Check-In Soup for Your Soul
Check-in Soup Groups are not exactly group therapy, but definitely therapeutic! They offer a creative and interactive weekly group therapy process where you will feel heard and seen in your day-to-day struggles and challenges, experience relief, find understanding, and feel empowered to be the best “You” that you know yourself to be. It’s a great place to check-in and unload that “baggage” you’ve been carrying around all week!
These dynamic groups, each designed with a unique audience in mind, will utilize creative arts therapies (especially drama therapy, psychodrama, and movement therapy), and principles adapted from Co-counseling, Authentic Movement and compassionate community building.
Join us for one or more of these supportive weekly gatherings. Once a group has a minimum of six participants, we will begin meeting. Please contact me to register.
Check-in Soup for Adult Men & Women
Specifically intended for men and women alike, this group provides you with a place to unpack the challenges from your stressful job, work on relationship issues, and grieve the loss of a loved one or something important to you. In this group, you will have space to discharge pent up emotions in a creative way so that you leave with a clear head and open heart.
Dates and times of this group will be announced once at least six adults (over 18 y/o) are enrolled. In this group, we will try our best to have a balance of men and women. Meetings will last for 2 ½ hours each week.
Check-in Soup for Men
This is a men’s only group. Whether you are a man with things on your mind that you want to talk about, or if you are a man who wants to focus on men-specific issues, this group is for you. From anger management and cultivating emotional vocabulary, to dealing with relationship issue and the various culturally ingrained myths of male power that affect and traumatize men, you’ll find relief and consolation here.
Dates and times of this group will be announced once at least men (over 18 y/o) are enrolled. This group is open to gay and straight men alike. Meetings will last for 2 ½ hours each week.
Check-in Soup for Cultural Creatives
Cultural Creatives are the “carrier” population of the possibility of an emerging wisdom culture as an antidote to the rampant fear, cynicism, and despair of our age. However, awakening to the challenges of our times, for many, also means enduring a deep sense of aloneness, misunderstanding, invisibility, and a spectrum of painful emotional experience. While it’s uncertain what can be done to shift the tides of our turning times, being part of a supportive community that “gets” you and understands your pain is imperative for maintaining mental, emotional and spiritual health and resilience.
In this group, we will utilize creative arts therapies (especially drama therapy, psychodrama, and movement), adaptations of the work of Joanna Macy (Work that Reconnects, and Council of All Beings), and principles adapted from Co-counseling and Authentic Movement in order to experience relief, find understanding, and feel empowered to contribute to beautifying our world, even in the face of the circumstances.
Dates and times of this group will be announced once at least adult men and women (over 18 y/o) are enrolled. Meetings will last for 2 ½ hours each week.
