Jennie will be presenting at this year’s American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama Conference in early April. She will present a workshop and co-host the Closing Gathering/Ritual.
Her Workshop: “What Masks do we wear?” Given the global aspects of the Pandemic, do we keep masked to keep going? Who is it we unmask to survive? Or to free ourselves? What other masks do we wear? Mask making is a powerful tool that can be used in any clinical setting to enhance emotional development, strengthen ego state/identity work, and explore hidden parts of the Self. Participants will make their own masks and explore through psychodramatic empty chair.
Closing Ritual and Passing of the Torch:
You are invited to the ASGPP Conference Closing Ceremony.Come celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Psychodrama and share moments from our first virtual ASGPP Psychodrama Conference. There will be Playback Theatre and a passing of the torch to the 2022 conference committee in Chicago. Please join us!
I hope you are safe and well in this unprecedented and strange time. In the last few weeks, along with all of you, I have been mulling over the current coronavirus and its impact around the world. In this process, one of my mentors, Jonathan Fox, developed a project for a way for people to share stories through a virtual platform and connect those who may be stuck at home. It is called the Listening Hour. It is a way for us to share our personal stories in a nonjudgmental way. The experience is designed to be enjoyable and give us some positive energy for our day by simply sharing our stories. Continue reading “The Listening Hour”
We are in unprecedented times. Many of us are doing things in ways we haven’t done before. We are developing an online arts/meditation based healing group to offer support, create a community and supports our ability to use the arts to move from fear to having agency.
Is this something that you would be interested in?
If this is something you would like please email or call us to register. I envision meeting for an hour, to check in, make art (including music, movement, visual art and poetry) and then a sharing. We will work on a Zoom platform.
Now is the time for us to become connected. While we need to have physical distancing, we need to have and be socially connected.We are all in this together and my hope is that we can create a community of support,for each other emotionally, and support us to find ways to use this time creatively revsioning our lives and our world.

At JourneyWorks we recognize that stories are central to life. We understand that the stories we are told, and those we tell ourselves and others, shape our understanding of the lives we lead.
We know that many stories are sacred and must be honored and approached with reverence. Such stories guide us as we live our lives. They nurture us, aid us as we seek to make sense of our life path, offer hope and solace, and support us in developing relationship with that which is larger than ourselves.
We will work with you as you explore the stories that shape and enrich you, and support you as you seek to find the stories that can guide you in living your preferred way of living.
Deep healing happens with the support of community. We encourage community by offering classes, workshops, and groups in the Expressive Arts Therapies, the Arts, Reiki, and Shamanic Healing. We acknowledge the turning of the year, and our relationship to the Earth, by offering seasonal gatherings and ceremony. On occasion we work with community partners to create opportunities for the community to meet visiting artists and healers, or to address community concerns.
