Shantih Shala Holistic Arts
Art Therapy & Energy Work Immersion:
‘Artistic Metamorphosis’ with Jenny Jia & Josephine Ong
6/2 (Sun 周日) 4:30-6:30pm
@ The White Room 白色空间
Shantih Shala Holistic Arts (SSHA) and You Are Matter joins forces again at The White Room!
After several successful and fruitful collaborations together, SSHA will host another joint workshop at The White Room for another unique session!
What does ‘metamorphosis’ mean to you? If you could interpretate this into colours, shapes, lines and textures on a physical plane, how would it look like? On a mental and emotional level, how would you translate this into sounds, movement, vibrations, feelings, mood and energy? Metaphysically, how would you encapsulate thoughts, smells, taste, qualities and sensations? We begin to explore and fully appreciate the art of subtlety and its impact on our senses.
Treading into mysterious territories merging Art Therapy and Energy Work, together we shall experiment, explore and create original, authentic artistic expressions that reflects our true spirit. Unlimited by common perceptions of aesthetic values, free from judgment and expectations, we invite you to dive deep into the power of the Presence to unleash the inner artist within yourself. No experience needed, just bring an open mind and a playful heart.
What is Art Therapy?
Art Therapy (not to be confused with Therapeutic Art which includes other creative therapies such as Drama Therapy and Music Therapy) is using art as a form of communication and expression of an internal state or reflection of oneself or the world we experience.
Art therapy may focus on the creative art-making process itself, as therapy, or on the analysis of expression gained through an exchange of patient and therapist interaction. The psychoanalytic approach was one of the earliest forms of art psychotherapy. This approach employs the transference process between the therapist and the client who makes art. The therapist interprets the client’s symbolic self-expression as communicated in the art and elicits interpretations from the client. Analysis of transference is no longer always a component.
The British Association of Art Therapists defines art therapy as “a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of expression and communication.”
The American Art Therapy Association defines art therapy as: “an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.”

What is Energy Work?
Categorized under ‘HEART’ practices in the SSHA philosophy of holistic wellness, Energy Work is an umbrella term encompassing Energy Healing, Reiki, Sound Therapy, Crystal Balancing and Aromatherapy.
Energy Healing is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can benefit from. Many case studies have shown the positive, beneficial results in virtually every known illness and malady. It has also been proven to work in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Sound Therapy is the art of using the breath, voice work, ancient Tibetan Singing Bowls and other instruments, we explore sounds as a vibrational tool for healing and wellness. We will also tap into harnessing the potential of our own voices as a direct and powerful healing practice. Sounds carry powerful vibrations that can interact, repair and heal the subtle energies within our physical, mental, emotional and energy bodies. It ground us, promotes deep peace, de-stress our overactive minds, opens and heals our emotional wellbeing, among many other benefits.
Crystal Balancing: All crystals contain vibrations that could be harnessed for the purpose of healing and balancing our subtle energy system in the mind, body and heart. Since ancient times, crystals are considered as one of the most sacred gifts from nature with its many functions. Furthermore, it is also a useful and creative tool in Colour Therapy due to its abundance of colours, shapes and sizes that holds specific meanings and interpretations. During a healing session, receivers are invited to choose a crystal they feel connected to by tuning into their intuition and instincts. The crystal is then used in conjunction with other modalities during the treatment to maximize the healing process.
Aromatherapy is the art of using plant materials and aromatic plant oils, including essential oils, and other aroma compounds for improving psychological and physical well-being. Working with the olfactory system, or sense of smell has been proven to effectively deepen the healing process and enhance the overall experience. As with all objects, especially objects from nature, they carry vibrations that could become powerful tools for healing and regeneration. Receivers will enjoy the many different benefits from various oils, especially the customized blends from SSHA which are based on the needs of each individual.
