mentor to guide you or your creative group toward the completion of a creative process based on Somatic Grief Practice

Here are examples of Somatic Grief Practice Creative Processes that I’ve mentored:

The Annual Program in Artivism & Somatic Learning - A quick look at an interactive performance created by Katya Ansky & Liza Futerman.

Liza is a heart-centred soul and a true artist

I have had the pleasure of facilitating a grief circle with Liza, in which she created a container of safety, empathy, and creative expression for our participants. We have also collaborated on her visual story "The Nine-Month Snail Dance" in which she shared her deeply personal story about grief, acceptance, and healing.
