 Discover Your Body’s Wisdom for Wellbeing


Would you like more energy (more “pep” in your step)?

Do you want to feel healthier in your body, mind, and soul?

Would you like your life to have more ease and flow?

Join a group of like-hearted women as we learn powerful ways to listen to the wisdom of our bodies. Explore what you need  for your optimal well-being and also, learn life-enhancing techniques you can do on your own. The program is experiential and will utilize the transformative expressive arts including meditation, movement (dance), art making (a wide range of choices), and reflective writing. It is not necessary to be an artist to participate. With expressive arts we focus on the process, not the product. Creating art heals!

for Person-Centered Expressive Arts Institute Participants

Suzan’s Expressive Art workshop was so very healing to me. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2009 and managed to get it into remission with a great Rheumatologist, great self-care, exercise, eating properly, daily meditation, therapy, etc. but about 2 years ago despite all my hard work an ankle deformity which later turned into osteoarthritis caused my very active life-style to come to a halt. I spiraled into a depression and with it my RA came out of remission. I felt like I had failed. For those 2 years I was in a lot of pain, filled with shame and bitterness. At the beginning of January 2017 I took Suzan’s workshop on listening to the Body’s wisdom and literally that day the relentless pain in my feet left. I gave voice to my pain, I found compassion for my poor feet and I allowed the pain to just be, I honored it, I surrendered to it, I grieved it…and paradoxically it left. There was nothing else it wanted to say. My body just needed to be forgiven, loved and honored for the heroic life it had already given me…and that was that.

Thank you Suzan for giving my body, the pain a voice….and now it is quiet in my world….no pain.❤️

Creating Maori Mandala Soul Portraits

Participate in an ancient healing ritual of an indigenous tribe, the Maori of New Zealand. Maori Medicine Men began making these drawings around 950-1130 AD as sacred portraits of their work for the upcoming year. The late Dr. Angeles Arrien, a Cultural Anthropologist, lived with a Maori tribe and learned this diagnostic tool. She presented it at an Institute of Noetic Sciences Convention and gave permission for the dissemination of this information to promote wellness and peace for all. Journey into your unconscious and learn where to focus your energy during the following year for optimal health and well-being.
