As an art therapist, I used mandalas several years ago with a grp. of women survivors of sexual violence. It was very powerful and I haven’t used it since, but now I am inspired to go big and create a garden mandala with youth in a mental health program. thanks.

Then I use watercolors to paint the faces (often purples and blues and yellows on the face itself, and other contrasting colors for hair, etc.) Each portrait says more about the person than I can express in words as a therapist, so I am able to engage my subconscious in this process and SEE how I experience the person on deeper levels.

Alot of people find this interesting. It’s almost like a different version of myself everytime.
