Creative Consciousness™ offers a series of workshops for teens on a journey of exploration, inner-strength, self-discovery, and authentic expression. A unique combination of art-making, story-telling, and holistic practices to inspire a creative culture of light-workers and peace-makers.
During this workshop, students will map and explore the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual self as four unique parts of the whole. Students will become more aware of themselves as their capacity for understanding their own identity is expanded. When children are given the vocabulary to conceptualize this idea, and a framework that they can navigate, they are better equipped to manage their own heads and hearts.
CLASS #2: PEACE: HOME AND FAMILY LIFE
ART PROJECT: CHARACTER SCULPTURES
During this workshop, students will connect with their roots, and learn to ground themselves in Peace and Stillness. They will learn to balance themselves, even in the midst of hard work, noise or chaos. When a young person begins to practice consciousness and self awareness, they make a more intentional contribution to the whole.
CLASS #3: KINDNESS: AUTHENTIC FRIENDSHIPS
ART PROJECT: ART ABANDON
During this workshop, students will explore the thoughts that flood their heads and the emotions that flood their hearts. They will find the seeds within themselves that need to be watered, and the weeds that need to be pulled. They will learn to honor their own worth. They will learn the importance of protecting their space and tending to their garden, so beautiful flowers will grow. When children learn to flow instead of force, what and who is meant for them becomes much more clear.
CLASS #4: GOODNESS:
INNER STRENGTH AND CONFIDENCE
ART PROJECT: STORY COLLAGE
During this workshop, students will discover differences and commonalities, gain invaluable perspective, become inspired and empowered, connect through story, and experience the power of radical empathy. Students will learn how to find the inner strength and courage to move their energy in a positive direction. When we share our stories, we empower others to do more, see more, and be more.
CLASS #5: PATIENCE: SELF-LOVE
ART PROJECT: BEADING
During this workshop, students will learn practical tools for being more patient with themselves, and a practical approach to accepting and loving themselves fully. Students will consider their intention for 2019, practice simple meditation techniques, and explore self-care, mental-health, and wellness.
CLASS #6: GENTLENESS: SPEAKING YOUR TRUTH
ART PROJECT: PRAYER FLAGS
During this workshop, students will be inspired by historical world leaders of peace, integrity and truth. They will understand that this practice is intended to bring benefit to all by quietly harmonizing the environment, increasing happiness and love. Students will learn practices that will help them to become more proficient at standing in their truth.
CLASS #7: SELF-CONTROL: CALMING YOUR MIND
ART PROJECT: WEAVING
During this workshop, students will explore global goals in order to recognize privilege and speak out against injustice. Students will also learn techniques to calm the mind when they are overwhelmed and stressed by the world. When young people have a world view instead of a neighborhood view, they have a more realistic sense of reality, and a greater ability to put their own experience into perspective.
CONSCIOUSNESS: IMAGINATION AND DREAMS
ART PROJECT: VISION BOARD
During this workshop, students will explore their motivation, inspiration, and guiding truths. They will have a framework for transforming their heads and hearts, and tools for manifesting a life that is profoundly beautiful. Guided by their own personal insights, students will create reminders of peace, gratitude and grace. Students will use this as a foundation for clarity and purpose.
