Inquiry and reflection through art making and companioning

"The arts are always there, they cannot be banished from human activity. It is primarily a naturalistic phenomenon, to make statements of significance about experience in aesthetic and expressive forms. Although the forms may change, the attempt to attribute meaning to experience in this form will never be surrendered." Warren Lett

Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives."
