1st Chakra Mandala Painting Playshop

Location: AOMA Mind-Body Center, 4701 West Gate Blvd, Austin, TX 78745 - Classroom E1

From: January 7, 2017 at 1:00pm to: 4:00pm

Details:

Eight consecutive Saturdays dedicated to bringing the light of creativity
to stimulate and harmonize the chakra system. We will paint chakra
mandalas for each of the seven main chakras of the body, and have an
integrative summary practice on the last Saturday. Chakra mandala
painting will be approached as a meditative practice using conscious
intuitive process painting. We will integrate guided meditation,
visualization and aromatherapy to support painting sessions toward
depth and awareness. No experience is necessary in painting or in
chakra knowledge, and all supplies are provided.
This painting playshop is for adults, and is held in an atmosphere of
respect for individual expression and process. We ask that there be no
critiques, comments or criticism about the artwork created during the
playshop. Art Playshops provide a safe space for exploring creativity to
support wellness.

Terri McGee is a creativity facilitator at Austin Art For Wellness. She
creates and facilitates art playshops that offer adults a process oriented
approach to painting. Similar to meditation, process painting provides
the opportunity to discover depths of Being beyond behavior patterns of
the mind, restoring holistic connectivity and harmony from within. Terri
has explored the painting process as a way of cultivating intuition,
conscious awareness and inner development since 2003. In 2012 she
began designing integrative painting playshops to help others access
the nurturing benefits of creativity. She studied inner development
“evolutionaries" like Jean Houston, Craig Hamilton, Claire Zammit, and
Katherine Woodward Thomas, as well as many others. She also
trained in intuitive painting with Michelle Cassou, the author of “Life,
Paint and Passion” and “Point Zero, Creativity Without Limits”.
