Stained: An Example Of An Art-Making Exercise For Self-Awareness

mother hennaYou know we love creative expression as a way to process our experience of grief.  This is a great post by Cath Duncan describing a creative exercise that allows us to acknowledge the “stain” in our lives that grief brings, while seeing the many layers, watching the stains evolve and become the foundation for other things; become part of this incredible whole.  It is a beautiful post that made me want to run out and buy a canvas and start creating.  Don’t miss it, especially if you are looking for some inspiration for creativity!

How to Break Up With Your Therapistbreak up with your therapist 2

The last post we wanted to make sure you didn’t miss this week was our own!  We had a small technical glitch last Monday and our post didn’t go out by email.  We know some of you may have spent the whole day refreshing your email over and over, counting down the moments until our Monday post would come, never to receive it.  We can only image how devastating that was and we apologize!  But here it is . . . how to break up with your therapist, filled with inspiring break-up media clips.

You weren’t one of the people crying at your desk Monday when you didn’t get our email, because you didn’t know you could get our posts sent to your email?  Well you can!   Subscribe over on the sidebar or below the comment box to get our new posts right to your inbox.
