Adopted people often have complex feelings, identities and family relationships that are difficult to navigate. The primal wound of separation from the birth mother can result in grief, anger, abandonment, and longing. Relationships with the adopted family can bring gratitude and disappointment. There are few places where the diversity of these adoption experiences can be witnessed and held. Join us for a weekend of exploration and healing with prominent drama therapy and expressive arts facilitators. We will uncover and transform our stories into life affirming narratives through drama therapy and the expressive arts. No previous arts or theatre experience is necessary. Shy people are welcome!
