Looking to foster your creativity and enhance your relaxation at the same time?

Join in for a unique and immersive experience in our “Harmonious Creation: Art and Sound Therapy Session.” In this workshop, you will embark on a journey of self-expression and healing through the combined powers of visual and auditory arts.

The session begins with an introduction to mandala art, an ancient form of circular art known for its therapeutic and spiritual significance. You will be guided through a meditation and the process of creating your own mandala. This art form, known for its intricate patterns and vibrant colours, serves as a mindfulness practice, allowing participants to explore their creativity, while finding inner peace.

As the mandalas take shape, the session will transition into the sound therapy segment. Here, participants will be provided with a variety of accessible instruments, such as Tibetan singing bowls, drums, chimes and rain sticks. These instruments are chosen for their soothing tones and ability to resonate with different energy centers in the body. Participants will be guided to ‘sound out’ their art, creating spontaneous music that reflects the patterns, colours and emotions depicted in their mandala.

The fusion of art and sound therapy offers a powerful medium for emotional release, stress relief and personal insight. No artistic or musical skill is required. All materials will be provided.
