How do you tap into your deeper truth, bring awareness to the more complex and challenging parts of yourself, attend to the discomfort and disquiet such that you can do the transformative work that all of these parts are asking for? And why is it essential?
We are not separate from this earth- we are part of the skin of the earth and the work that we do on a personal level is part of the health of the whole. Your deep personal work sheds light on the and is part of the healing of all of the systems that you are part of, personally, culturally and ecologically.

In this workshop we will explore open ended and compassionate creative process inspired by the juncture of the body and psyche. We will visualize, move, create and share.

Wear clothes that are comfortable for moving and bring journals and art materials. I will provide clay and some markers and paper.

This workshop is a preview to the fuller series that I will be offering in the fall. It is perfect for therapists and coaches who want to re-energize their practices artists and creatives who want to find fodder to deepen their creative work body workers and alternative healers who love exploring diverse modalities activists and environmentalists who want visceral connection to their passions anyone who loves to see what happens when you bring the creative arts and the healing arts and psychological arts and environmental arts together!

Val Gilman is an artist, life coach and teacher. After years of teaching art at the college level, Val realized that her teaching needed to be on a deeper and more personal level. She has been a student and practitioner of Authentic Movement for more than a decade, and she brings that work together with her training in Psychosynthesis and her life long experience with the creative practice to create her business “Taproot Arts and Insight”. Her workshops offer a safe and rich environment for the profoundly healing work of tapping into your own creative unconscious and holding with compassion and love the places of growth and discovery that you find there.
