What will we do during Meditative Painting?
A brief description: We have everything ready before you arrive, enjoy a short presentation about what this is, relax into a demonstration which is very meditative, and then you can play on a practice paper before YOU begin your meditative painting...(yes! you get to paint!) A guided meditation will inspire your experience and then we paint to music for about 30 minutes. We can opt to share as a group or feel free to journal about your experience.
10am-5pm - “Discover YOUR Creative Rhythms” Workshop include Meditative Painting with Sandra, Guided Meditative Sound Healing and Creative Rhythm Wellness.
What will this workshop include?
All the supplies are included. There will be a demonstration so you can begin to relax as you watch the painting evolve and see what "the art of letting go" looks like.
Welcome to a relaxing studio, wear your jammies if you'd like! You can expect to feel a warm welcome, enjoy a beautifully facilitated workshop and you won't be required to do anything.
The invitation is simply to enjoy a couple of hours in a relaxing studio, breathe deeper, let go of expectations on yourself and let the stress melt away. It's about painting "nothing" ! Some people even leave the canvas behind!
The ART is in the LETTING GO.
Meditative Painting IS...
Expressive art experiences are facilitated by providing a safe space for people to experiment with spontaneous art, movement, writing, crafting, music making and more. Participants are invited to authentically express their thoughts and emotions through creative self-expression modules in an atmosphere of unconditional acceptance. The facilitator witnesses and encourages the participants in their creative process often followed by fellowship and sharing experiences.
This can become a self care practice for many or a way to connect on a deeper level in a group setting(especially for those struggling with anxiety).
The goal of most expressive art workshops is to help people learn to let go of the outcome, be present with whatever comes up and breathe through the challenging parts of what we experience.
For some this is pure joy! For some this can be very challenging. There is no correct OR wrong way to experience self expression….it’s just an expression.
Learn more about your own creative process….In this class, it’s process over product.
How can this help us in everyday life?...That's the miracle in this amazing workshop.
In just 2 hours we experience, express and explore with complete abandon….and most people do!
The art is in the LETTING GO.....we create safe space, feel what moves us and we see what unfolds?..
Learn more about yourself through this unique experience by watching or participating
Many people have found this process beneficial with releasing emotional blocks such as self-doubt, grief, anger, stress and depression. The technique of expressing with healing intentions is affectionately called Spirit painting. This is a non-religious experience; open to anyone seeking relaxation and forms of deeper connections. During the demonstration, Sandra will offer a guided meditation and then paint on a large canvas. Everyone is invited to experience this mesmerizing process as a collaborative event.
Interested in learning how to facilitate expressive arts workshops and events?
We are looking for more facilitators to offer this program in communities, organizations and schools.
