Boat Trip Art Class & Meditation
This session begins with a Guided Imagery for opening up inner-beauty awareness. Everyone is beautiful inside and out, no matter what! After the Guided Journey, there is a plan for your body creation. This is an all-day event ending with a sun-down barbecue and closing meditation.
Darlene did face painting for many years, and one day said, "It would be so fun to take a large roll of parchment paper outside...then we could cover our bodies with paint and roll down a hill perhaps, across the paper! That would be another kind of body art, hahaha!" So, that is what happened, and with that began the flow of the body painting classes. Some classes are held outside in nature, and others are held on a boat, as you will read about next. This is usually a seasonal class, however here in California the weather permits it to be an almost year-round event.
It is a class to get messy, and allow for artistic flow. Many of the sessions involve going out on a charted boat, on which after the body painting, one may go out in the ocean for a swim, to rinse off (all paints are vegetable based, echo and body friendly; being non-toxic to the environment, and to your body). There are also choices in paints; including black-light paint, and you will be shown airbrushing techniques as well. It is suggested to bring a bathing suit and clothing which may get full of paint, and a dry change of clothing (there are private showers and dressing areas on the boat, for changing before the barbecue).
After the painting portion the session flows into a late afternoon sundown barbecue, ending with an early evening Guided Imagery Meditation (and any Hypnotherapy upon request of the group), before returning to shore. The buffet is all-organic, non-GMO, vegetarian, and the menu is provided prior to the event, so you may include any additions if you wish. Plan on a feast though!
This class is set up to have fun, create, meditate, and enjoy Mother Earth. Handouts, art supplies, boat fees, and culinary buffet are included.
