Collective Creative Care – for compassion in these troubled and uncertain times while reckoning with racism and pandemic

Karen Misseldine, a Licensed Mental Health Therapist and Registered Art Therapist as well as a local potter, will talk about grappling with feelings of white fragility and working through them with art therapy.

“My theme is centering around creative collective care to help us remain courageous to stay awake, attend, engage, listen and respond by first acknowledging and attending to our own discomforts and simply being. Participants will experience a short Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy meditation and then be invited to use art materials of their choice to respond with line, shape, color and movement to their experience of the meditation. It would be lovely if a couple people would like to share their image and their experience. Please have members be prepared with the following:

1.  Paper and simple art media of their choice such as oil pastels, crayons, markers, colored pencils, water color, collage materials…

2.  Choose your own music to play or have silence during the art experiential (Please mute your mic).”

Carolyn Corbin, service leader.
