Welcome to my series: Healing Arts

My desire is to give you the opportunity to experience what it is I mean when I call my work "healing art chaplaincy"

Welcome to Lesson 4

Feel free to leave any thoughts in the comments below.

Find a quiet place and gather a journal or paper and pencils/pens/colored pencils/markers/crayons

Take a few moments to take some deep breaths and center yourself.

 Click here to find some of the psalms as prayers I have added to the blog and read one quietly to yourself or out loud to aid in your centering process.

Now let's begin
View and Reflect:

  1. How do you personally relate to/connect with this picture?
  2. If you could ask the artist a question, what would you ask him/her?
  3. What symbols do you notice in the artwork?    
What wisdom are you experiencing TODAY through this piece of art?

We move more deeply into the Creativity practice using one of the following options:

Begin to write about a time when you felt similar emotions that you are experiencing now


Create a drawing based on your writing


Recreate Trittel's painting while experiencing the feelings of this piece.
