Pathways to Awakening is a three-person exhibition including the works of Susan Newbold, Heidi Lewis Coleman and Stephanie Joyce. The works are meditative environments inspired by nature and sacred geometry. A variety of materials have been incorporated such as mylar, wood, Japanese rice papers, cut steel and Indian block prints. Working collaboratively, the artists’ studio sessions began with meditation and yoga, which opened the flow of creativity and the artwork took shape and form. In the spirit of yoga (which means to “yoke” or join) a Coptic-bound artists book was created for the exhibition, each artist exploring new mediums and finding their own pathways to awakening.

Mediation Workshop with Monica Rao
In this workshop, Monica Rao will spend the first 15 minutes sharing her personal story as well as how participants, through meditation and spiritual healing will engage with hands on experience and group discussion. This interactive hour long workshop will help participants find inner peace and inner silence in a way that the mind will endeavor to eliminate unwanted thoughts. The goal is to help everyone who is involved to find a state of a mindful, intuitive, fulfilled, grounded, joyful state of being. Ultimately, she aims to help people alleviate themselves of stress, anxiety, and illness so that they are able to find their inner talent and happiness.
