Being self aware means having the ability look inside ourselves so that we may clearly see what thoughts, beliefs, and emotions we are carrying with us though life. The process of self-reflection to gain self-awareness is not an easy one. 

 
 

I have had students who thought they were just coming to paint, leave completely surprised as they walk away with so much more. They carry home not just a picture, but a symbol of the time spent reflecting and listening to their inner voices.

 
 

This tangible symbol of new awareness is a beginning point. It may be used as a focal piece to aid in making changes that are needed to feel better emotionally and even physically. 

 
 

It is true I am not a physician, or a therapist, but through the methods I teach, I have seen smiles of accomplishment, tears of wonder, and the quiet resonance of personal growth in the participants who come.
