Weaver Project


Community Weaver Project:

MISSION STATEMENT:

I’m committed to sharing my passion for Expressive Arts and the Intuitive Painting Process.  Soulful heART  Studio will be starting a Weaver Project soon connecting individuals in my community and surrounding areas who have experienced PAIN or difficulties in life.   What are life difficulties?  I believe these are important difficulties throughout our world… health problems, death of loved ones, physical or mental abuse, divorce, loneliness, and loss of jobs.   

I am not a therapist

HOWEVER, I believe that intuitive process painting is therapeutic and can ultimately transform lives.  I believe this because after experiencing the devastating death of two precious children and other close family members, and living in a dysfunctional childhood environment the expressive arts/intuitive process painting has been instrumental in healing my heart and continues to mend my soul.  My mission in the pay it forward WEAVER PROJECT is to sponsor FREE intuitive painting opportunities to groups or individuals in my community.

What is the WEAVER PROJECT? 

David Brooks the founder of the Weaver Project states that it is “repairing our country’s social fabric, which is badly frayed by distrust, division and exclusion.  People are quietly working across America to end loneliness and isolation and weave inclusive communities.

  • A weaver views their community as home and tries to make it loving and welcoming.
  • A weaver treats neighbors as family regardless of outward differences.
  • A weaver finds meaning and joy in connecting and caring for others.”

Weave: The Social Fabric Project

How will I personally be a WEAVER in my community? 

I’ll use Soulful heART Studio in Rolesville, NC to provide a SAFE SPACE for participants to realize that they are enough just as they are.  I will create this safe space for participants to be seen and heard for their unique, amazing, creative, imaginative selves.  I’ll facilitate how to use expressive arts and the intuitive painting process giving participants permission to begin a compassionate healing process for themselves.  Participants will learn how to tap into their inner portal of creativity and learn how to follow their energy during this incredibly personal painting experience.  They will use paint to express powerful emotions which may have been tucked away in hearts for a long time.  I will facilitate painters in learning how to turn off their inner critic during this creative healing experience.  ART experience isn’t necessary.
