Healing with Art and Stories 2020
With Dr. Amira Ayad
December 12, 2020
Healing With Art & Stories will be an interfaith intimate retreat for women (limit – 10) that will take you on a journey of healing and self-transformation.
We will be using Narrative & Art healing modalities for re-framing our stories of personal search for meaning, health, and happiness.
The retreat is based on the 7 I’s of Transformation model that integrates Islamic tradition with Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, and the Ayurvedic Chakra model of human development.
This year, we will focus on Jonah’s story. Join Amira on this journey as you will delve into of belly of the whale, explore your innermost cave to get in touch with your deeper emotions, emerge with a richer, happier and more fulfilling narrative, and maybe find your calling along the way.
You will be using art and journaling to develop your “Heroine’s Journey,” your personal story of courage and vulnerability; you will be integrating your experiences of joy and pain, love and frustration, health and wounding, ups and downs… You will be weaving your own preferred richer narrative that will enable you to find your own unique life meaning and purpose, to find happiness and health.
