Whole Hearted Living: A Series of Art Therapy Workshops
Author Brene Brown has identified 10 guideposts for whole hearted living:
1. Cultivating authenticity: letting go of what people think 2. Cultivating self-compassion: letting go of perfectionism 3. Cultivating a resilient spirit: letting go of numbing and powerlessness 4. Cultivating gratitude and joy: letting go of scarcity and fear of the dark 5. Cultivating intuition and trusting faith: letting go of the need for certainty 6. Cultivating creativity: letting go of comparison 7. Cultivating play and rest: letting go of exhaustion as a status symbol and productivity as self- worth 8. Cultivating calm and stillness: letting go of anxiety as a lifestyle 9. Cultivating meaningful work: letting go of self-doubt and “supposed to” 10. Cultivating laughter, song, and dance: letting go of being cool and “always in control”
Taken together, these guideposts offer a set of prompts that allow us to actively cultivate these qualities in our lives.
In an exciting new series of art therapy workshops, we’ll explore each of Brene Brown’s 10 guideposts through art journaling, printing, collaging, painting and more. We’ll share with each other and create practices that incorporate these guideposts in easy and practical ways.
This month we’ll be exploring Guidepost #3: “Cultivating a Resilient Spirit.”
The workshops are free of charge and all materials will be provided.
