Expressive Art Therapy
We are all creative people.
Trusting in our bodies is part of the process. Trusting ourselves is even more important. Every session begins by not knowing what the art will unearth.
Expressive art happens in the hearing of a song, in the lost time while painting, in the spontaneous dance party, in the layers of collage, and in the truth-telling words of journalling.
Breath & Body
Mindfulness is a practice, not a control-tactic over our environment or circumstances. It’s about noticing what’s happening in your body. It’s paying attention to your breath. It’s noticing your emotions and being curious about them. It’s about approaching our thoughts with gentleness in order to change the narrative.
Like my guru Brenesays, “The most difficult part of our stories is often what we bring to them—what we make up about who we are and how we are perceived by others… Owning our stories means acknowledging our feelings and wrestling with the hard emotions—our fear, anger, aggression, shame, and blame. This isn’t easy, but the alternative—denying our stories and disengaging from emotion—means choosing to live our entire lives in the dark. It means no accountability, no learning, no growth.”
Just breathe, take note and breathe again.
Expressive Art Therapy is giving you permission to be curious about your thoughts without judging them.
