Art Sozo is a unique take on the Sozo process, blending traditional Sozo inner healing tools with the freedom of art as a way to connect with God and heal wounds and lies. It is done in a workshop setting that is carefully woven to create a safe environment filled with intimacy, where God can powerfully move and touch people’s hearts, releasing creativity and brining lasting healing.
This manual has been written as a companion to the Basic Sozo Training Manual by Dawna De Silva and Teresa Liebscher and will build upon the Basic Sozo foundation and tools. It contains the techniques used for Art Sozo and instructions on how to successfully lead these workshops. Testimonies from participants are also included throughout the manual to show the ways that God has used this blend of art and Sozo to lead people into deeper levels of freedom and breakthrough.
Art Sozo is meant to be fun and inviting. It is not dependent upon artistic skill or prior art training-if someone can finger paint they can do an Art Sozo. However, because the process does connect people to their hearts and deep emotions; it is important that Art Sozo not be taken lightly. This is why I have included information about the “why” we do what we do during the workshops as well as the “how” it is done.
If you are hoping to lead an Art Sozo Workshop, my desire is that you be well-trained and connected to a Sozo ministry in your area. This ensures that participants will have additional ministry available to the if they touch deep wounds during the process.
If you are an individual using this manual to connect with God in a personal way and you find yourself in need of further ministry, please go to www.bethelsozo.org.uk to find a Sozo ministry near you.
My hope is that you will be inspired and enjoy connecting to God through this manual. I hope many of you will also lead Art Sozo Workshops and help bring God’s breakthrough to people’s lives in this way.
Blessings on your Art Sozo journey!
