Mindfulness - Using Painting as Meditation to Quiety the Monkey Mind
$40 + GST
Quiet the monkey mind with an immersion in colour and form and produce lively and stunning art! Artist Iris Mes Low deals with her own depression through the creation of art and she will walk and guide you through painting in a new and meaningful, meditative way. No painting experience necessary.
Mindfulness is a form of meditation; any activity that focuses the mind and engages the body to block your mind from wandering anywhere but the here and now, and just like happiness, it’s something that looks different to everyone. Mindfulness practice is being employed in psychology to alleviate a variety of mental and physical conditions, such as bringing about reductions in depression symptoms, reducing stress & anxiety.
