GUIDED DRAWING is a Somatic Art Therapy process.
Happening in the Arthur Bay Beach house 20 June 2022 it is the perfect location to working deep and releasing the healing powers to process past trauma.
Matt Dilges is a Phychotherapist and Systemic Constallator from the Sunshine Coast having decades of experience in mental health and works in private practise . He has been coming to Magnetic Island annually for 7 years to offer this safe process to heal trauma and assist in shifting perspective and activating self healing through his work.
Through accompaniment; containment of the field; and movement out of the body, trauma finds a way to heal itself.
Similar to Family and Systemic Constellation processes, the healing impulse is “alive and at work” given the right conditions.
In GUIDED DRAWING the images show the phases of healing and re-organisation.
The sequential images made by the hands comprise the narrative from the nervous system’s and psyche’s perspective bringing coherence and order to our lived experience.
Here the body can :
– tell its own story
– find its own healing movements
-release trapped fight/flight impulses
-internalise grounding and soothing to regulate itself
-find resources to stabilise itself to go deeper
-can clear debris for which there are no words
-restore temporal order and integrate meaning
Participants will gain:
