$200.00 The Menopause Salon: All 4 workshops
$75.00 The Menopause Salon: Wise Woman Way - An Art Therapy Workshop Exploring Menopause
Women deserve to have a space to speak openly about the changes in their
bodies, relationships, and how they see themselves. In this workshop,
we’ll pull back the curtain to explore what the journey through
menopause looks and feels like to you. Where are you on the journey?
What has the path been like? What’s helping you get across? Living in
the metaphor of a bridge or path, we’ll use art materials to explore
what your journey through menopause has been like in order to build
empathy and validation for your experience. In this workshop, you will
set a new course for healing in a safe, supportive, and validating
space. You will have the opportunity to both share your story and hold
space for others. Using art, you will begin the process of putting the
pieces back together with support and empathy from the courageous
members of the group.
*Please note: Ali will provide all of the art supplies needed. Workshop price reflects this.
Ali Piacente, MA, LGPC, LGPAT
I have spent the majority of my career as an art therapist working with
people of all ages using art therapy and Theraplay® informed practices. I
have a particular interest in working with people who identify as
perfectionists, those navigating life transitions, and supporting the
relationship between parents and children. My practice incorporates
elements of mindfulness including making art with a sense of curiosity
about whatever comes out on the page and building on strengths and
resources you already have. Even though our life experiences are
probably very different from one another, I hope you feel that I am not
above you as an “expert” but instead that at some time I’ve probably
experienced some of the same emotions and together we can find ways to
move through them. Art can hold any amount of pain, suffering, joy, and
love. The beauty of art therapy is that you don’t have to solely rely on
your words. Art therapy is a way to memorialize, validate, and connect
to your inner world so you can move forward with more peace and clarity.
As you take steps in bringing more freedom in your life, I am honored
to be a part of your journey as your guide, witness, and companion.
