art CONNECTS #1 Lungs [23 March 2020]

An online expressive arts workshop focused on our lungs and how we could take care of them better.

Relax into art-making and take care of your lungs.

The coronavirus brings not only existential treads but also a reflection on how we live our lives. What do our bodies really need? How to take care of them in times of stress? What can be done to find more resilience and relief?

Arts allow us to stop, take a breath and reflect on what is going on in our bodies in the present moment. Through artistic expression, we can externalize feelings and reflect on our experiences. We also get a chance to look at things that stand out to us, redefine our values, and realize what we truly care about in this world. 

What is possible right now? What can we do for ourselves and others? How can we practice more mindfulness, self-care, and awareness in the time of crisis? It seems like the current situation could be a call to slow down, take care of ourselves and especially our lungs. 

In this online workshop, we will explore our breath and connect with our lungs through sound, drawing, and creative writing. No previous experience or skills needed. This workshop is for everyone.

LONGING FOR CONNECTION

Have you ever felt like the more time you spend online, the more lonely and disconnected you become? Technology has changed our lifestyle massively in many ways. While we can connect easily with friends far away, somehow we lose the depth of being with each other here and now. Online interaction can feel shallow and unreal. Sometimes, it lacks meaning and leaves us with the uncomfortable feeling of emptiness.

We believe that online connection can be used efficiently and with awareness to establish meaningful relationships with people around the world.

Let’s reconnect with ourselves and others through a real experience of art-making!In this international online meetup, participants will connect through Skype and make art together with the support of two expressive arts facilitators. We will enjoy the flow of creativity and imagination using different art forms.

The ability to make art is what we all share and what brings us back to ourselves. Art can help us to express and communicate, to listen, to appreciate little things, and to be together!

THROUGH ARTS WE RECONNECT

replace technological isolation with a true connection

relax into art-making

practice how to let go of judgement

receive the gift of true attention from yourself and others

We will use basic art materials that everyone has at home to make art and have fun together! We will focus on easy tasks and look at the art pieces in the form of a dialogue.

See you online!
Joanna
