Resilient Landscape of the Body

Resilient Landscape of the Body on November 18, 2017 in Kentfield, CA : Participants will be introduced to the dynamics of trauma through the Tamalpa Life/Art Process. This workshop will address somatic responses to stress, use drawing and movement to explore triggers, and open up possibilities for resilient responses. Therapists, coaches, and educators are encouraged to attend, as well those interested in utilizing the body and creative resources towards healing. Through the lens of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process, expressive arts therapy and complementary models, Adriana will present tools to work with people who have experienced trauma on a variety of levels.
