12 Oct 2024 | An Inner Journey with Clay | Day Workshop | In Person

This experiential, introductory workshop is for therapists who want to explore the possibilities and depths of working with clay in a clinical setting.

We will explore inner and outer communication with the substance as we dialogue with undefined matter and change it into form.

There will be time for observation and space for reflection on the clinical application of working with clay.

We will ask ourselves questions such as:

  • What is asked of me in order “to form” clay?
  • How do I communicate with clay?
  • How does it communicate with me?
  • What stimulates and induces the process of change from amorphous substance into defined form?
  • What are the influences of concavity and convexity?
  • What happens in therapy during moments of forming? Please bring a notebook in order to record your process.
    It is advisable to wear an overall or old clothes. Working with clay is grounding, messy, mirroring, fun, freeing and helps us to see the world differently!
