The transition that occurs before and after these can be revelatory and tumultuous. Working with and through these periods of time can be essential to moving forward with grace, understanding and ease. Creative exploration can assist in divining a path through these moments of life. Some of these pivotol moments include death of a loved one, birth, post-partum, a child graduating (empty nest syndrome), an ending of a relationship or any life change that signifies an end to one of being and a beginning of a new way.
