I just finished a 9 month dive into myself – a Vision Quest really – using color, story and dance (and lots of tears, self doubt and all out tantrums).
I am proud to announce that I am now a Certified Intentional Creativity Teacher. I joyously join a long lineage of amazing women who teach and heal using creativity as our chosen method to heal the self, community, and the world.
I know there are many ways to do this good healing work, but to do it with paint and creativity is pretty mind blowing!
Intentional Creativity is a way to heal and transform ourselves and old stories using creativity. We intentionally go within and mine for gold and release that which no longer serves us. I personally have let go of some long held beliefs and stories that have held me back for years.
I believed I was broken inside, because of abuse that happened when I was a child. I have carried that with me all my life. I called it that “yucky” feeling. The one that awakened me in the middle of the night and filled me with shame and fear. The one holding me back from flying like I knew I could fly.
Using Intentional Creativity, I intentionally went inside, looked at the old fear and painted it onto the canvas in front of me. I pulled that old story and belief from my cells, my bones. I literally painted that crap out of my body. I transformed it on the canvas and made space in my body for a new story to emerge.
I changed my story!
In gratitude to a beautiful lineage of teachers.

Terre Cerridwyn Busse: I am a teacher, an artist, a mother of teenagers and a woman who fell in love with a river (ask me about the South Fork of the Yuba).
I paint, I dance, I make up stories. Sometimes I do them all at the same time and truth be told, my best work is when I am doing them all at the same time.
I paint with intention. I believe that painting with intention, we can heal and move stuck hurts and energy out of our body. I believe we can change our lives on the canvas. We can create space in our hearts and souls to attain the dreams we desire through paint, intention, story, color and symbol. Come visist me at Cerridwynstudio.com
