Growth After Trauma
12-week Art Therapy Group
Art Therapy shifts trauma through the nervous system - release trauma - develop ways to feel safe, centred, and at peace. You will never return to who you were before this happened. You can choose how you emerge.
Art Therapy increases your range of expression, boundary setting skills, and awareness. Knowing your limitations, dreams, and abilities lets you move through life with greater ease.
We focus on practicing how you want to feel and that pulls you towards your goals. Liberate your abilities, voice, and stand comfortably in the eye of chaos knowing that you are being pulled towards your goals rather than fighting to make change. It is a peaceful revolution rather than a struggle and fight to change.
Surrendering, listening, and responding intelligently allows you to grow fully into the person you want to be as you are pulled towards gratitude, joy, fulfillment, and peace. It results in long term real change as you transform your life. It is hard to surrender, let go of old habits, and trust the process. It is life-affirming and powerful.
With practice and time you can artfully juggle all that life tosses your way, name what is causing discomfort with clarity, look behind the veil of emotions, tell your story as a victor, and restore your equilibrium competently and quickly.
By the way that's a picture of me in my costume during one of the periods when I had longish hair.
