“Art and Mindfulness: a conversation with Dr. Pravesh Budram”

Listen here…

Show Notes


In this week’s episode of Mindful Conversations with KAY, Kelly and Kristi spend time discussing the fascinating connection between art and mindfulness with Dr. Budram, an educator and art therapist from South Africa.

Listen in as they explore:

  • In art, like in yoga and life, it is the journey, not the destination that matters
  • Art as an experiential mindfulness practice
  • How creating art is similar to creating yoga postures
  • Art as a way to build concentration muscles while also encouraging free-form expression
  • Mandalas as a visual representation of being centered and balanced
  • The importance of reflecting on your artistic experience once a piece is completed
  • How different forms of art encourage different forms of thinking
  • Zooming in and zooming out to change perspectives
  • Embracing the idea that imperfectly perfect is better than perfectly perfect
