Tending the Inner Garden – Stitch Meditations

This 30-minute slow-stitching session is a guided relaxation technique used by artists to begin their day. The haptic or tactile activity enhance the contemplative qualities of stitch – busy hands facilitate clearing mind. It is a guided meditation taking participants to their inner garden, helping to weed out the choked inner garden, prepare the soil and plant some new seeds. No experience in stitching is necessary – just the ability to thread a needle.

Participants will sit on chairs.

Fabric and threads are provided.


Sharon Peoples is an embroiderer for over forty years and has been practising stitch meditation over the last two years. It is part of her daily practice and feels that this process has made her work day much more productive.
