“This program has forever changed my life. It has taken me to new places and opportunities I never thought possible. I have turned an emotionally draining job into a passion that was re-ignited. I have turned from hidden-artist to artist. This is more than learning to teach this work; it is about discovering who you really are.”

“I re-birthed my own creative spirit”

Meredith Malkin, MA, LMHC, EAFI graduate


Expressive Arts is a holistic field that invites profound examination and transformation into all aspects of human experience – body, mind and spirit. A variety of powerful and playful, individual and group arts processes evoke authentic creative expression and potent personal growth. Together we create a strong group “container,” held safe through guidelines, ground rules and expertly facilitated gentle witnessing and sharing. Create a meaningful, personal mandala (sacred circle) that beautifully “holds” the totality of your experience over the course of the program.




















By providing grounded experiences in visual arts, writing, guided meditation and movement, Kathleen, Tamara and Victoria help others discover and befriend their authentic self in ways that are deep and gentle. I have known the Expressive Arts Florida Institute faculty  for many years as three of the foremost thinkers and teachers in the field of Expressive Arts. They have developed an engaging model of experiential learning that enables students to grow as individuals and to imagine new ways to serve their communities by accessing the creative process.   -Pat B.
