About this experience

Mindfulness is the practice of maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens. 

In our modern age it can be difficult to stay present. We are constently moving from one daily task to the next without truly taking in the experiences happening all around and within us.

Research shows that there is a direct relationship between creativity and mindfulness. There is also a correlation between the act of doing art, being surrounded by art, and thus coming into a state of mindfulness.

Both painting and meditation have been found linked as they both improve mood and reduce stress. There are many more beifits of practicing Mindful Art such as: 

  • Improved intuition and trust in your own body (how you are feeling and what it means)

  • Increased emotional awareness

  • Increased sense of control and ability to share inner thoughts

  • Improved awareness of underlying issues that have been hidden

  • Ability to communicate abstract feelings

  • Increased self-esteem and self-acceptance

  • Improved attention span

In this class we will explore our creative minds and rest in a gentle state of mindful awareness. We will offer a glass of wine or bubbles along with light snacks. 

Each week we will focus on a differnet medium or craft to further expand our creative energy and discover what medium resonates with you as an individual.
