Cultivating awareness through the activities of yoga, meditation, artistic exploration and spending time in nature is the main aim of this week’s program. It´s learning to bring awareness to what you’re experiencing in the moment throught the senses, or whitnessing the state of mind via thoughts and emotions.
This will be possible not only through yoga and meditation, but through drawing landscapes or anything else in the wonderful nature of Hvar. Participants will also be able to develop their drawings into a mandala, a circular geometric pattern, which they may use to aid their everyday practice of mindfulness.
