Expressive Artist

Dr. jamie Marich

Dr. Jamie Marich is a practitioner of the expressive arts, which by definition is multimodal and intermodal engagement in various creative forms. Jamie grew up on stage playing violin, performing Croatian and Slavic folk repertoire, and participating in both figure skating and theater. As she grew up, Jamie served as a liturgical musical director and actively performed and recorded as a singer-songwriter. A life-long writer, she found that connecting with different pursuits like filmmaking, visual art, yoga, and mindful dance helped her to connect with the written word even more. Jamie’s life exemplifies how the expressive arts allow us to heal and flourish. All expressive and creative forms are on the table for Jamie, and they can be integrated into her talks and workshops. The expressive arts offer a powerful vehicle for Jamie’s spiritual teaching and retreat or workshop facilitation. For organizational cultures, booking Jamie to conduct an expressive arts-based workshop and group process is a dynamic way to work through creative blocks and engage in further team building.

This workshop was a masterclass in effective and inclusive education. By weaving personal and professional experiences, maintaining an invitational approach, and incorporating trauma-informed principles, Dr. Jamie created a space where learning was not just informative but transformative.”
