When I first became a certified life coach, I wanted to figure out how to combine my past career as an artist with my new career as a coach. I began offering process painting workshops. Here’s how it worked: participants were given 12 colors of tempera paint, a variety of brushes and sponges to paint with, and large sheets of paper. After guiding them through a meditation to help them access their inner child, I’d play relaxing music and encourage them to let go and paint. The goal was to release their inner critic and enjoy the process without focusing on being “good at art”. The results were breathtaking. Clients had breakthroughs about relationships and jobs they were stuck in. Many went on to change their lives for the better.
