Introduction to Mindfulness Through Expressive Therapies

Professional and Personal Development

In this highly experiential weekend workshop, you will learn multiple approaches to developing mindfulness and expressing self-awareness through creative arts activities. Mindfulness is defined as "paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally" (Kabat-Zinn, 1994). For most of us, our surrounding culture in our developmental years trains us to be externally focused, and to re-visit or regret the past and worry about the future.


There are many ways to step into the present: in this workshop we explore somatic focusing, gentle movement, emotional awareness, observation of automatic thought processes, as well as ways to use the senses to arrive in the moment.


Practice with the activities, observing and sharing internal experiences, and integrating through visual art, claywork, and use of miniatures, provides confidence for both our personal quest and support of others. Mindfulness practice has been shown to lead to increases in wellbeing and therapeutic presence when we are supporting others.

Facilitator Dr Mark Pearson. 9am - 4.30pm each day. Fee: $520.
