Becoming awake to the world around us requires we are awake to the world within us. Trauma takes us away from the present moment in order to survive. This Art Therapy group is all about exploring how our bodies can move from surviving to thriving. Each week we will explore a different one of our senses alongside a creative process. By focusing on one sense (touch, smell, taste, movement, sound, and sight) we bring our body and mind into the present moment and bring more attention and awareness to how we are experiencing things that bring joy, play, creativity, and rest. Our senses are a potent way to engage our nervous system and pair well with art making. Come as you are and deepen what it feels like to ground with your senses.
