Art Therapy Continuing Education Opportunities – Creative and Spiritual Renewal

August 31, 2011

Creative and Spiritual Renewal for Social Service Professionals

Much More Than Just Another Burnout Prevention Workshop!

8 sessions, one per month, second Thursdays  – next session starting Oct. 13 2011,
 6:30 – 8:30pm

$400, providing 16 CEU’s


An 8 session community studio workshop that meets monthly and teaches deep replenishment of self through life-long creative practices.

Through experiencing – within community – the soul-centric processes of creativity, we continuously heal ourselves and so more maturely serve others and the world. Participants will discuss and explore experientially the interrelated core concepts within depth psychology, existential philosophy, art therapy, mindfulness meditation, and creation spirituality and will practice hands-on art meditations that lead to a deeper knowledge of the creative process. Each month, participants will receive a guided meditation CD focusing on one of the core aspects of the creative process.  Between meetings, participants will receive a mid-month email contact to support and enhance personal creative contemplation and self-renewal.  The foundation and focus of this program is to create community in which we nourish our own creative soul life so that we can give the same support and nourishment to those who come to us for healing.

Two additional ways to participate in this course:

For those unable to attend due to travel and time limitations, a home-study, on-line community version of this course is available.

And, if there is sufficient interest, a second session of this course can be organized to meet in the studio monthly on Wednesday’s from 1-3pm.

The Indiana Behavioral Health and Human Services Licensing Board has approved this organization to provide Category 1 Continuing Education for LSW, LCSW, LMFT, and LMHC. However licensees must judge the programs relevance to their professional practice.
