Hi S tory
Art & Life-story workshop
your life story in Art
your life using the Arts
Are you stuck with your art, your work, your
relationship . . . or your life generally?
Then maybe you need to review your life so far . . .
to help identify any blocks
and thus help you to move on. One powerful and often enjoyable
way of doing this
is through the Arts - particularly drawing & painting or
focusing on our past, in a creative & expressive way, so
we can unlock those things
that hold us back . . . and accept those things that are beyond
What IS history anyway?
you've ever studied any form of history, you've probably realised
that history depends on who's telling it and what their angle,
interest and message is. The two 'sides' in a war are hardly
likely to tell its story in the same way! Likewise, as we
tell our own story, we can choose how we tell our life's history
. . . and what we leave in and take out:
example we could tell our . . .
History - significant PLACES during our lives,
through photos perhaps
Relationship History - Significant
PEOPLE, through their names for us & sayings
Artistic History - of our CREATIVE
Self, using actual works of art from over the years
Soul Journey - key events that have
opened us up to new dimensions of ourselves,
expressed in music or through a mini play
aim of such histories is bring to the fore and express feelings
about things we thought we'd forgotten about . . . but which may well
be holding us back . . . and find a more realistic perspective
to our present lives. These histories are not about factual
accuracy, they're not legal records but free-flowing reviews
of those facets of our past that need an airing. Such expression
is liberating and often joyous
has the ability to tap into our inner core and take our minds
above its normal rational machinations. We might draw a 'life-line'
or write an epitaph or create a biographical animation or
painting. Whatever we're drawn to! Our role at Pintados will
be to enable your 'art history', help you interpret it if necessary
and provide triggers and techniques to help you through any
blocks or uncertainties.
an example of how a 'life review' can help us move on, here's
Keith's life in words . .
and a slide show (1.6Mb
- needs Flash player). Writing these really enabled me
to accept that the past was just that . . . and thus had no
more hold over me
. . . I'm thus now free to move on.
our past through Art
as a catalyst for a whole new future
We use a wide range of techniques and exercises
to help you review your past and move on in your life, using
our own intuition and experience to offer the most suitable
approach to you and your situation. Our methods include:
- Active Listening
- Reiki Healing (both given by us and enabled within you)
- Creative and expressive Art (collage, drawing
voice work, music, dance, writing, etc)
- Guided visualisations
- Divinations (Angel Cards, word & text divis', etc.)
many of these techniques originate from well respected sources
we adapt them
and add our own methods to ensure an experience that is both
special and, we hope,
of real benefit to you.
are pleased to offer these consultations and workshops to individuals
seeking a partner or to couples looking for some guidance and
support on their path together.
appropriate we work as a couple and are always willing and able
to share our own experience of facing our past and moving on
Contact me to make arrangements
look forward to working with you.
