Olson is offering three classes in partnership with Macon Creek:

This 7-week course is an introduction to Arts + Mindfulness practices and a group encounter with Julia Cameron’s new book, Seeking Wisdom: A Spiritual Path to Creative Connection. This course is ideal for those who are interested in exploring the creative arts as a contemplative practice and will include some gentle movement, drawing, weekly readings, daily journaling, and group discussion.

2) Moving Inward : Explore mindful awareness through music and movement
This weekly class incorporates elements of therapeutic music, yoga, Dalcroze Eurythmics, Authentic Movement, and other gentle movement practices.
