What are Eco-Art Experiences?
Adapted from Eco-Art Therapy principles of nature-based art creation in which creatively nature is used as the subject; the setting, the material, or a combination of the three. The Goal of my application of this approach in this context is to support a sense of love, peace, and belonging cultivated internally and externally throughout the art-making process.
These Experiences are based on
Symbolism and Serendipity From the Soul: Carl Jung studied culture and religions throughout time and the world. He popularized the reality that symbolism and serenity are powerful tools for understanding the Soul.
Art creation is healing- The simple act of creating art from a non-judgmental stance has healing effects documented by medical research such as stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system
Mindfulness has health benefits-benefits of mindfulness incorporating with art or natural process has documented positive effects on overall well-being such as increased focus, better mood, and more.
Nature is a part of us- Nature is a source of suffering and healing-creating space for the expression of this reality can validate unacknowledged strengths and pains related to connection to the natural and constructed world around us
Peer mentoring: A Peer Mentor is someone with lived experience either through their own Mental Health and Life Experiences or supporting someone very close to them such as a family member through life-disrupting symptoms. Adding to the Peer mentor model is the idea of the Wounded Healer. I practice a positive perspective and which we all hold inside us a Healer waiting to be born.
