Presenter: Terri Goslin-Jones, PhD, REACE
I joined the Creative Spirit Circle with a passion to be engaged in a creative community committed to evolving consciousness using person-centered expressive arts. The immersion in this circle process nourishes my entire “way of being”. In my professional life, I serve as Psychology/Creativity Studies faculty at Saybrook University and previously worked as an organizational development consultant. My reason for teaching and serving as an advisor for doctoral research is to support life-long learners in a quest to create change in their life and in their part of the world. Creativity is at the heart of my work. I am an expressive arts practitioner, a poet, mindfulness facilitator and lead poetry circles as a graduate of the Institute for Poetic Medicine. My creative passions include family life, expressive arts, gardening, a love for life-long learning, poetry, physical fitness, spirituality/contemplative living, and international travel.
