I just watched your video, and found myself quietly beginning a new phase of this sacred journey as I am absorbing the magnitude of what you captured--and shared. I am so glad that I will have the opportunity to get to spend time…"

What brings you to an interest in Touch Drawing or SoulCards?
I'm attracted to Touch Drawing for many reasons- the spontaneity it brings to my art, the element of playfulness, the richness of getting to the heart of the matter. Touch Drawing, indeed, reveals the soul that comes into the art. The images coming from freedom of expression and spiritual aspects reflects back to me what I need to see and know and leads me to a deeper place.
Share a special experience with Touch Drawing or SoulCards.
Partnering to do "Inner Portrait" facilitated by Deborah. I knew this was why i had come for the weekend workshop. A deep experience of 'getting out of my own way' when doing Touch Drawing for someone else. This allowed me to relinguish my ego as well as good practice for 'give away' And what a special gift to receive an "Inner Portrait"! Truly understanding that Touch Drawing offers a way to attune to other people. Even if I decide not to use this in my art therapy practice with others, it has opened up a wider space for compassion and open heart especially with the hospice work I do.
Thanks for the connection. Would love to hear of your creative endeavors and touch drawing musings. I am in the midst of much transition and taking time to find my next steps that involve touch drawing. I am spending more time working with my images (writing and feeling their energy...) which is both rich and seems time consuming...but right. I'm also feeling challenged to look at what my parameters are around presenting touch drawing. There is a self care fair coming up and I am looking at whether it seems right to do a 15-20 minute touch drawing experience for professionals...
Hello Susan: I was hoping I would find some fellow Mainers in the community. I live in Stonington, ME. I had to say I am not sure where Montville is. I actually was raised here. I come and go. I went south to get an art teacher certification in an alternative certification program and then returned home. I did not think the job market would be so competitive. Currently, I work as an Ed Tech III at a private school for emotional/behavioral and autistic children. We do have an art therapist. We talked about touch drawing. I hope she will let me help you facilitate a group using this technique.
Hi Susan, It was great to hear from you & yes...you are already here. Lol. Well, Welcome Back! We've missed you. Let's get some inspiration & creativity flowing. Please stop by our new group also, Soulspeak & Healing through Touch Drawing, just went live yesterday. Please let me know if I can assist in any way.
Love & Blessings,
Welcome to the community, Susan! It would be really great if you could add a photo to your profile. The site is so much friendlier with pics of the people. And please go to the Rowe 'group' and join that - Tsanya needs compay there! We will send another reminder out to the group, too. it was such a beautiful weekend. blessings, Deborah
