Expressive Arts Journaling
Body Centered/Art Based Visual Journaling for Personal Transformation
Have you longed to experience Pamela’s transformational journaling process, but live too far away from the studio to attend?
Now you can!
This 6 week group is a taste of the 6 month “Image Quest SojournTM” est. 2004. Pamela has designed this introductory course, LIVING WITH IMAGES AS COMPANIONS especially for you. After this 6 week group you will know if a 6 month commitment is a good fit for you.
You will be making art in your own home/office/studio while sharing with Pamela and your online community weekly. Once a week there will be a three hour, real time “sacred circle” group video session.
This process journal will be your “psyche’s personal playground”. We will practice letting go of perfection, finding ease in the necessary chaos of the creative process.
You will randomly gather images that elicit body sensations, both nurturing and disturbing, letting them inform one another, allowing color, image, texture and words to steep in the rich soup of the pages.
During the six weeks a new relationship with your sensing body will be honed. With daily journal tending you will witness this random, sometimes chaotic process, begin to self organize, revealing new insight, delight and awe in your life.
Enrollment is limited to ensure everyone’s voice is heard and create a safe container to practice vulnerability, share our journals, and benefit from the exciting cross pollination of ideas.
