COMMUNICATE with Your HEART A Workshop on the BEAUTY of VULNERABILITY combining two Powerful Approaches: Process Art & The Dalian Method Unity Temple on the Plaza | 707 W. 47th St. Kansas City MO 64112 Facilitated by Leela Haris of Kansas City and Madeleine Salmon Newkirk of Memphis Saturday Nov 9 | 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM Sunday Nov 10 | 10:30 AM - 3:00 PM
During this workshop we will paint using the techniques of process art by tuning in and allowing a mystery to unfold on the paper. Painting this way creates opportunities for transformation by revealing inner feelings such as discouragement, frustration, fear, or sadness. Likewise creating can also be experienced as joy, delight, and peace.
Feelings emerge during the process because they exist within us and are repressed in our energy field and subconscious. Everything we’ve pushed down, because we didn’t want to say or feel it, is held within our bodies and affects our well-being. We will work with the repressions that we discover along the way using the Dalian Method — releasing the heavier emotions and blockages to expand the lighter ones and discover how personal transformation impacts our painting. As we clear burdensome thoughts and emotions, we come closer to our hearts. In this workshop Use Process Art to: • Explore the Beauty of Your Vulnerability • Express your Unique Creativity • Practice Trusting your Intuition • Practice Letting Go of the Outcome • Connect with Messages from your Heart
Use the Dalian Method to: • Go Within for Answers to Your Questions • Accept all your Emotions and Thoughts • Learn How to Transform Negativity into Love and Compassion • Honor Your Truth • Release and Transform Repressed Anger, Sadness, Resentment, and Insecurity to Enhance Communication with the Heart.
No previous experience with painting or the Dalian Method is required. *No artistic ability beyond stick figures necessary*
