My current workshops are called “Free to Be” and are curated to restore, be playful and explore your inner world. Your sense of curiosity, nerves, experimentation, trauma and authentic self are welcome and I hold a judgement-free space for expression. “In your workshop I reconnected to myself - your art class is a gift for the soul!” - J.R.M, Workshop Participant What to expect Each workshop includes: A warm welcome and check in with tea and aromatherapy to stir the senses Nourishing breathwork to regulate the nervous system Mindful movement to engage heart, body and mind coherence Grounding Ugandan rituals Sound healing to create deep relaxation and calm Introspective writing exercises to reconnect to your intuition, wisdom and desires Meditation to plant the seed of your artwork Creative exploration to express your authentic self in art.
