Day 29: Mindfulness Guided Meditation: Drawing with the Breath

This guided mindful drawing meditation that takes about 15 minutes

Gather Materials:

  • an artist’s journal, unlined notebook, or piece of paper
  • pen or pencil
  • I listened to the soundcloud meditation file on my phone with ear buds

Today’s Exercise

Drawing with the Breath

  • Sit comfortably at a table or desk with your note pad and pen within easy reach in front of you and your feet flat on the floor
  • Click the box below to listen to the meditation and follow her instructions 

Reflections on the Exercise

  • I felt very relaxed and enjoyed the meditation up until the point when I started to draw. I found it hard to allow my breath to control my pen instead of my pen controlling the breath.
  • I would definitely do this again
  • I didn’t like switching from my dominant right-hand to my non-dominant left.

  1. My sister and I just did this exercise ‘together’ via Zoom / headphones. Was very lovely, and suuuper relaxing. As a perfectionist artist, it also helped me loosen up and enjoy the sensations of my hand and pencil moving across the paper. Thanks so much!
