        🌸Creativity, Connecting, Compassion - Art Therapy Conference in Bali 2019!  

Dear Art Therapist, Artist, Psychologist, Counsellor, Artists, Teacher, anyone from the world!

We are Yaro Starak & Gemma Garcia, Directors of the Gestalt Art Therapy centre

We are the organizers of the International Art Therapy Conference in Bali- Indonesia, December 2019, also we are the organizers of the first 2011 and Second 2012 Art Therapy Conference in Bali, and they were a success!

We are very excited to have developed this Art Therapy Conference, to be held in Ubud (Bali) during the days:

 December 22nd to 27th, 2019.

The theme of the International Art Therapy Conference will be:

"Connecting, Compassion, Creativity and Celebration"

At this time, we think that we need to review the meaning of "Connecting", in any context (life, therapy, work, relationships, etc) and the Conference will be a perfect space to investigate this.

"Compassion" is also an important part in any kind of therapy (working with people and also compassion for ourselves) 

"Creativity", as a part of an Art Therapy process.

and December, is time for celebrating, Bali is a spiritual place for people, it is the best time to be in Bali.
