Mindful Art & Mindful Writing - Guided meditations for you to listen to and download via Soundcloud
Drawing with the Breath Meditation
This guided mindful drawing meditation is the first practice I teach on all my mindful creativity classes. It's simple, enjoyable and relaxing and can be used as a daily mindfulness practice. It's suitable if you've never meditated or drawn before - or if you have lots of mindfulness and drawing experience. This meditation is featured in my book, Mindfulness & The Art of Drawing. You'll need paper and a pen.
Mindful Writing & Journalling Meditation
This body and breath based mindfulness practice will lead you into a period of mindful writing or journalling. This guided meditation is ideal before you open your diary or do your morning pages. You'll need paper and a pen.
Loving Kindness Drawing Meditation
Using the circle of the breath and the circling of the hand as it draws on the page, this 15 minute creative loving kindness meditation will allow you to connect with your body and breath with gentleness and tenderness. You'll feel more connected and gentle with yourself, by the time you open your heart awareness to bring to mind a loved one, resting in the feelings of warmth, opening and connection that this simple loving kindness meditation brings. You'll need paper and a pen.
