Community Weaver Project:
I’m committed to sharing my passion for Expressive Arts and the Intuitive Painting Process. Soulful heART Studio will start a Weaver Project connecting individuals in my community and surrounding areas who have experienced PAIN or obstacles in life. What are life obstacles? I believe life obstacles are stressful situations people experience such as… loneliness and isolation, health problems, death of loved ones, physical or mental abuse, divorce, loss of jobs, stress about the state of the world, etc.
I am not a therapist…
HOWEVER, I believe that intuitive process painting is therapeutic and can ultimately transform lives. I believe this because after living in a dysfunctional childhood environment and experiencing the devastating death of two precious children and other close family members the expressive arts/intuitive painting process 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.”
How will I personally be a WEAVER in my community?
Soulful heART Studio in Rolesville, NC will provide a SAFE SPACE for participants to realize that they are enough just as they are. This safe space is created 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.
My WHY for continuing to practice the Intuitive Painting process is:
