Having emotions is part of the human experience. This work of moving through our emotions is deeply connected to the work of healing trauma. We swim in a culture that is full of emotional unhealth; receiving messages about our emotional experience that teach us to deny, repress, avoid, manipulate, blame, or heighten how we feel. In this group we will explore the value and function of emotions and reorient to emotions in a more expansive way. Join us as we untangle, identify and connect to our emotions in new and creative ways with touch drawing. (Check out the video to see touch drawing in action. No “art skills” needed to participate!)
