Clay Circle with Robyn from Orenda Ceramics

1.jpg

When is the last time you took out time for creative play? 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. Join Robyn, from Orenda Ceramics for a nourishing Clay Circle where we will work with our hands, our natural artistic tools, to build vessels for intentions. The space we hold is sacred time to connect to our individual creative centers, exploring and entering into States of Flow.

“State of Flow" is a state of being where the ego falls away and one surrenders to the moment in complete immersion with the activity. Each action, movement and thought flows with ease from one to the next. Your mind and body enter into a dance of synchronicity. In this flow state, our mind quiets, dopamine and serotonin are released and our inner critic is silenced. Our imagination is free to explore and expand to courageously step into our potency.

Creativity is the underlying nature infusing all of life, is our true essence and life force. In the session, we'll use Kundalini Yoga to drop into our body, clear our mind and stimulate our creative life force energy. Like yoga helps to stretch our consciousness through movement, play helps our creative energy flow.

Together, we then set intentions and turn to clay to build them into a physical form. Hand building clay vessels, we will fill them with out intentions to serve as a container for our creative selves - physically, emotionally and energetically. Each intention will be sealed into the vessel when in the firing practice in the kiln.

Throughout the experience, we'll draw on the lessons we can learn from clay's incredible journey of transformation and how we too, can unlock powerful, small shifts within ourselves. If we were able to enter a state of flow more freely, what impact would that have on personal and collective wellbeing? How might we experience more out of life?

The workshop will include:
- 1 personal handmade ceramic vessel
- Intention setting to plant the seeds for our creativity to grow
- Kundalini Yoga and meditation
- Unblocking limits to creativity
- Connecting with earth energy through clay work
- Explore the power of small shifts for transformation
- Spend time with play, having fun with our inner creative child

"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
