'Come to your senses' Mindfulness workshop In The Elbow


Come reflect on your being and the world at Hans Op de Beeck's art installation!

Do you want the installation of Hans op de Beeck in the Elbow Church full and prolonged experience?
And would you like to discover how much more you experience this work of art and your own experience when you slow down completely? You can do that now at In The Elbow at this mindful art experience at May 24, 2024!

Mindfulness workshop:
Hans Op de Beeck's winter waterscape invites you to take a moment to reflect. As the artist himself says:

"Water not only reflects in a literal sense, but also, in a figurative sense, stimulates reflection, reflective, contemplative thinking about being and the world."

With the Mindfulness workshop, we look at this installation in detail.
After a brief introduction and explanation, you will watch in silence while being guided mindfully and meditatively by Hester Noort. Afterwards we will exchange experiences.

What is Mindfulness?

Briefly, Mindfulness has its roots in Buddhism and is described as "paying deliberate attention to the present moment, without judgment" (J. Kabat-Zinn). Mindfulness is about the art of being present in the here and now, being fully aware of your present experience and dealing with it in a gentle way, without judgment or relevantly enjoying it fully!
