ONLINE: Creative Ways of Coping During Crisis

Sept 11 (F) 10am-11am $30 (Pre-registration required.) Presented virtually via Zoom
This class will review varying creative means of self-care and expression through the visual arts from a spiritual and psychological perspective.  The current experiences of crisis (re: the pandemics of COVID-19 and racism) raise the importance of reconsidering how we take care of ourselves. 

Some of our tried and true self-care activities have been restricted due to the times we are living in and this course looks to the arts, art therapy, and the intersection of art, spirituality, and psychology as a way of fostering new ideas.

ONLINE: From Conflict to Collaboration

Aug 7 (F) 12-1:30pm $30 (Pre-registration required.) Presented virtually via Zoom
In this course we will explore the polarities of the personality and how they impact our professional and personal relationships.

Conflict or collaboration is a choice and it becomes easier to choose collaboration when people understand each other, their needs, and the purpose of their differences.

Conflict can occur when we become subject to an illusion of power. The illusion is usually that one pole of a polarity is better than the other:
  • One is right, the other wrong
  • One is good, the other bad
  • One is strong, the other weak

Once we understand the true purpose of a polarity, collaboration becomes inevitable. Carl Jung's polarities of the personality can provide us with valuable insight on the causes of conflict and how to transform conflict into collaboration.

This webinar will be a fun and interactive session where you will learn about:
  • Typical conflicts between the types
  • Purpose of each polarity in the personality
  • Mindset needed for collaboration
  • Fruits of successful collaboration

ONLINE: Reclaiming Creativity—Your Spark of the Sacred

Sept 11 (F) 12-1:30pm $35 (Pre-registration required.) Presented virtually via Zoom
“I’m not creative.” “I have two left feet.” “I can’t carry a tune in a paper bag.” “I can’t draw a straight line.”

If you’ve said any of these things about yourself, you’re invited to rethink your conclusions. All of us are creative beings and feel more joy, peace and contentment when we reconnect with this part of our being. 

Bring your voice, a pencil, some crayons or markers and some paper for this experiential workshop that will nudge all of us to reclaim the creativity we’ve misplaced, not developed or just haven’t made time for. No experience (except life) needed.
