I have found that if I color mandalas it takes my mind off of the pain and I also create beautiful mandalas. I use colored pencils.
I also play the piano and music helps pain so much. Music is very healing.
Thank you for these other great ideas to deal with pain.
Alice

Or along the same lines of the themes you listed?

I work in a University setting (in the Counseling Center) and I get requests all of the time to do art therapy experiential workshops for the faculty/staff. I would love to explore some new/fresh ideas for art therapy experiences for that audience. Usually the theme is basic self exploration, team building, setting personal and professional goals, finding balance and stress management. Any thoughts?
Sincerely,
Ronda Purdy
