The world has gone through massive changes since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Other than the visible and tangible ways in which they have affected us and our lives, these external changes have caused us all to go through internal changes as well. You may suddenly find that your interests, priorities, values, or ways of coping have changed. Internal changes play out in all of our relationships – personal, professional and with ourselves – and that can be challenging to deal with.


In this workshop we will use the Expressive Arts Therapies - particularly narrative and psychodrama - to explore, understand, process and integrate the changes we have undergone individually, to gain tools and insight for navigating our relationships and stressful transitions currently and into the future.

May 20th from 5:30pm-7:30pm PDT &

Saturday, May 21st from 10:30am-2:00pm PDT

: Zoom (virtual)


*$100 - Limited spots for those in financial need available.

Who should attend
: Anyone age 18+ who’d like to process changes inside, to better navigate life outside.
