When words are too much or not enough

“Cradling Our Hearts”

Our hearts respond to loss by beckoning us into the dark healing cradle of our grief

In our grief we step away from the world knowing our hearts need nourishment, tender care, and quietness.

Give yourself the time and self-care to cradle your grief during this 8-week ArtSense grief and loss group. Through creating in the arts we will find the strength and purpose to commit to our lives again as we gently emerge into the light from the darkness of our grief.

ArtSense Individual Sessions”

“Creativity is often explained as an ability that allows people to discover a new solution to an old problem.”    -Moreno

One-on-one sessions are offered to those seeking a private therapeutic experience. Through noticing and attending to your bodily gestures and verbal language, Anita will offer an ArtSense experience such as painting, drawing, music or dance  to help you playfully step away from your “problems”. Afterwards you may write a reflection or create another artful response to deepen your experience.

Through this artful sensory process thoughts, memories, and feelings may reveal a resource that can lend itself to gaining new perspectives and new possibilities to living a creative and fulfilling life.
