The Threshold Arts approach is to meet participants at the frontiers of their life journeys and to do so with the belief that one's path is more true and viable when approached with artistry and improvisation rather than conforming one's choices to a limiting belief system or a preconceived ideal.
The vision for this program is to equip you with the capabilities to respond to such circumstances in a way that gives you agency in actively shaping your life and future.
To cultivate this capacity for self-renewal throughout the weekend, we will employ a unique blend of individual practices for tapping the wisdom of your body, use of the group to develop and test new moves for difficult situations, and improvisational arts to anchor and ground the answers which emerge in dialogue with one another.
What To Expect:
This program will be useful for anyone facing a major threshold, or wishing to improve the ability to navigate defining moments. Leaders and change agents in organizational settings, and those in the healing professions will find numerous applications. There will be time for individual work and reflection on the approaches used. For more information see: www.thresholdarts.org
What Others Say:
"There are certain things about relationships that always plagued me - I was able to recognize what happened once they went wrong, but didn't know exactly why. The beauty of working with ThresholdArts is that they illuminate what's beneath the surface so you can understand what's really going on and take steps to improve a relationship. I'm also amazed by how little time it takes Mitch and Maryliz to have the great impact that they do." Alex G.
