Art Classes for Stress Reduction

How creating art relieves stress….

  • Creating art provides an activity that can allow your brain a break from usual thoughts.

  • Art is a natural way to practice mindfulness: it can help us to process our challenges, boost our confidence and instill in us a sense of resilience.

  • This  workshop will provide you with studio time  to relieve some of your stress,  soothe the emotions through the use of art, meditation and breathing, residing in creating more  space,  less reactivity and more resilience.

  • This class is focused more on relieving the stress rather than  on creating a work of  art. 

  • “Art is a natural way to practice mindfulness: it can help us to process our challenges, boost our confidence and instill in us a sense of resilience.”

  • No previous experience with Art is necessary, just a willingness to explore and  heal!

Changing the pattern of your environment and energy field can have the power to transform stress and create an opening for new beginnings, transformation and inspirations.

We will discuss the nature of patterns as energetic visuals that can be absorbed and emulated. Nature’s  designs, sacred geometry and forms support and enhance our energy and behavior. We will work collectively on a larger sacred grid and also create a smaller grid for our personal practice.  This workshop will cover a variety of Crystal benefits + grid  patterns to utilize in our meditations/intentions, allowing for a  frequency and energetic vibration, that can be sewn into the energetic matrix and absorbed. 

In this workshop we will be exploring some of the Sacred Geometry found in our world, its purpose, history, and how it can be incorporated into your own meditation practices. We will be examining  grid designs, physical, spiritual + emotional  aspects of the grid,  crystal arrangements, and how you can utilize this tool for your mental health + well-being.   All Grid materials will be supplied + some crystals.

Meditative Calligraphy

The meditative practice of  Calligraphy, creates a powerful vibrational field, helping us to transform our daily stress, emotions, and habitual thinking. This form of practice connects us to the Tao source, such as unconditional love, forgiveness, and harmony. In this vibrational field, we can transform negative energy into positive energy. This workshop is based on Calligraphy from a few traditions,  Meditations, and Gentle Movements.  We will focus our attention on the release of stress, rather than the production of a final piece.
