These specific workshops are like a relaxing and therapeutic spa appointment for your heart, mind, and soul.
Participants can express themselves creatively, document their experience, and create a healing environment for themselves. It also can greatly help individuals deal more effectively with emotional and spiritual areas of difficulties in their lives.
By using Art4Healing® methods, participants experience greater self-awareness, confidence to process feelings and emotions, and new way to optionally articulate and share these profound feelings and emotions with others. The structured approach of art exercises are designed to bring a creative response that encourages the release of many emotional blocks.
