Register for Find Your Power, Find Your Strength

We will bring awareness to this important part of us through guided meditation, and bring it to life giving it its own personality by applying art therapy. You will receive tools to access your power and force, and will be able to take your drawing to stick in your wallet, put on your fridge, or just to see what it looks like. It can be a helpful tool to remind us when we need to feel solid, strong, confident, and empowered. Come ready to learn and have fun tapping into your creative side.

Participants will be able to:

  • Recognize that they carry force and power in their bodies
  • Learn how to tune into their power and force
  • Stay mindful about their bodies
  • Identify strategies to develop easier ways to access their strengths in their daily lives, and especially in uncomfortable situations such as when communicating with supervisors, supervisees, students and co-worker
  • Learn how to bring up other people’s power and force in a somatic way
