Art for healing the self

Over the weekend I ran an art therapy workshop for the Planetary Healing Artist’s Association on the theme of “Healing the Self”. This follows on from last year’s theme of “Healing the Family”.

Using the tree as a metaphor for self we explored what nourishes us (the roots), how we are in the world(the trunk) and what we aspire or reach for (the branches/leaves).Then with our forest of trees we created one collaborative tree. We considered what fruits each of us brings to the matrix of community.

The finished art will be unveiled at the Solstice Global Healing event at Catani Gardens on 20th December.
