The instructor will then guide the participants to bring out thoughts, images, sensations, emotions, reflections from this observation and will then invite everyone to share in the group what emerged from the painting and facilitate a generative conversation which will be enriching for everyone. The group, within a safe space of dialogue, will reflect on the effect of the painting on each individual inner state and will share possible focus of attention for the future.
