A retreat for art, yoga, and mindfulness!

At Lake Logan’s Mandalas and Movement Retreat, led by Mary How and Julie Mayson, participants will learn the basics of mindfulness practices and the benefits of combining art and yoga for mindfulness. You’ll learn practical mindfulness skills and leave feeling energetic yet peaceful about starting your own practice at home.

Evenings after 9:30 PM will be free for continued personal retreat or social time with other participants.

Program Lead Mary How, MA, ATR-BC

Mary How, MA, ATR-BC is an artist, board-certified art therapist, and emotional wellness coach with 20+ years of experience helping people navigate deeply emotional issues with art, creativity, and love. In her coaching and skills courses, Mary uses a unique combination of cognitive restructuring, mindfulness, and art to help people overcome painful life experiences.

As an artist, Mary uses mandalas, or sacred circles, to move healing energy within her work and the world around her. She creates mandalas of varying sizes and forms, including pens, acrylic paint, chalk, and natural materials. She makes small mandala circle drawings with fine point markers in her daily meditation practice. Mary also facilitates community-based art installations by creating extra-large mandalas alongside community members to teach skills and bring healing to her community.
