Do you wish to open yourself to the flow of creation, to dive into your physical and emotional bodies through the act of putting pen to paper, hands on clay, paint on canvas?

Meditative Art is a method of cultivating a mutually held container in which participants can create from a place of complete nonattachment and meditative flow.
In the act of creating, we intentionally turn our attention inward to the mind body connection, the internal journey and the organic flow of the process, letting the tactile experience of creation be at the center and the final outcome incidental.

What to expect:
We will open with a group check in and discussion, where we all drop into where we are and share a little part of who we are and what we’re coming to class with today.
Then, we will dive deep with a meditation offering to call us into our bodies, free us up for creative expression, and set our intentions for this sweet time of unlocked creation. The artistic offerings will be diverse week to week; working with every medium from the simplicity of colored pencils and paper to sculpting clay or working with paint.

We will end class with a closing circle, starting with an opportunity to share what we created and what came up for us during class, followed by a gentle song, chant, or other vocal calling to free up our voices to express and settle into the freedom we found together in class.

This class follows a gentle yoga practice and gong sound bath, we recommend coming to both if your schedule allows. There is hardly a sweeter way to come to this practice.

Shanita King began offering Meditative Art sessions as a practice in 2011, for fellow staff members at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies. This practice begin and evolved from an individual spiritual practice and journey within her heart chakra. King moved to Portland, Oregon a year later and began offering this healing practice throughout the city at various community and healing spaces. King has been practicing yoga for 17years, recently completed a 200 yoga teacher training, has a background in Thai Yoga Massage and is currently studying Anatomy in Motion from the SOLA School of Contemplative Arts.
