First Workshop - Making art to bring some parts of our stories to Jesus.

During my first night of teaching in Turkey, I modeled a way of using art as a bridge to release trauma and difficult parts of our stories to the cross. Trauma is stored in the non-verbal parts of our brains, and deep in our hearts, and the art making helps release stored trauma. This type of art making is focused, intentional and often brings healing. The time with the women, during this first workshop, was very special. It was an important way to begin to share life stories.
