Class Experience

Participants are guided in a simple yet effective exercise involving journal writing, and contemplative painting with watercolors.  Students will learn the therapeutic value of self-expression while gaining a new perspective on a stressful event or person in their lives. This is an excellent exercise to aid in conflict resolution or any internal struggle that may be troubling to individuals. The process involves encouraging students to first focus, then jot down thoughts and details regarding the difficult person or event in a letter-like form, on a postcard. They are encouraged to lightly paint over their words and then add a sprinkling of salt, in order to witness the situation “dissolve” right before their eyes.  This assists in reducing the power of intense feelings that arise, therefore releasing students of the burden they have been carrying.
