The Expressive Mind Open Studio offers a healing art circle at Windhorse Studio near Peggy's Cove. The groups are a mindfull inquiry based in creative activity. Each session begins with mindfulness practices and contemplation of a particular theme, which we then explore in the art. We explore both the positive qualities of mind and difficult life questions. Using the principles of mindfulness and embodied awareness in painting, calligraphy, pastels, and collage; we engage in an open-hearted personal journey. Participants identify and develop their personal themes and capacities and share their process in discussions. Margaret's groups are known for their warmth, humor, clarity and depth.
