The Gratitude Gathering: Drawing Meditation Workshop

The Gratitude Gathering: Drawing Meditation Workshop
As part of The Gratitude Gathering, join visual artist Veronica DeJesus in a workshop of storytelling, drawing meditation, and reflection.

NOTE: This Drawing Meditation Workshop is part of The Gratitude Gathering Retreat, which starts the evening of Nov. 20.

To register for this workshop: click “RSVP”, and you will be redirected to The Gratitude Gathering Retreat Registration page.

Through storytelling, drawing exercises, guided meditation, a group drawing activity, and final reflection, participants will experience healing while practicing shamanic meditation techniques through drawing.

Taught by Veronica DeJesus (BFA, San Francisco Art Institute, MFA, UC Berkeley), this drawing and meditation workshop is influenced by her personal story: “Growing up my dad taught us how to heal with art. My dad wrote songs and poetry everyday all the time. My dad was teaching us the ways of Morovis, Puerto Rico: home of the décima and the cuatro, which are filled with healing ancestry connecting me and my family to Taino.”

Meet the host:

DeJesus is currently working on a project called Veronica and Her Music Works with Marc Weiss from Plastic Alto, Palo Alto Ca.
