Wild Wood Healing arts offers a Rite of Passage for Women without Children who wanted them. Creativity in all its forms is used to help women explore themes such as Our place in society as women with children, loss and grief, our relationship to our body, sexuality, creativity, sowing new dreams, locating and engaging our strength and power, finding peace within ourselves and with women who have children, bringing the treasure we find for ourselves on this journey into our lives and community.
In 2012 while holding a social group for women without children who wanted them it occurred to me that some women in this situation would benefit from a rite of passage. I thought it might help to have the wounds from this life card witnessed and to go on a healing journey where strength can be found and new dreams allowed to develop that honour our life force. After four years in development the material is now ready to be held by myself and grow in partnership with all women who choose to enter and work with this Rite of Passage. For 10 year now I have worked as an artist in health settings, facilitating creative groups where the arts are used to heal. During this time I have seen how the creative process can reach beneath the surface to express and then hold what needs resolving in us. Since I was a teenager I have been exploring spirituality, psychology and art and the places where the three meet and overlap. For the past 19 years I have attended many experiential workshops, trainings and groups about working with wounds and finding our power. In order to make and hold open, safe and creative space for others, I am committed to working at depth with what needs healing in myself. Currently I am studying Medicine Wheel teachings as part of a 3 year earth based wisdom course. Alongside this I have my own art practice. For me making art is about entering a dreaming space where the soul may speak and allowing something to manifest from there. It is also a form of meditation. This work I do has been supported and enriched by Imelda Almvqvist’s two year Sacred Art Practitioner training. http://www.shaman-healer-painter.co.uk.
