Advance notice about our speaker for April 10th 2016.
Liane Wakabayashi, a long term Tokyo resident, is an artist and writer (and former journalist).
She has created a unique series of visual images (which she has made recently into a set of colorful "Genesis" cards) with which she organizes workshops or individual sessions.
She uses the images to encourage self discovery on certain themes as well as to tap into the sources of creativity and humor that she feels we all posses.
She also employs other visual art (such as in small group workshops based on simple self-portraits) to enable insights about oneself and personality strengths and so deepen self-confidence.
Liane believes that drawing affords people of all ages, even those with NO artistic background, an opportunity to reflect and see new possibilities especially with her guidance and the unexpected links to other images in her Genesis series..
Your moderator agrees that we are never too old to see ourselves anew -- in a fun and unusual way.
