LIFE AS ART STUDIO
What is the myth you live by?
Is it inspiring you on your journey or is it giving you grief?
My purpose is to help individuals, couples, families, groups and organizations explore their truth.
Trusting that the truth does indeed set us free....
LIFE NEED NOT BE A TRAGEDY!
ARTISTS & CREATIVE BLOCKS
INDIVIDUAL AND GROUPS
Writers, Musicians, Actors, Choreographers, Painters, Sculptors, creative humans, find what your protagonist is trying to tell you, where your next setting needs to be, an elusive dance sequence, some song lyric you can't hear....
Life becomes both exhilarating and grounding when we allow the muse to come visit with gifts unique to each of us.
Psychodramatic work, inspired and developed by J.L. & Zerka Moreno is based on
exploring issues and events of the past and/or concerns for the future in the "here and now". As we increase spontaneity we are open to more ways of solving problems and being our authentic selves.
This approach leads to profound insights and powerful healing.
There are times when relationships can benefit from a non- judgmental professional, someone who can bring a new perspective to the problems. An impartial clinician can be vital to help foster a healthier way to communicate and help partners figure out what is next. Polyamorous relationships welcomed.
Friends can be great.
But sometimes we need someone who is not our friend and whose sole purpose is to help us safely look into who we are and sort out how to cope with and ultimately triumph over our troubles.
Not one, alone, not two, but several people suffering together and apart can feel hopeless and overwhelming to each member.
Yet the potential for healing is at least as powerful as the crisis.
CAN ONLY MAKE A TEAM GREAT WHEN TRUST IS FOSTERED ALONG
Not talking about cliche'd icebreakers. Sociodrama, action methods that are not as personal as psychodramatic techniques are most effective in facilitating clearer and healthier communication and the ability to truly see another's point of view. The energy spent draining out the life of the group is now released in service to productive and inspired work.
