Workshop No. 1 

From Within: 
The Essence of Being

As the year draws to a close, it’s time to take a pause and get in touch with our inner essence. In this workshop, we unlock the very first door to our inner development journey - 'Being'. 

Amid life's busyness, we often get caught up in the whirlwind of "doing" and forget the art of "being." This workshop helps us nurture our inner authentic selves and cultivate a deeper connection with our thoughts, emotions and physical presence through creative expressions. Gain resilience and the power to remain present, intentional, and non-reactive when facing adversities. 

Let’s create a moment of reflection and renewal as we set the stage for self-discovery and intention-setting, drawing inspiration from the realms of art, nature, and aesthetics. 

What to Expect

This two-hour workshop will take place in a virtual setting, offering you the convenience of participation from the comfort of your own space. Here's what you can anticipate:

Interactivity: Prepare for an interactive session that encourages active engagement and participation. You won't be a passive observer; you'll be an essential part of the co-creative experience.

A Space for Being: Our workshop will provide an open and safe space for inner exploration and the restoration of equilibrium. It's a haven where you can slow down, reflect, and reconnect with your essence.

Low-Skill & High-Sensitivity: No prior artistic expertise is needed. You'll engage in creative activities that are accessible to all skill levels. These activities are carefully crafted to heighten your senses and awareness.

Embodied Knowing: Experience embodied knowing as you connect with your body, mind, and soul through creative expressions. This holistic approach encourages self-discovery and self-empowerment.

Intermodal Transfer: Explore the transfer of ideas and experiences between different art modalities (image, sound, movement, etc.). This intermodal approach allows you to express yourself in a way that resonates with your unique preferences. 

Nature-Based Elements: We incorporate nature-based elements throughout the workshop. You'll find inspiration from the natural world to further nourish your body, mind, and soul.

Aesthetic Experience: Immerse yourself in an aesthetic experience that activate your senses and enriches your well-being. This workshop is not only about art; it's about creating an atmosphere that nurtures your entire being. 

This workshop offers you an opportunity to deepen your self-awareness and discover the richness that lies within you.
