I need more experiences like this that provide reflection time and creativity and sharing aging wisdom.” “This was a unique way to approach what aging can mean. This allowed me to explore and discover the concept of aging in a way that left me with excitement for the future. Opened my mind to possibilities to live a whole enriched life. One of the most valuable workshops I have attended. The facilitator established an atmosphere of trust and sharing, encouraged in-depth sharing and acceptance.” “I valued the space given for silence and inner work. The sharing sessions were enriching. Cynthia did an excellent job facilitating individual work. The most valuable part for me was an opportunity for creative expression. Reflecting on the images in the power point fed my imagination. I love the images of the eight different gates as ways of looking at aspects and challenges of aging.” “Very profound and just what I needed.” Topics Covered overview of the eight gates of initiation as markers on the path introduction to art making: Layers, collage, clay, paints, natural materials reflecting on art making with poetry and creative writing time for sharing Presenter Bio Cynthia Brown, B.ED, AT, DKATI, is a professional art therapist and educator co-creating relationships in the fields of art, expressive therapies and education.
