Out of the Shadows: An Expressive Art Therapy Workshop

Saturday, January 23rd
3 CEUs available

Join JSA and Dr. Victoria Shackelford on January 23rd for a workshop using techniques of active imagination, expressive art therapy, and meditation to explore the shadow-personality. Learn how to enlist the aid of archetypal images through doodle drawing to activate unconscious material from the psyche.

Dr. Shakelford will lead an Active Imagination process of meditation doodling using simple markers on paper to engage one’s inner shadow material. Participants will have an opportunity to share, discuss, and analyze their creations to further engage with the images. This process of inquiry is guided by the premise: “When a thing is truly seen it usually transforms.”
