The Approach: Somatic Intuitive Art
Having been trained as a "Soul Collage" Facilitator, plus nearly a decade of further learning and practice of "Somatic Experiencing ", Tibetan Buddhism Tantric practice of "Feeding Your Demons" with Lama Tsultrim Allione, I integrate the learnings and create my own unique expressive art process--- "Somatic Intuitive Art".
In the "Somatic Intuitive Art" workshops, you will be guided to make your Anchor Image, detect body sensations, and create images intuitively based on body sensations. We will also learn to embody the images through the art making process, allowing body sensations to be fully felt. We also learn how to have active dialogues with the images, combining words and imagination to deepen the connection.
Besides the "somatic" element of this unique art process, the intuitive art creation process is to create authentically without sensor. Allow images to form and unfold from the internal landscape....it is not aiming at producing a beautiful end product: it is a process of reveal and explore internal world......This is also a process of working through "resistance", or "inner critic", a process that allows and stays with whatever emotions that arise, and create from there. This is also a process that explores taboo. No previous art training or skills are needed.
