What you'll do

The best art is that which comes from the heart. And thanks to the magic of the internet, you’re going to explore a question you want answered by ‘painting your heart’. We will start with a ceremony to initiate everyone into our sacred circle. I’ll explain the concept behind the idea of a SoulSong, a HeartSong and a BodySong. Next, you’ll write down the “I wish....” question you’ve brought with you to explore and we’ll do an exercise to explore ways to move towards your wish. I’ll lead you in an exercise to tap into the colors and feeling of your HeartSong. Then you’ll have 5 minutes to capture this and fill up your canvas. Using a second exercise we’ll re- explore moving toward your wish. When we’re all done, I’ll lead you through an exercise to help you capture the essence of what has arrived on your canvas. Those of you who wish to will be given an opportunity to share what answers your art from the heart came up with. I may be in Vancouver, WA, and your fellow participants may be from all over the world, but you’ll feel as if your HeartSong is joined with others in the group.
Other things to note
You do not have to know how to paint. This is a journey of discovery and you’re not expected to produce a work of art (although you may surprise yourself). Please be on time. Once I've started I can't go back to explain what you've missed. Have all your supplies ready.

I’m a Clinical psychologist by training and an artist by delight. As a therapist, I would give my patients a piece of cloth, and art supplies and ask them to paint whatever colors and patterns were in their heart during our sessions. When their work with me was finished, I would sew their first and last paintings into a cushion cover. Twenty years later many still have treasure their covers as a record of their transformation. Now, I work in play-filled ways with companies and groups (like families) to find, and enhance their HeartSong. I call this method: ‘Art from the Heart.’ When one of the staff members from a company asked me to do this at a party for her, it was such a hit - so I’ve been offering it ever since. I also offer a 5-star experience turning trash into treasured fairy houses for very sick kids.
