Frequently asked questions
What is "An Intentional Creativity Workshop"
And can I bring one to my Yoga Studio/ Community Center/ Home ?
"An Intentional Creativity Workshop" is a community experience born out of my personal Art, Yoga, and Trauma studies that began in 2009. In this workshop , we spend 3 hours exploring Creativity & Yoga in integration, as tools for transforming patterns into power. Grounded in the container of the yoga mat and the notebook, we will cultivate a brave space to ask the questions:
How do we choose to show up and express in the moment?
How do you consciously and unconsciously communicate what you stand for?
Shakti is the Sanskrit concept of Earthy feminine potential inherent in all layers of life itself. When we pay attention, we can tap into union with this force, and channel Shakti toward manifestation into the here and now. This is the true meaning of manifested ‘Unbound Potential.”
In this workshop, within the Yoga pracitce & Art medium of your choice, you will have the opportunity to offer up a physical, mental, or emotional pattern as fuel into the fire of creation, setting an intention toward the alchemical process of transformation.
It is only by acknowledging and accounting for our experiences, our personal and cultural narratives, that renegotiation of the future and reframing of the present can authentically evolve.
It is only within a community dynamic that healing, on the small, large, and systemic scale, can occur.
The result of this process will leave you with pages of Art, meant to stand alone as a token of the experience, and/or to inspire you in the larger context of your work.
This workshop is intentded for all humans open to exploration!
Participants are asked to wear loose comfortable clothes for momevent, and to bring along a notebook and art supplies of the medium of your choosing.
