FEATURED SESSION

Expressive Kavannah© at Sukkot: A Kabbalah-Inspired Mind/Body Approach to the Arts Therapies

2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

1601 Broadway (enter on 48th Street)


Sally Brucker, ATR-BC, CAGS, CLCC, LCSW

Edna Miron-Wapner, MA, CAGS


Expressive Kavannah© integrates expressive arts therapy with the concept of “Kavannah” (Hebrew for "focused intention") from the mystical Kabbalah. This intermodal approach to expressive arts therapy addresses the quest for meaning and spirituality in our lives. It follows the Jewish holiday cycle, which provides the wisdom of a holistic model that stresses interconnectedness. In the Jewish tradition, Sukkot is a festival of great joy; exploring its deeper meaning reveals its potential for transformation. This 3-hour workshop offers participants the tools to enhance self-awareness and gain perspective of their worlds through meditation, in an approach addressing mind, body and soul. In the relaxed state of meditation, the intuitive sense of images, colors, or visions facilitate flow. The transition into art-making, creative writing, and processing are experienced fluidly. As we explore, experiment, and adapt, our vantages on issues change. Processing together as a group can give participants ways to discover insights and understanding that can add meaning to their clients' lives and be taught in the context of treatment. Familiarity with Jewish religious traditions or philosophy is not required.


Eligible for 3.0 Clock/Credit Hours: NBCC, ATCB; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS, LCAT
