Touch Drawing is a simple but profound creative process. All you do is move your hands on paper that has been placed over a surface of paint. The resulting impressions are seen upon lifting the page. With lines coming directly from your fingertips, you create many drawings in a single session. As you are present to the sensations of the moment, each is an imprint of your body and psyche on the page. This freedom of expression allows for a powerful transformational process to occur. When you are complete with your series of drawings, you can reflect upon them, witnessing a visual record of your inner process.

Deborah creates an atmosphere that is conducive to deep and authentic expression. She gently guides the sessions with non-intrusive suggestions and evocative live music (heartbeat drum, voice, crystal bowls). Movement, vocalizing, writing and SoulCards are woven into the day. Touch Drawing opens a portal to your core creative energy, offering a deep sense of connection and renewal.

If you are a therapist, social worker, health practitioner, artist, intuitive, educator, counselor, chaplain or someone who wants to bring more creativity into your life, you are encouraged to integrate Touch Drawing in your own unique way. No artistic confidence is necessary! Find out more about Touch Drawing.
