first off, thanks so much for taking the time to hop over here and see what I am dreaming up, I couldn’t do what I love without the support from you folks!
That being said, I having been dreaming & scheming of an accessible way for me to share what I truly value about clay : connection. I want to share the multidimensional connection that I have with clay in order to help facilitate that for you.
Clay is how I ground & connect with the beautiful Earth we all collectively inhabit.
Clay is what my family & I eat and drink out of.
Clay is an artistic, fun, raw, playful way for me to express myself.
Clay is how I support myself & my family.
Clay is how I connect to my community, my friends & family, and also how I have crated and maintain a connection to the bigger picture. Hello Universe, it’s me Lauren.
con - nec - tion noun : 1. a relationship in which a person, thing, or idea is linked or associated with something else.
MAIK movement is
What I am looking to do is to help you create a connection to yourself and those around you through a little, easy, movement (hiking, walking, yoga, running, cycling, paddle boarding, etc.) the movement will be followed by an easy & accessible meditation, followed by clay creating.
Once we have filled our lungs with fresh breath, we will have hopefully stirred up the creative, energetic energy to make something from clay that will remind you of your intention, how you felt during the movement, an uplifting thought, a mantra or what ever you would like to impart into your clay while you work with it, then use it as a reminder when things get tough, or you just need a little boost of energy.
MAIK movement will generally be held around the phase of the new moon, this will let us align with the moon and its renewing energy during that time. Stay tuned for opportunities to join me in this evening of awareness and intention.
For now, you can check out the initial launch on January 24th for the new moon, and lunar new year 2020, I will be joining forces with Zephyr Cycle Studio to offer a 30 min spin class, then Carolyn herself will lead us through a mini meditation, we will then head upstairs into the loft to create. I will lead us through general introduction, and give clay use instructions, you will then have about an hour to create and explore. I will supply some ideas as well as examples of items I have made that support my daily awareness and intention. For more information please email me, or hop on over to :
