Creating Art in a Sacred Space
Intuitive Painting & Meditation Workshop
Sunday the 27th of Sept, 2-4pm
Studio 5.03 & Online
The Autumn season invites us to connect with the Earth and to remember the cycle of nature deeply embedded in our bodies. The Earth is the place where we can rest, evaluate our lives, and get ready to move into the depth of our soul. Autumn represents the harvest time, a time where we can receive the fruits of our work but also decide what we wish to let go and change.
When we find the space to observe our lives and listen to the needs of our bodies, our vision can widen, and new possibilities can start to arise.
Through guided imagery, intuitive painting, and journaling we will explore the West direction of the Medicine Wheel, the energy of Autumn, and introspection.
Creating art in a sacred space allows us to go a little bit deeper and embrace our creative potential. The sacred space supports us and holds us tightly so that we can move through the entire process with ease and grace.
Where: Please note that only a distant option is now available. A recording will be sent to you by next week and you will be able to enjoy the workshop in your own time.
When: Sunday the 27th of September, 2-4pm
Exchange: £22.00 per person (£18.00 Concession). A few places are available by donation also.

Everyone is welcome and no experience in painting or meditation is required
ONLINE: Please make sure that you have some acrylic paint (primary colours) and some paper. Normally we work on A2 but you can also stick a few A4 together with some masking tape. Oil pastels and crayons can work too, however some paint will allow more freedom during the process. We will stream directly from our studio.
STUDIO: There is hand sanitiser available in the studio. Art materials will be provided but won't be shared between participants. Please bring your own yoga mat (if you don't have it just let me know) and blanket for our relaxation. You are welcome to bring your own art materials as well. The studio space will allow us to keep the 2 meter distance as required
Please note that only a distant option is now available. A recording will be sent to you by next week and you will be able to enjoy the workshop in your own time.
