It provides educators, medical caregivers, counselors, therapists, artists, community organizers and those in related fields with experiential training in the expressive and creative arts.
Participants learn to facilitate transformation, self- discovery and the evolution of consciousness when working with groups or individuals. The programs use a holistic, multi-modal approach to the Expressive and Creative arts, concentrating specifically with an integration of visual imagery with movement, sound, and expressive writing.
