At the Intersection of
Spirit & Science
We offer unique opportunities for growth in sandtray therapy, play therapy, clinical supervision, self-of-the therapist, and ethics in clinical practice. The style of our programs is both intentional and organic, aimed to present specific content as well as meeting participants where they’re at, as we do with clients in clinical practice.
Our programs are based in the intersection of spirit and science as experienced in interpersonal neurobiology (presence), symbolic expression, play, and creativity as we strive for wholeness.
We delight in new ideas, and are ever evolving our offerings to remain current.
FEB 25 – MAR 4, 2023
Play, Art & Presence Retreat
An All-Inclusive Getaway in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands
Immerse your senses, delve into creativity, and revive your playful spirit with Heather Maritano and Matece Skow at beautiful, seaside Featherleaf Inn.
Each day begins with engaging your senses and building your capacity to be present through a short guided meditation and yoga, cooled by ocean breezes, followed by a scrumptious, plant-based breakfast featuring local exotic fruits. Linger on the veranda overlooking the sea before we plunge into our experiential workshops. We will start the week exploring masks (persona) and end with mandalas (wholeness) with many activities in-between that tie together our broad theme of exploring the inner and outer landscapes.
Join us for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, photography walks, basket weaving, and much more. Plus enjoy three organic, plant-based gourmet meals catered daily. Learn more and reserve your beautiful accommodations.
Play, Art & Presence
Exploring Inner & Outer Landscapes
Develop your Inner Resources
Professional development is as much about experiencing a way of being, as learning a way of doing.
Experience, Understand, Apply
Each Inner Resources training includes ample experiential process, self-reflection, and in-depth discussion to secure the learning goals. Our teaching methods integrate experience, theory, conceptualization, and application.
Small Group Format
Both online and in-person workshops are kept small in order to facilitate a sense of community and the safety necessary to most fully engage the learning process.
2020 stretched what we believed about experiential learning and the potential for connection online. What we discovered exceeded expectations, and we continue to expand our online offerings to the extent we can ensure our own high standards.

Her on the road presentations started in Brown County (a short 30 minutes from home) and have taken her as far as Hong Kong.
