What are Groups?

H.O.P.E. offers group experiences in various therapeutic art modalities, including Music Therapy, Supportive Music Counseling, Art Therapy, Movement, Mixed Mediums, Holistic Enrichment and so much more. If dis-ease and dis-order are sustained in dis-connection, the solutions have to include connection. Groups offer the opportunity to learn by watching, listening, hearing things in a different way. In H.O.P.E. groups, you will be held accountable in a loving way and given the chance to explore the forward, in concert with others also on healing paths. We invite you to deepen your wellness journey by engaging with others. When you attend a group you are offering service to others; you never know who needs to hear what you have to share. Be a part of the collective, Bring Hope.

May is Mental Health Awareness month and while we celebrate mental health everyday it is nice to have a special time specifically dedicated to it. In this month’s Mindful Movement workshop, we are going to get in touch with what our body needs and how that connects and impacts our mental health. We will honor the space, the time, and the energy that our bodies are craving in a creative, playful way, and as always, communal way. You don’t need a diagnosis to have mental health struggles. If you have a brain then you have mental health! So, come join us on Saturday, May 15th at 11am and let’s dance and celebrate our mental health victories!   What is Mindful Movement? Give your mind a break and let your body do the talking. Mindful Movement invites clients to take time to honor their thoughts and feelings through expressive movement. You do not need any prior dance experience or training to attend this group. Mindful Movement explores our own authentic movement styles and encourages you to tap into your creative voice. In this group, you will learn guided exercises that help mobilize your natural energy source, increase positive experiences in the body, and improve your self-esteem.

Zen Art Workshop: Treasure Box, w/ Etta Canady, ATR Fri. May 14th 7-8:30PM

There is HOPE in self-awareness and knowledge truly is power! This workshop will focus on identifying strengths, characteristics, and resources that we have access to as well as the ones that exist within ourselves. With that information, each workshop participant will create a box that celebrates the treasures of physical, emotional, and mental health awareness. Once we begin to understand our feelings, behaviors, and life challenges, we can move forward with the opportunity and freedom to embrace change and growth. What is Art Therapy? The official definition from the American Art Therapy Association: “Art therapy is the therapeutic use of art making, within a professional relationship, by people who experience illness, trauma or challenges in living, and by people who seek personal development. Through creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes, people can increase awareness of self and others, cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences, enhance cognitive abilities, and enjoy the life-affirming pleasures of making art.” Simply put… Art Therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Trauma Yoga

Trauma lives in the body. Trauma informed yoga seeks to help with release and reinstatement of calm in the body using movement, guided visualization, breath work, grounding exercises and an approach that draws on safe space creation. What makes this different than a typical yoga experience? There is no music and the instructor will not make adjustments to the student’s body. Instead, there is a consistent verbal connection and suggestions to rebuild relationships to different parts of the body using movement, breathing, etc. at a slow, contained pace. The student is always in control allowing them to build a sense of security. There are no inversions or balancing poses, everything is designed to allow for a somatic experience that is affirming and in no way triggering. There is no “right” way to engage, it is up to the student individually and what their body says is right for them.  The goal, if there is one, is to help the student stay in their body and reengage with themselves in a manner that builds a new experience. A new mind-body experience can be healing in itself. This offering is recommended for anyone who identifies as recovering from trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, grief or just a challenging period in life. Patrick Alan Murad is trained in a wide variety of yoga styles, including Power Vinyasa and Acrobatic Yoga. He specializes in, and has a special passion for Trauma Recovery Yoga. Patrick has completed the 200 hour certification in Holistic Yoga Flow as well as a 20 hour certification in Trauma Recovery Yoga. H.O.P.E. is pleased to welcome Patrick to our team of healers and supportive helpers.
