Join us as we make space for self-inquiry through creative art-making in a co-created sacred space.

We will honour personal wisdom as we facilitate self-expression through creative art-making. During this session, you will explore your own ability for personal medicine making.

There is no artistic skill required to participate. You can use paper with any medium you may choose for the processes that will be shared. At a minimum, we recommend an A4 paper pad and pens, markers, or pencils. For those who have an established visual arts practice, you can bring any suitable medium, in addition to what is recommended.

Who is this for: There is no age restriction for attendance, though we would advise that the ability to set an intention and have the capacity to sit with the sacred is essential.

Session structure: Opening with intention setting and agreement to honour personal exploration and respectful sharing. Guided art-making process and poetry reading. To close we will hold space for those who wish to share.

Where: Zoom details to follow booking.

About the facilitators:

Kylie Cooper is an Australian based artist, art therapy student and mother of a neurodivergent ten year old. She has a life-long love of the great mystery and of mother nature. Kylie has lived experience of medically diagnosed psychosis and the harms caused by the medical system. She views this experience as life changing, but also part of her psycho-spiritual journey. Kylie's calling lies in the healing arts where she can be of service to others. The wisdom of the pain and grief of her own lived experience helps her in guiding others to their personal wisdom well-spring.

Karin Jervert is a US based artist, author and psychiatric survivor. She is certified in eCPR and Personal Medicine and currently serves as Arts Editor at Mad In America. Her artwork includes nonfiction essays, visual art, graphic narratives, and poetry that explores self empowerment, nature and the sacred, normalization of suffering and the power of creative expression to transform trauma - particularly trauma experienced as a result of forced psychiatric treatment. Her study of Buddhism, earth based spirituality, ritual practice, and improvisational comedy find their way into her work as well.
