Mindfulness type groups have been proven to help people with healing and with feeling more awakened and in touch with themselves and the world, and more connected to their body.
This mindfulness and art therapy "lab" will be structured and focused on being with yourself in the here and now. We will do mindfulness exercises, including body scan meditations and other experiences with silence using art supplies. There will be a longer time for the main art making component, and we will end with members sharing their art and their experiences during the process.
This is not a "group therapy". It is meant for people interested in being with others while experiencing being with themselves and working on experiencing sensations and feelings during moment to moment awareness. The discussions in the group will focus around sharing what "happened" inside of your body, what it was like to make the art, and being in the here and now.
Anyone interested, please contact me to schedule an initial 20 minute meeting.
