shame and creativity - 2 hr

This is the introductory workshop which will explore Shame from a theoretical, experiential and especially creative perspective. We will explore Shame from the philosophical, spiritual and psycho-therapeutic perspectives. The participants will learn various shades of Shame, explore and safely share their experience of the emotion, creatively de-mystify its importance, with the hope of regaining control on an automatic reaction. We will learn if evolutionary reactions are still valid today, and how to be more aware of what we feel. This is the original intense 2-hour experience, which will allow for a brief more personal exploration while hopefully leading to a greater assertiveness, questioning Shame also when linked to control, creativity and gratitude. 

shame and creativity - whole day

The day workshop will explore Shame from a theoretical, experiential and especially creative perspective. We will explore Shame from the philosophical, spiritual and psycho-therapeutic perspectives; we will talk and share, meet and experience, confide and maybe dream, and turn our story around. The participants will learn various shades of Shame, explore and safely share their experience of the emotion, creatively de-mystify its importance, with the hope of regaining control on an automatic reaction. We will learn if evolutionary reactions are still valid today, and how to be more aware of what we feel.

This workshop will also allow for safe space and time to discuss the level of Shame we might feel in our own profession as artists: am I good enough as an artist? Born from the skeleton of the 2-hour experience, this workshop will allow for a more personal exploration while hopefully leading to a greater assertiveness, questioning Shame also when linked to control, creativity and gratitude. 

creative writing & journalling - whole day

The day workshop will explore Creative Writing and Journalling from both a therapeutic and creative / artistic perspective. Practical exercises, self-reflective safe spaces, responsible and non-judgemental critique sessions will help the participant to delve into a more serious self-reflective writing routine, understand the usefulness of writing and journaling when connected to any form of creative expression, provide a tool which will allow turning problems into solutions, and a way to safely examine and interpret personal experiences.
