“This program reveals to its facilitators the human mind, yet it does so gently without judgment. The training opens the door wide to access understanding that we as facilitators can then pass along to our peer groups, reconnecting the spirit and the mind. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who has had their interest peaked by ArtoverMind.com to say YES to the training: it is a positive door to open for yourself; and if you share what you learn with others, that’s the cherry on top.” -Stacey-Anne Curtis (PEER Facilitator), Ontario, Canada

At ARToverMind our first passion lies in equipping individuals who have personal mental health experiences, with the knowledge, tools and support they need to run their own expressive-art healing programs in order to build their self-confidence, create healing spaces for themselves and others, and possibly make income using an entrepreneurial model. We offer our 2-hour webinar certification training once a year.
The cost of the training is $150 CAD. (Not including the cost of your clients’ Participant Workbooks)
Our next training date is: TBA (Please contact Shevy Marie at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire. Also, check out our FAQs page if you have additional questions).
