Each of the activities and workshops I've attended through Sanctuary Society has given me far more than I expected to walk away with. The process April teaches, of tapping into our inner voices, of "feeling, not thinking" and "out of your mind and into your heart" and then letting the art come out and express things for us - it's so freeing and so healing at the same time. I've discovered strength I didn't know I had by using this process on my own when facing a scary experience. I've discovered power I didn't know I had by looking back on some of my art pieces from her workshops or using her suggestions, and seeing so many new layers to it, and feeling new things, new perspectives on my life. I've discovered self-love I didn't know I was capable of by recognizing the value of this process and prioritizing it during stressful times of my life.
April understands how all our experiences and various aspects of our lives connect and affect one another, and her workshops and retreats teach us how to use process creation and non-judgment to help heal all those injured connections.
