Art and Mindfulness are interdisciplinary fields that can enhance and compliment with each other. Representation such as drawing or writing can be used in conjunction with mindfulness to enhance or access self-knowledge. This course focuses on the exploration of the potential relationship between mindfulness and representation and will introduce to participants ways of mindfulness practices through creative drawing, writing and body awareness exercises.
