Description

The repetitive task of dot making has been a cross-cultural form of meditation for thousands of years and is the basis for the development of The Dot Method, a viable art therapy intervention for anxiety symptom relief. In this workshop, you will learn about a first of it’s kind quantitative exploratory study that investigated repetitious dot-making as an effective anxiety reducing technique and was the recipient of the prestigious Gladys Agell Award for Excellence in Research given out by the American Art Therapy Association, in addition to experiencing and learning this mindful tool.

What are the benefits?
• Engage in hands-on, mindfulness-based art experience that is conducive to inducing a relaxation response
• Learn new art therapy method, called, The Dot Method for stress and anxiety relief, mindfulness and concentration
• No previous art experience or skill is necessary. All art supplies are provided. Just come as is.
