Transpersonal Art Therapist, Debra Cowen, will introduce us to her work by taking us on a typical client’s journey. We will have the opportunity to experience the procedure for ourselves when we go through a process of meeting the Wise One, as well as do some drawing and automatic writing. The workshop promises to be experiential, fun and enlightening.
And of course, the brain is not responsible for any of the sensations at all. The correct view is that the seat and source of sensation is the region of the heart. — Aristotle
Modern neuroscience would disagree with Aristotle but did you know that the heart sends more messages to the brain than the brain sends to the heart? “I wonder what this means?”
The heart-brain connection has intrigued Belinda since 2003, when she first started using the HeartMath FreezeFramer and Emwave biofeedback tools in her practice. Her presentation will focus on the relevance and applicability of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) tools in a hypnotherapy context and will include references to some of the research in this area as well as a demonstration.
About Debra Cowen
Debra Cowen has worked with clients in the capacity of Transpersonal Art Therapy for almost a decade. She has found it to be a very successful tool in helping clients to help themselves. She runs group sessions at Newtown Neighbourhood Centre and also works privately, with clients.
Transpersonal art therapy is a healing modality, whereby one creates a scenario for clients to help them find something within themselves that can help shift a stuck way of being.
Working with clients, in the creatives, steers them away from the depths of their personal stories into the depths of their imaginative world with all its personal meanings.
Through sharing in groups or private sessions, using a process of no analysis and what something reminds one of or feels like, participants respond to whatever it is that resonates for them. They then make a connection with something in their world, which brings in a new self realisation. It is then for them to take that realisation and implement it into their daily life.
In short, the aim of Transpersonal Art Therapy is to encourage the client to become the author of their own stories, reshaping and shifting them, using imagery, metaphor and story.
