Mandala Meditations by the SEA - A Creativity Circle w/Desiree East

Are you looking for a creative way to achieve FOCUS, CLARITY, & RELAXATION, while deepening your INTUITION and developing a SACRED CREATIVE PRACTICE?

Please join me in circle with the YOGA by the SEA community, as we connect with the creation of sacred mandalas through creative meditation.

Mandalas are a form of sacred geometry whose patterns could be found in natural forms, like flowers, snowflakes, nautical shells, and honeycombs. Mandalas have been used for centuries, in some sort of form or fashion, by different cultures and religions throughout the world.

It is represented by a circle, which is a symbol for life, and the creation of mandalas have been used as a form of meditation, ritual, healing, inspiration, and self-expression.

You will create your very own unique mandala creation and experience the benefits of meditation and relaxation, while exercising your creative mind and embracing present moment awareness.

You will also deepen your practice of using the power of intention to create positive changes in your life, while creating artwork that is both beautiful and meaningful.

Rise Above: Paint Your Angel Wings

rise above angel wings painting by desiree east

It’s time to paint your WINGS!! Treat yourself to a mini creativity retreat day and sink into your most relaxed, creative self. 

Please join me for an afternoon of creative possibility, based on Creatively Fit mentor, Whitney Freya's book, 'Rise Above - Free Your Mind One Brush Stroke at a Time'

You will explore PRACTICAL steps you can take to RISE ABOVE and make your day-to-day life more enjoyable and more in FLOW and how being deeply creative could be a portal to living a more inspired and joyful life.  

This is where the dreamers, the idealists and the optimists gather to RISE ABOVE 'ordinary' states of living...CREATE more of what you want in the art that is your life. 

Learn to develop your own personal painting practice and experience the transformative power of creativity. What are you wanting to Rise Above? Come with a threshold you want to cross, a new chapter you want to start. What's next...what do you want to BE next? 

You will explore meditation at the canvas by painting the energies of freedom, peace, abundance, spaciousness and expansion and also connect with your CHAKRAS to create divine feminine flow.

Where do you feel blocked? Where would you like experience FLOW?

Here is your chance to communicate to the universe exactly what it is you want more of in your life on a visual, symbolic, and colorful level. 

Tap into your creative wisdom (which has nothing to do with being good, bad or having talent) and connect with what it means to be a life artist and understand all the ways you get to create your reality.

Cosmos, Constellations, and Celestial Dreams

Cosmos, Constellations, and Celestial Dreams

Summer is slowly coming to an end, so why not celebrate with cosmic showers, constellations, and celestial dreams? One of my favorite meteor showers, The Perseids (produced by comet Swift-Tuttle and radiating from the constellation, Perseus), is due to peak on August 12-13th. I thought that a lovely sunset painting session would be the perfect way to greet the night sky - then, you could go home take a cat nap and wake at midnight for the best viewing (up to 60 meteors per hour...ahhhhhmazing). 

Please note, this is a private event.
