Welcome to the 7 Chakra Art Series
We invite you to be curious, to ask yourself what the energies in your chakras hold for you, what themes and ideas might be connected to them, and what these energies might look like for you.
Join me and my dear friend Georgina Marie as we explore and experience the chakras in many creative ways.
Each of the workshops includes a guided meditation, a series of writing prompts, as well as a guided drawing process.
The workshops seeks to offer a holistic way to learn about and experience the Chakras that includes the body, mind, and emotions, and will allow you to learn more about yourself through the lense of the Chakra system.
The idea and science of Chakras comes from Ancient India, and it might be difficult for some people to really grasp what it is all about. This is why we invite you to experience and explore the energies of your Chakras, instead of just talking about them.
We will begin each session with a short guided meditation to tune into each Chakra from the inside, feeling where it is in your body and how you experience that part of yourself.
Also, we will play with the color of each Chakra in an easy, abstract drawing exercise with elements of the Neurographica Method. This can help you to express the inner experience with simple shapes and lines. Through the drawing, you gain an emotional understanding of the Chakra, how you feel about it, and what kind of associations are connected to it.
And, we will gently open our minds to allow words to come through and describe the connection that we made with the Chakra. Through writing, we can gain a mental image, we ask questions and find concrete answers.
With the help of all these different practices, you can grow your individual understanding and experience of your own Chakras, getting to know yourself in a new and deep way.
