hearthandsDeborah has followed her calling to share Touch Drawing, presenting workshops at numerous conferences and educational institutions. She has a unique way of holding space for people to dive deep into their souls. Integrating expressive arts modalities such as movement, group vocalizing, and writing, she crafts each workshop as a transformative experience. Deborah generates a sacred sound field during drawing sessions with her voice, drum, chimes and crystal bowls.  More about Deborah’s workshops
