Art & Impermanence  

Embark on a contemplative journey of self-discovery through the power of art. We invite you to engage in artful reflections on impermanence in these sessions. Investigating our creative intuition, we’ll explore the profound beauty and humanity in life’s most difficult moments. 

What to expect:  

Meditative Art: immerse yourself in meditative and creative sessions, expressing your feelings, emotions and sensations around impermanence, life and death  

Shared insights: create a shared space for sharing your reflections and insights with a community of like-minded individuals.
