'I created ‘Art and Om’ which was born out of my own lived experience of self-care and self-analysis as well as working with a diversity of clients in varied circumstances. Art and Om merges the methodologies of Art Therapy, Expressive Arts and Yoga for a holistic, interdisciplinary experience. We also appreciate adventure and the beauty of nature, so we integrate Eco Therapy and walking meditations when possible. I hope you will join us for a fun and fluid workshop or a nurturing healing retreat in a stunning part of the world'.
