What brings you to an interest in Touch Drawing or SoulCards?
I first heard of touch drawing when i came accross the Soul Cards. I found the images so powerful, sourced from such a deep place...they just sang to my soul, they felt true. I started working with them for divination on my shamanic path and also using them in conjunction with the runes. I then decided to have a go at touch drawing and was immediatley taken by how easy and safe it felt to express through this medium.

I am working with touch drawing regularly and hope to shortly bring it into my work with clients as a healer and shamanic practitioner as well as my work with an arts in mental health charity. I would like to work towards holding and facilitating a local touch drawing group within my community, as i feel this is such a powerful and healing way of expression that could really benefit a lot of people!
My experience applies to:
Therapy, Art, Creativity, Education, Social Work, Spiritual, Children, Health, Hospice, Meditation, Family, Creative Art Therapy
Other areas of interest & experience
Shamanism, creative process for healing and expressing our souls, Bach flower practitioner, Reflexologist, worked in mental health sector for several years, spiritual paths and their expression, practical spirituality that is applicable to everyday living, mysticism.

How did you find out about the Touch Drawing Community?

Have you facilitated Touch Drawing?
Not yet but I plan to
Share a special experience with Touch Drawing or SoulCards.
I was having particularly bad morning one day, i felt all at odds and out of sorts. I decided to sit down and do some touch drawing to explore what was going on for me. As i worked away on the board it felt like i had layer upon layer of thick heavy coats on and with each drawing somone was taking one of these coats off me. I felt lighter and lighter with each drawing until i reach a point of completion. I felt so clear and so very different to when i had first sat down, there was a vast feeling of spaciousness that i just sat with for a while afterward before getting up. It was truly profound and beautiful.
Do you facilitate SoulCards with others?
Not yet but I plan to.
If so, with whom and how?
Working with clients to help map and explore what is going on for them, to track their core issues they want help with.
Is there anything else you would like us to know about you?
Coming accross touch drawing felt like finding an old friend again, i have only felt this a few times in my life: when i first stepped on to my spiritual path at 15, when after years of exploring i finally discovered shamanism was my spiritual path, when i met my wife. It has all the signs of being something that will bring profound changes to my life.
