Exploring the relationship between mindfulness and creativity as a means of playfully enhancing wellbeing and getting in touch with living the life we always imagined.

  • Mindfulness meditation, creative writing & drawing exercises in each session
  • Exploring what having more curiosity than fear in our lives could look like, feel like & ultimately mean in our lives
  • A maximum of 14 participants in a warm, friendly atmosphere
  • Led by two experienced facilitators: Dr Lauri Bower mindfulness instructor, author and poet, Clare Belbin-Carlile artist-in-residence in Helmsley Walled Garden
  • Ideal for: beginners (to both mindfulness and/or creativity), as well as those wishing to refresh or deepen their mindfulness practice, or explore their creativity in a new way. If you already have a creative pursuit and would like to bring more mindfulness into your practice or if the ‘C’ word (creativity) terrifies you this is exactly the course for you.
