Series of three full days, next dates t.b.c.
During three rich days, taking place over an eight week period, you will have an opportunity to learn core mindfulness practices and develop your experience of self-expression in art. You will receive mindfulness and art-making practices at home to support you between sessions, supported by a 20 page e-book. You will also have two meetings with other participants online between sessions. By the end of the eight weeks you will have an excellent grounding in integrating mindfulness into your daily life, use of art for self-expression and experiential learning to take forward should you wish to train professionally in this area. You are welcome to attend if you are a beginner, or more experienced, to either mindfulness and/or art making.
Day One: cultivating embodiment through body-based mindfulness practices and mindful art making. Connect with your sources of grounding, resilience and support.
Day Two: including the heart, feelings and emotions in mindfulness meditation and mindful art making, promoting self-care and compassion.
Day Three: responding skilfully to the 'thinking' mind in mindfulness meditation and art making, cultivating spaciousness and ease.
