Honor Your Transitions Remembrane Containers

I honor the mind, body, heart, and spirit in each individual, knowing the need to balance

and blend all these elements…

Living in a culture of time-starvation, overwhelming career and family obligations along with economic and emotional uncertainty often prevents us from taking the time to accept and honor our life’s transitions and experience our own growing creative consciousness. The activities of this workshop are offered not only to provide the participants an environment where they experience art as a creative process but to enter into an environment where they can share their voices, thoughts and feelings about their own transitions within our ever changing world.

Session A offers a starting point to get to know each other, create a safe and sacred space, lead into a gentle grounding ritual followed by a fun writing experience. After a 30 minute break and stretch Session B leads into a creative project using the images and/or words that you experienced from the earlier session. This is an opportunity to feel free to play with new mediums. Then we will have a sharing circle of the day’s events, an informal evaluation of the workshop and a closing ritual.

Please bring an object that has meaning for you and a container (a box not larger than 12” in any direction that can be transformed; containers will be available at the workshop for you as well). All other materials and a variety of mediums will be provided, but feel free to bring your own.
