What is the Course About?
Somatic Art Therapy is a therapeutic approach that recognizes the intricate connection between the mind and body. It acknowledges that emotional experiences can manifest physically in the form of tension, pain, or discomfort. It also acknowledges that resources and healing can also be felt within the body through sensations, awareness and mindfulness. Using specific art directives, you are invited to explore and expand the internal resources within you. This class is taught with a Trauma-Informed lens to allow for people of all experiences to enjoy and is not a replacement for therapy.
Through Somatic Art Therapy, you learn to listen to your body's cues, sensations, and movements to access and process unresolved emotions. This class incorporates breathing techniques, mindfulness meditation and the creative process to support well-being and regulation of the nervous system from the inside out, giving participants lasting tools for transformation. If you are seeking a holistic approach to healing that encompasses both mind and body, Somatic therapy, when integrated with Art Therapy, offers a powerful avenue for exploring well-being.
Who is the Course For?
This online live workshop is for anyone curious about how working with the body, art and mind can support well-being. Although not intended as a replacement for therapy, participants will leave with a deeper understanding of Self and practical tools to support them afterwards. No art experience is necessary to take this course.
Why is this Course Important?
Over time, experiences become stored within our bodies. Without proper supportive release techniques, these can accumulate into a variety of illnesses, stresses, and other issues affecting our mental and emotional health. Although this introductory course is not intended as a replacement for therapy, the tools learned are meant to support you beyond our time together.
You will leave this online workshop with practical tools that will support day to day life and your own personal well-being, leaving you feeling uplifted, inspired and hopeful.

The How of Neuroplasticity with Art & Meditation, Part 2: Supporting Cognition as We Age
For those who may have missed this webinar. Enjoy!
April 30th at Studio Sat Nam 17th Ave Calgary
Sacred Geometry can be described as the architecture of the universe, the fingerprints of creation. The patterns used in Sacred Geometry are used as a template for all material things. Patterns are the building blocks of everything in life. Everything can be reduced to a geometric structure: plants, stars, planets, music, cells, people, DNA, animals, solar systems, atoms, you name it, anything in the universe can be measured on a geometric scale!
It is often said that Kundalini Yoga expresses a science of angles and triangles, forming shapes with the body to stimulate various meridians and energy centres for optimal mental and physical health; a kind of geometry for the human self. Every angle that is created within your body through asana has a specific effect! In this workshop, we will explore these as well as the benefits of creating art using the magical science of Sacred Geometry.
Join us as we dive into this exploration and how we can use the power of this modality in our life! We will be moving our bodies with yoga, quieting our minds with meditation and exploring and organizing our inner emotions by learning how to create the Flower of Life. You do not need to be an artist or have any artistic skills to participate.
