Upcoming Events, Groups & Workshops
Just Breathe: Self Care Group for sufferers of anxiety, stress or tension / Monday evenings, Sept 15-Oct 20
This 6-week process group is intended for those of us who itch for expression, presence and heart in our daily lives but can’t seem to find it because of stress, anxiety or tension. We will learn how to attend to our needs through understanding what drives and activates our stress and anxiety. Each week we’ll process a different theme of self-care to engage the often abandoned or rejected parts of our self. / Register & find out more.
A Journey through Loss and Grief / Wednesday evenings, Start Date TBA
This 5 week group explores grief and loss, whether it’s a loved one, a relationship, a job, or a community. It is often difficult to access and express the complex feelings that exist around loss, but many times it is music, poetry and art that helps us remember, that accompanies us on the grief journey, and helps bring us back to ourselves. Music Therapist Vanessa Contopulos invites you to a creative space of exploring loss within your story through the tools of music, art, and poetry. / Register & find out more.
Holy Clutter: finding God in our stacks of unread mail / Saturday, September 20th
We will give you time and space to work through your clutter creatively and in a contemplative fashion, allowing God’s presence to infuse your time with meaning and new possibility. What if we could learn how to turn our clutter, our mundane responsibilities, into times of life-giving connection to God, ourselves and others? / Register & find out more.
Dance Moves: understanding your relationship patterns / Friday, October 3rd
Couples get into patterns of relating that can be mystifying or sometimes terrifying. We wonder, if we love each other so much, why are we so out of rhythm? Sometimes the dance is beautiful and creates deeper closeness and other times there’s a lot of stepping on toes. This workshop is designed for young couples to take a look at their dance and how it’s working for them. We’ll explore how and why we turn away from each other when what we really want is closeness and connection. / Register & find out more.
Learning to Live Out Loud: Adventures in Art Journaling Wednesdays, Starting October 1st
In this eight week group, each week art therapist Lisa Kemble will use various prompts to guide you in self-exploration and creative expression and will teach you new techniques with paper, paint, collage and found art media. You will emerge from the group creatively invigorated and possessing unique and personal art journal filled with your own colorful artwork. / Register & find out more.

“Just this morning, as he got out of bed, my husband remarked quizzically, “Is it actually a little chilly in here?” Yep, it’s true–fall is approaching and back to school is imminent. For some of you, school may have already begun. For us (San Diego Unified), it’s a mere 10 days away. We are relishing these last days of summer like a quickly-melting popsicle, and at the same time, preparing for a new season of soccer and violin and drums and homework and early morning wake-ups…”Read more.
Going Under by Natalie Rush Cooney
“My husband Ryan and I have walked down to the beach a few times this weekend to enjoy the cool water in the afternoons. This is not something we take very lightly. Both raised in small towns, he from a west Chicago suburb and I from northern California gold country, we didn’t always have the option to stroll down to the beach. More like a stroll to the next house, a river or tire swing. As he explores what it means to surf, I am a sucker for diving under waves…”Read More.
