23 Apr 2023 | Workshop Three: Exploring Resilience & Creativity |
A Mindfulness Meditation & Art Therapy Workshop
11 Jun 2023 | Workshop Four: Active Hope
A creative and explorative workshop integrating therapeutic art-making with guided mindfulness meditation, open to all levels of experience.
How can we cultivate resilience to support ourselves during challenging times?
One theme offered during the session will be trees as a symbol of resilience, explored through images, mindfulness meditation, art-making and group sharing.
We will connect with our felt-sense and self-expression to consider how we resource ourselves: how can we care for ourselves and others? How we can grow and thrive amidst adversity and change? How we can rest in our unique individual expression within our interconnected and interdependent networks?
• Cultivate spaciousness, presence and ease
• Open to creativity and insight
• Practice resilience and grounding
• Connect with the heart and emotions
All levels of experience with mindfulness and/or art-making are welcome to attend!
This workshop will be delivered via Zoom. You will need access to a private space to make art, and at least two art materials of your choice.
