Compassionate Storytelling: The Intimacy of Being

  • Kutenai Art Therapy Institute 191 Baker Street Nelson, BC, V1L 4H1 Canada (map)

A single-day workshop exploring the intimate story of our inner lives through expressive arts therapy with Dr. Markus Alexander.


Intimacy of being requires a strong yet subtle resonance with movement within. Markus’ approach to expressive arts work is to give that resonance within a life in the world. In this way, our embodied feelings become rich and lush.

Storytelling is one way to create a frame for the unfolding of our compassionate relationship with both our hearts and the heart of our communities. Expressive arts, creates ways of exploring our inner movement, i.e. ‘story lines” in ways that are verbal and non-verbal.

Markus began his work as an expressive arts educator in New York in the mid-80’s and continues now at World Arts Organization in Edmonton. He is senior faculty at the European Graduate School in Switzerland, adjunct faculty at St. Stephen’s College - Art Therapy Specialization and teaches at the Haliburton School of Art and Design.
