Join us on a journey of self-discovery and emotional growth with our upcoming GWEN Workshop: The Art of Emotional Wellness, featuring the talented artist and Expressive Arts facilitator Yolanda Grier. This healing workshop is designed to promote emotional wellness through the power of creative expression.


Participants will have the unique opportunity to explore various artistic mediums, including painting, drawing, and collage, as tools for processing and communicating their feelings. Yolanda will expertly guide attendees through exercises and techniques, unlocking their creativity and fostering a deeper connection with their emotions.


As a special addition, we'll delve into a letter-writing activity inspired by the "September Letters" book by Brittany Snow and Jaspre Guest.

Her expressive painting style which includes lots of vibrant colors is an outpouring of joy now that she’s on the other side childhood trauma.

As a self-taught artist, Yolanda experienced and observed the healing power of creativity as a means to healing and being whole. Yolanda opens the conversation of Creative Healing by being open about her own journey of surviving trauma. There is wholeness on the other side. Trust the process of creativity.
