Samadhi nai Ngan pak – Meditation Through Embroidery
Samadhi is the hindi word that describes an intense state of concentration and meditation. It is the ideal state mind that we seek to achieve when we meditate, and one way to walk this path is through embroidery.
In this workshop, Mariana Kamimura will mediate with you while using embroidery. It’s a journey in which we will find about the benefits of mindful embroidery while we practice this art together. Mariana is using breathing exercises at the same time when you embroider together. You will get all the materials to create your artwork and continue at home as well (embroidery hoop, needle, embroidery thread) Experience with embroidery is welcome, but not necessary.
