Online via Zoom

As we weave through the mythology of Parvati, Durga and Kali lets meet these powerful energies within ourselves. As we weave through the myth of one goddess who has many faces, an experiential session where you can engage with art, movement and ritual.

Chandini Harlalka is a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist( REAT) from IEATA (International Expressive Art Therapy Association) and a Psychodrama Director (PD) from the Moreno Institute, Germany.  She also holds an MFA in Art history. Chandini’s work is rooted in experiential methodology and Eastern contemplative traditions. Inspired by insights into the human experience, Chandini is committed to a path of self-inquiry, examining the nature of mind and reality by applying critical enquiry and direct embodied experience. Through her work, Chandini aims to re imagine habitual patterns of behaviour by challenging perception and self-reinforcing systems of belief that lock us into cycles of dissatisfaction.  Her work combines the use of fine arts, authentic movement, drama, sand-play and other experiential forms to create a representation of thoughts and feelings, while allowing them to surface through the act of personal discovery, to foster bottom-up transformation.

Belinda Rego is an Expressive Arts Therapist, who passionately believes that every individual has the potential to use their creativity and imagination to tap into inner wisdom and participate in their own healing.  As a therapist she sees herself as one who facilitates and holds the space for this process of partnering with Soul, and working through layers that come in the way of the expression of one’s true Self. Her educational background is in the Visual Arts  and has a Masters in Fine arts from the prestigious Kala Bhavana, Visva Bharati university. She is drawn to Jungian psychology and the transformative  power of symbols and images in the therapeutic process. She is also trained and certified in Psychodrama which she incorporates in her work.
