Hello lovely readers!
Happy Friday! I have been knee deep in production for my new workshop and I’m still reeling from my extraordinary experience a last weekend!
Many of you know, that I recently hosted my Art & Healing Retreat – ArtWorthy with my dear friend Trina Lee.
We poured our love into designing this retreat to ensure a special, luxurious and heartfelt experience and it was well worth it! In fact, this retreat completely blew me away! I will be forever moved by the love I felt from each beautiful soul in attendance!
From the location to the food, to the art making, to the remarkable healing – every minute was filled with magic and LOVE!
It was so incredibly rewarding to see the relationship between EFT and Art and how, by accessing our inner critic and inner guide (thru EFT, meditation and visualization) we could then move straight to productive and cathartic expression through Art!
Trina leads an EFT session.
Trina and I had personally witnessed this connection but to then see it realized by a group was simply astounding!
We also began to observe how universal our inner critic is and how its message is rather unoriginal. Each woman was being held back by that critical voice but by actualizing it on paper it lost much of its power! This observation and practice brought all the women closer and truly created a safe and sacred space for healing and creation.
With the inner critic put in its place we could move on to celebrating and creating with the authentic self or inner guide! What joy flooded the room as we were able to embrace this all-knowing and all-loving aspect of ourselves. Soulful, beautiful artwork emerged and tears of joy and relief flowed.
We hit the Art Room for some powerful creative sessions!
I will be changed forever by each of the women that joined us for this groundbreaking weekend.
I wish to send out my deepest gratitude to them all for coming on this journey with us. I also want to thank my amazing friend Trina for all that she did to help my dream become a reality! I can’t wait for the next one!!
