Every 3rd Saturday of the Month
10am - 11am

Monthly Mindfulness Drop-in classes

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Anais Nin
Creative activities naturally ease us into a process of focus, concentration, equanimity and flow. This is often the same process we experience when we’re practicing mindfulness. Artmaking magically engages one into a state of present moment awareness gently developing acceptance of our experience of ourselves inside and outside, without attachment to the outcome. In the process of creating, we are also able to befriend and gradually change the habits of negative self-talk, inner criticism, perfectionism and self-doubt that often cause us to feel creatively blocked.
Bringing a curious, lively awareness and then a kindly, gentle attitude to what we’re making, we can change how we relate to ourselves, our creativity, and the world around us forever.
In this hour long workshop, participants will create well-being themed mandalas with simple art materials with the intention of being with oneself safely and openheartedly. There will be time for sharing the experience in small groups as well. Ages 5 and up welcome and no artistic experience is necessary. A short list of materials will be sent out with registration.

Join us every 3rd Saturday of the month for an opportunity to be introduced, reconnect or deepen an already existing mindfulness practice. Mindfulness is the awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, and with compassion, leading to greater well-being. No experience necessary. Pre-registration required with a $10-$20 Donation.

Due to COVID-19, classes are held on Zoom, unless otherwise noted for that month.
