ART IS THE CATALYST TO HEALING, INGENUITY AND MYSTERY!
We are living in a busy world where day to day living often brings us difficult challenges, sometimes overwhelming and too often leaving us in a state of exhaustion and frustration. We forget how important it is to self-care, re-fuel ourselves and become the persons we want to be. Sometimes we look at our challenges and wonder how things happened to us! What part of this did we bring on ourselves and what part might be circumstances or karma? Can you relate? One of the prime reasons I believe we sabotage ourselves is because we fail to recognize our wisdom in the lessons we have learned, and we repeat our patterns. Many times, we feel our journey has been thwarted, thrown a curve ball even while we are trying to be our true authentic selves. My core values include working with my hard- earned wisdom of karma. There are many misconceptions about karma being “bad”. I would like to show you how to work with karma to liberate yourself and allow the karma of abundance & well-being to redefine and ignite new ways of thinking and being!
Our Karmic Art Experience will guide you through a portal of awareness with a sparkle of hope and hint of purifying life.
We will take the journey from inside the mind and body to the blank canvas. Creating a thoughtful and meaningful experience enlightening you to unlock more of your hidden and untapped potential. This is not art therapy or an art lesson. It is an out of the box timely, radiating, clarifying, joyful sharing, allowing the MYSTERY within to manifest greater dreams and a richer life.
Sometimes it can be tough to put our thoughts and feelings into words. How can we grow emotionally and seek out new ways to express ourselves? Patricia will share a few techniques, a great deal of wisdom through her stories and provide you with a comfortable life changing experience, as she encourages us to see life through a different lens. Let us leave words behind and use paint and canvas instead! Each of us deserves to be successful not only professionally, but also emotionally and creatively.
This INTRODUCTORY event is your personal invitation to join our virtual "Tabula Rasa : Karmic Art Experience” conversation with Artist extraordinaire Patricia Karen Gagic.
We encourage you to join us for this incredible opportunity! Patricia will share her passionate stories of art, and her program details. IWF will be hosting her Karmic Art Experience with members in the near future. If you wish to focus on your self-expression and mental health register today.
Tabula rasa is a Latin phrase often translated as “Clean Slate’” in English and originates from the Roman tabula used for notes, which was blanked by heating wax and then smoothing it. The theory is that individuals are born without built-in mental content, and therefore all knowledge comes from experience or perception. Epistemological proponents of tabula rasa disagree with the doctrine of innatism, which holds that the mind is born already in possession of certain knowledge. Proponents of the tabula rasa theory also favour the "nurture" side of the nature versus nurture debate when it comes to aspects of one's personality, social and emotional behaviour, knowledge, and sapience.
