‘Becoming the Captain of your Ship’
A 6-Evening Creative Journey towards Self-Awareness and Empowerment
Facilitated by Josephina Beckers
‘Becoming the Captain of your Ship’ is a metaphor for Life. How can you feel in control of your life again while so many things seemingly outside of your control, influence your sense of health and well-being?
This experiential journey gives you valuable tools for self-reflection as well as a creative outlet to help you dive deep into the ocean of your emotions and face head-on the whirlwind of your thoughts.
With gentle yet profound processes – using the magic of rocks and a variety of art media like clay, paint and collage material – we travel through the four directions of body, mind, emotions and spirit to learn to stand in the centre of our personal wheel, the sacred circle of Life. In the end, it is all about finding self-control and balance within yourself and your life.
Every week will be a surprisingly new experience. The energy shifts and changes with the focus of the evening; but always you will be held in a safe and nurturing cocoon, supported on your personal journey by the facilitators and the group.
As we work together in a small group setting with a minimum of 3 and maximum of 6 people, it is important for you to be able to commit to the 6 sessions.

Why Group Art Psychotherapy?
Working through emotions and exploring the body felt sense through art therapy in a group setting can be a powerful experience. As each member is at a different point in their life and brings their unique lived experience, inevitably watching others cope with and overcome similar problems instills hope and inspiration.
A special benefit of group therapy is the relief that accompanies the realization that you are not alone. Feeling understood by the group members helps increase your self-esteem and feelings of self-worth. Gaining insight into yourself and your interpersonal relationships lead to improved social skills. With the support of the group to release conscious or unconscious feelings you will gain inner strength and resilience to face life’s situations from a stance of the empowered Self.
In every moment of your life, you create the direction and content of every moment of your life.
