The purpose of the ‘Koori Spiritual Healing Workshops, designed and facilitated by Kerryn Knight of Empowered Art Therapy for Ngwala Willumbong Ltd and Youth Justice – South East Metropolitan Region is three-fold. The overarching purpose is to provide a culturally appropriate creative outlet for connection with culture providing the potential for spiritual healing. This is achieved in 3 ways. Firstly through a series of specifically designed meditation and creative processes the participants will have an opportunity to connect with their culture for spiritual healing. They will gain tools to find their unique ‘voice’ to share and positively re-frame their story. Secondly the participants are invited to create a group piece. This group piece is used as a vehicle for teamwork and leadership, champions are promoted as they work together towards a common goal and art outcome. The art outcome is used to decorate Ngwala Willumbong giving the participants a greater sense of connection with the service. Thirdly Kerryn, through her open style of sessions in a nurturing setting at Kindred Art Space promotes a sustainable support network for the participants as they get to know each other in a non-judgemental and relaxed environment beyond words.
