Nurturing Resilience: Art & Writing as Sacred Practice
Sunday, March 14th
1:00 - 4:00 pm
Cost; $85 (includes $10 art material fee)
As we move towards the lighter days of spring, this workshop will nurture our natural resilience and restore our connections to beauty and nature through the powerful tools of mindfulness, art-making and reflective writing. We will soothe our souls through the sacred ritual of gathering together and using simple art making processes and writing prompts to access our creativity and imagination. This workshop will be a basis for participants to start or re-start an arts based reflective practice that will sustain and support them. We will build on what we already inherently know we need to cultivate and grow a practice that will sustain us as the season changes and light returns to our worlds. Prior to the workshop, participants will be mailed a hand-made journal to use and a short list of materials to have available for the art processes. No prior writing or art making experience is necessary, only a desire to explore your creative spirit. For more information or to register, contact Margaret at: firstname.lastname@example.org
