You are the Universe in ecstatic motion. - Rumi

We specialize in courses that focus on inter-modal, interdisciplinary, intuitive, therapeutic arts encompassing visual art, dance, music, writing, film and performance.  We combine these arts practices for personal expression and healing.  Using a trauma sensitive mindfulness approach we educate you not only on how to facilitate groups and individual coaching in therapeutic, creative and expressive arts, but also in mindfulness based techniques and trauma informed ways of being.  We also offer school based and teacher programs in arts based trauma informed and trauma sensitive classrooms, self care/resiliency and mindful practices in the classroom.  We'll teach you essentials to facilitation, core foundations in trauma informed mindfulness and guide you through learning about specific populations and constructs of therapeutic arts in healing.

We also offer a certificate in Mindfulness Based Art History with courses that examine artists who have embraced spirituality and mindfulness practices as apart of their art making. 

Individual Therapeutic Art Life Coaching, Behavior Therapy, Substance Abuse Prevention workshops, Trauma Basics and Trauma Informed classroom workshops, Intuitive and Expressive Arts Workshops, Integrated Behavioral Medicine Consults, Therapeutic Art Groups and Self Care/Resiliency Plan development are available by appointment.
