Aaahh! The earthy aroma of clay... the scratchy feel of crow quill pen on paper... the happy anticipation of planning a new watercolor painting. Artwork has been a source of much happiness and satisfaction for many. Through the tactile touch of art and its various forms, we can often find solace from doing art as a cathartic outlet for our grief.
"But I'm not an artist!", you might say. Well, all the better. You won't have any pre-conceived notions of how to create, or rules of design to follow. You'll more easily "create from your soul" than a trained graphic artist will.
It doesn't matter if your creations are simple stick figure drawings, or colorful and intricate abstracts, or even realistic landscapes. The value of healing artwork for you is in the doing, not the final product. (Even though more often than not the end result is a lifetime keepsake).
In other words, this process is NOT about what your drawing looks like, if you benefit by creating it.
Through The "ART" of Grief Recovery you will have the opportunity to select your art project from the listing below - if you have another suggestion your instructor is open.
"Whether grief is caused by a death or any major loss, incomplete recovery has lifelong negative impact on a person's capacity for happiness.
"The goal of The Grief Recovery Method® is to help you complete your relationship to the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by significant emotional losses of any kind." —The Grief Recovery Institute®
By following a well-defined plan you can choose completion and recovery rather than isolation and avoidance. Recovery from loss is achieved by a series of small and correct choices.
The 12-week Grief Recovery Method® takes place in a safe environment and has you:
Look at old beliefs about dealing with loss
Examine which losses have affected your life
Take new actions that lead to healthy lessoning of pain from loss.
