Work Through Your Stuff
Ready to sit and process what is happening for you? Take the opportunity to work through your stuff - once a month!
Once a month, join us for a by-donation, art-therapy group. Come into our beautiful space, and to a small circle, facilitated by two students of art therapy and counselling, and work on your "stuff." This means that, whatever is going on for you, and wherever you are at, you are welcome to come, sit with your experience, reflect, and process your thoughts and feelings with our art supplies. Most of the time will be quiet reflective time with gentle music, and the group starts with a brief intro and outro. 18+ All are welcome! One hour and 45minutes.
Suggested donation per person is $20.00.
