When faced with difficult memories, painful thoughts, and a sense of loneliness, it is almost natural to want to hide this pain inside and forget about trying to heal. You may feel that what you have experienced has caused so much damage in your life that you will never be your self again. Let me challenge that idea, and offer you a chance to explore a method of healing that is so powerful that you will start to feel alive the moment you learn this approach. What I am talking about is storytelling through the use of art.

Join us for our upcoming summer workshop "The Power of Storytelling: Through Art!".

Together we will paint, sip tea, and support one another. Your program facilitators will walk you through a series of artistic exercises and follow up with discussions on topics including: Engaging With Your Past, Validating Your Feelings, Unprocessed Memories, and Practicing Self Care.

Special Guest: Alexis Marie Chute , Canadian Author

At this workshop we will be joined by special guest Alexis Marie Chute, Author of Expecting Sunshine: A Journey of Grief, Healing, and Pregnancy After Loss. Following our art workshop, Alexis will join us for a Book Talk where she will share her story as well as answer any questions about her journey.

Expecting Sunshine Memoir

Expecting Sunshine tells the story of a mother, Alexis Marie Chute, who set out to rediscover her identity – not only as a parent but as a woman and artist – after her son Zachary died in her arms at birth. The memoir’s clever structure mirrors the gestation of Alexis Marie’s subsequent pregnancy; the book beginning with conception followed by three sections, the three trimesters.

Through powerful flashbacks, readers learn of Alexis Marie’s pregnancy with Zachary and his few moments in the world, witnessing how grief touches every aspect of family life, though in different ways.
