Music Assisted Mindfulness by Bonnie
Join Mindfulness Coach Bonnie in two group music assisted mindfulness sessions to engage in an inner journey into yourself, who you are, what wellspring of resources you can tap into and capture to heal yourself from the inside out. Allow her to assist you in exploring
that inner world of feelings, symbols, metaphor, memories and visions of who you could become in and how to manifest what brings deep meaning and healing for you. These 1.5 hour mindfulness sessions employ Western classical music, relaxation techniques and images/colors to help each person connect in their own way with the music and what it has to offer them from a healing and supportive perspective. Each session closes with a debrief and further processing via
mandala drawings which help to capture each person’s unique experience and personal journey into themselves.

The Artful Mind by Amanda
Steep yourself into the creative hands of Amanda
as she leads us in a workshop that will help us tap into the healing power of the creative arts to promote self-expression,
self-exploration and self-discovery. She is a skilled artist and teacher who loves to employ art in a mindful way to help
deepen our connection with who we are, what inspires and fills us with joy and play as well as how art can be used to heal the wounded
parts of our self and being. Like Bonnie, who employs mandala art work as a form of art therapy to further amplify and enhance any
images or experiences evoked during the music and mindfulness sessions, Amanda uses art to help us to become more mindful and in the
moment with ourself. When we engage in art of any form, the mental chatter stills and we are just in the moment with t
he creative process and our creative muse; affording us the opportunity to connect with our own self of self and expression in a real and authentic way.
