ABOUT THE COURSE & RETREAT
Many seekers and people who serve others (e.g., therapists, teachers, artists) ask questions of this nature. In this day retreat and continuing education program, Dr. Jamie Marich and Irene Rodriguez will help you realize that you and the people you serve have been meditating all along! They incorporate numerous teachings from their respective yoga trainings within traditions that emphasize life as the path of engagement, in addition to their experiences with building the Dancing Mindfulness approach to expressive arts therapy. This program is practical in nature and provides you with numerous ideas for making meditation a lifestyle, which will allow you to adaptably transfer these ideas to the people that you serve in the most trauma-informed manner possible. In the true spirit of expressive arts, Jamie and Irene will guide you through movement, visual arts, music, writing, and visualization practices while challenging you to consider all of the areas of your daily life where meditation naturally happens.
Please see the course agenda for the full "menu" of the day! There are optional morning (yoga) and evening (Dancing Mindfulness) sessions that are included in the cost of the registration that are not eligible for CE. Attendance at the entire main training (9:00am-4:30pm) is required to receive CE.
