Connecting with your Creative Self for 2019
Find you inner creativity with Orenda Ceramics.
What does creativity mean to you?
How do you tap into your unique creative potential?
Do you have a great ideas, and dreams but have been unable to actualise them for yourself?
When is the last time you spent feeding your creative self?
In 2019, we welcome Creative Living. How would it feel to unlock the creative spirit inside of you? Letting it run wild and free across our lives - business, family, relationships, thoughts and ideals. Creativity is our true nature. Yet it needs caring for, nurturing, time set aside for it to grow, expand and breath.
Join Orenda Ceramics for an afternoon of creative play with clay. Together, we'll spend time and open space to connect to our inner creative source. When is the last time you let you creative self flow freely? Inner artists exist in all of us, waiting for the permission and the space to be set free to create.
We are all inherently creative beings, the life force that runs through us is creative energy. To allow this to flow more freely, we need time to play. Just like yoga helps to stretch our consciousness through movement, play helps our creative energy flow. Over the session, we'll use this active meditation to nourish ourselves and our creative resources, understand what holds us back and how to step forward.
After we tune into ourselves with pranayama and guided meditation, we'll set intentions for our creative selves for the year to come and embark on our play with clay for the remainder of the afternoon. We go back to our most primal source - our hands, our most natural and powerful artistic tools. Each one of us, hand-building a clay vessel, filling them with the our intentions and building a foundation for our own creative selves - physically, emotionally and energetically. As we do so, we'll draw on the lessons we can learn from clay's incredible journey of transformation and how we too, can unlock that in ourselves with gentle steps for powerful shifts. Each vessel will be a symbol to hold our intentions, personal magic, mindset, and voice.
Together, we will unlock the power of Creative Living.
You will leave the afternoon feeling a new opening, a sense of creative freedom, connection and power to carry with you throughout the year.
Throughout the afternoon we will:
Connect to the Earth energy, our primal, animalistic and instinctual center through clay work
Use Kundalini and Pranayama meditation to go deeper into our creative source
Use intention setting to plant the seeds for our creative potential to grow
Work with the 4 elements to build our intention into our clay vessels
Understand the power of small shifts on our journey of self transformation
Spend time with play, having fun with our inner creative child
Each participant will:
Build a personal handmade ceramic vessel to serve as an Talisman, an ongoing reminder of the creative source in all of us
Spend 'creative play' to connect to their inner artist
Discover their blocks to living creatively
Connect to their intention to be fused into the vessel through firing
"The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves." Carl. Jung
*Orenda Ceramics will manage glazing and firing following the event. Finished ceramic pieces will be available for collection at She's Lost Control within 4-6 weeks.
