As we continue our re-entry into and re-engaging in our new world, new coping strategies are needed. A key component for recalibrating and rebounding is creativity. Creativity is at the heart of resilience.
This 4-week Creative Resilience workshop series will help participants discover and explore their internal capacity for resilience, through the power of the arts. This program will be facilitated by Susan Ksiezopolski. Susan is a HeartMath certified Building Personal Resilience Coach, and believes that “When we become more resilient it enables us to thrive, moving more confidently into dealing with life vs. being overwhelmed and drained by it. We tap into our capacity to bounce back when we open up and embrace our curiosity and our creativity.”
“The Creative Resilience, An Artful Way to Bounce” Program integrates multiple art forms such as visual arts, music, movement and photography while exploring the core components required to thrive during challenging times.
