Participants are introduced to mindfulness and positive flow state-of-mind as they develop pride, confidence, empathy and tolerance, while expanding their perceptions and increasing brain connectivity through visual and cognitive stimulation.

Inspired by Perry’s work, participants will craft their own autobiographical story on the surface of a decorative vase.
