Touch the earth with love! When we place our hands on natural materials and enter into the mystery of the creative process, we access our connection with nature and our own inner wisdom. Join us for a walk in the woods where we will create artwork using only objects from the forest floor and a mindful awareness of the environment.
The workshop will begin with a short introduction and brief viewing of images of earth-based art, followed by a walk to the area where creative works will be constructed. We will begin with a grounding outdoor meditation and conclude with a sharing session, where participants have the opportunity to ask questions and share inspirations. Please bring a camera or smartphone to document your ephemeral creations, all are welcome.
