Activities

CREATING FROM THE RIGHT BRAIN

Join Youhjung’s workshop to gain a better understanding of the roles your right and left brain play in your thought and creative processes and try out a technique that taps into the right brain, subconscious, and intuitive expression. When you engage in activities that are not tethered to logic or reason, you can access a depth of creativity and manifestation that is often obscured by thought. Draw with your non-dominant hand and shape clay with your eyes closed. Marvel at what you can create when you don’t over-think it. No art skills or experience necessary. All levels are welcome to this non-judgmental space of free expression. 75 MIN|$75

COMPLIMENTARY

GUIDED VISUALIZATION AND ART

Participate in a guided visual meditation that can help you detach from the stress of daily life. Youhjung’s lecture also gives you a chance to make a piece of art with watercolor painting and drawing. Take your creation home with you as a reminder of the power of art to impact your life, deflect anxiety, and improve your outlook.

An Unforgettable Canvas

Tap into your creative spirit by using the side of a horse (that’s right, a horse!) as your canvas. We use a living canvas to remind us to stay present and grounded in our storytelling. Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, and bring a hat, sunscreen, and water bottle. Note that this can be a messy experience. 2 HRS|$75 Seasonally offered April through September.

MINDFUL MANDALAS

Mandalas can offer a greater understanding and integration of conscious and subconscious thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Discover a new way to find meaning and perspective in the present moment and throughout your life. Create your own mandala and bring its grounding and centering energy home with you. 2 HRS|$95
