SOULSCAPING - "When you feel truly alive"
SoulScaping is the art of using your imagination and our creativity to discover who you really are.
This first session involves you creating a piece of art inspired by a time when you feel truly alive.
You don't need an artistic bone in your body to do it (I promise!). (Just the ability to worry. If you are good at worrying you will love this...)
Over 3000 people have created Soulscapes. From orphans in Zambia through to 230 people at Microsoft. I've been doing this through the lens of a leadership development workshop with companies for over 15 years. There are tons of benefits from doing this as a group practise including:
- Developing the power of your attention
- Realising the power of your Imagination
- Freeing up the power of your creativity
- Connecting authentically with others
I am now offering online SoulScaping workshops via Zoom for groups of 8 people.
NEXT ZOOM MEETING:
When: Sep 23, 2020 02:00 PM London
Register in advance for this meeting:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Please read this through, and it will give you a first impression of what we will be creating together. We will be doing a slightly simplified version of this, in that you only need simple art materials.
Please have a journal and pen ready, and look at the art materials list below.
Ideally you have paint and paper, your fingers and cloths… the rest is a bonus.
ANY ART MATERIALS WILL DO. Pens, paper,.....anything… We need to be resourceful in these times :)
See if you can find these art materials in a cupboard or attic somewhere, or local shops have most of this!
If not, I've included amazon links.
-A cup of water (for paints)
-Jay (cleaning) cloths to paint with (way more fun!) If you don't have any under your kitchen sink, then something like this.
(If you really get into this, i'll show you a couple of other SoulScaping kits made of other art materials, including what I use!)
For this session, I normally don't let people know what they are in for, but have to to certain extent to get things prepared for the online version. Please come with an open mind, and a little patience as I'll be getting used to the tech side of things (namely.. How to use a zoom room!).
On that, please make sure you have access to a reliable internet connection! :)
The timing outline looks something like this:
Introductions - 5 mins
How do you feel about creating? - 5mins
Looking at an artwork - 10 mins
Group visualisation “When do you feel truly alive? - 5mins

It's ideal to set up your tablet or laptop next to your art materials, and make sure you roll up your sleeves, and cover your painting area with paper or table cloth, so you don't get paint on your favourite or table!
Turn off notifications on the device you are using too.
I look forward to seeing you online!
