Arts Unity Movement (A.U.M.)
Based up the book The Sevenfold Journey: Reclaiming Mind, Body and Spirit through the Chakras By Anodea Judith and Selene Vega We are meeting on Zoom until we are able to meet in person again. This is a systematic workbook for addressing material in each chakra through a multi-disciplined approach. For example, some of the techniques are meditation, journaling, physical exercises, rituals, political activism and especially art. We have already worked on the root chakra and have just begun chakra 2. If you would like to join do some preparatory work to get caught up. Discovering the areas that are in need of attention will enable us to more fully access our potential and vitality. We begin where we are and proceed from there. No previous experience necessary. We are meeting on line. Bring your own art supplies. Cost is sliding scale $25-$15 per session. No one turned away for lack of funds.
We are meeting on Zoom for now. RSVP for an invitation. When you experience a loss there is a natural grieving process that can take some time to complete. The cause of grief can be as obvious as losing a loved one through death, divorce or legal action, or as elusive as a lost opportunity or a move away from a familiar environment. In the Grief and Loss Group we provide a safe environment to explore the five states of grief that are commonly identified: Denial, Bartering, Anger, Depression and Acceptance. These may occur in any order and can continue to cycle as the grief is processed. This will be an opportunity to explore any unresolved grief and loss issues through the creative arts in a safe environment, facilitated by a board certified, registered art therapist. All levels of artistic experience are welcome, from no experience to self-identified artist. Group meeting on Zoom for the time being. Cost: $15.00-$25.00 sliding scale. No one turned away for lack of funds.www.artsunitymovement.com
Zoom group. RSVP for Zoom invitation Most people who journal use words. But words come from the left brain, which interprets experiences through our learned beliefs and expectations. As this breakthrough book demonstrates, there is a more effective way to journal---using images. Simple drawings, crayon art, even doodles and stick figures can help anyone---even those who believe they "can't draw"---move beyond thought into deep reaches of feeling and intuitive knowing. Barbara Ganim and Susan Fox have developed their Visual Journaling technique into an acclaimed workshop. This book, beautifully illustrated with black and white and color drawings from the journals of students in their workshops, makes this enjoyable tool for personal exploration accessible to everyone. A six-week plan of exercises and interpretive activities teaches readers a lifelong practice that can reduce stress, explore conflicts, and overcome obstacles. Its simple techniques can help everyone gain access to "soul-based" inner wisdom.
