We appreciate loveliness in the unconventional and the modest. Wabi-sabi is a state of mind, a way of being. It's the subtle art of being at peace within yourself and outward to your surroundings.

What two stories will this face tell about where I am, how I feel and imagine as possible. Or create a mask as an Animal Exploration (additional class dates and fees will be necessary).

Whether for fun, celebration, or introspection, you will be asked to listen to your thoughts and allow ideas and inner promptings to flow easily into being visions breathed and recognized through your mask. What ever the reason for the mask making, a guided meditation and journaling opportunity can be part of the session
