Kate Leppard

kate-leppard.jpgThis workshop will invite a deeper integration of somatic, mindfulness, and art therapy approaches in your personal and professional practices. Following a review and discussion of theories and practices of art therapy as a mindful, somatic process, a range of experiential activities will be introduced to invite more intentional integration of somatic, mindfulness, and art therapy approaches. The workshop will include time for reflection about activities, witnessing each other’s art and discussing experiences and possible application in practice. This workshop is introductory and is not intended as training in somatic, mindfulness or art therapies. Resources for further learning and links to training organizations will be provided.
