Spring Program News

We have entered the cycle of Spring and this may be a wonderful time to ask yourself, What in my life is arising, growing, and moving toward expression? On a program level the energy of new beginnings and expansion is reflected in our welcome of Masters in Transformative Arts spring students Kathy Gaschk and Jena Shellito and faculty Alisa Golden who will be teaching the course Writing and the Creative Process.
