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. 





Join me for a workshop series to explore a variety of Tamalpa Life/Art Process methods to support safety, body awareness, connection, and creativity. Learn to incorporate these approaches into your work with trauma recovery or as forms of self-care. Dr. Sammartino draws upon her twenty-year experience as a therapist and educator, including her recent research-based work that explores the value of combined somatic and artistic approaches for trauma healing.

On-line Workshop series through Tamalpa Institute

 Somatic Expressive Arts



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.

Sessions are offered on Fridays and Saturdays

Limited to 16 participants per group, save your spot!​

2-hour session for 4 weeks: $160


All group sessions are from 9-11am Pacific Time and are conducted via Zoom.
