Event description
Invigorate the artist within in a two-day creativity retreat that brings an embodied approach to creative expression.

About this Event

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS RETREAT:

  • An invitation into your body and voice as a vehicle towards greater self-expression
  • Insight into creative blocks, how to get past them and how to continue the path towards creative freedom
  • Initiation into your dream world and its potential for self-understanding

Both days will begin with a voice and movement workshop where participants will be invited to be in their bodies consciously, move, hum and sing, using their imagination and felt experience.

On Saturday afternoon, a seminar will be given on finding one’s Inner Voice and facing the Inner Critic/Judge - Performance Anxiety and Perfectionism.

We will discuss creative blocks that can affect artists and their performance and explore the symbols beneath the blocks.

On Sunday afternoon, we will present a Dream seminar exploring Jungian psychology, the language of dreams and how these can give insight into self-expression. Some prominent themes in dreams will be introduced, such as a dream of a car out of gas, a car where the dreamer is in the backseat; a dream of going in for performance or exam and being naked or not knowing the steps.

Day/time: Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25, 2019, 10am - 4:30 pm both days

YOUR RETREAT LEADERS:

Stacey Jenkins, Registered Psychotherapist and certified Jungian Analyst

Stacey is a Toronto Jungian Analyst who assists clients in restoring life to dry places. This is done through work with their dreams, which arise from the living waters of the psyche.

Stacey’s areas of interest and experience include addiction, loss of meaning, depression, creativity, spiritual growth, questions of life path and self-exploration.

She is versed in the creative process and the realization of creative vision through two decades of professional experience in television and film production. Stacey incorporates experience with the Tarot, astrology, the I Ching and other divinatory tools in her practice, inviting synchronicity and the mysterious domain of intuition into the therapeutic process.

Elisabeth Pomès, Registered Psychotherapist and certified Jungian Analyst

Elisabeth first realized her love for psychology and psychotherapy when she started working with artists. Starting her career as a singer and later a voice teacher, she came in contact with artists who experienced debilitating stage fright and at times were blocked in their creativity. She started developing Performance Without Fear, a course in which she used her background in Yoga, Qigong, Meditation and Psychotherapy to help artists release tension both physically and psychologically.

At the same time, she discovered the works and psychology of Carl Jung and began her training in Analytical Psychology at the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts. She became a certified Jungian Analyst in 2009. Elisabeth has a private practice in Toronto.

David Pressault, Registered Psychotherapist and certified Jungian Analyst

David is a Jungian analyst with a strong background in the Arts. He developed a relationship to the unconscious through the art form of contemporary dance. He was a professional dancer and choreographer for 20 years and he still creates dances when time permits. In 2005, he retired from the stage as a dancer and began a Masters in dance at UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal). The following year, he began his training in Analytical Psychology at the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts and graduated in February 2012. Since then he has worked in private practice and offered supervision.
