I am a facilitator of the creative process. I create spaces for individuals from all walks of life to tell their story using non-verbal tools. Color, texture, shape, movement and energy all come together to tell your story of past, present or future. My aim is to place each individual at the center of their experience. My practice is trauma-informed; each individual’s safety and comfort is my priority. I weave in breath work, visualization and movement/expression to allow participants to become in tune with their inner knowing/intuition and express without judgement or expectations.
Creative Expression through color, texture, shape and abstraction is a universal language that is available to all. There are many ways to explore your creativity and visual arts is one of them. Artistic expression is not reserved for those with special talents or abilities. Using creativity as a tool to communicate and tell a story can be a powerful and healing experience.
Some benefits of conscious creativity include helping to identifying and label feelings, increased relaxation and stress relief, and opportunities for problem solving and innovative thinking. For many participants, the creative process allows them to practice letting go of the need to be perfect and creates an opportunity to access subconscious thoughts and ideas. It can be a meditative process and the tactile nature of the practice encourages awareness of the body and sensations. Coupled with movement, creative expression can allow for a release of stuck energy and assist with gently pushing through barriers in different layers of the self.
