Mindfulness Practices Through the Labyrinth and Art

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 801

In this introductory workshop, participants will explore the use of the labyrinth as a tool for developing mindfulness. The use of art exercises will tie in a cognitive approach to life assessment and goal setting. These cognitive and mindful experiences will be integrated through the creation of a personalized hand labyrinth depicting participants' experiences, which can continue to be used long after the close of the workshop, as well as a model for clinical practice. Workshop participants will experience the amplification of goal-oriented results through the combination of modalities, including art, mindfulness, movement, and music.
