CSA Accredited Coach Supervisor Thea Bombeek is leading a session at the EMCC 27th Global Mentoring, Coaching, and Supervision Conference being held on the 12-14 May 2021.
Using art as a catalyst for deepening the awareness of the 'self'
The ‘self’ is your main instrument in coaching and supervision hence the importance to explore the ‘self’ as extensively as possible. Especially in these challenging times, you rely on you Self to redesign your future and serve clients to redesign theirs.
Art is par excellence a way of deepening the awareness of the ‘self’. As George Bernard Shaw said: ‘You use a glass mirror to see your face. You use works of art to see your soul.’
In this workshop I will share different ways of how you can use art as a tool to self-knowledge in your life and in your coaching and supervision. Art invites you to slow down, to become more aware of your ‘self’. If you open up to art, it touches your body and soul at many levels. Art brings you in contact with your inner beauty. I will share my own experience with the healing/whole-making effect of art in my life. I will give examples of how I use art in coaching and supervision and of its transformational impact on clients. I will share best practices on how to use art in your coaching practice.
During an art-exercise you will experience how art gets you in contact with your inner beauty. As Alain de Botton states: ‘Art is a therapeutic tool that can accompany us. It brings joy and consolation. Through art we are capable of becoming better versions of ourselves.’ Your own experience is an invitation to explore the possibilities of art with your clients.
