Rising Bird Spring 2010 Workshops!

Art, Healing, and Personal Growth Workshops this Spring!

Pendulums, Muscle Testing, and More!

Saturday, April 17, 2010: 3-5pm

The question of this class is, "What is your body telling you?" The answer is, "Just ask!" This fun, hands-on workshop will introduce you to the art of using the body's inner wisdom. By learning techniques of muscle testing and using pendulums, we will listen to the body's subtle energy that is constantly giving us feedback. But are we listening?

Come with an open mind, comfortable clothing, and a pendulum of some kind (it can be one you purchase or a necklace (metal) with a fairly heavy pendant).

Celebration of the Body Workshop
Saturday, June 5, 2010: 1-4pm

How often do we honestly, whole-heartedly, and authentically celebrate our bodies? I don't think we do this enough, or sadly, even much at all.

This workshop is meant to help you find ways to celebrate your physical being on a daily basis--honoring your curves (or lack of curves), soothing your scars, healing old wounds, and giving thanks to this "skin that you're in."

Using guided meditation, breathwork, journal writing, and art creation, we will uncover ways to celebrate our bodies in profound and meaningful ways. Please bring a journal and any images you're called to use for art making.

When: Saturday, June 5, 2010, 1-4pm
Where: Rising Bird Healing Arts
Cost: $60 (cash, checks, credit/debit cards accepted)

My Life in Words and Images: A Visual Journal Workshop
Saturday, June 19, 2010: 1-4pm

Since the beginning of the year, I have been diligently creating visual journal pages in a beautiful datebook. Every week, I complete two-three entries and feel that I am learning about the state of my life, addressing my current issues, and exploring my emotional currents with depth, color, and creativity.

Visual journaling allows you to write, doodle, sketch, paint, and collage in order to process your thoughts and feelings in an easy, non-threatening way. This process also allows you to tap into the verbal, visual, and kinesthetic aspects of your creativity.

A variety of beautiful journals/datebooks will be provided for your choosing, as well as many images and art materials with which to play. Feel free to bring any images you are called to work with in your art-making.

  3. Reading this blog reminds me of an author I know. Angelica Harris is a domestic abuse survivor, and much of her own life’s healing has come through writing. Check out her website, www.angelicaharris.com. You might be able work together.
