Tracing the Energetic Body: Meditation & Art-Making

  • Daya Yoga Studio 360 Jefferson Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11221 United States (map)

Please join Visual Artist Alice Shockey and Art Therapist Robyn Olds for an afternoon of guided meditation and art making in collaboration with Daya Yoga Studio.

Exchange // 35$ (30$ early bird)

We invite you to develop your creative process as we lead you through a body tracing exercise that will help you to visually map your meditative experience. This map can be used as a play space to explore what colors, images, and sensations arise in the energetic and physical body as we fluctuate between a guided body scan and clairvoyant grounding meditation, and creative art-making. We hope that you’ll be able to walk away with a new understanding of how embodied meditation and visual art can be integrated into your daily lives.


Robyn Olds, MPS, LCAT is a New York State Licensed Creative Arts Therapist and Advanced Reiki Practitioner. She received her master's degree in Creative Arts Therapy and Creativity Development at Pratt Institute and her advanced Reiki training at Maha Rose Center for Healing in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. She has been combining both of these modalities in monthly groups devoted to exploring the healing potential of visual Intuition and image making in Reiki treatment. She also leads I Ching art groups exploring synchronicity and archetypal patterns.

Alice Shockey is a Visual Artist and Reiki Practitioner. She graduated from Oberlin College with a BA in Studio Art and received her Reiki level 1 and 2 Attunements at Maha Rose Center for Healing, where she also leads Art Themed Community Reiki. During a Healer Mentorship with Lisa Levine, Alice began to combine her visual art and Reiki practice, exploring a creative process of image making that emerged more from the body directly than from the mind.
Alice has suffered from Lyme disease since early childhood, and it wasn’t until she began practicing Reiki and integrating it into her creative process, that she found empowerment and confidence in her ability to heal. Alongside her partner and Creative Art Therapist Robyn Olds, Alice is currently holding workshops in Brooklyn that combine Reiki and embodied meditation with a body tracing exercise that visually maps the individual experience.
