How often do you check in with yourself and identify how you are feeling? When others ask, “How as are you doing today?” do you know how you are feeling?
This workshop is for individuals who are interested in combining art and meditation to increase emotional-awareness. Through guided meditation and reflective art making, this transformative evening will tap into participants’ creative energy, helping them to identify and sit with their internal emotions. Participants will learn how to silence their inner critic by focusing on the process of creating art, rather than the visual aspects of the product.
The workshop will introduce participants to an arts-based mindfulness practice that enhances moment-to-moment awareness, helping you to be more intentional in your relationships and day to day life.
Come join us for an evening of slowing down, meditating, making art, and checking in. No artistic experience is necessary to fully participate and benefit from this workshop and art materials will be provided.
