Through creativity and laughter we have an opportunity to heal on deeper levels. Part of your program including, body care, art classes and weekly games/movie/bonfire nights are designed to bring this type of healing and special connection with other guests.
Mindfulness and Creativity
Each week we offer an hour and a half to relax, explore and discover. We begin with a short visualization with a particular focus for that day designed to assist you in exploring your inner landscape through the creative process using an assortment of art materials and found objects. Class will be held both indoor and outdoors weather permitting.
This class is for everyone, no one needs to know anything about art, the materials or how to make a product. The focus is entirely on the relaxing experience of playfulness and spontaneity. All materials are provided and assistance is readily available. Each class will attempt to capture some of what you are experiencing during the process of your healing journey for reflection and moving forward.
Arriving on time will mean you get the full benefit of the introduction and the meditation that sets up the experience. Sharing your experience with the group is welcomed but optional. We hold a space of non-judgement, with no interpretation or critiquing of our creations. This is a free expression opportunity.
