Event description

Description

A beautiful intersection naturally exists between creative expression + mindfulness practice.

Imagine connecting the rhythm of your breath to the intuitive marks your pencil is making on paper.

Imagine a meditation to music, exploring fluidity with ink on wet paper; engaging your senses to enrich the experience.


YOU WILL LEARN

  • To incorporate more creative expression into your life with simple yet profound exercises.

  • To awaken your senses to enrich the experience of creating.

  • To further appreciate the often unnoticed detail and beauty around you in deeper and unexpected ways.


Whether you are an art-making/mindfulness veteran or a total beginner, this workshop will create an inspiring opening in your life.


SOME OF WHAT WE WILL COVER:

  • Intuitive drawing practices & mark-making
  • Engaging various senses in the creative process - such as incorporating music while creating.
  • How it feels in the body when we are in "resistance vs allowing", tightness vs flow.
  • Expanding typical definitions of drawing, creativity, mindfulness and meditation.
  • Exploring the beauty of imperfection.


FAQs

Are you SURE this workshop is for me - “I’m not creative/I can't draw” +/or “I’m not a meditator”

Yes, all you need is an open mind and a little playful curiosity! This workshop has been designed for all levels of experience – you will surprise yourself. We will be focusing on the sensory experience of slowing down and exploring expression with art materials, focusing on the process, not the final product.

I am very comfortable with creative expression and/or mindfulness meditation, will there be something NEW for me?

Yes, I will be providing a space to explore and play in combination with mindfulness practices and concepts, so even if you have experience with one or both, you likely haven’t combined them in this way before. With an open mind, there is always something new to discover. Many of these exercises are simple yet actually very profound. They are practices that can be repeated many times with new discoveries along the way.
