WORKSHOPS

Creative Embodied Resourcing Thru Image Making

In this half-day online experiential workshop, participants will draw on creative expressive arts and body-oriented modalities to explore the interconnection of mind-body and elements of imagination in relation to embodied lived-experiencing.

Through conscious body movement, image-making, and creative writing, participants will call on a new kind of inward attention to explore feeling states, kinesthetic sensations, intuitions, and body awareness, toward meaningful new encounters with the self.

Learning objectives:

  • Apply creative expressive arts and dance movement practices to access emotional states, increase self-awareness, empathy, intuitive knowing, and embodied consciousness.
  • Observe, describe, and analyze images, symbols, metaphors, somatic states, psychological complexes, and other unconscious dynamics.
  • Practice and experiment with spontaneous drawing, expressive painting and movement to recognize the connection between mind and body
  • Observe kinesthetic sensations of the body and nonverbal behavior to recognize and explore feeling states and lived experiences from multidimensional perspectives.
This workshop is open to everyone. No art experience is needed.

You will need access to Zoom with reliable internet, comfortable clothing for movement/dance, art materials of your choice (oil pastels, markers, crayons, watercolor + paper), pen + journal for writing.
