Healing In A Box

 




During this month’s healing art retreat at CHOMP, one of our projects involved selecting from an assortment of paper boxes, decorating as we desired and creating a mini “shrine."  As I sifted through the bits and bobs among the available materials, I collected items which signified what’s vital in my life and filled my little box with these items.  “Healing In A Box” was born in the process! 
 
 


May...
creativity take flight,
life be filled with much delight,
burdens be light,
dreams and goals always remain in sight.


 
 
I listed my shrine's "inventory" on the bottom of the box:
Journey
Infinite possibilities
Uplifted spirit
Love
Awareness, mindfulness
Wonder, imagination
Awakening
Triumph
Emotion, passion
Exploration, adventure
Family, friendship, connection
Bliss, peace
Health, healing, wellness
Play
Nurtured environment, growth
Groundedness, centeredness
Light, brightness, true colors
Creativity
Happiness
Fulfillment
Life's contents...contented living



 

This three-dimensional form of mixed media inspired a recent play date (well, art date actually!) with our daughter and her friend.  More tomorrow on how this creative afternoon unfolded…in the meantime, hope you're enjoying your Sunday!
