Your life is full. Perhaps you’re buzzed and thriving on it all. Or maybe you’re feeling a little dull, numbed out from navigating uncertain times.
If only you had a little intentional space to just breathe and be present — to honour the things that are going on in your life or that are tugging at your heart for attention.
Express yourself in a supportive, non judgmental, brave space, as we offer the gift of presence to one another. You will be invited to:
- Personal reflection through expressive lettering, journaling, and visualization
- Share (if you feel compelled to) and be held in community
- Listen compassionately and actively in solidarity with others who share
By sharing in heart-centred conversations and creative art expression, you’ll have opportunity to make meaningful connections with what’s going on in your heart and life, and with others in community.
All of you is welcome here, whether you’re feeling stirred to be still or to speak, whether you’re dressed and in your office, or taking zoom calls from bed in your messy bun with the camera off. Whether you consider yourself creative or not, beginner or seasoned — all levels of artists, non-artists, calligraphers, and curious calligraphers, are welcome! Even if you think you have bad handwriting, you are welcome here. Beginners and all levels of mindfulness also welcome (no prior experience necessary).
Focusing on creative exploration (and less on precise technical how-to’s), this workshop will empower you with expressive lettering as a tool for self-care and self-discovery.
Come with an open heart, ready to be present and to engage. Leave feeling lighter, with a full heart and with tools that will lead you to stronger emotional, mental, and social health.
In this workshop, you will:
Engage in an intentional space of reflection through guided prompts, visualization, journalling, and creative exercises.
Hone in on the messages your life is speaking to you.
Explore expressive lettering as a means of self care and expression.
Create your own keepsake to distill insight revealed.
Share honest conversations and create meaningful connections with others in community.
Please note that this time will be focused on creative exploration, which anyone can do! If you prefer a more technical class, there are introductory classes that may be better suited for you, which you can view here.
