Here is a trailer for the 'Mandala Mindfulness.' The video workshop is aimed at beginners and investigates mindfulness and mandala drawing as a means towards artistic expression and self-development.

This online course looks at how habits shape our lives. Habits of action and habits of thought. It considers how education trains a very particular mode of thinking that is at odds with creative thought. It introduces the idea of the elephant, the rider and the path, to understand how the unconscious, the conscious mind and one's environment collaborate to form habits. It will also look at the practice of journaling and how it can be used to help you hack habits. Expect a little movement and meditation too!
This live workshop will focus on listening, sound, and inner and outer awareness. It will involve a little singing or humming, sound healing instruments (gong, Tibetan singing bowls etc.), meditation, body percussion and some neuroscience, (specifically bringing awareness to various nervous system states.) It will also be a bit of fun!
The majority of workshops will be made available online but a selection of workshops (e.g. Deep Listening) will happen once a group of interested participants are formed and restrictions allow outdoor gatherings.
