Nov 4th, 2021 by oxfordmindfulness
In this keynote presentation, listeners will receive an overview of the neurobiology of mindfulness, and how this relates to a brief history of the use of art-therapy for healing in clinical and non-clinical settings. Listeners will also be introduced to the neurobiology of viewing abstract art, as it relates to stress reduction in clinical and non-clinical settings. Sará shares information on her work - the development of the first awareness-based educational program and study "Art and Awareness As A Catalyst For Collective Healing" being launched at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in February of 2022. A short art-based mindfulness practice is also offered.
