Ian Giles will be leading a Clay Meditation as part of the Member Led Workshop series. The participatory workshop invites you to collectively pause, listen and centre. Taking place in Another Reality, each participant will be given a small amount of clay to paint one another’s faces with. The clays drying time allows space for meditation.
In collaboration with Ian Giles, artist and composer Diana Policarpo will develop a soundscape to accompany the meditation. Following the workshop there will be time to share approaches that might enable our minds centre and avoid anxiety and procrastination.
