Information about workshops and retreats
Fantasy is the archetypal activity of the psyche…it is never merely mentally subjective, but is always being enacted and embodied.
— Carl Jung
 

WORKSHOPS and Retreats

Workshops and retreats for adults and youth are offered that draw on the power of the body and creativity for expression, insight and transformation.  All workshops and retreats utilize body-centred approaches such as breath, sound, intentional focus to witness our present experience.  Embodied movement cultivates an experience of feeling alive in one's body.  As the body becomes the central guide in telling our stories, we open up to imaginative possibilities through the creative arts.

The workshops and retreats acknowledge our body and creativity as essential aspects in moving towards wholeness.  We all strive for inner peace, meaning and life purpose, ongoing psychological growth and new experiences.

Workshops provide dynamic experience in a safe and nurturing environment with the aim to honour individual abilities, potential and strengths.  

Expressive Movement, somatic practices and creative arts are powerful tools to use for:

  • trauma
  • addictions
  • eating disorders
  • chronic pain
  • mood, anxiety, depression
  • life changes and transitions
  • grief and loss
  • creative blocks

Workshops and therapeutic intensive retreats are offered multiple times a year.  Accommodation and travel is affordable and easily arranged.

Workshops and retreat can be specifically developed and facilitated in any location in Canada and the United States.  Contact me for fees and further information.

Rather than an ever increasing diaspora of diagnosis (and drugs) in a utopian search for (a deadening) ‘normality’, wouldn’t it be a more constructive activity to focus on how we deal with the endless problems that present themselves to human existence, without labels but in thoughtful and humane ways, that is, in ways that respectfully address the complexities inherent to living a life? Rather than objective truth, what matters, according to Gilles Deleuze, what matters is to be able to have noble and fraternal ways of engaging with the ailing earth so as to revitalize not only ourselves but also the whole ecology in which we exist.
