Presented by: Ann Filemyr, Ph.D. & Deborah Schroder, M.S., ATR-BC, LPATDates/Times: Saturday & Sunday, 10/2 & 10/3, 9am-6pm MSTDESCRIPTION:This course utilizes techniques in both art therapy and ecotherapy to address the rupture between human and other than-human life. The subsequent intergenerational trauma is often carried unconsciously as an inarticulate but deep longing to fully connect and belong. The kinship relationships we are seeking to heal include our relationships with the other-than human life we depend upon, including air, fire, water, earth and the animals, plants, stones, stars, that form our sense of place and family. We will utilize nature, mindfulness, and art-making processes to access messages, emotions, memories, and beliefs about who we are, and where we come from as a strategy of healing.LOCATION: SWC Campus - Must be vaccinated to attend.16 CECsPresenter Bios:Ann Filemyr, Ph.D., is the Director of the Ecotherapy Certificate Program.
