Insightful Adventures: An Inner and Outer Journey
Sunday, November 26, 2023 on Zoom
This session will focus on the creative process in a playful and curious way! We will tune into inner nudges and look around our environments in a mindful way, to explore and expand on personal meaning.
Each person will create an intention for the session. This may be something very specific and personal, or it may be more broad! Once the intention is created, we will explore what FLIRTS with our eye. It is encouraged to take a short journey outside (whether it is down the street, in a yard, or you may wish to remain indoors and explore inside environments). This process of looking outward with curiosity, intuition, and connection, leads us to hints, insight, and further information regarding our intention.
You may want to use a sketchbook/journal, camera, or drawing materials on this adventure! Let it be a healing time of connection for you.
Our goal is to tune in, look out, and notice the support that is always surrounding us. We are connected and able to engage with the hints of our living world at any moment. No art experience needed! All are welcome!
