The Mindful Artist: Why We Meditate to Create

  • The Retreat Event Space 12115 Spectrum (near), The Retreat Event Space Irvine, CA, 92618 United States (map)

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 beginning on August 26th in Irvine, CA from 6-7 PM.

Each meeting (held on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month) will vary but generally this is how it flows: 

  • Intros & intentions (10 minutes)
  • Guided opening meditation (15)
  • Creative writing prompt: Journals available or bring your own (10)
  • Break off into partners and share our work (that day's writing prompt, developed stories, paintings, etc) for feedback (20) 
  • Closing thoughts (5)

Join a lively group of writers, yogis and startup founders who come together to let our creativity flow in a welcoming and calm environment. To maintain this environment and ensure open sharing, group size will be limited to 10 members.

Journals, snacks and beverages will be provided. We will be meeting at the event space called The Retreat in The Park Apartments located right off I-5 and I-405. Guest parking is free and plentiful.

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 for entrepreneurship sites as well as on my website. With a Hindu upbringing and a longtime practicing Siddha Yogi, I have been meditating since I was a child. Meditation has most recently helped me stay focused and push past a lot of self-doubt as a writer. When I couldn't find a group pairing meditation and writers in the OC area, I decided to start The Mindful Artist to help and connect with others. Please join me for the inaugural meeting!
