Nature is our true nature
Workshops, classes, and community events offering opportunity to engage in movement explorations to connect to the elemental aspects of ourselves.
Ephemeral Nature Mandala ~ 4 to 6pm, Thursday August 8th at Hadden Park, 1905 Odgen at Maple streets, unceded Coast Salish Territories.
I’m excited to offer this participatory art event as part of the VINES Art Festival ~ please join me in co-creating an ephemeral nature mandala in the space of Hadden Park, a space of trees adjacent to the water of Snauq (False Creek).
Sense the topography of the land; notice how the land undulates toward the water. What bodies of water are close to your heart? What is your wish for water? Consider the prevalence of plastic – can we remove plastic from our daily experience?
In a contemplative way, we create a textured pattern with plant materials (petals, twigs, cones, leaves). How does direct contact with plants, with our environment, invite us into a deeper expression of care?
