Wednesdays 4:30-5:30: POETRY Tiffany Promise, MFA, MA
This is a group for teens interested in tapping into the emotional current of poetic verse—freely expressing whatever they want to express. We will read together, write together, share and support one another on our poetic journeys. No experience needed, just an interest in the healing nature of poetry, and the pluckiness to investigate yourself and your world with new poetic lenses–all the while developing stronger self-expression skills.
Thursdays 4:30-5:30: GIRLS’ GROUP Valeria Harris, MA
What defines a healthy relationship? In this group, we’ll explore relationships in all their various iterations: relationship to friends and family, to one’s community, and most importantly, to one’s self. Each day will have a slightly different focus, with the consistent theme of building nourishing, conscious, authentic relationships. We’ll work somatically to develop body awareness, and creatively to explore our unconscious, with plenty of space to develop trust and support within the group.
