My Story, My Body, My Voice

Part 2: My Body

My Body is an art therapy workshop designed to guide participants to explore their body & mind connection through creativity and mindfulness. The aim of the workshop is for participants to gain confidence in sitting with the internal experiences and to learn how to care for them whenever they arise in a compassionate way. This is a beginner level workshop, so there is no expectation that participants must have any prior experience with visual arts, art therapy, or mindfulness!
