Workshop

"Don't turn away!  Keep you gaze on the bandaged place. That is where the light enters you.”  Rumi 

Artful Grief was born from scraps of paper, torn out of magazines on an evening just a year after my daughter Kristin's death.  I heard a voice, it said, "Why don't you make a collage?" I created over a hundred collages over a ten year period. I gathered the fragments of myself and pasted them down.  I released the unspeakable.  I kept my "eyes on the bandaged place."

What is an Artful Grief workshop?
An Artful Grief workshop is an opportunity to quiet the mind and open the heart.  It is an opportunity to be with your life as it is.  It is an opportunity to come to the edge of your joy and sorrow, your fear, courage, rage, shame, pride, your nothing and your everything.  Artful Grief is an opportunity to create and get out of your own way, trusting that what emerges is perfect.  It is an opportunity to tear, cut, paste, draw, paint and embellish your creation.  It is an opportunity to allow formlessness to come into form.  It is an opportunity to pour what you keep inside, out onto the paper.  Artful Grief is an opportunity to bear witness to the mystery of life moving through you.  It is an opportunity to say yes and fall in love with each moment. 

  

It is my mission to be the teaching, not the teacher
