Therapeutic Collage Group Workshop
“And the image gave voice where words had been silenced....”
Presented By Lani Kent
Therapeutic Arts Facilitator
Lani Kent offers a unique opportunity for recovery groups, survivors, and those in the helping professions who journey with the tender souls that live in the aftermath of wounding life experiences. Lani considers it a sacred honor to have been invited to share with many recovery/support groups and processing a variety of personal stories (childhood trauma, sexual abuse, domestic violence, addiction, grief, loss and other life season changes). Lani also shares this process with women's groups and other life sojourner gatherings. This unique event would be meaningful to share with a friend, a daughter, or kindred spirit who shares a heart for courageous creativity!
Lani’s work, “Healing Expressions”, began as a way to share in the form of art, words and images that which would encourage, heal, and inspire faith, authenticity and transparency in the hearts of wounded souls. She shares from her own personal journey of emotional healing through the powerful medium of “Restorative Creativity”, expressive collage and interactive art journaling. In an atmosphere of safety and acceptance, she invites participants to collect and collage personally meaningful images that encourage self discovery, growth, release and transformation of emotions and healing.
These intuitive and unique collage expressions offer a gentle opportunity to embrace the footprints of the past and discover the hopeful footsteps of tomorrow. They become a window into the soul. These “visual narratives” are created with the childlike simplicity of scissors, glue and images but their meaning is deeply moving and uniquely profound to each participant. As Lani weaves her own story and artwork throughout the process, hearts are softened and opened to the gift of healing.

"From the moment you step into the room surrounded by Lani's art, you know you have entered sacred ground. Lani and her artistic expressions lead you to embrace and honor your own heart 's story with courage and care. For my healing group (recovering from sexual abuse), the experience opened our hearts a little wider, to feel more deeply and to see our stories in new form with more kindness and truth. Lani brings as a healing sojourner so much care and deep compassion. The experience is truly an embrace of love on the healing journey!"
Susan Brock, Life Coach, Open Heart's Journey Leader
"Lani Kent has been using her art to encourage and offer healing to others for many years. Her unique ability to work with survivors to understand their stories through the use of art is unparalleled. Lani brings a deep understanding of trauma and its impact on the heart, mind and body, and creates a safe environment for clients to explore these issues. I wholeheartedly recommend Lani and her work within the healing community."
Cindy Brosh,Therapist, LPC
"As a survivor of abuse, I had insisted on living most of my life with my fist in the air; determined to take control over everything else that was to happen to me in the rest of it, so I would never be hurt again. A few years ago, I literally came to the end of myself, exhausted with trying to force a life to be lived in darkness when my soul was crying out to live in light. The gift of Collage that Therapeutic Arts Facilitator, Lani Kent brought to my journey helped me in trusting God to meet me back in the pain I had been holding silent. Collaging has gently guided me to honor yet another piece of my heart in a sweet and sacred surrender, to receive love and forgiveness for myself by rediscovering the truth of who I am, and to choose the path of life."
Brenda, Therapeutic Collage Group Workshop Participant
*Due to the emotionally potent experience of working with images in this workshop, if you are a survivor of trauma under the care of a therapist, please consult with your therapist to determine if the timing is right for you to participate. For trauma survivors, it is advised you are in a safe place with support to further process what this workshop may evoke. Please take good care of yourself!
