Meditation and Mindful Drawing
There is a calm place that we can access when we carve out the space.
In this place, time seems to disappear. Ideas seem to flow and the breath eases as we draw. As we return to the page again and again, and form simple marks and lines, something inside begins to open. A different approach to understanding, a deeper kind of listening, a gentler way of being.

How Meditation Drawing Works
What happens in my Online Mindful Drawing Circle?
We exist in an interconnected web of life. Each week, we come together on Zoom to share our desire to take time out, to slow down and to rest. We all create the magic that allows our marks, doodles and drawing to emerge on the page. My Meditation Drawing Circle is crafted to allow for the greatest ease and relaxation. Read more HERE.
We start with a short meditation that allow us to tune into our own sensations and bodies and recognise the energy that may be present in the transits. I then guide the session by suggesting repetitive mark marking or creative exercises. These drawing practices engage your brain in enough activity to keep you focused and concentrated, and the slowing and focusing on the breath allows the nervous system to take on a more parasympathetic or tranquil position. It feels so good when we are all in that state of relaxation – an opening occurs.
My Meditation Drawing Circle is about coming together in a supportive group environment. We sync our nervous systems and draw together. The workshops are set up for you can do it anywhere – office, library or home. You can grab a cuppa, eat your lunch or simply take time out to engage in the drawing exercises. As each months’ drawing exercises are themed, often tapping into the natural world around us, you can also purchase a month at a time.
After sessions, participants often report feeling more grounded, more open to new ideas and more able to cope with the stresses of life. This gentle and effective technique is also a great alternative to those who struggle with traditional meditation.
What people say about Meditation Drawing Circles?
I really enjoyed the session yesterday. I loved how you named all the ridiculous thoughts that might be running through our minds – like I’m not good at drawing ripples! And I loved how it changed from the meditative to the creative so effortlessly and wonderfully.
I’ve been through a big life change recently and bizarrely for me (someone who usually has a million projects on the go) I spent a lot of time colouring in. It seemed to be the only thing my brain could manage.
The doodling meditation feels like a lovely transition to something a little more creative yet still absorbing and relaxing.
