You will have plenty of space to spread out in to work with tempura paint, large format paper and broad brushes. The goal will be to enter into a mindful place and without many prompts from the facilitator begin to paint expressively. You will be helped to discover your safe space to dip into the well of personal and collective creativity.

There will be time to experience resonance with the shapes and colors that find their way onto your paper.  What do you see?  How does your painting affect you?  It has been shown that even 45 minutes of absorption with making art reduces stress levels.

Reference to Jungian concepts will be introduced.  Active imagination, the descent into our inner landscapes and an invitation to psyche to awaken to the symbolic attitude. All of this can be expected.


Sondra Geller,  MA, ATR-BC, LPC, is a Jungian Analyst, Board Certified Registered Art Therapist, and Licensed Professional Counselor.  She has a private practice in Washington, D.C., where she sees clients individually and in groups.  Her work reflects a synthesis of the principals of both Jungian Analytic Psychology and Art Therapy.  Sandy also teaches and presents experiential workshops focusing on the dynamics of making art in the presence of the analyst.  What happens in the silent space between client/artist and Jungian analyst/observer, and how does this dynamic facilitate the journey of individuation?
