Profile Information

My interest is in
Touch Drawing Personal Use, Facilitating Touch Drawing
What brings you to an interest in Touch Drawing or SoulCards?
I took a workshop with Deborah in Rowe, MA last winter and it has changed my life. I am 64 and I haven's felt such passion for something in a long, long, time. Helen, one of our facilitators, said "Hang your drawings on the walls and just look and live with them" and this is what I do..my bedroom has about 75 drawings up and it looks like wallpaper all around! I try to touch draw at least once a week, but I do it alone as I haven't found anyone in this area who touch draws. By joining the Touch Drawing Community, I am hoping to find someone near to touch draw with. I recently ordered the facilitator workbook, and when I feel ready I plan to start giving workshops to friends who have expressed interest after having seen my work.I
Other areas of interest & experience
I have been doing yoga for most of my life and am also involved in a sangha and meditate with them when I can.

I love the outdoors...cross country skiing, biking, kayaking, hiking. I have a vegetable garden and also many flower gardens.
Have you done Touch Drawing?
Yes
How did you find out about the Touch Drawing Community?
I recently purchased the Touch Drawing Facilitator Workbook and the community was mentioned in Deborah's letter.
Have you facilitated Touch Drawing?
Yes
In what setting have you facilitated?
I started by doing sessions with one or two family members and friends. I have since expanded to larger groups, though still all of my friends.
Share a special experience with Touch Drawing or SoulCards.
Recently I did a touch drawing session and I set as my intention to delve into the anxious and fearful feelings I have been having around starting to give touch drawing workshops to some of my friends. I also invoked the Guiding Spirit of Touchdrawing (for the first time) and set to work.

I was pretty astounded at what came out of that session. It started with a drawing that looked like a barrister, then to a person in front of bars, then a person in back of the bars in a cell, then a child in a cell and the last one a fierce person breaking the bars with her bare hands!!

Conclusion: Break away from these habitual thought patterns that I have had, probably since a child, telling me that can't do something, telling me not to try, judging, judging, judging. I have been a prisoner of these thoughts for as long as a can remember and know I have touch drawing to help me break these habitual thought patterns!!
Is there anything else you would like us to know about you?
Just that I feel no matter how old we are, we can still grow and help others to grow also. I feel very fortunate to have heard of touch drawing and had the courage to take the class myself and now hope to share it with others to help benefit their lives.

Hi Karen,

I took a touch drawing workshop at Rowe last winter with Deborah.
I am actually going to be at Rowe for another workshop June 15 to 17 on Labyrinths. Will you be around that weekend? Might be fun to get together and draw. Possibly Friday before my workshop or Sunday afternoon?

Karen, I am sorry i didn't welcome you sooer - I was with my family for a few weeks supporting the pasage of my father and just didn't kep up with Touch Drawing things. I love reading about your expereince Touch Drawing - If you ever want to photograph the series you escribe and write it up for our website, that would be such an inspiring contribution. Also, to help you feel more comfortable introducing your friends to Touch Drawing, remember they are your friends and you are sharing something you love with them, so it is not a 'performance'....keep me posted! Blessings, Deborah
