In our next Monthly Dialogs with Arts, we will focus on the theme of Rain and Sea. What can we learn from the arts through an exploration of those two phenomena? How can we connect to their symbolic meanings and create new ones for ourselves?
Rain is a natural phenomenon, vital and life-sustaining. There is no life without water. There is no life without rain. Rain can symbolize rebirth and emotional cleansing. In some cultures, it is a symbol of relief and happiness. In others, rain symbolizes sadness, rejection and despair.
When it comes to the sea, it is a symbol of calmness, peace, spirituality and emotional balance. It can also be a symbol of internal strength. The moving sea waves can describe or reflect one’s feelings. Turbulent stormy sea waves can depict the inability to control the situation, confused state of mind and/or emotional disturbances.
As we get participants from all over the world, we will experiment more with various time options. Our next online expressive arts meetup will take place on October 12th at 6 am (DE), 12pm (HK), and/or October 25 at 3 pm (DE), 9 pm (HK). We invite you to connect with us and experience the true power of art-making!

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 from 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.
We cannot wait to meet you again,
Sarah & Joanna
