Word, Sound and Spirit: A Restorative Evening Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Focusing the breath and body in chant has been used since the beginning of time to lift the spirit and celebrate the divine. More recently, it has been proven to re-energize those who suffer clinical depression.  By combining chant with the healing aspects of creative writing and mindfulness practice, we access a powerful tool for therapy.  

Join us for a restorative evening of writing, chant, and mindfulness meditation. We will draw on the inspiration of poets like Rumi and Mary Oliver, as well as mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. Tap into your spiritual energy through meditative writing, and learn to write a chant in the tradition of Hildegard of Bingen, the twelfth century mystic, healer, and composer.  Use your chant for your own personal mantra or as a form of mindfulness in your clinical or teaching practice. A great way to end your first day at the Summit—or begin your Summit journey. No previous experience or talents are necessary. 

Not included with Summit or Symposium Registration

Tickets $30 online  •  $40 at door, pending availability

This evening workshop is also part of the multiple-session, 4-day Immersive Training: Archetypal Approaches in the Expressive Arts Therapies. Registration available separately.
