Stand, stare, take your time and maybe find some inner peace.
When you wander around a gallery, stop to look at the paintings and sculptures that catch your eye, and focus your mind on their artistry and detail, you're doing something mindful — even if you don't really think of it that way. Where better to roam, look and train your brain to only pay attention to what's happening at that very moment, aka the technique that's at the centre of mindfulness?
If that sounds easier said than done — or, if you need some help starting at the pieces rather than getting distracted — that's where Art in Mind comes in. Part of The Big Anxiety Festival, it's a morning session that's all about slow looking. Stand, stare, take your time and maybe find some inner peace.
Taking place at 9am on October 27, it's the perfect way to start the day if you can score a late start at work. Mindfulness teacher and creativity consultant Steve Pozel will lead the class, teaching you about meditation and other techniques, their usefulness in engaging with art, and their greater use. Afterwards, there'll be tea and chatter as well.
