PAINTING FOR MEDICINE:
THE SACRED WITNESS
Giving yourself Permission, Power and Paint
for Creating Beauty in your Life
Change happens. Some changes are great, some, not so good. As we grow from infancy to adulthood, we become more and more empowered to create change in our lives and in our world; Unfortunately for most of us, that feeling of power to change is REALLY temporary. With overwhelming forces like patriarchy, colonization, and climate-change shaping our futures, it becomes ever more important to awaken the Sacred Witness within: to see what needs changing, to communicate it, and to help create it. "Art changes people, People change the world."-- but how does one go about changing oneself, to change the world?
Permission to Change
Got blocks? There are as many reasons not to change as there are people in the world, and as a painting teacher, I have heard everything! Perhaps its a person or people holding you back; perhaps its your environment, poverty or current place in the world. Perhaps you believe it might be your own mind, but are unsure what it is in there that needs a shift...Without saying your problems are small- only YOU really know - I CAN promise that if your blocks are external they can be shifted (at least over time and with the right supports) and if they are internal they can ONLY be shifted BY YOU, as fast as you allow. It's ALWAYS up to you.
"Medicine Lines" & Good Lasting Change
Good life changes are sustained when we create meaningful connections to spirit, family, community and our natural world. There are a lot of ways to create meaningful connections, or 'Medicine Lines' and to honour them; Together we will explore how those connections are showing up in our lives; On Canvas we will strengthen what is weak, celebrate what is strong, and witness the creation of something new.
Witness Your Healing Life-Story Unfold
Are you someone who creates change in your life with ease, or someone who wants a new way to create change within yourself? Painting is potent medicine for creating and expressing change in our personal lives when we do it on purpose.
