We will be posting details of our 2018 workshops soon!
Eco-printing for Self-Reflection
In the Beautiful Wasteland Studio, we see the eco-printing process as a wise companion in our pursuit of meaningful living. We eagerly attend to what we may come to know about the “bundles” of our own lives as we collaborate with the leaves and paper before us. We have come to see the stories of our mind intellect as one kind of knowing, but not a comprehensive one. We equally value processes that engage our other intellects to support us in generating new perspectives, making sense of our experiencing and moving into our preferred ways of being.
As we forage, gather, arrange, bundle, wait and unwrap we are immersing ourselves in a rich multi-sensory eco-system. Using art therapy tools to slow down to a pace of being that invites an attending to the smaller details of our experiencing sheds light on intricate exchanges filled with wonderful information about our ways of being. In our workshops we pay particular attention to the sensory experiences gifted in these exchanges and in doing so we begin to glimpse ourselves as collaborators in the complex tapestry of life, both our own and others.
