Art of Stress Relief: Workshop 3/9


with Jeannine Burgess

Calendar Mar 9, 2019 at 3 pm, runs for 1 week

The unmistakable image of a mandala, circle, or life wheel, is a representation of the universe through the use of sacred geometry. Throughout history and around the globe these images have been used as an act of worship or meditation. Often used as a calming practice for its creator, mandalas are meant to conjure emotions and energetic responses from the viewer. Each piece may resonate with a certain thought, emotion or physical sensation. Presented by artist and yoga teacher Jeannine Burgess, whose own mandala exploration has quite literally, brought her life full circle; combining her mutual loves for decorative painting and healing. In this workshop, Jeannine will lead you through some meditative techniques which calm the nervous system as well as open up creative potential. There will be additional information provided on the energetics of sacred geometry patterns and how they can be used to compliment a relaxation practice. Using watercolor paints, pencils, and pastels on an original template drawn atop the Flower of Life, you will be able to create your own 12x12" mixed-media expression of the universe. This experience is for adults who want to tap into their own creativity as well as calm the body and mind... or for anyone who wants to play with shapes and colors! Allow your subconscious to surface, and create in a safe space for personal expression.
