Evening Workshops

At Rediscovery Through Expressive Arts Therapy, evening workshops are starting up! Join me—Janis Harper, certified expressive arts therapist—in my home studio in Old City Waterfront, Nanaimo, BC, for small group workshops designed to help you explore whatever you may need to at the time: an ongoing personal issue, a body-health concern, a recent upheaval or transition—or simply your own playful, creative self.

Facebook, email, texting, the busy-ness of our daily lives—it’s so easy to get caught up in this sticky web. All of these distractions can lead to a disconnection from our inner selves, an addiction to “doing,” and feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, or of being stuck.

Take a break from it all, disrupt old patterns, and engage your inner and outer senses. Let me help you tap into your own rich personal resources, and find new ways of being, new possibilities. Rediscover your own innate creative wisdom. Surprise yourself!

 Through guided meditations, gentle movement, writing, sound, and visual art, I’ll lead you on a personal journey where you can find what wants to come out and allow it to emerge.

It’s already in you. I can help you see it.

No arts skill/experience is required, just an attitude of openness and respect towards yourself and others. No analysis or judgement of artistic merit is involved. There won’t be more than 8 participants in a group, and we’ll work individually, in pairs, and as a group, depending on our comfort levels. These sessions are for you, and you may be as private as you like. You won’t be asked to take a risk you’re not ready for, and you’re free to sit out at any time.


Cost: $20 per session. (Discounts are available if financial hardship interferes with your desire to attend.)

Please email me to inquire about when the next workshop is scheduled.

Workshops are two hours long.

Wear comfortable clothes and bring a notepad and pen. All other materials are supplied


I look forward to exploring with you!
