Five Leaves🍁Women’s Creativity Circle with Aideen Sweeney

The intention of this first Five Leaves Circle at Maitri Studio is for each participant to dive into their own presence and creativity as well as have the opportunity to share their experience in a supportive circle.

The Circle will be themed on the energies of Imbolc, the slowly emerging signs of Spring and the elements of the Celtic calendar.

Starting with meditative and awareness exercises, we will largely be exploring and creating freely with a range of natural and seasonal materials from the locality.

You will also have the option to make your own elemental drum or Celtic power shield, an object traditionally crafted by the Celts, similar to the Native American drum. (please note, this will be on circular stretched canvas, not an actual drum though you are welcome to bring a drum to design).

We will finish the session with a Red Thread Circle where each participant is invited to connect and share their experience. This is a part guided, free expression circle.

The creative process will be done in quietness with time for sharing before and after. It is my hope that this circle will be nourishing, supportive, joyful and inspiring for each participant.

£22 per person, with an early bird £18 up until end of January.

This includes all materials and the drum / shield, what you create is yours to take home.

To book your place, please contact me via Facebook or email me at and I will send you payment link via PayPal to confirm your place 🙏

About Me:
My name is Aideen and I am passionate about nature and self- expression through art & crafts and their ability to heal and transform.

My background is in teaching with over 20 years working in education systems in Ireland and abroad with students of all ages including special needs.

I’m a Mum, a yoga and meditation practitioner of over 20 years, a hatha yoga teacher, kids’ yoga teacher and kids’ mindfulness trainee. I also run art & nature workshops for children & families ('Free to Be Me & 'Treehearts').

I have practised and trained in Art Synthesis with Marie Perret ('Healing Art') for 10 years, which is a combination of meditation, energy awareness practices and painting. In this practice, we use body awareness meditation to go within and then bring out or express through image, colour & shape what is inside. These processes never cease to amaze in what can emerge from within each participant in terms of depth and transformative power. More recently I've trained to be Red Thread Circle Guide with Shiloh Sophia's Intentional Creativity Foundation and this has really inspired me to share the creative processes I practice with others with ‘Five Leaves'

Look forward to sharing this practice with you 💛
