Rescheduled for Monday, November 28

6-9 pm EST


Online via Zoom

Join me, and other creative seekers,  on Zoom, from wherever you are, to shine the light of your own creative wisdom on the potent question:

Centering with the Mandala

‘Mandala’ is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘sacred circle’ or simply ‘circle’. Discover the gentle power of creating a personal mandala to invoke centering and integration.

Creating within a circle invokes a sense of wholeness and invites us to connect with our essence.

You can revisit this meditation again and again, through the recording, whenever you are seeking a centering experience.

Even as a person who is well-acquainted with the benefits of working within the mandala, I received a genuine benefit from being guided through a teaching and a time of creative expression by Kathleen.

This workshop will include:

  • An introduction to the theme
  • A nature-based practice
  • A guided meditation
  • Art-making time
  • Writing prompts and writing time
  • (Optional) small group witnessing and sharing
  • (Optional) Large group sharing
  • Extracting a nugget of wisdom to take, as a practice, into your life

Consider each workshop a mini-retreat.
You will be exploring on your own, while supported by a skilled guide and a creative community. You can choose whether, and how much, you share and engage with others.

“The self-care of an Expressive Arts workshop with Kathleen becomes care for the world by some beautiful alchemy that brings the benefits of the session beyond the personal to the global. Mend and heal the self. Mend and heal the world.”  A recent Art as a Healing Practice workshop participant

The session will be recorded (except for the personal sharing). 

I originally created Art as a Healing Practice twenty years ago. It emerged organically out of my own personal practice of blending guided meditation, visual art, and writing. Working with these modalities in sequence was, and is, a powerful part of my own healing journey, and, at some point I began to shape it into a form that I could share with others. I have offered this body of work live in the studio as individual sessions, series, and retreats. I have crafted it to an online format, and a self-study workshop series. I have had the privilege to witness its powerful effects on many.  Along the way, I have continued to refine and shift it. Over this past inward-focused year, Art as a Healing Practice has been incubating within me. I have had the sense that I was preparing for a new version.  I trust the period of incubation as an essential part of the creative process. With the coming of spring, I am happy to say it has finally emerged, and I am ready to share it with you.  – Kathleen Horne, MA, LMHC, REACE, REAT
