Free workshops sessions for youth, family and adult groups using art, music and storytelling. For people seeking to draw strength in difficult times. Adult sessions and school holiday youth groups.
Tree of Life is a creative therapy process derived from narrative therapy. Whilst listening to 7 pieces of music, participants are guided to create their very own ‘tree of life’ from the roots to the seeds. The process will encourage you to reflect on your strengths and skills, your roots and the important things in your life that are sometimes difficult to talk about. When you have finished creating your tree, you’ll be invited to present it at the Forest of Life exhibition before taking it home.
