Art of Daily Living

“Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?” —T.S.Eliot

Have you gradually and imperceptibly allowed social media / technology to dominate your life?

Choosing for a Change

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" —Mary Oliver 

Do you wish you could make better choices for yourself? Increase your awareness of how you choose, and the many layers of thoughts and beliefs that drive your choices. Learn how to differentiate between your own truth and what you have adopted from others so you can experience more ease, joy and satisfaction in your life. 


All I Want For The Holidays... 

“Out of clutter find simplicity; from discord find harmony; in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” Einstein

Do you fall for the same habits or scenarios year after year? Do you do the same things expecting different results? This series will help you to learn how to better strategize the holiday season via a process that is effortless, authentic and playful so you can get what you really wish for. 


Life / Play: A Creative Approach To Therapy

“Play is the exultation of the possible.”  Martin Buber

BodyMind Mapping: Exploring Joy in Everyday Life

“It's what we do every day in the simplest way that counts.” Frederick Sommer

This mindfulness, movement and body awareness series will help you to manage your energy and focus your attention with a purpose, whatever that may be, and to become more conscious and aware of your choices. Exploring how your perceptions shift from moment to moment will allow you to experience more clarity, freedom and enjoyment in life.


The Movingbody: Self-Discovery Through Movement and Body Awareness

This movement-based Gestalt workshop will give you an opportunity to gain more awareness of how you carry your beliefs in your body and how these beliefs interfere with your expression in the moment. Enjoy greater freedom and spontaneity by following the flow of your experience as it unfolds, by being present and awake in each moment. Explore how movement mirrors emotion and language. No previous experience is necessary. Begin from where you are. Some of the themes addressed include the essence of mundane, unintentional and incongruent movement as the source of your creativity; the impulse behind movement as a way to a deeper understanding of body symptoms; felt body experience as a door to more authentic contact with yourself and others.
