HEALING CIRCLES at St. Paul's
The root of the word “healing” is “to make whole.” For some, it is a return to wholeness or a return of hope. For others, it may be a renewed sense of purpose despite difficult circumstances. Drawing support from community in a safe space for listening and processing is at the heart of Healing Circles.
- Healing Circles help us step out of ordinary time into a safe and accepting environment in which to explore our healing.
- With open minds, we work together to discover the best ways to remove obstacles to healing, alleviate suffering and deepen our capacity to heal.
- With open hearts, we access our own inner guidance to understand where the greatest healing – in body, emotions, mind and spirit – can occur.
BiLingual HEaling Art Circles
Healing Art Circles utilize art therapy exercises. The groups focus on a different topic each week, such as grief, loss, emotions, or stress. The sessions are open for anyone to join at any time; each is conducted in Spanish and English. We meet in the Open Heart Studio (S-300).
The groups are co-facilitated by Rev. Nataly Negrete, Fe y Esperanza minister, and Helen Spaw, who holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the College of Santa Fe with an art minor, focusing on art therapy and a masters in art therapy and creativity from New York’s Pratt Institute.
