Art Therapy Workshop

I attended the most incredible workshop last week in Syracuse on Art Therapy. The subject was about using art therapy for grief and loss issues. The woman, Pamela Hayes, was an excellent teacher and gave us many hands on experiences and ideas for our work. I was introduced in a meaningful way to mandalas which I had heard about but had not really done anything with. We made several. But the part I like the most was the SoulCollage. We all brought a photo of a loved person or pet that had died and we used this technique to help process the loss. It was truly magical. I had brought a picture of our dog we had for over 15 years. The pictures above illustrate the soul collage and a mandala. Very enlightening experience. You can see a preview of Pamela Hayes new video on her website.
