How can we open to joy and creative expression? This is a creative and explorative workshop integrating therapeutic art-making with guided mindfulness meditation, open to all levels of experience.
This session will develop your understanding of mindfulness, gratitude and appreciation practices. During this time of environmental and economic challenges (amongst other individual and collective challenges) the practices of mindfulness and opening to joy have the potential to support our own personal wellbeing, and ways in which you can meet others facing their own challenges. Through our own resourcing and resilience, we may find new ways to be able to meet and respond to the collective challenges we are experiencing.
- Deepen your understanding of mindfulness, gratitude and appreciation practices
- Understand some of the potential barriers to these practices
- Find ways to resource and nourish yourself in challenging times
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.
