Art is a means to enter, to play with, to dance with, to wrestle with anything that intrigues, delights, disturbs, or terrifies us.

This short series of drop-in classes offers a space for art-making as personal inquiry. Using journalling and art-making we open to “The Creative Source”, using a straightforward process developed by Pat B Allen ATR, and described in her books “Art Is a Way of Knowing” and “Art Is a Spiritual Path”

First Fridays: March 6, April 3, May 1, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Each session: $30, $25 OHCA members. $15 Materials fee due at time of class.
BIO: Julie McGuinness has been utilizing art as a transformative process since encountering the Tamalpa Life-Art Process in 2001. Julie was living and working at a Buddhist retreat center, and felt a pull toward a more embodied and creative expression of our intrinsic spirituality. Julie completed the Tamalpa training and subsequently an internship at the Institute of Health and Healing at Marin General Hospital, graduating from their certificate program in Integrative Medicine and Spirituality (Art & Imagery) in 2003. In 2012, Julie obtained an M.A. in East-West Psychology from CIIS where she became fascinated with Jungian psychology, and Alchemy in particular. She is a registered somatic movement educator with ISMETA and working toward registration as an expressive arts consultant and educator with IEATA.
