I want to talk to you all about something I rarely talk about these days- ART. I want to talk about it because I used to teach encaustic art classes while also practicing medicine. But I quit teaching art after I left the hospital and started a full-time writing and teaching career. The only art classes I taught once I left the hospital were with Shiloh Sophia, the founder of Intentional Creativity. And now Shiloh and I are collaborating alongside our partners in a new class INSPIRED: A Trauma-Inspired Approach To Self-Healing. We’ll be painting and practicing Intentional Creativity, in addit ..read more

As I watch the primaries unfold, I suspect I’m not the only one having flashbacks. Not only am I flashing back to the utter horror of 2016, when the gloves came off and all the sexist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic Americans got full permission to stop pretending to care about equal human rights for all and just got outright abusive. I’m flashing back to feeling like I don’t belong in my own country anymore, that I might need to become a political refugee and escape to a safer country. I’m flashing back to the awareness that as I am feeling that way, I’m also nearly at the top of the privile ..read more

Writing From Your “Parts” For Healing Purposes
Lissa Rankin
by Karoline
1M ago
If you’ve ever written for therapeutic healing purposes or for self-expressive creativity, you might realize that different parts might show up when you write. Maybe you have perfectionist parts that impede your creativity by trying to get everything exactly right. Maybe you have parts that want to set the record straight or get validation (finally.) Maybe you’re hoping someone will praise your writing or be influenced by it in some positive way. Maybe you feel shy about writing because someone once told you that you weren’t good enough or didn’t have the right to write. Maybe parts compare y ..read more

When I was introduced to Internal Family Systems (IFS) and my “parts” a decade ago, one of the first parts that stepped up to meet me was my writing part.

But I had a hard time focusing on my parts in the beginning, so writing about them helped me give them the love and attention they needed.  Looking back, it makes sense that my parts wanted to ally with my writing part to get to know me.
