The Art of Fire
Join us for the second workshop in the Exploring the Elements series, The Art of Fire, to connect with your energy source/life force and to explore your passion, intention, boundaries and focus. In this discovery we will look at the following questions: What lights the fire of your creativity? What do you desire to create more of in your life? Where do you need to be clearer about your boundaries? How can your passion serve your greater community?
We will use the medium of art-making as it is about play, discovery, curiosity, engaging lightly but with full presence in the moment – so we don’t have to take ourselves too seriously as we engage with these poignant reflections.
Date: Sunday, 13 September, 14:00-16:00
Place: Zoom/your home
Price: Suggested donation is R200 – R400
*We want as many people as possible to benefit from our work, so pay what you can afford.

How it works
Gather all the art materials you can find at home. Set aside a space where you can work comfortably and, most importantly, undisturbed for two hours. We will start with a welcome and introductions. This will be followed by a guided meditation to connect with our bodies, open our hearts and feel the connection in the group. Thereafter, the invitation is to creatively engage in art-making for an hour to a curated set of music. The art-making is non-directive, meaning you can use the music as inspiration and create what you want, in the way you want. Our focus is on the process and the exploration, not the end product. We will then come back together as a group to reflect on the process and to share, should we choose to.
No previous arts experience is necessary for this workshop.

What inspires you? What do you dream of? We will engage with breath, imagination, vision, perception, the bigger picture.
