Hello Lovelies! Today I am sharing the April Prompt Previews for Light The Path, our year long creative workshop for survivors. Every month on the 10th I share a little bit about the prompt and what our topic is, along with sneaks of the Designer Collection that is included each month. This month we are inviting The so very talented Elif Sahin back with us! She lovingly created the January collection for us, and I cannot wait to share her gorgeous creations with you here. You can learn more about Elif and purchase other amazing collections she has designed on her website here: Sahin Designs.
Each month in our workshop we tackle a concept that survivors commonly experience, and I provide insights and thoughts to help us understand our trauma better, and create healthier ways to cope. We then do creative exercises through journaling, art, photography, and scrapbooking to support that concept and incorporate our creativity into our healing practices. Our designers each month create a pocket scrapbook collection that provides visual opportunities to process and heal. This month we are talking about the emotions that come with having experienced trauma, grief, and loss, and how we can honor those emotions as we heal from them.
As trauma survivors, we often find ourselves overwhelmed with big emotions. Pain and suffering causes deep emotional responses, which then in turn impact our experiences, our relationships, and our entire lives. The process of healing includes working through difficult emotions as they come, and learning to give ourselves the love and compassion we have long needed. Elif has designed our collection with the colors of Spring to incorporate the beauty of growth and blossoming. She has included journaling prompts that remind us, ever so gently and beautifully, to feel these deep, complex emotions, and then to honor them.
There are so many gorgeous elements in this collection and I can’t wait to share it with our Light Bearers in the workshop. We will be over-turning some common misconceptions about emotions in this month’s workshop, and will learn new ways to look at emotions as powerful manifestations of our truest selves. After all, it is through identifying, feeling, and processing our emotions that we become authentically who we are, and we are able to embrace who we are, as full humans with emotions that serve us, instead of scaring us.
There are several ways you can join us in our workshop, and I invite you to join us on this amazing journey of self-discovery and incredible creativity. You can find more details on our Light The Path page, and as always you can contact us with any questions you might have. Also, we understand that financial difficulties may make it difficult to commit to this journey, and if that is the case for you please let us know! We will find a way to bring you on this journey with us. Thank you so much to our designer, Elif Sahin, this month, for sharing her passion and her talents with us! This month’s prompt will be released on April 20th, so be sure to get signed up!
