With the growing understanding of the mind/body connection for greater
mental health, both yoga and art offer profound ways of connecting
people to their authentic source. Many types of clients respond to the
sense of groundedness that creativity and movement bring to the
experience of counseling.

In this experiential workshop, learn how to bring a mindfulness-based
practice to sessions with clients. Find out what helps clients find
their own sense of personal power in the therapeutic process. Develop
confidence in integrating art and yoga with clients by addressing a
range of clinical issues. Gain an understanding of the basics of the
chakra system for emotional well-being, the essentials of yoga therapy
and Jungian art therapy, as well as the use of mandala and color work
with clients.

Basic art materials will be provided. Please bring a yoga mat and any
"props" (such as a foam block, cushion, etc.) you may need. Wear
comfortable clothes.
