The Body: A Vehicle to Vulnerability was born from the belief that symbolic imprints create deep and profound healing.
Our bodies react to all of our memories, our lived experiences, and our trauma. Thus, if our bodies keep the tally of our life, then perhaps by giving our bodies a new memory, could we not also get the body to begin to heal and thus help us heal? This art therapy inspired project began with the following questions: what if someone gets to tap into vulnerability and really feel seen and understood by seeing their vulnerability as symbols on their bodies? What if while a story of pain is shared, we are creating new relationships and connections of these emotions through metaphor, symbol, and art? What if healing can take place through symbol and through the body instead of simply through our words and own creations. This experiential asks participants to use their bodies as a mirror for their experience. Would you be open to your words and experience be expressed on your flesh?
