Group Workshops for Personal & Professional Development through Art Therapy with Transpersonal Art Therapist – Kerryn Knight

I love the work I do !  I love the people I meet when I facilitate my workshops! Together we share, we laugh, sometimes we cry but we always say “A Ha” – and it’s in those “A Ha” moments of self awareness that the magic happens.
Join us for the magic that self awareness brings”

Plant Your Vision Workshop | 30th September

What vision do you want to cultivate for yourself in 2018 andbeyond?

This unique workshop combines a vision board process and borrows from the Traditional South American ‘Despacho’ making ceremony where you create a parcel of dreams and wishes and offer it up to the powers that be.  The workshop involves guided imagery and creative and empowering processes to plant in your garden or have indoors.

In this ‘Plant Your Vision’ workshop you decorate a bio-degradable clay container etched with the year 2018.  Noting and drawing your dreams on paper, you symbolically plant your dreams and wishes along with a herb seedling into the clay container.  Throughout the year, you can nurture your herbs and benefit from its produce.  At the same time you symbolically plant your dreams and wishes for your year ahead and benefit from their cultivation.!  Think of it as a living, growing vision board !

Set In Stone Workshop | 28th October 2018

This workshop invites you to relax through a meditative process, gain and ground insight, setting the inner wisdom that arises ‘in stone’.

Through a guided imagery and meditation process, Kerryn provides the space for you to go within and access inner wisdom and resources.  You are then invited to ‘set in stone’ the insights you have tapped into by recording personal symbols, words or imagery.  Placed on an alter, or special place in the home or garden, these beautifully decorated stones are vivid, powerful and constant reminders of the makers strengths and resilience.


Dreams & Symbols Workshop | 11th November 2018

This workshop invites you to explore your dreams and the personal symbols that exist within them.  Using symbols and creative dream imagery you are empowered to explore the powerful and personal messages your dreams hold for you.  Our dreams speak a language that is held deep within our psyche and when deciphered hold many answers, wisdom and act as guidance for us.

 


Symbol Beads Workshop | Next Workshop to be scheduled soon

Using various mediums, this ritual allows you to choose and thread a series of symbols based on themes including personal strength, cultural heritage, hopes and dreams as well as your growing edge and challenges.

Beginning with a guided meditation, you are then invited to choose and create beads to thread and tie together as a response to a series of questions designed to evoke the soul to speak. Through this deep therapeutic workshop the wearable and transportable symbols become a powerful positive reminder of your inner resources and resilience when needed such as in times of stress and anxiety or to remind you to continue on your path to your joy and passion.


Spirit Figure Workshop | Next Workshop date to be confirmed

Using material, paper, string, wool and other mediums, you are guided through therapeutic processes to creatively record your hopes and dreams or alternatively what worries you. Through this deep therapeutic workshop the transportable spirit figure becomes a powerful symbol of your strong self. Alternatively the figure can hold your worries, safely externalising any troubles and anxieties therefore defusing any negative feelings through a safe and nurturing process.


Tree of Me Workshop | Next Workshop to be scheduled soon

You are invited through a series of creative therapeutic processes to experientially build self awareness through tree symbolism. The tree and its many parts symbolises you, your history and roots, the face you share to the world, your inner self and where you are ‘growing to’.   Detailed information on the symbolism for each part of the tree is provided at the workshop and your unique experience discussed at the end of the session grounding the experiential process for you so you can identify and harness your strengths.  You get to take home your life-sized wall hanging created and embellished by you.


Spirit Guide Workshop |Next Workshop to be scheduled soon

Following a guided meditation, you are invited to create an artwork depicting your spirit guide, totem animal or image of a symbol of personal power and resilience. Designed to tap into intuition and natural inner resources to build confidence and self awareness, this workshop provides an opportunity for personal insight and you get to take away your individual life-size canvas wall hanging created and embellished by you.


Treasures in the Sand Workshop |Next Workshop to be scheduled soon

With an introduction to Sandplay therapy this experiential workshop allows you to witness and experience the power of sandplay and gain insight for yourself and find solutions to issues.

Behind The Mask  |  Next Workshop to be scheduled soon

Making and moulding a mask invites you to explore the persona you share with the world around you and also to explore what lies behind it.  In this workshop you are invited to draw out what is shown and what is hidden then through moulding clay you are invited to capture the mask that lies between the two. This ‘bridging’ mask helps to initiate a creative exploration of the self, allowing your soul to speak and gaining insight for a richer life experience.
