Would you like to find your inner calm through meditation and creating art ?
This four week course, on zoom, runs on a four weekly basis and is aimed to bring you back into the present moment, relieve anxiety, stress and far and allows you process your inner feelings. It is a gentle course where you use your breath, meditation practice and the use of mantras to find inner stillness in your life. This is followed by a visualization to help bring you into a space where you are open to create and express your feelings through art. Please note, and this is very important, you do not need to be an artist or have any experience in art. Just a willingness to allow your thoughts, feelings and emotions appear on the page in whatever way or format you choose without concern for the outcome. The connection between art, meditation and visualization can be a very powerful tool to enter into a state of relaxation, self-acceptance, compassion and awareness.

(Testimonial – I cannot recommend Deirdre highly enough. At the moment I am attending her on line Meditation/Art Class each Thursday and I love every minute of it. It is a lovely mix of meditation, relaxation and art. You need not be great, or even good at drawing/painting. Through this method of drawing etc., I am learning a lot about myself and my needs right now and it is a very freeing experience. Deirdre has many gifts….healing, counselling etc not to mention kindness and caring, and I’m so thankful to be part of this class) Pauline Daly.
