Bloom: An Art-Based Supervision Series

Mondays, May 20, 27, June 3, 10, 2024
2:30-4:30 PM EST

Bloom is an innovative art-based supervision series that cultivates professional growth and nurtures creative practice within a supportive community.  
We invite you to a unique gathering space for therapists to enhance their therapeutic skills, foster self-awareness, and cultivate a more holistic approach to their role.  
This series is centered around igniting the inner creator and embracing the fiery energy of creativity within us.  
Through immersive arts-based explorations and community connection, participants are encouraged to tap into their innate creative potential, fueling inspiration and innovation in their professional practice.    

The series unfolds in four parts:
1.     Setting an Intention: Here, we immerse ourselves in the nurturing soil of our intuition, germinating projects and ideas while allowing us time to slowly distill the details. It's a time for introspection, dreaming, imagining, and setting the stage for new creative steps in our professional and personal life.

2.     Feeding the Energy Source: In this session, we are tempting together to connect with the vibrant energy of life, embracing the unknown while defining our framework. We connect with our enthusiasm and creative power, fueling/re-fueling our work with passion, purpose, and trust.

3.     Birth and Growth: As our ideas take root and flourish, we learn to trust the process and honour our intuition. What once felt daunting becomes surmountable as we follow the natural rhythm of growth guided by the warm motivating energy of the sun.

4.     Laughter and Celebration: In the final section, we revel in the joy of creation, releasing tensions and embracing moments of spontaneity and fun. Together, we laugh, celebrate, and share in the collective magic of creativity, fostering a sense of community and connection.

This is a live event and places are limited.

The discounted price will be available until May 17, at 11:59 PM EST.

The sessions are confidential. They will be recorded and offered on the platform for the registrants only. In case that you are missing one session, you can watch it on your account.

This workshop series will count as group supervision hours for art therapists in process of becoming registered art therapists with Canadian Art Therapy Association (RCAT) and American Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATR), and for CPD. Not counting for CRPO supervision.
A certificate of completion of 8 hours of supervision will be handed to the participants needing it. For any inquiry, please reach to us at:
