Art Therapy and Mindfulness |
Three creative and explorative workshops which integrate therapeutic art making
with guided mindfulness practices.
Sat 18 Mar 2017 | 10am – 4pm | Mindfulness, Art Therapy & the Body
It can feel like we are living our lives ‘in our head’ rather than our bodies. We will be cultivating embodiment through body-based mindfulness practices and mindful art making.
Sat 08 Apr 2017 | 10am – 4:00pm | Mindfulness, Art Therapy and the Heart
It can feel like we are living in a ‘doing’ rather than a ‘being’ world and that the needs of our emotional selves are not being met. We will be including the heart, feelings and emotions in mindfulness meditation and mindful art making, promoting self-care and compassion.
Sat 06 May 2017 | 10am – 4pm | Mindfulness, Art Therapy and the Mind
It can feel like our minds are filled with thoughts. At times we may feel frantic, anxious or overwhelmed. We will be responding to the ‘thinking’ mind in mindfulness meditation and art making, cultivating spaciousness and ease.
During the sessions there will be opportunity for self-expression, exploring care for oneself and others, investigating your direct experience and, practicing with others in a group context. You will be guided and supported during the workshop by the facilitator.
Who is it for? You are welcome to attend if you are a beginner, or more experienced, to either mindfulness and/or art making.
