Expressive Arts: A Holistic Practice

Today we invite you to explore this Guiding Principle with us:

We believe in the holistic nature of Expressive Arts, as it engages the whole person – body/mind/spirit.

Expressive Arts practice effects change in all aspects of human experience. Whether we enter through the portal of body, mind, emotion, or spirit, the arts provide a pathway in to our inner life, and a framework to hold space for ourselves to grow and change.

Watch the video, and absorb the images and words.

We are deeply grateful to our students for allowing us to share photos of their holistic practice.

Expressive Arts Florida Institute is amazing – really top notch faculty and well thought out comprehensive programming. The core faculty have many years of training themselves, and this comes through in their meticulous attention to all aspects of training others including theory and application. I have taught in many places around the world and I always look forward to returning to the Expressive Arts Florida Institute.
