Proactive Change: What The ThresholdArts Studio is All About

picture-2

Why does effecting change in ourselves and our world frequently fall short of producing the lasting change we seek? If this question is unsettling, you are on the right track. Answering it requires a radical approach.

One of the core principles of ThresholdArts is that without a method to cease a repetitive cycle that no longer serves us, we will continue that behavior.

Events which are beyond our control, and propel our lives and choices in new directions, would be one way to disrupt an unhealthy behavioral pattern. but what if we proactively chose another way before a crisis occurred in our lives?

Consider the case of Bill, who arrives to a ThresholdArts session subdued and quiet. He has lived his life caring for others — his family, his church and his vocation – but recently, a serious accident has given him pause to consider the direction of his path, and how some of the habits and routines he has developed over the years are beginning to sap his vitality. Through a powerful group process, Bill is able to tune deeply into what is beginning to emerge in his experience.

By tapping into his creative impulse by bringing to life whatever change  is required, Bill goes home with more clarity regarding what he needs to do to live a life which serves himself and the world in a more energizing and sustainable way.

Like Bill, we each have the opportunity to shift and literally rewire the way we  think, about and engage with our emotions. Through a somatic method of recognizing your body’s reflexive responses to the events in your life,  you can better choose your own responses both to your behavior and the behavior of others, and rehearse healthy responses for the future.

But how does someone like Bill sustain the change? What kind of support does he need? Part of the answer lies in practicing this most resilient place in himself in a supportive community.. That’s why The ThresholdArts Studio exists. We invite you to join us on an the adventure of forming the life you want for yourself.
