About the Class:  Relationships are one of the most rewarding — as well as the most frustrating aspects of our lives. Whether in intimate or work settings, the quality of our relationships has an enormous impact on the quality of how we live, our self-esteem, and our careers. Yet, we often find the behavior of others baffling — even if we have known them intimately for many years. Often, the things we do not understand in others are the greatest sources of problems and conflicts in our relationships. Clearly, the better we know ourselves and the people in our lives, the more harmonious and satisfying our relationships will be. This is a workshop for Couples. Couples will work together to connect through Somatic Art. We will access areas where the individual may be blocked from their artistic expression and how the couple may find a deeper connection through artistic communication. Using tools from EMDR/Bilateral Stimulation, Enneagram Typing/Character types, and IBSR Somatic mapping each participant will create a deeper connection with themselves and others.

We will remove unhealthy stress and open up the artist's palette to physical expressions of color, mental descriptors, and balancing of the art/science part of our brain, or organized side while opening it up to the fully self-expressed side. We will remove barriers to creativity and discover what artwork best suits you.

We will help participants recognize personal strengths as well as to uncover the blind spots that they bring to their relationships. If you want to improve your relationship with a spouse, child, friend, business associate, or family member, this Workshop will be invaluable.

Artist Bio:   Judi Moolten is a retired trauma behavioral specialist. Judi spent 20-plus years as a social worker and clinical director for nonprofits before she opened her mental health training facility that she ran until COVID hit. Before COVID, she traveled the world training clinicians in the most advanced somatic psychology processing tools available. Now retired from the Mental health profession as a licensed clinician, she has found a way to disrupt behavioral health and the art world by bringing what was once used only in a clinical setting to treat unhealthy stress to the mainstream. Judi occasionally teaches, coaches, and supervises clinicians and non-mental health professionals in unhealthy stress that leads to trauma. Couples using Somatic Art are her specialty. She also teaches real estate agents how to apply stress-reducing tools to the art of communication between buyers and sellers of property. In addition, she is a top Real Estate Agent in WNC and owns her own Real Estate Firm, Grateful Mindset Properties, where she serves WNC & beyond with a grateful mindset and volunteers for many nonprofits in the area as a charity liaison and more. In addition, she has a weekly radio show combining, art, science, and a tad of real estate.
