Working with themes such as Courage, Letting Go, Boundaries, Protection and Positivity.
I was inspired to create these thematic apperception* card-sets
whilst working on my current series of paintings called The Sacred Grove | Te Uru Tapu.
I use these card sets in group work and with individual clients as a means to deepen one’s relationship to a particular theme. The chosen card can become like a visual talisman that resonates long after a session is over.
The bottom four images show the cards being used during a Creative Mindfulness Session with the staff at the Mary Potter Hospice in Newtown and during one of our Alamandria Creative Mindfulness Workshops.
*Apperception derives from the Latin ‘to perceive’ – working in this way is about making the unconscious conscious.
