Creative Mini-Retreats with Adriana

Art Cures:   A Retreat for Healing

Sunday, September 20, 2020, 10am – 4pm

How do we respond and recover when life’s big challenges arrive? In today’s fast-paced world it’s easier than ever to push away our deeper experiences rather than face the reality of change, losing loved ones, addiction, illness, or global and climate crises head-on. Using Adriana’s creative and compassionate approach, this one day retreat will bring basic art techniques (drawing, collage, creative writing), somatic movement support, and intimate sharing to support a more resilient response to adversity.

In this one day retreat you will:

  • Have time to unplug and reflect on areas of your life that need attention
  • Connect with others in a non-judgmental creative environment
  • Expand your expression by tapping into your body and emotions
  • Experience the benefits of art through the lens of wellness and health
  • Leave with resources and action steps to expand your wellbeing

Cost: $110, Earlybird Fee (register by September 7th), $130, Regular Fee

Location: San Francisco Zen Center, 300 Page Street, Conference Room

A Nourishing Lunch by Bi-Rite Catering will be Provided

TESTIMONIALS:“Adriana conducts her workshop experiences with such compassion and wisdom. I appreciate how she embodies the presence of the creative process itself, as she guides us through it.  I felt sheltered to be there, and able to stretch forward in connecting with myself and others, with a deepening sense of trust.  – Casey Carney, Educator“In Adriana’s workshops I have generated personal resources during the fatal illness of a life long partner and the grief that followed. I have used them to access memories and to liberate body memories from muscles and bones. I have celebrated personal growth. Creating with others similarly engaged gives the sessions extra meaning. They are open to all; no experience necessary. Just come ready to trust her kind, clear and well planned facilitating. Adriana inspires me.” – Daniel Raskin, Retired Preschool Teacher“Adriana walks her talk with great integrity. Committed deeply to art-making as a therapeutic process, she embodies the courage, skillful attunement to self and other, and aesthetic sensibility necessary to facilitate transformation through creativity. I value her as a colleague and a leader in our field of expressive arts therapy and education.”-Elisabeth Osgood-Campbell, Dance/movement artist, and researcher at the Harvard Graduate School of Education
