Expressive Arts Workshops

  • Process over product: it’s about the experience of creating, not the end-result.
  • No agenda: no preconceived notion of what you’ll create.

What is expressive arts all about?

Embracing curiosity: Curiosity is the opposite of judgment (of self and others).

Embracing exploration: Approach the process with a “what if” mindset, allowing yourself to explore new possibilities and ideas without fear of failure.

Embracing ambiguity: It’s about being open to the unexpected and unknown.

Being present: Be fully present in the moment, embracing the here and now with mindfulness and awareness.

Integration into life: Just as yoga teaches you to find comfort in discomfort on the mat, expressive arts help you carry these practices “off the mat” and into your everyday life. They teach you to navigate challenges with resilience, embrace uncertainty with grace, and approach life with curiosity and creativity.

Engaging in expressive arts is more than just creating art, it’s a practice in:

Participant feedback


With the aid of your comforting and encouraging words, the inspiring music, and a supportive group of women, I was able to rise above my fear, and really let myself go. I was able to allow the artwork to come from my body, as opposed to my mind. A first for me! The end result was a crazy visual of nonsense, but I felt so triumphant!! It was liberating, and a huge confidence builder. 


I was most surprised that I had such clarity in my observations and that I had an emotional response to sharing my thoughts out loud. I felt safe in doing so and the retreat was a perfect catalyst for me to seriously explore my authenticity in this special phase of life. The main workshop was (also) valuable in exposing some areas of needed growth. 


Just wanted to say thank you so much for leading such a lovely workshop on Saturday. It really changed my life for the better and helped awaken some parts of me that were more or less dormant. I am so grateful to you.


I needed some generous space to just be (and not be the teacher/facilitator). The retreat met those needs in such an impactful way. I felt held, supported, and encouraged.


I came with an open mind and was surprised by how much letting go is fun and difficult at the same time. I loved everything about the retreat.
