Art therapy group for busy moms and caregivers – what to expect?

It’s no secret that a happy mom can make everyone around her happier too. This is why we are going to take some time to take care of ourselves.
This is an Art based Stress Reduction therapeutic group – for busy moms who survived the school year and need some inspiration and relaxation to kick off the summer. No artistic experience required.
During the 5 Friday mornings, you will be able to:
– Get support chatting with likeminded peers
– Dance, play and have fun
– Breathe, relax and practice that “corpse posture”…
… while focusing each day on very specific things such as:
May 19: Take a look at where you are in different parts of your current life – Create your own Mandala.
May 26: Explore your resources and needs – Craft “Seeds for change” and Eco-printing project.
June 2: Connect with many of your roles – Make masks.
June 9: Practice Acceptance – Play, move and make Self-portrait with wood pieces.
June 16: Dream bravely – visualise your place of peace and power using Collage techniques.

New Dance and Expressive Arts therapeutic group in Richmond Hill


NEW!  Art based Stress Reduction day time group in Richmond Hill starts in March 9th!

This is the Introduction 1.5 hour workshop for someone who are:

  • feeling sometimes overwhelmed with busyness of life
  • looking for stress release and artistic expression
  • curious about use of Arts as a tool for Wellbeing
  • have some or none of artistic or dance experience

What to expect from the workshop?  We are going to chat over a cup of tea, talking about our needs and resources. Then we may do a little warm-up, getting more comfortable with our bodies and after that we will definitely have an opportunity to dance like nobody is watching, releasing everything that need to be released. Afterwards, we  will make a  Community Arts project, using one of various art modalities.  And yes, it is going to be the International Women’s Day Celebration! So, bring your mug and get ready for it!

Registration is open until March 7th.
