Rituals in the Garden
Art For Change, Progress & Healing
By engaging the senses in nature, the Ritual in the Garden workshop uses beauty and natural arts to help attendees reconnect to self, release stress, and stimulate positive perspectives.
Studies have shown that interacting with nature through physical activities, such as gardening, can help reduce stress and improve physical and mental health (1). Exposure to natural environments has also been found to reduce anxiety and improve mood (2). Additionally, physical exercise can increase self-esteem, reduce stress, and improve overall mental attitudes.
Our three part series, Ritual in the Garden, will incorporate sound frequency, visual arts, and movement to help attendees explore their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing while cultivating and expressing respect and appreciation for life and our environment.
Sound Frequency: We sound frequency, such as music and words, to help attendees relax and enter a meditative state. The music and words will be carefully selected to relax and inspire attendees while encouraging positive thinking and self-reflection.
Visual Arts: We incorporate active crafting activities to help attendees explore their creative side and show their appreciation for life and our environment. Attendees will be given materials to craft a unique piece of art that expresses their feelings and emotions.
Movement: We incorporate movement, such as yoga and dance, to help attendees explore their physical and mental wellbeing. We will lead them through a number of yoga poses and basic dance moves to help them relax and connect to their body.
Overall, our goal is to create a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment for attendees to experience internal physical and spiritual harmony and stimulate interest in sustainable balanced living.
Series workshops are friendly to solo and group participation.
All events are free, open to the public. Workshop will be held at the Houston Botanical Garden due to its rich, natural environment. The space resonates with energy conducive for emotional processing. Through the garden, series participants will leave feeling rooted, ready to bloom for another day.
