Part 3 daily journal workshop. HEART. #arttherapy

Recall:

Part 1 JUST WRITE

Part 2 DRAW OUT THE WORDS

In part 2, we “drew out words” from  by circling positive and negatives.

Where do we feel our anxiety?  I feel mine right in the heart.  Recall my post on anxiety and depression where I illustrate that feeling.

Now, sketch a human heart.  You don’t have to be perfect or accurate.  Just paint or sketch it.  Doing this forces us to focus inward and centre ourselves.  Here’s an inspiration:

Now enter the words we drew out last time onto the heart.  Don’t think too much.  Just enter the ones that pop out at you.  Follow the contours of your heart.

What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it’s curved like a road through mountains. – Tennessee Williams

 Tomorrow, we collage.
