3:00PM — 4:00PM
Join CSI & Art Not Shame for this digital collage workshop. Participants will be weaving a collaborative digital collage, focusing on themes of self-compassion, as well as loving and joyful imagery. We will be practicing how to use collage as an accessible medium and tool for expressing and exploring self-compassion in times of distress, by yourself and with others. 

For full participation, students are encouraged to bring at least 3 images of items that provide comfort and care for themselves. It could be a treasured item, favourite animal, a mug of hot chocolate, your favourite scenery – anything that gives you a sense of warmth and care. We invite those interested to quiet their mind, choose imagery from your heart, and most importantly, to play!
