What can I expect in the Go Deeper with Willa Workshops sessions?
You can expect a Professional, Guided, Non-traditional Art Therapy experience.
Our experienced Art Therapist, Kimberly, will lead us through a series of guided somatic activities designed to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and activate the body's natural healing processes.
Engage in a variety of creative activities of your choosing, such as collage fodder creation, watercolor for relaxation, acrylic or oil painting, slow stitching, drawing, Zentangling, mark making or crafting of any genre. Art is a powerful tool for self-expression and can be a catalyst for healing.
We will bring our chosen art and materials to each session.
Come ready to work on a lesson or two from a course that you are taking by watching one of more of the lessons in advance of our weekly session and have the materials ready that you want to play with.
This is about self-expression, not perfection.
You can also expect the following:
Breathwork and Meditation
Learn calming breathing techniques and participate in a soothing meditation session to help activate your body's relaxation response. These practices can help regulate your autonomic nervous system and enhance your overall well-being.
Creative Warm Ups
Loosen up before working on your own project with a quick exercise explained by Kimberly in our session.
Connect with like-minded individuals who are on a journey of healing and self-discovery. Share your thoughts, experiences, and artwork in a supportive and non-judgmental environment. The power of our community is a crucial component of this gathering.
There will be a private Facebook Group for each session of Go Deeper.
Our facilitator Kimberly is trained in art therapy, mindfulness, and autonomic nervous system regulation. She will provide expert guidance and support throughout the session.
Leave the gathering equipped with practical techniques and exercises that you can continue to use in your daily life to support your autonomic nervous system and well-being.
Optional: Gratitude Partnerships
Have the opportunity to pair with another Go Deeper Participant for a consecutive 30 day gratitude exercise. Not required.
Optional: Art Sharing
The sharing of art that you worked on during the session can happen during optional break out sessions and in our private Facebook Group.
