What is your go-to method for processing stress, anxiety or confusing feelings at work? Do you talk, meditate, exercise, read, color? In this workshop we will combine all of the above in a stress-reduction process called embodiment. Through listening, meditation, self-reflection and art, participants learn to release the feelings and thoughts that cause a variety of bodily ailments and help restore harmony to our mind-body-spirit self. Restoring harmony ensures that we bring the best of ourselves into the workplace.

Note: No prior experience is necessary. Have your own paint/colors and canvas/paper on hand. All other material will be provided.
