February theme: Bloom
Focus: Orientation, setting the foundations for a mindful creativity practice + discussing creative projects
‘Bloom’ is the first of six studio-based mindful creativity workshops that make up the practical component of 168 Days of Kāpiti Magic.
In these workshops, and particularly our first session together, the focus is on you! Given that we are fresh into 2021, it’s a great time to think about how you want to get the best out of the year – what you’ll do to feel well and centred, how you’ll find ways to grow and evolve, and what you’ll do to embrace life, enjoy the small things along the way and set yourself up for success throughout the year.
In this workshop, we set the foundations for the programme. We talk about the different mindfulness techniques we’ll be exploring and how they can support our creativity and wellbeing. The group will get the chance to learn a little about each other and get comfortable with workshopping ideas and concepts as a group.
We’ll discuss the option of setting goals for your own creative project and how you can make the most of me as your facilitator, studio time, and the energy and wisdom of the group to support you on your journey. And then we’ll progress through a range of creative exercises related to our theme, allowing everyone to get oriented to studio and the garden spaces on my property.
In the final 30 minutes of the workshop we’ll be treated to a guest presentation by local wellbeing practitioner Yossarian Fay.
