WHAT ARE MINDFULNESS DOODLES?
The wonderful thing about doodling is that it can be self-soothing, satisfying, exploratory, memory-enhancing, and mindful. It is a whole brain activity used by innovators and great thinkers and it is not a sign of a distracted mind, but an engaged one!
In essence, doodling (drawing, painting and making things in general) can be a meditative experience as well as a pleasurable road map to thoughts and ideas.
Using only pencil, pen and paper, you'll learn how to free draw lines, curves and dots to create “Meditation” art that induces relaxation and has an impact on your mood and stress reduction.
Mindfulness Doodles can be done with no special 'artistic' talent needed.
We will start each workshop with a relaxing 10 minute Vedic Meditation session from the wonderful Camilla from Stable House Meditation and a mindfulness drinking exercise with tea, coffee or hot chocolate to get you in the mood to create.
We will then practice shapes and lines, talk about flow of ideas and getting over the fear to make marks on paper and then start to create our own personal designs on special tile cards, which you keep.
All materials will be provided, but if you have a favourite pen/pencil or drawing pad, feel free to bring it along!
Hot and cold drinks and cake will be available during the class.
