October 31st, I presented The Bodyscapes Technique to the staff of The Little Red Door. 9 people attended the presentation, including the Vice President of Program Development, Director of Client Services, Outreach and Education Coordinator, 4 client navigators, 1 data analyst and the Director of Finance. Again, the presentation and hands-on Bodyscapes experience was well received. Stress, the subject for our our art-making, was on everyone’s mind. The holidays were around the corner. The staff of Little Red Door helps 7500 people annually, often prioritizing work productivity over their own self care. The Bodyscapes writing and drawing activity allowed them time to re-center and re-balance. See attached PDF highlighting artwork created during the The Bodyscapes Technique presentation at The Little Red Door.
“The Bodyscapes process was very useful for myself to help me look at how and where I hold my stress. But more importantly, I thought how wonderful it would be to do Bodyscapes with our clients. I imagine just how much more I would get to know them. Some of whom I have worked with for years. I would see a new part of them. A part they never get to show me.”
Said by Tanya Shelbourne, Vice President of Program Development, Little Red Door.
