Touch Drawing is a simple process of using your hands and fingers to draw your inner experience.  The process of Touch Drawing allows for a direct expression of your inner experience.  I find it a powerful and transformative process of creativity.  I offer group sessions as a part of the Creative Heart Gatherings.  Existing clients can attend a special group gathering to experience the process of Touch Drawing in a group setting and then process the individual drawings during our one-on-one sessions.  For more information and examples of the process please visit Touch Drawing
