Art Therapy Workshops

Art Therapy Graphic
This monthly Art Therapy Workshop does not require any previous art experience.

Angela will take you on a journey through the creativity that lives naturally within us all. Travelling gently with your inner vision using meditation and expression, you begin to trust your own navigation system.
Creating a safe place is important, being truly you is important, being at peace no matter what appears in your life is important. And utilising Art Therapy is one thing that invites you to let go and trust in you and the life that’s been gifted. I look forward to meeting you.

Life With Full Attention

This is an eight week course exploring what it means to be fully alive moment by moment, no matter our particular circumstances.

It is a practical course in mindfulness, a quality that enhances all experience, whether mundane or extraordinary.

There will be a mixture of input from the course facilitator, Dharmamodini, time to explore that content with one another in discussion, and opportunity to share our experiences of trying out different approaches to living life with full attention, week by week.

The focus of this course is how to put mindfulness into practice in the actual conditions of our individual daily living.

Facilitator: Dharmamodini
Dharmamodini (Sanskrit for “she who rejoices in the Dharma”, that is, the Buddha’s teachings) is an ordained Buddhist who has been practising meditation and mindfulness for over twenty years and teaching these ways of living for ten years. She is also in her seventh year of facilitating the Meditation Group at CCC on Wednesday mornings and will soon commence a Tuesday evening Meditation Group at CCC.

A Soundbath Meditation with Heather Frahn is a deeply relaxing and restorative, sound and music based experience to therapeutically enhance mind, body and spiritual wellbeing.

Heather’s sessions may also feature aspects of meditation, mindfulness, sacred song, chanting, positive affirmation, and spiritual music. Invite your peace and calm to press your “pause button”, to gift yourself YOU time, relaxation and inner nourishment through sacred sound meditation. Following the Soundbath Meditation will be time to connect and reflect with a light snack and cup of tea until 8:30pm.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ – DUTY OF CARE: By attending and participating in this Soundbath Meditation it is assumed that you have read and understand the Disclaimer and Contraindications outlined here within.

Disclaimer:
Individual Sound Therapy Treatments and Group Soundbath Meditations are considered ‘energy medicine’ and work with ancient concepts of health generally from Vedic, Asian and Aboriginal cultures. Energy medicine helps promote spiritual and physical wellbeing, and is suitable for most people. Sound therapy, sound massage, sound relaxation and sound healing treatments and group sessions offer a profoundly deep relaxation for the body and mind, and can help reduce tension, stress, anxiety, depression, pain, and dis-ease in the mind-body system. The treatments and sessions can help promote wellbeing, vibrancy and health for body, mind and spirit, and bring the many physiological benefits of the ‘relaxation response’. Sound therapy/healing/massage treatments and Group Soundbath Meditations are complimentary to orthodox treatments and/or medications being taken. Sound Therapy products or services do not intend to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease, nor to replace the advice of a qualified healthcare professional.

Contraindications:

Exceptions: The following conditions may be treated with sound with caution. Please let Heather know if any of the following apply to you before participating in a Soundbath:
Metal plates, pins or joints in your body;

  • Prone to anaphylaxis, and require any life-saving medication to be administered, example an EpiPen;
  • Pace maker has been fitted;
  • Recently had surgery.

Limitations: We are sorry to advise that if you are diagnosed with any of the following health conditions that attending a Soundbath may not be suitable for you without written consent from your medical professional. If any of the following conditions apply to you please discuss it with the centre or Heather prior to attending the session:

  • Epileptic seizures that are sound triggered;
  • Any other seizures that are sound triggered;
  • Mental health conditions including extreme paranoia, paranoid schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, advanced psychosis;
  • If you are less than 3 months pregnant, and in your first trimester (there is no evidence to suggest that Sound Therapy may harm an unborn child – this point is simply because Australian Professional Indemnity Insurance policy laws stipulate that women less than 3 months pregnant or within their first trimester shall not engage with natural or complementary therapies, and are not covered within the policy terms and conditions).
