There are a thousand miracles hidden within each day…
Remember when you saw the world as an enchanted playground? As adults, we can feel stuck in our day-to-day responsibilities, losing our connection to the magic of the world. But, as children, we were natural mystics, with an instinctive, spirited devotion to the interconnectedness of everything. Without thinking, we would delight in the grass under our feet, the buzz of a bumblebee, the feel of mud between our fingers.
The Kindergarten Mystics workshop, with Mellissae Lucia and Rachel Ford, invites your inner child out for a day of playful adventure, where you will learn to tap into and reclaim your essential, joyful innocence and imagination.
During this day-long playshop, we will explore embodied creativity and experience the world. We will spend the day engaging in elemental arts and crafts, lively outdoor miracle (treasure) hunts, and more. Held in a cloistered wonderland within the city, Mellissae and Rachel are your guides to awakening your uninhibited enthusiasm and raucous sense of fun as the pathway to expressing your true essence… the heart of the mystic’s path.
In this workshop, we will:
- Learn a framework for how to “read the world”
- Practice techniques for interacting with the natural world, to awaken your magic and be more confident in recognizing hidden messages and signs
- Participate in creative projects that get you out of your analytic, adult mind and stimulate your natural delight
- Loosen up and spend time in light-hearted exploration of your inner mystic
All participants will leave with souvenirs from their adventure, as well as practices and tools for sustaining a sense of wonder and instinctive knowing in everyday life.
Creative and adventure materials will be provided, as well as snacks. Bring your own sack lunch, kindergarten-style (cheese stick, apple slices, and juice box, anyone?) and wear your outdoor grubbies because we’ll be interacting with the world like you did ‘back in the day’.
