This workshop involves a guided meditation based on the tenets of Mindful Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) meditation in which participants experience a thirty-minute sensation, self-scan of ones’ own body guided by the artist. Before and after this meditation, we will draw how we feel in the body. In-take and out-take surveys will assist me in culling information about the embodiment effects on mood, personal power and creativity.

Natalja Kent is an artist based in Los Angeles, CA. Her practice investigates embodiment, movement, flaws and materiality through the expanding parameters of photography. This includes video, installation, movement, collaboration, analogue photographic printing, sound and drawing. Research and studio-process experimentation form the foundation of her practice. Collaborative/feminist/social practice output have included her participation in groups such as Mapping Feminist LA/Women’s Center for Creative Work, Assume Vivid Astro Focus, The Dirt Palace and The Good Good.
