What to Expect
This is a retreat day dedicated to your well-being, developing your capacity to be fully present in mind and body, moment by moment. The Art of being ‘Playfully Present’ will be explored. Moving beyond habitual responses, you will explore the ability to ‘Approach Mindfully and Respond Creatively’.
The relationship between Creativity and Mindfulness will be explored. Creative exercises will be used extensively throughout the day, both to illustrate and to deepen our understanding of Mindfulness. Participants will be given the opportunity to use a wide variety of creative techniques and materials. Group discussion, and personal inquiry will take place within a friendly supportive atmosphere. Some previous meditation experience will be of benefit and will enhance your experience of the day. The course facilitator is a highly skilled Mindfulness Instructor with a Masters in Art Education.
