Read on as I give an example outline of Visual Journals, Expressing with Art.  


1.   I begin with  a short discussion about right and left brain information processing.

2.   Letting go of outcome. This exercise will help you let go of the feeling of needing to know how

      to draw.  

3.   Visualization. I lead you into a short meditation whereby we enhance a positive, relaxed state. We

       learn about different ways of imaging.

4.   Setting the intention. The concept of intention is explained and examples are given.

5.   Scanning the body. You learn how to tune into body sensations.  

6.   Accessing a negative emotion.

7.   Imaging the negative emotion.

8.   Transforming that negative emotion.

9.   Creating your own healing image.


Exploration is first general and then becomes more specific to the individual as the workshop progresses.

Materials used are very simple. Know that there is a release in every mark that is made.

The workshop is hands on and exploratory in nature, however my intention is that you leave with an understanding of the process so that you can use this wellness tool throughout your life.


It is my belief that expressing self through art, music, and movement allows for communication with the soul/higher self.
