Healing Trauma Through Contemplative Mind Body Practice

Sunday, February 24, 2019, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Stress and traumatic memories are often stored in the body.  Art-based, creative interventions may allow you to access different levels of awareness and knowing that can cut through your defenses.  Also, learning to listen and tune into your body can help you cope with everyday life, chronic stress, and even trauma.


This workshop is for anyone interested in learning creative, body-based interventions to cope with stress and heal from trauma that can be practiced at home.  Meditation, guided imagery and relaxation, trauma-sensitive yoga with a chair, and self-acupressure as well as artistic expression will be explored.  Participants will also develop a basic understanding of the body’s stress and relaxation responses.


This workshop is for personal growth, is open to all, and does not earn professional CEUs.  No previous art or yoga experience is necessary to participate in this workshop.  People of all genders welcome.
