Led by Dr. Beate Stych and Bonnie Berkowitz, this two part wellness series focuses on guiding participant in ways to bring mindfulness and meditation into their every day life, first through understanding how to keep mindfulness at the forefront of daily life and then through learning to integrate mindfulness into the process of art-making and creation.

Part 2: The Mindfulness of Art-Making: With a mindful presence, and without judgment, in this second of a two-part series, we will further our meditation practice and invite art making into the experience. Developing a daily meditative creative practice may reduce the stress we carry and strengthen our ability to concentrate as we learn to set aside important time for self care. The union of breath and art making can be immediate and achievable. Setting skillful intentions with a focus on mindfulness will be paired with creative prompts in order to visually express without stress. Both new and experienced artists can benefit from creating art in service of taking care of the mind, body, and spirit. Sunday, October 15th, 1pm-4pm.
