“Level 1 has been a life changing experience for me: it reconnected me with my body and showed me how I can tap into my body intelligence and creativity to heal past wounds and navigate current life challenges. By the end of the course I felt much more confident and resourceful in my life especially when confronted with difficult situations.
I really treasured the opportunity to experience the Tamalpa Life/Art Process® in the safety of the group and I learned a lot about myself through working with my peers and witnessing their journeys. The group and teachers were a great inspiration and I felt very supported while exploring difficult life themes.
Because of Covid-19 my training was moved online and at the beginning I was very reticent about this change, but the faculty thoughtfully adjusted the training to the online format and by the end I felt it was a real benefit to be able to explore the potential of the format applied to the Tamalpa Life/Art Process®.
In our current world where more than ever we socialise, work and study remotely, I felt very grateful that I had the opportunity to learn more deeply about the ways in which we express ourselves, create and communicate online.” Level 1 Graduate
