Many seekers and people who serve others (e.g., therapists, teachers, artists) ask questions of this nature. In this day retreat and continuing education program, Dr. Jamie Marich and Irene Rodriguez will help you realize that you and the people you serve have been meditating all along! They incorporate numerous teachings from their respective yoga trainings within traditions that emphasize life as the path of engagement, in addition to their experiences with building the Dancing Mindfulness approach to expressive arts therapy. This program is practical in nature and provides you with numerous ideas for making meditation a lifestyle, which will allow you to adaptably transfer these ideas to the people that you serve in the most trauma-informed manner possible. In the true spirit of expressive arts, Jamie and Irene will guide you through movement, visual arts, music, writing, and visualization practices while challenging you to consider all of the areas of your daily life where meditation naturally happens.
There are optional morning (yoga) and evening (Dancing Mindfulness) sessions that are included in the cost of the registration that are not eligible for CE. Attendance at the entire main training (9:00am-4:30pm) is required to receive CE.
After this course, participants will be able to:
1) To define meditation from a variety of perspectives and traditions
2) To translate this enhanced understanding of meditation in a manner that will help you best orient your clients and students to mindfulness-informed practice
3) To apply (and appropriately modify) at least three practices covered in the workshop to one’s daily routine and in clinical work
4) To discuss the meaning of life as meditation and explain how this approach to meditation is optimal in trauma-informing care
5) To evaluate which mindfulness-informed practices may be the best fit for individual presentations
6) To examine the interplay between mindfulness-informed interventions, expressive arts therapy interventions, and other trauma-focused systems of care
