What is creative mindfulness?
Is a way that will help you develop a habit of creative mindfulness and give you a toolkit for creative mindfulness.
All exercises are aimed to have fun, relax and reflect.
Extra benefits are increased, focus and new ideas.
The practices help enhance internal awareness, self-expression, and mind-body integration.
Many participants report feeling less anxious and a greater sense of ease.
Enjoy self-expression through creative mindfulness: a unique, intuitive painting process that helps deepens your self-awareness and creativity. This class includes guided meditations, written reflection exercises, and optional group sharing to help you turn inward, play and connect in community. Art demonstrations will be given regarding how to tap into your intuition, ways to use the art materials, and time to create and reflect on your art work. Creative mindfulness focuses on the process of exploration and internal inquiry through art, not on the end visual result. Everyone is welcome - No experience necessary!
All exercises are aimed to have fun, relax and reflect. Extra benefits are increased focus and new ideas.
The exercises are inspired by what I learned from working and exploring in Argentina, Spain and Japan. Mindfulness arts are used in healthcare to treat stress, anxiety and depression.
