can help you to heal at a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. The essential process of healing yourself with artmaking is one involving
creating change so that you can become more conscious and restore your
connection to your intuition and your soul.
When you are physically ill, in pain, dealing with emotional
issues, or challenged by a life changing event, you can start to
heal yourself with art by opening up to your inner voices, listening to
them, and allowing their messages to emerge.
the one year long online class, you will
make four or more medicine dolls: a guardian, a scapegoat, a talisman and an inner
healer. In a weekend retreat setting you will make 2 dolls: a
scapegoat and talisman. Class involves keeping a journal as well as
making the dolls. This work will take you through a creative process
toward a goal of healing an aspect of yourself and/or your life. Your intention
drives the process and keeps you focused. Your
journal becomes the record
keeper and provides a place for you to dialog
with your creations.
Medicine Dolls is a six-step creative process:
an intention to keep you focused and guide the process.
an image of protection.
an image of the pain/stress/wound/ problem that is blocking you from getting what you want.
the image through making the art.
the painful image into a new image that represents the healing goal - a
less stressful, more positive way to respond to whatever is causes you pain.
Make an image of your Inner Healer - what you have learned.
