Art as Meditation:Original Healing: Spirit into Form: The Experience of Clay as Spiritual Practice - #61034

Instructor: Kat McIver, Ph.D., R.E.A.T        

Faculty Bio:  Kat is an artist, spiritual guide, and expressive arts therapist/educator.  She has a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, with certificates in Creative Expression and Spiritual Guidance and a Masters in Spirituality from the Institute of Culture and Creation Spirituality (when it was at Holy Names College).  She is a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist and has a private practice offering individual sessions and workshops, in Aptos, California.  She is currently a faculty mentor in the ITP Global Program and this year is also teaching at ITP, California State University, Chico, and Naropa.  She has exhibited her clay sculptures in New Zealand, Minnesota, Palo Alto, and Santa Cruz.   Kat is passionate about Art and Spirit and loves to explore the creative body with others in a shared sacred space.

Course Description:  This course will explore the relationship between body and spirit using movement, meditation, and clay.  As spiritual practice these modalities call forth the intuitive, subtle body’s voice through the imaginal language of the soul.   In a gentle space of compassion and nuturance, we will share our soul’s journey - both the light and shadow - bringing Spirit into form through the body’s gestures in clay.  Through this deep involvement in our own and earth matter we will discover the erotic life force energy that fuels all creativity, and unites us as one being. 

Class Size:   15 – 18 (depending on the size of the room)

Materials Needed:  Clay tools, (wire cutter, or dental floss, wooden clay tools or plastic kitchen utensils, spray bottle, news paper and a board, tray or piece of heavy cardboard.)   We can share as a group.  Wear comfortable clothes for movement, something that can get somewhat dirty, though the clay is easily cleaned off with water.  Clay will be provided. 

Reading – Optional:  Centering: In Poetry, Pottery and the Person.  By M.C. Richards
