A guided Mandala drawing workshop aimed at practicing mindfulness whilst drawing Mandalas. The theme for this workshop is Healing– participants will be practicing healing affirmations and getting into a flow zone while working on their artwork. This is a two hour workshop, that will begin and end with a guided meditation and is open for beginners as well as those with previous experience.
The objective with this workshop is to be able to reach a state where we can focus enough on the repetitive motion of drawing simple designs that incorporate a mandala to then be able to monitor our thoughts – thereby becoming completely present in the moment. Once we can quieten the mind through art, to be able to replace the subconscious narrative with positive healing affirmations.
We will end the session by taking a moment to reflect on what thoughts came up frequently and whether or not we were being kind to ourselves and not judging ourselves too harshly throughout the session. This session is a lot about self love, about taking the time out to just be kind to ourselves whilst anchoring ourselves in the present moment.
