    Expressive Therapy Groups (Dance Movement Therapy)

    Expressive therapy focuses on healing through a creative lens. Based on the inter-relationship of body, mind and emotion, it uses movement, art, writing and music to further the emotional, physical and spiritual integration of the individual. What is seeking expression in your cancer journey? This 12-week program will use the expressive arts and guided imagery as a means to enhance the healing process and build a safe and supportive healing community. It will provide relaxation, stress reduction and insight to its participants. The goals of the program are to enhance wellness and explore how to navigate through the complex emotions and concerns of the cancer journey with a sense of empowerment, physically and emotionally. It will be facilitated by Nandi Szabo, M.A., A.D.T.R, Expressive Arts Therapist and Registered Dance Movement Therapist.

    • Awaken to their own body in relationship to their health and personal awareness not just to a disease
