Have you ever thought that drawing painting, sculpture or even doodling while you’re on the phone is a spiritual practice? It’s the process of creating something that connects us with something outside of our self. Creating art or developing a spiritual practice both involve setting aside judgment and comparison. Still curious about how this works?
Most people don’t consider themselves an Artist with a capital A, whether it’s musical, visual, writing, dance or photography. Art therapy or art-making isn’t about creating artists or art work. It’s the process of connecting to a power or energy outside of us, a High Power. What happens between you and the paper is a creation with its own mystery.
Using supplies such as markers, paints, pencils, or collage materials and paper or canvas, you have instruments to discover your spiritual self and growth.
In art making, we tell our personal stories visibly through color, line, shape, texture and themes on paper. The picture we make then tells us a story. It’s a conversation with your unconscious self. As a spiritual counselor and a trained art therapist, my role is to help you explore and express authentic self through art making. This isn’t about analyzing, diagnosing or measuring character traits, but a spiritual practice that can be healing.
