Between The Holidays: From Darkness to Light
December 12 @ 7:00 am - 9:30 am EST
This is a powerful time of year, at the end of a very difficult calendar year, for exploring the interplay between darkness and light. In this special, online day retreat, Dr. Jamie Marich collaborates with two of her friends and fellow clinical artists to create rich opportunities for exploring and deepening contemplative practices.
Dr. Stephen Dansiger, a long-time Zen practitioner and clinical trauma specialist, will lead us through Buddhist-inspired practices for growth during difficult times. Dr. Kellie Kirksey will fuse her knowledge of complementary medicine, yoga, and African healing practices for a dynamic session on embodied drumming. Participants will also be able to interact in small groups with the three presenters and find inspiration in hearing their strategies for practice during difficult times with each other. Please join us for this day of refuge, retreat, and renewal from wherever you may be in the world.
The full-day retreat ticket includes the main program with the three presenters (9:00am-4:30pm EST), an early morning yoga-“meditation in motion” session with Dr. Jamie, and an evening Dancing Mindfulness experience co-taught by Dr. Jamie & Dr. Kellie
Special bundle pricing available if taking the continuing education course Trauma and the Twelve Steps: Clinical Keys for Enhancing Recovery Services (with Dr. Jamie Marich) on December 11, 2020.
