Healing the Artist Within

We are all artists: creating, producing, helping, being. making, building, painting, dancing, singing. We all need healing: a taming of our fears, doubts, judgements, wounds, thoughts.
The creative process is a healing process. This journey is made richer by the opportunity to be seen, heard, and understood, and have our processes be witnessed and acknowledged by a circle of collective sharing.
We want our Art to bring us Joy. We will begin each circle by reading the eight pillars of joy by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu,  sit in  silence to reflect,  and then share how the pillars are expressed in our art.
We will explore  many forms of art. We will invite participation by inviting someone to share her or his art each time. We will create a safe space by honoring individual desires.
The eight pillars of Joy: perspective, humility, humor, acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, compassion, generosity.
We are planning to meet on the first and third Fridays of the month from 10:00 to 11:30Our first circle will be the third Friday, January 19th. We will hold the circles for 6 weeks. It is a drop-in circle.
