The Mindful Artist: Grateful Living

  • The Retreat, event space in The Park Apartments 12115 Spectrum Irvine, CA, 92618 United States (map)

Hello Mindful Artists!  

The focus for our seventh session (and FINAL session for 2015) is about how to live in a state of gratitude no matter what life throws our way. Oftentimes, we don't realize that we already have everything we need and to get more of what we want, showing gratitude for what is presently in our lives can have a powerful way in how we go about achieving our goals. Check out the sign up form and agenda below. See you there!

Stuck on finishing your novel or painting? Too afraid to start? Looking to connect with mindful and passionate folks? All are welcome!


It's time to create and meditate! Calling all creative folks, new as well as seasoned, to join us for The Mindful Artist, a free event in Irvine, CA from 6-7 PM every other Wednesday of the month.

Each meeting will vary but generally this is how it flows:

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: My name is Mini Mukherjee and I'm an OC newbie looking to bring together cool creative folks in the area. I have a background building and working for startups, and now I write uplifting and motivational short stories on my website as well as for entrepreneurship-focused sites. With a Hindu upbringing and a longtime practicing Siddha Yogi, meditating has been a daily practice since I was a child. Most recently, meditation has helped me stay focused and push past a lot of self-doubt as a writer and artist. This made me wonder whether others were dealing with the same challenges. When I couldn't find a group pairing meditation and creative writing in the OC area, I decided to start The Mindful Artist. Feel free to shoot me a note anytime at themindfulartist [at] Hope to see you at our next session!
