“I believe there is an artist in each of us.  We are storytellers and allowing our inner artist to explore and play, in turn allows us to heal, connects us to others and leads to wholehearted living.”  -Ellen 

Meditation and Art Classes: Open Summer 2018

Come take a deep breath and play!

This guided play course welcomes anyone to take a pause and connect with their inner creativity. We will be exploring art as a process rather than a product, using watercolor and other drawing materials. We will have tea, floral essences, and stones for inspiration. This class will have light meditation along with guided play. There will be moments of silent examination to respond to the materials at hand. Sharing is not required. The main focus is creating parallel together in a safe environment.
