UPCOMING SESSION

> 25 April 2021 MONTHLY DIALOGUES WITH ARTS [longing for renewal] |advanced group

These days, we often hear from people that they are tired: with the pandemic, with the lack of sun, with thinking of the future, with anxiety and fear, with lack of perspectives, or just too many things happening in their lives. It sounds intense! Whatever you are tired of, don’t let it take away all your energy. We are here to offer you a place of deep exploration, in which you can find new resources and experience renewal. Shed the old heavy covering and put on a new one consisting of lightness, nourishment, and bliss.

In this session, we will work with fresh flowers and the concept of empty space to create a moment of silence, in which it will be possible to hear the voice of the heart and connect to our deepest longings.

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 the 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.

We cannot wait to meet you in person,
Sarah & Joanna
