Due to the recent Corona Virus pandemic, the Northern California Epilepsy Foundation has decided to offer a FREE online expressive arts therapy program for adults living with Epilepsy. During difficult times, it is exceptionally important to build a loving sense of community!

This program will be led by expressive arts counselor Xan Morris. This strengths-based online program will give participants an opportunity to learn new stress management skills during times of uncertainty, explore different creative modalities, and build an online support network.

No art experience is necessary. This program will predominately focus on the literary and visual arts, including journal prompts, collage, vision boarding, and self-reflective writing processes.

Please join us for this amazing mind and heart expanding opportunity!  Please email art@epilepsynorcal.org for any questions
