Cancer has an immense impact on our bodies and well-being. We often feel disconnected and estranged from our bodies during treatment and lose our sense of self. This Twistshop will introduce participants to an integrative, sensorimotor-based non-clinical art therapy activity that allows one to be intuned and more connected to the body and physical self. This session will provide tools that help awaken personal insights through intuitive art making. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a mind, body, and brain connection as they learn to foster focus, relaxation, and resilience.
