Focusing-oriented expressive arts (FOAT®) helps us to find an inner place of stability—and to access our body’s knowing and creative wisdom. In this workshop, we will begin with a centering  exercise to ground ourselves and connect with the larger community. Next we will do a Focusing exercise to access a “source of strength”—letting a felt sense emerge from it. Through a user-friendly approach, we will find a way to express our felt sense into a creative expression—which might come as a color, shape, image, word, phrase, gesture or sound. We will also identify a small step to carry this inner strength into our daily life.

As we bring into awareness a source of strength and externalize it through creative expression, our resilience becomes enhanced. Sharing in community supports and nourishes carrying this strength forward in our lives.

Note: No experience necessary in Focusing or the arts
