Workshops & Group Sessions

Are you looking for ways to live a more creative & embodied life?

Take a pause from your everyday life to connect,
express and create in community in a single class,
weekend or weekly sessions. 

Lewis &Clark Graduate School presents:



Friday, January 26, 2024, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. PT |  3 CEUs

This workshop will explore a variety of somatic and art methods that support safety, body awareness, connection, and creativity.

Mental health practitioners will learn ways to incorporate these approaches into their work with clients, or individually as forms of self care. No previous artistic or dance experience is required.

Presenter Dr. Rosario Sammartino will draw upon her twenty years of experience as a Somatic Movement therapist and educator, including her recent research-based work that explores the value of combined somatic and artistic approaches for trauma healing.

Following this workshop, participants will have the ability to:

  • Understand the value of combined somatic and artistic approaches for healing. 

  • Cultivate and expand their body awareness and expressive abilities.

  • Appreciate the healing power of movement and the arts to connect and celebrate humanity beyond diverse cultures, gender, body types and limitations.


 Somatic Expressive Arts



Saturdays 9 a.m.-11 a.m. PT


Grounded on the Tamalpa Life/Art Process, which combines a variety of somatic-artistic tools–including movement, drawing, creative writing, and performance– I provide a creative and safe space for group participants to explore personal and interpersonal themes & generate new resources to bring into their lives. Group sessions promote healing and growth, supporting the development of creative resources, artful communication, and embodied presence. 

Group sessions are 2 hour-long and take place once a week. Each month a different but interconnected larger theme is explored, allowing ongoing participants to keep expanding and deepening into their process while opening up the space for new members to join the group. Participants are required to sign up for the whole month-long series (4 sessions) and have priority to enroll in the following months. When spaces are made available, new participants are welcome to the group.

Limited to 18 participants per group, save your spot!​
