journeys.
Since my son, Craig, died in 1995, I have learned a great deal about grief. There is so much misinformation out there about how to grieve that I felt inspired to do everything in my power to research and explore multitudes of information and in order to come up with practical, real life solutions from which to express my grief in the healthiest way possible. Now, It brings me great joy to be able to share all of this helpful information with others who are in pain. If I can help in anyway, that is what makes me happy.
One of the most surprising gifts on my grief journey has been the gift of intuitive art. Now, I am certainly not a trained artist, nor wouId I ever claim to be a good artist. But, nevertheless, I was inspired to try painting and drawing. Much to my amazement, the first time I touched my brush to the paint and let it go onto the paper, "something" started moving the brush. Something from deep inside of me, but not directed by my analytical mind. The more paintings I did, the more I realized that my intuition, my guiding life force, was painting out my feelings. Reflecting on these paintings, I could see expressions that were very important to my healing. It was and is a very magical process! We all need a way to express those deep emotions, those feelings that we tend to ignore. When we paint with abandon and without inhibitions, we can fully express ourselves while the brush moves freely to help us do so. It's a beautiful thing!
My compassionate heart has called me to hold classes and help people with their painful experiences. In these settings I passionately share my story while addressing some of the very unhelpful information we've been taught what to do about our sad and painful emotions that can hinder us in our healing processes.
