Healing Arts At The Watermill Center

The Watermill Center presents a series of wellness workshops and guided meditations as part of its Healing Arts program that launched last year. The series, previewed in January with a Slow Art workshop led by artist Stephanie Joyce, features a roster of East End artists and wellness practitioners guiding participants through a variety of exercises and experiences amongst The Watermill Center’s collection of ancient and contemporary art.

The next in the Healing Arts series is an open-level flow class with East End yoga instructor and artist Sylvia Channing on Saturday, February 25. Channing will guide participants through the five yogic self-care principles to enliven the breath and relax the body. The series continues on April 1 with shamanic healer Mikki Baloy leading a guided meditation to tap into one’s inner creative muse, and concludes on May 6 with a moving meditation and sensory journey led by artist and healer Angela Stephan.

“Healing Arts is one of our newer programs, and we are excited to share this approach to art and wellness with the community,” stated The Watermill Center Director, Elka Rifkin. “Our Artists-in-Residence come from across the globe to experience the peace and tranquility of creating art amidst the natural setting the East End offers, and it is a pleasure to be able to invite our neighbors to experience the transformative power of art first-hand.”

Through hands-on activities with a rotating roster of artists, the local community is invited to explore the healing power of art in a communal and experimental setting. In the tradition of “Slow Art,” Healing Arts encourages participants to take a meditative approach to engaging with art, cultivating an intentional state of mind, and gaining new insights and perspectives through a shared experience.
