Mindful Movement Therapy Workshop with Shanti Krigel

Sunday, September 10, 2-4pm
Drawing inspiration from, and breathing intention into the Jewish high holidays, this 2 hour workshop for women is designed to help build inner-strength and resiliency. We will explore themes of teshuva, forgiveness, and renewal, inviting experiences of trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, stress and addiction into the room. The session will weave in dance movement therapy, yoga therapy, mindfulness techniques and creativity, and will serve as a safe place to both share and process emotions, as well as develop and strengthen body- based coping skills that support resiliency and healing.

Shanti Krigel LMHC, LADC, R-DMT is a practicing psychotherapist and addiction specialist at Jewish Family Services in Seattle. A licensed therapist for 15 years, Shanti works with clients healing though a wide variety of challenges including; trauma, grief, anxiety, stress, depression and addiction.
