We are so excited at Heart Place to launch our Community, Art & Culture program. heartplace.community
Here we will offer opportunities to create culture, share culture and build bridges of understanding through art, photography, music, song, storytelling, community gathering, sharing of food, movement and dance.
This program is vital to our overall Vision & Mission.
Together through exploring art and culture we deepen relationship to our bodies, each other and the land. Modern Science now recognises the co-regulation that happens when we sing, move together and share stories as one of the most effective ways to heal and connect.
Our intention is that through this program and other Heart Place programs, we strengthen our capacity for compassionate listening. Also our capacity to hold different perspectives, yet come together to effect the healing and change needed to adjust to a rapidly changing planet and create a socially just world.
The Arts and humanities are so very significant at this time in history. Let us value our artists and musicians, our poets and deep reflective 'thinkers' and together create the space to express what seeks to be felt and shared within each and everyone one of us.

“Expressive arts therapy--the purposeful application of art, music, dance/movement, dramatic enactment, creative writing, and imaginative play--is a non-verbal way of self-expression of feelings and perceptions. More importantly, they are action-oriented and tap implicit, embodied experiences of trauma that can defy expression through verbal therapy or logic.” Cathy A. Malchiodi
" we must create new expressions of culture ....If enough people do the same thing over and over, or if they share something with each other enough times eventually it becomes culture" Resmaa Menakem

"Short film presentation explaining the four core healing practices-- movement, sound, storytelling through image, and silence through contemplative and self-regulatory practices. This is an introduction to the implicit experiences found in expressive work and particularly expressive arts therapy that is used as a way to understand and repair the body's experience of trauma."
