$10 off 1st class with code THANKU Drawing Meditation is an opportunity to connect to the present moment and explore drawing as a vehicle into mindfulness meditation. In this class you will learn to cultivate and connect prana (breath/energy) as the life force for mark making and discern between conscious and unconscious awareness. Drawing meditation practice helps; • promote a safe sense of self expression • explore prana (life force) • develop focus • dissolve preoccupations of a gaining mindset • cultivate joy • enhance visual problem solving • connect mind, heart body • cultivate the drishti (gaze/focus) • cultivate connection to a primal act (mark making) • enhance visual problem solving Swami Kripalu said, “all actions can become meditation; first concentrate your mind on what you are doing; second, consciously direct your prana (breath/energy) to perform only that task; third, do whatever it is you’re doing with perfect harmony and attention, forgetting about things around you. To perform every action artfully is yoga.” Drawing Meditation is also self-care for the eyes, redirecting them away from screens into natural light. To draw from observation and explore pictorial problem solving is a regenerative and therapeutic process that reconnects the mind, heart and body.
