Morning Meditation Circles

Breathing Meditation

Meditation is a form of meditation that heightens and enhances your awareness of your connection to the universe. This type of meditation is often used to encourage spiritual awakening and also helps to lighten and lessen feelings of isolation, stress and/or depression by elevating your perspective on life to a higher level. At the completion of a  meditation you will feel as though you have a “bigger picture” outlook. You may even sense more deeply that you are part of a vast universe and that your essential nature is, in truth, infinite. This meditation can potentially assist you in feeling that you are not just a human being moving through life, but that you are a spiritual being with the ability to find resilience, new perspectives, and calm inside yourself. This guided cosmic meditation is easy to participate in and most of all can give you a sense of calm and safety to explore your inner space.

Stress Reduction Meditation

Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years. Meditation originally was meant to help deepen understanding of the sacred and mystical forces of life. Today meditation is commonly used for relaxation and stress reduction. Meditation is considered a type of mind-body complementary medicine which produces a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind.

Benefits of meditation include a sense of calm, peace and balance, gaining a new perspective on stressful situations, building skills to manage your stress, increase of self awareness, focusing on the present and reducing negative emotions. These benefit both your emotional well-being and your overall health. The really good news about meditation is that these benefits don’t end when your meditation session ends, but can continue on with you through your day. When you meditate, you clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress.

“No one can make the images you make. This is the trueness of art. Each shape, line, symbol, and color choice is your unique expression and speaks intimately to you. This is the soul of creativity. This is the nature of authenticity. Do not be hesitant to pick up the brush or the pencil or the crayon and let it speak in your voice, for it has whisperings to share with you that will astound you.” ~ Gwendolyn

The Telling Your Story Workshop

 A Three Day Weekend Workshop

Have you reached a plateau in your personal growth journey?
If so then this workshop is for you!

In this workshop story and art bring a new perspective to the story you carry within you; the very story that informs your inner reflection and experience of your daily life.

When you take this workshop you will be invited to create your story through art, meditation, guided imagery, and dialogue.

Participants create their stories through the use of varied art materials, photographs, poetry, collage and more. The art piece you create in this workshop then becomes uniquely your own. Through dialogue, writing, guided imagery, meditation and art workshop participants will re-tell, reflect, and newly respond to their internal life script and by doing so draw a larger sense of themselves and their life story.

This workshop is an experiential exploration of one’s inner self and landscape and through the use of art allows for new perspectives to emerge and the beginnings of reinvention.

“Art is the language of the soul and this workshop offers you the opportunity to learn this inner language.”

Art is a means to explore your experienced without using the brain through words, but instead employs your rich imagery that bubbles up from inside of you during the unfolding of this workshop. One need not be an artist, but only a willing participant to be courageous enough to allow for an authentic expression using fun and inspiring materials.

At the end of the workshop each participant will take home their own unique and beautiful wall hanging.
