Profile Information

My interest is in
Touch Drawing Personal Use, SoulCards Personal Use, Facilitating Touch Drawing
What brings you to an interest in Touch Drawing or SoulCards?
I was first introduced to it by my best friend Tamara Knapp a few years ago, and this past May I had the pleasure of attending Deborah's workshop during the IEATA conference in NC. So far I have mainly used touchdrawing as a part of my own process, and I look forward to both deepening my own work as well as facilitating the process for others.
My experience applies to:
Therapy, Art, Creativity, Social Work, Spiritual, Intuitive, Teens, Health, Abuse, Grief, Meditation, Family, Expressive Arts, Creative Art Therapy, Organizational
Other areas of interest & experience
Hypnotherapy and age regression work, energy healing, eastern spiritual practices.

My desire is to use heart-centered hypnotherapy and expressive arts modalities to deepen one process with the other. My hope is, one day, to practice in a setting where like-minded healers and practitioners share a space and these different modalities are used to help facilitate the healing and growth of others.
Have you done Touch Drawing?
Have you facilitated Touch Drawing?
In what setting have you facilitated?
I had the opportunity to help facilitate a workshop (in an on-going series) for Parkinsonians. I've also facilitated open community groups and have used TD as part of Expresssive Art therapy with troubled teens.
Share a special experience with Touch Drawing or SoulCards.
I did some touch drawings with my goddaughter who was two and a half year old at the time . She dove into the process as if she had always been doing it (I allowed her to do each step of the process instead of preparing the surface or tissue for her), and I have no idea how long she would have gone on had I not eventually encouraged us to wrap it up. She then proceeded to tell me which ones were for her mother, her father, and her grandmother. I later mounted those pieces for them. I also used some of her other pieces to do a collaborative piece with my own touch drawings. Maybe one day that'll be a wedding gift for her...
Do you facilitate SoulCards with others?

Finding Time to Reconnect

It always makes me feel so sad, and eventually angry, that I don't keep up with my creative process when I most need it. In that sense, it is no different than my exercise routine, meditation practice, attempts at eating healthy, or any other self caring thing I (attempt to) do. I make sporadic progress, then I get impatient and stop because I get distracted by life or I convince myself that it "isn't working". I just want to skip past the painful parts and get right to the reward. "Discipline"… Continue

Dear Tanya,
Thank you so much for looking at my drawings. That series was an experiment! I attached the tissue paper from several TD sessions to canvas, let them dry overnight and then just brushed over them with water colors. A few of them I added a little glitter-- just because I never use glitter. I am having fun. It feels as though the fun is stirring up the creative juices.

Tanya, We might get the newlsetter out later today or tonight, so if you's like a super up-to-date little note or something simple when people start clicking through, it would be great to dome something today. But you have recent pictures, so that is great.
