Workshop 3: Body as a story-teller: using body-mapping in self-healing
About the workshop
Medicines are not the only way to heal. While medicines eradicate the symptoms from the body, healing requires integrating mind, body and soul. Health has deep cultural roots, therefore healing is a self-reflective and iterative process. Body-mapping is a creative therapeutic tool that brings together bodily experiences, mental processes and visual artistic expression. It situates health both spatially and temporally, and thereby does deep healing of mind, body and soul.
So, what does your body say? Have you ever tried to hear the stories your body tells? How does that speak of who we are? Let’s listen together.
