If you’ve been listening for a while, you know I tend to talk a lot about how to care for yourself. Today, I have a special guest on with me to discuss this in a way I’ve never really dove into before.

Cindy Ingram is a former client of mine, as well as a good friend and colleague. As an art lover, former art teacher, and art connection facilitator, Cindy knows that art is a great way to connect with your emotions. I know that, for me, art has become really powerful but not necessarily in the way we think of art.

So in this episode, we delve into emotional fluency and feeling your feelings but through the lens of personal art connection. Cindy even walks me through an interactive exercise where I personally connect with a work of art live, right here on the show!
