Create to Connect: a journey of self-expression

We invite you to explore the beauty and the power of your Creative Energy to discover and nurture your Authentic Self and enjoy your self-expression. Create to Connect is a Creative Inner Journey of self-exploration, self-expression, and transformation through artistic tools. It will be a journey inside us to process who we are in this particular moment of our life and becoming aware of all the aspects of ourselves.

Expressive Art is a safe and sacred space that allow us to fully explore and express our emotions, needs and wishes. Through the creative process, we can Connect with our Inner self, unlock our full potential and open the Heart for a Personal Re-birth. This can support us in moving forward in our lives, be more aware, use personal resources outside the workshop space, built authentic relationships.

Through this creative journey, we can connect (or re-connect?) not only with us but also with the the others, we can create interpersonal connections and discover our Inner self in the stories of the others and thanks to the process of the the others. The power of the creative energy of the Group is a wonderful gift to experience.

The Process

Our instructor and guide, Flavia Santillo will promote a safe and positive space that helps participants in the creative process, self-expression and the self exploration. All workshops are based on holistic approach where the Body movement and expression are the important key of self development and healing. In each session she will guide you through different artistic exercises and task that combine Body, Creativity and Guided meditation/visualization, in particular they include Intuitive Painting, Expressive Movement, Drama and Journaling.

Every workshop always start with a Welcome Circle , followed by a Body activity (ex. breathing, gentle warm-up, expressive movement) linked by a deep and emotional work through other artistic tools. Guided meditation and visualization help us to be in touch with our Inner world and awake our intuition. Sharing Circle will be an intense end important moment that gently will lead us to the end the session.
