I hope that you are all keeping well in our current times. I wanted to take this opportunity to check in with you all, and to announce an exciting project that I have been working on – for artists.
As some of you may know, I am open and keen to try anything that will help me with my creative flow and productivity. I have been intrigued by Kundalini yoga and as such have been going to regular classes (in person, live via zoom and audio yoga) Harpreet is a Medical lecturer and Neurology pharmacist who also teaches Therapeutic Yoga and has a specialist interest in burnout prevention.
Over the past couple of months, Harpreet and I have discussed the challenges we are all facing during the pandemic, in particular, how this is an incredibly challenging time for artists, as you may be cut off from inspiration, socialising and having a cut off from work. Harpreet rightly pointed out that being an artists is unique from other professions, here we are continually judged for the quantity and quality of work. We live in an information overloaded culture. As creative people, we are often unable to switch off from our work, and, the very essence of what gives us joy and peace in our life: our creative outlet, can become our burden. Where does our 'switch off' come from? These, as Harpreet pointed out, are all key ingredients to living in a state of ‘burnout’, extinguishing our creative flame and pulling us out of our authenticity.
As winter approaches, we are more prone to the darkness that comes with it. Harpreet and I have designed a workshop for artists to help them navigate the darkness, dissociation with your creative identity and authenticity.
We all experience this in many forms: self-doubt, neurosis, chronic fatigue, loss of creativity, we all experience a block, we are all familiar with artists block....
The workshop will consist of two parts.
The first, Harpreet has curated a set of mind - body - breath exercises to unwind our mind and uncoil our thoughts. Please note, no prior experience is needed. If you can sit in a chair and lay on a floor, you are good to go! We will stop for a quick break to have a drink etc and then I will lead the second half, where you and I will be working on the pieces of art we have been avoiding! We all have them, the ones that perplex us. Or, you can have a clean state and start fresh. The aim of the session is that you reconnect with your inner genius and allow yourself to flow.
Application process will allow Harpreet and I to ensure optimal workshop outcomes as we have created this workshop with the aim to help artists through lockdown and build a community of like-minded souls so that we can use this opportunity to flourish in our creativity rather than being swallowed by the darkness that may ensue.
This is our first workshop and we envision this may go over the 7-9pm time period as we thought it would be nice to have an opportunity for Q&A and a catch up. Your investment will be £24. Please not concessions are available, let us know in the application form.
Lastly, the spaces are limited, deadline to apply is 12/11/20
