This experience is designed to relax all of the senses through use of essential oils, color therapy glasses, peaceful music, tactile painting methods, and a healthy plant tonic. In this way, we will “come to our senses” and be reminded of the feel good nature embedded in creating.
We will use artwork creation as the access point to tapping into the flow of being with the present moment, take a break from the chatters of thinking mind, and move towards sensing, feeling and being. We will do this through enjoying breathwork, guided meditations, blind drawing and acrylic painting that all flows into one cohesive experience.
This workshop is process (not product) focused, and does not require any artistic “skills”. All materials provided!
suggested donation: $20-$40
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR
Michael Gallagher left his role in the corporate world after his mother's sickness reminded him that life is all too short. This moved him to create heARTbreak Studios, and the business took shape as he combined his love of art with his trust in the grounding and healing abilities of mindfulness-based exercises. Michael has completed yogic teacher training courses, and has worked at a meditation studio, but most passionately devours mindfulness centered content in his free time. He combines this passion with his longtime obsession with art. Michael has both experimented with art as a longtime hobby, and has had formal art education. heARTbreak Studios is growing, becoming a collaborative effort between Michael and other experienced teachers in the yogic, meditative and art realms. His dream and intention is to make his community enjoy an art break, and use the highly accessible vehicle of art to tap into the meditative flow state that helps us through the difficult times and yields a greater awareness and appreciation for the good times.
