You will create a mini hand woven Talisman. Using weaving and the loom (structure used to weave) as a metaphor for life, we aim to explore creatively our inner state of being. It is a process of recognising, receiving and living in harmony with our own values. Weaving a loom embodies a language of transformation therefore weaving a tapestry as a sacred amulet can be seen as the key form of conception and birth of a new life. As a practical framework, which refocuses our awareness in order to transform how we envision our lives.
As a key support, Sound Therapy is the vehicle that will allow the group to enter into a calm and receptive space. It promotes physical and emotional health. Sound waves from different instruments such as Tibetan Singing Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls, Chimes, Gongs, and Frame Drums are used in an specific order and rhythm that can create an atmosphere of harmony while assisting the body in releasing chemicals such as serotonin. Meanwhile the sounds affect ones brain wave patterns and this is reflected in a positive mood, insightfulness, relaxation, and clarity. It serves the purpose of calming the mind and moving from a rational to a more intuitive state of being.
Weaving is an ancient art that has been used traditionally in many cultures around the globe. It is a way of maintaining mental health and harmony with oneself while bonding within a group. Additional benefits of weaving are; extended relaxation and concentration, dopamine and serotonin release, sense of accomplishment, confidence, stimulation of cognitive and motor skills, release of repressed feelings and emotions and stimulate creative thinking and problem solving.
