About the Event
An evening to explore meditation, art and the connection between them.
An evening of self exploration through different media.
We will take our guests through the concept behind art and meditation and the benefits that combining the two can bring.
Evenings are themed to help you on your journey but we leave it up to you how you like to fill things is.
There will be a guided seated meditation with Laura from The Mat Sanctuary and from this we will start drawing. Beginning to reflect what you feel on paper. Wether it be a blue blob or an intricate mind landscape.
Everything is possible. Nothing is wrong, but if needs be, Artist Fouad Hammoud wil be here to guide you.
You will have ample time and opportunity to reflect and pour your experience onto the canvas.
We will end the evening with a closing circle for those who may like to share.
This evening is one for creative self exploration.
We are not therapists and this is not art therapy.
You do not need experiance in Meditation or Art.
All materials are provided but you are free to bring your own.
Tea & water is included in the price. Other drinks can be purchased on the night.
Promt start at 8pm but more flexible ending at 9.15 ish if you want to draw a bit more or just sit with it....
Looking forward to welcome you here.
A bit more about Faoud (you can find Laura's Bio: HERE):
Fouad Hammoud is an Egyptian illustrator based in London.
Working by day in the creative advertising industry as a Creative Director, Fouad is an illustrator by passion, who enjoys drawing intricate details of cities and landscapes. Before that, Fouad focused his work on surreal illustrations made of flowing patterns and detail, always attempting to tell a story.
Through art, Fouad finds a sense of calm and a therapeutic release with his drawings. Spending nights drawing intricate details became a form of relaxation and reflection; a space where his creative flow can happen without interruption in order to allow a conscious-free self exploration.
This self-taught practice is something Fouad now wants to share, alongside the reflective powers of meditation.
