Earlier this month, the creative expression workshop "Exploring My Childhood Past" was offered in Toorak, Melbourne.
The objectives of the workshop were:
· To progress in the discovery of our childhood & adolescence;
· To know and understand ourselves in our personal history;
· To integrate this history in order to accelerate our growth and healing process.
One of the main features of this workshop is the use of creative expression as a means of exploration and analysis. Creative expression can often bypass our more judgemental, cerebral functionings to lead us to a deeper and more authentic experience of ourselves.
The workshop was a fantastic experience for the participants. Here are some of their comments and artworks:
"This workshop allows me to express where words fail. An exciting journey to unravel my past that has had a negative impact on my current state of life and allow true healing to begin. It also allows the heart of me to shine."
- Annie Ling
"I have spent years doing my personal work to release a painful past and yet I feel I have achieved much more in the past 5 ½ days than I imagined possible. It has been powerful and I leave lighter and freer."
- Denise Dunbar Winton
"The creative elements of this workshop allowed access to a whole part of myself that I was unable to reach. Dipping into that new place is providing a path into the unknown yet needing to be released part of myself."
- Judith Dunbar
"Of the four workshops I have done with Zofia this one reached deepest into both my painful and my happy past giving me access to feelings I had repressed and freeing me from influences that stopped me experiencing my happy self fully."
- Laurel Johnson
"I found this workshop much more positive and filled with life than I expected."
- Ann Borg
"Enriching growth experience that sets me free. Life giving! Come and discover for yourself."
