Healing from the Heart: Ancient Practices for Modern Wounds


Credit Available - See CEs/Contact Hours tab below.




Description

The long-term impact of trauma, stress, oppression, and addiction are more than just mental health issues, they are at the root of almost eighty percent of all chronic illnesses in our society. The collective and individual wounds from these illnesses reveal the need for healing programs that speak to the mind, body and spirit. This workshop is one stop on your path towards blending art, science, connection, and love, into the healing process. We will explore the current research on the healing energy of the group, the impact of ritual on the brain, and the medicinal qualities of prayer. Together, we will experience the ancient practices of imagery, intention, prayer, chanting, and movement. Our day together will result in you creating new ways of connecting with your community, clients, and your own heart. Most importantly, it will serve as a gentle reminder to remain committed to your sacred path of service.

Learning objectives:

  1. Explain the connection between trauma, stress, oppression, and chronic illness.
  2. Examine the role of integrative mental health in addressing physiological and psychological symptoms.
  3. Apply three writing and drawing practices in a clinical setting to heal the effects of stress.
  4. Understand the impact of ritual on physiology and healing.
  5. Use music and movement in sessions to get around emotional blocks without spoken words.
  6. Assess how to help clients access inner strengths through creative processes that tap into the imagination.
  7. Experience guided imagery practices to use with clients in therapy and in community settings to help heal the body and heighten experiences of personal growth.
