What you'll do

Join Spira in accessing higher states of awareness through mindfulness-based art workshops. Absolutely no experience is necessary. In fact, if you think you can’t draw but would love to create something beautiful that comes from your heart, these workshops are definitely for you. Mindfulness is sustained attention to the present moment and by practicing mindfulness, we can train our brain to stop worrying about the past or future.

Each 2-hour workshop begins with introductions, instruction on how to using the materials, followed by a guided meditation and time to create your project. The topic and finished product varies but we generally use simple materials like colored pencils, pens, sharpies, and watercolor paint.

Topics include:
Self-body state watercolor: we will create a watercolor painting representing your energetic body state. You’ll get to tune in to your body with breathwork and guided meditation and paint your vision.

Zen Doodle: we will learn the art of the zen doodling. It's easy, fun, and very meditative. You will definitely surprise yourself.

Spiritual Mandala Making: we’ll create various mandalas using a process that includes an inner spiritual journey using guided meditations.

Bilateral Drawing for healing: bilateral stimulation may help regulate body and mind thus allowing explicit memory to be reconnected with implicit memory.

My son and I had a wonderful experience doing Zen Doodling! We had a slight change of plans on the location due to circumstances beyond Spira’s control, but we ended up in her colorful apartment (loved her mural wall) and had such a great time. My son and I purchased pens so we can do this on our own too. Thank you, Spira!

This was a nice way to have a creative and interesting experience that was also relaxing. Spira gave a simple introduction to watercolor technique, and led a peaceful guided meditation. After the painting portion we talked through what I had created. Even though I’m a Boston area resident, this could be a nice break for visitors to the city.
