Mindfulness is the art of living in the present moment without losing focus on the future. It is a way of paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally. Mindfulness provides a unique perspective into our minds unlike other theories or disciplines. Mindfulness as Psychological Capital aids creativity, immersion, and appreciation in a unique way within arts practitioners.
This mini workshop will introduce you to the scientific evidence of Mindfulness and how its practice will help arts practitioners embody art through Mindfulness. The participants will get to practice mindfulness, appreciate its theoretical foundations, the myths surrounding it and appreciate how it can help Arts Practitioners.
