Brentwood - Sunday, February 13th at 2pm - Sheila Darcey discusses and signs "Sketch by Sketch"

Join us on Sunday, February 13th at 2:00 pm as we welcome Sheila Darcey to the store to read from and sign Sketch by Sketch: A Creative Path to Emotional Healing and Transformation!

This event is free to attend and will be held in the courtyard at DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood. Masks are required to attend.

Sketch by Sketch will help anyone create a daily sketching practice that shifts them from negative thinking and spiraling emotions into the realm of possibility. Using art to connect the left brain and right brain, we can unlock our basic human need to create, express, and feel -- regardless of whether we think of ourselves as artistic.  As Darcey writes: "there is no need for training in the arts or for any artistic ‘talent.’  We are all creators."

Readers will learn how a daily drawing practice can help them:

•       Identify sources of anxiety and move beyond them.
•       Become more mindful of negative thoughts, and simply allow them to be.
•       Reveal and explore vulnerable parts of themselves without feeling exposed.
•       Deconstruct limiting patterns and beliefs
•       Tap into deeper reserves of compassion for themselves and others.

 With over 40 sketching prompts on a variety of topics from hope to stillness, along with questions for reflection and testimonials, SKETCH BY SKETCH is a unique guide to practice mindfulness, negotiate change and process experiences in a powerful new way. Step by step, sketch by sketch, readers will find peace, creativity, and healing on the page.
