About Inner U
Our programs are lovingly designed specifically for different age groups and use components from art therapy, mindfulness and meditation. They include a theme and focus for each session, and incorporate something for the mind, body and spirit.
The power of art Therapy is immeasurable. When we are unable to quantify our feelings in words, art therapy offers a place of comfort, freedom and expression. It is a safe and non-confrontational way to express what is within. Meditation offers the time which is so often lacking in today's society, to connect to our inner self. When we do this regularly we begin to listen to what truly defines us, brings us pleasure and purpose. Focusing on our breath and stilling the body and mind can benefit our health, happiness and relationships.
Inner U provides a safe, encouraging and inspirational environment to connect to your inner self, find your strength and explore your creativity.
What is Art Therapy?
Art Therapy is client-centred and therefore can take many different formats depending on who is participating. We act as a facilitator to the experience, helping to guide participants to discover their own meanings from the creative journey.
We use a range of techniques and materials such as meditation, paints, pastels, crayons, fabric, clay and flora. Participants don't need to be artistic or have any experience with art making.
The focus is on the process, not the outcome!
What is Holistic Education?
When children are engaged in what they are doing they will naturally learn. Inner U offers a range of learning experiences to foster this way of learning.
Art Therapy in Action
Be Yourself; Everyone else is already taken.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Creativity Is Intelligence Having Fun.
Education of the mind without education of the heart is no education at all.
