No experience necessary in Focusing or the artsMarch 05, 2021 9:00 pm
Focusing-oriented expressive arts (FOAT®) helps us to find an inner place of stability—and to access our body’s knowing and creative wisdom. In this workshop, we will begin with a centering exercise to ground ourselves and connect with the larger community. Next we will do a Focusing exercise to access a “source of strength”—letting a felt sense emerge from it. Through a user-friendly approach, we will find a way to express our felt sense into a creative expression—which might come as a color, shape, image, word, phrase, gesture or sound. We will also identify a small step to carry this inner strength into our daily life.
As we bring into awareness a source of strength and externalize it through creative expression, our resilience becomes enhanced. Sharing in community supports and nourishes carrying this strength forward in our lives.
Please have any size or kind of paper; simple drawing materials—anything will do.
