Led by: Joy Radish
From May 23, 2018 at 7:30 pm until July 18, 2018 at 9:00 pm at Gowanus
This is an ongoing therapy group for women looking for support, growth, and healing. Together, we will dive into an exploration of the 4 aims of life, the purushartas, in an 8 week process. The safety we create together will serve as a foundation for unlimited exploration and self-transformation. The group will focus on each pillar for 2 weeks at a time. Within this holistic framework, we will cover subjects such as the complexity of identity, life purpose, trauma & creativity, relationships & sexuality, mental health issues/concerns, work/gender in the workplace and spirituality. We will use experiential techniques derived from drama therapy to aid in processing the experience. This group is suitable for all female identified persons seeking growth, support and change.
