“I know our time will be short but I am confident the time we share together will get you on the path you would like to go with ancestral art journaling.
I found that once I learned this process of incorporating art/journaling with the nostalgia of my ancestors I felt so grounded. Then I started to see my own stories as being meaningful and significant and my art began to change. My creating became more of a time of remembering, honoring, forgiving, healing and
celebrating. It made me more intentional about what I wanted to go creatively and what I wanted to share for my family.” See you soon, Tamara
