Create To Awaken
Creative Alchemies' Art workshops are for Self Discovery and Transformation. Inquiry based creative expression facilitates a deep re-connection with ourselves by engaging the nonverbal portion of the brain--this is the part that holds information that is effectively expressed without words. Our classes open you to illumine those aspects of our self that are in need of awareness, and to release that which no longer serve you. Using self-inquiry, you explore your potential for your authentic life and living. Thousands of people have healed with these classes and continue to...
Acknowledging emotional pain is a necessary step in healing. But sometimes, we are not even aware of what we may have buried deep inside through the journey of life. When we live this way, denial stays in our energy field and between us and our true life purpose.
Sometimes, we are aware of the symptoms of a wound within, but are unconscious of its deeper cause. This is the place where Energy is blocked, and effects the expression of life. Through Creative Alchemies exercises, you can bring the wound into conscious acknowledgement to pave the way for healing.
There is an extraordinary wisdom and clarity that emerges in people who engage in release of unwanted beliefs and programs through non verbal expression. This healing process facilitates a re-connection with our own truth by engaging the nonverbal portion of the brain.
Breakthroughs in psychology, neurology, and brain science now confirm that our intuitive, sensory, non-verbal intelligence is powerful in healing. While the logical portion of our brain processes about forty bits of information per second, the nonverbal portion processes about eleven million bits per second.
There is an infinite Source of support and well being that is available from within our own. We can discover this reservoir through non verbal contemplation. In this wordless place we make contact with the source of existence which leads us to our highest potential.
When we reconnect with our essence, we live our authentic life experience-a life without resistance or separation. A true Self-discovery.
** Non-verbal modalities such as drawing are effective because of the impact that trauma often has on language. Language, a function of declarative memory, is generally not readily accessible to trauma survivors of any age after a traumatic event. In particular, Broca’s area, a section of the brain that controls language is affected, making it difficult to relate the trauma narrative. In fact, when a trauma survivor attempts to speak, PET scans actually show that Broca’s area tends to shut down. Meanwhile, other parts of the brain, including the limbic system, are in overdrive, particularly in individuals with posttraumatic stress symptoms- Cathy Malchiodi, PhD, LPCC, LPAT
