Meditation, Art, Storytelling for Older Adults
MAS is a safe virtual space where older adults can engage in the healing arts to cultivate a practice of being good to themselves. Through the use of meditation, arts, and storytelling older adults will use these mediums to explore historical and immediate traumas deeply rooted in ones subconscious mind and body. Through the healing arts older adults will re-imagine what is good, restore the best parts of themselves and recreate a sense of being. This project will emerge into a quilt story circle. MAS is about creative expression to usher in healing to live more fulfilled.
