Week 1: Locating & Experiencing Center
Experience a meditation & writing practice that will help you identify your core values, as well as what moves you toward and away from True North. You’ll also learn simple, powerful techniques to help you reorient in everyday situations.
Week 2: Nourishing Intuition
We will play with the concept of intuition through multiple meditations. These meditations will help spark the creative fire to inspire your multi-step process painting and art therapy experiences throughout the coming weeks.
Week 3: Understanding Your Energy
You'll become more aware of your personal energy, the patterned ways in which it tends to move, and how this insight can help you create the transformation you want and need. Explore your own boundaries and learn how you can use this knowledge in relationship with yourself and others.
Week 4: Reconnecting to Your Soul Child/Authentic Self
Gentle movement & a heartfelt meditation will warm you up before we begin our drawings and reflections which will create a dialogue with our soul child. Explore the feeling of inviting childlike moments of joy back into your daily life!
Week 5: Using Breath & Movement to Reorient
Learn to use your physical body to help reorient your mental and energetic bodies through breathwork techniques and an intuitive movement practice. Explore what it feels like to you give your body permission & space to move or be still according to whatever your needs are in the moment.
Week 6: Orienteering: Putting the pieces together
As our group journey comes to a close, our time will include a meditation on becoming an inner witness. We'll also practice, play, share, reflect, & connect.
