What is Awakening Expressive Arts?

AEA was created by Shlomit Oren BS, PCEAF and is based on Person-Centered Expressive Arts Therapy as created by Natalie Rogers PhD and her father Carl Rogers PhD. AEA is a series of group workshops designed for personal growth, creativity and mental health.  A creative experience is often times enlightening. An enlightening experience is often times a creative process. Therefore, the tools we use during an AEA session may include meditation, movement, dance, writing, visual arts, singing, music, drama and more. Anyone can practice AEA, no artistic experience is required. Shlomit will help you to awaken and integrate all aspects of self—the body, mind, emotions and spirit with her healing expertise and uplifting energy. Awakening Expressive Arts will help you rediscover your innate creativity and nourish your soul.
