Join us for 30 Days of Free Mindful Art.
Introduction to 30 Days of Free Mindful Art
Day 1! 30 Days of Free Mindfulness! Intentions.
The theme today is ‘Intentions’. Intentions are different to goals as goals tend to be more action focused. Intentions are linked to our life values, what is important to us, how we want to be. ‘Kind’, ‘compassionate’, ‘living in the moment’, that sort of thing.
In this session we set intentions and invite you to set your own intentions, for the 30 days of Mindfulness. Please do tell us your intentions and share your images with us by using the hashtag #stopnoticecreate on twitter, on instagram and facebook. We also take you on a guided mindful meditation and invite you to create an image expressing anything you noticed in the mindful meditation. We really would love to see your images and hear your intentions!
Day 2! 30 Days of Free Mindful Art! Hopes, experiences and challenges of Mindful Art.
Sherelle talks about being new to Mindfulness. Setting her intentions for the 30 days. The challenges of Mindful Art she faces and her experience so far! What is your experience of Mindfulness? Are you new to mindfulness? What challenges in your mindful practice do you find? Let’s see if we can help!
How would you rate your current wellbeing? 0-10? What are your intentions for these 30 Days of Mindfulness?
Day 3! 30 Days of Free Mindful Art! Impermanence
Today we look at the mindful theme of ‘impermanence’ and play with water! Grab a piece of any old paper, a bit of water and some essential oils if you have some, no worries if not. Impermanence is all about being OK with the fact that pretty much everything in life changes. Just like the art work we make in this video, it drys and changes. It is out of our control and that is OK.
Day 4! 30 Days of Free Mindful Art!
Today we talk about the 7 Pillars of Mindfulness; Non-judging, Patience, Beginner’s Mind, Trust, Non-striving, Acceptance, Letting Go. We use a heart breathing meditation to send thoughts and love to all those who need it, thinking especially of all the people involved in the devastating Grenfell Tower fire.
