Our Grieving Hearts: an art exploration

Our Grieving Hearts: an art exploration
Our Grieving Hearts invites you to share and honour your grieving process through the expressive arts. We will engage with and explore our grief through intuitive art making and creative writing.

Welcome to Our Grieving Hearts: an art exploration. I am honoured to work alongside you in exploring our grieving heart together.

The work we do together will be grounded in the practice of expressive arts therapy. We will be influenced by our imaginations and stick to the needs of what comes up in the image. We will be creating in an intuitive way.

Together we will be creating visual art (please make sure you have some basic art materials such as markers and/or pencil crayons and/or pastels and/or paint, paper, pen or pencil, scissors). We will also be doing some some creative writing. You may be asked to share what the process of exploring the different modalities is like with the group. Come with an open heart.

It is important to note that you do not have to be an artist to engage with the expressive arts. The benefit is in the process, not the product. The sessions is all about making and honouring our grief and loved ones through the arts.

Please note that the zoom link is password protected. I will send an email a few days prior to the event to provide you with the password.

IMPORTANT NOTE I am a practicum student that will be graduating in June 2020. A practicum student is someone who is enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate-level course, in a specialized field of study, that is designed to give students supervised practical application of a previously or concurrently studied field or theory. I receive weekly supervision from Peta Schur, co-founder of the Expressive Arts Therapy program at Langara College, as well as ongoing supervision from the Burnaby Hospice Society counsellor. In addition to receiving Expressive Arts Therapy training from Langara College, I have completed the End of Life Doula Certification from Douglas College and have received Hospice and Palliative Volunteer Training from Burnaby Hospice Society. Anything we create together during this Our Grieving Hearts: an art exploration workshop will be your property and thus will not be shared. Participating in this workshop does not take the place of seeking professional care or help if needed.
