Meditate Paint Post
Why Meditate Paint & Post?
We all come to meditation for different reasons. Some of us want to reduce stress or help deal with anxiety. Some people want to develop greater focus and concentration. Others, want relief from negative self-talk and thoughts. Some come to meditation to learn how to handle life’s conflicts and challenges in a more skillful way. The benefits of mindfulness are many. See my story here and how meditation changed my life.
We all come to meditation for different reasons- to reduce stress, help deal with anxiety, develop greater focus and concentration, relief from negative self-talk and thoughts, or to learn how to handle life’s conflicts and challenges in a more skillful way.
One thing I often hear from students in my mindfulness classes and programs is a sense of coming home to themselves- feeling more present and grounded in their lives, more connected to themselves and others, and more acceptance of life.
Meditate Paint Post offers you all the benefits of mindfulness and more. By adding in the painting component, we further deepen our connection to ourselves and the present moment, allowing our creative nature to flow from authenticity.
what’s the deal with creativity?
It’s not just about art and design. Creativity is one of the most important qualities we share as humans. Unleashing our creativity allows us to flourish, to remake ourselves. It creates massive amount of activity in our brains. Here are some of the ways creativity influences us:
Strengthens critical thinking
Cranks up productivity
Promotes positive thinking
Helps see the big picture
Helps in decision-making
Promotes logical reasoning

Watercolor Paint, Paper, Brush, Water
If you have supplies at home, use them. I’ve suggested links below to make it easier to order online. Feel like driving? Head to your local art store. Your local drugstore might also have a set of watercolors and index cards. Most watercolor sets include one brush but make sure to check.
Our intention for the class is not to create a “work of art.” We want to engage in the creative process to further deepen our ability to be in the present moment. With the paint and brush, we simply allow whatever is present, whatever is within, to emerge.
I’ve purposely suggested paper that is relatively small as we won’t have extended periods of time to work on the painting process. Use what’s comfortable for you.
