Workshop: Graceful Transitions
Teacher: Helene Finizio
Key materials: a notebook, a pen and an open mind (and heart!)
What I learned: there's a relatively new branch of psychology called "positive psychology" that - and this is my simplified interpretation - focuses on enhancing what works vs. fixing what doesn't; family, home and community play a major part in my reason for being and a call to love freely will drive many of my life decisions; I have trouble coming up with a list of things I love about myself; group energy can be very healing and powerful; it is humbling and a privilege to witness healing in others
I chose this session because of my last-minute decision to register. Had I registered early on I probably would've chosen something else, but at such a late date my initially preferred class was full. Turns out at the time of registration I was smack dab in the middle of a struggle involving a major life change so a workshop called Graceful Transitions naturally caught my eye.
Thank goodness for serendipitous chains of events.
This session with Helene and the group was intense and powerful - "like months of therapy in a day" I heard someone say.
Helene does what she does very. well.
Tomorrow, back to painting for Day 3...
