"Each woman has potential access to Rio Abajo Rio, this river beneath the river. She arrives there through deep meditation, dance, writing, painting, prayermaking, singing, drumming, active imagination, or any activity which requires an intense altered consciousness. A woman arrives in this world-between-worlds through yearning and by seeking something she can see just out of the corner of her eye. She arrives there by deeply creative acts, through intentional solitude, and by practice of any of the arts."
Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype
Every act of creation is sacred. The arts allow us to express, consciously and unconsciously, what we cannot find the words to say. Whether it is self discovery, play, engaged creative mindfulness or spiritual exploration and expansion, we are here to support you on the journey.
At Mindful Creative Art we help you explore using mindfulness and contemplative practices through exploring and tapping into your intuitive, inner artist. The emphasis isn't on formal instruction, but on allowing, experiencing, noticing, connection and developing an open channel within for a stream of consciousness, intuitive experience through mindfulness, meditation and contemplative practice.
A couple of big changes are happening in 2022. First, we are changing our name to The Institute of Contemplative, Intuitive and Transpersonal Expressive Arts! Second, we are doing much more live, virtual workshops, moving online courses to a new platform! Watch here!
