FIBER FRIDAY with Mary Ann Gebhardt: The Mindful Rhythm of Knitting and Crochet via ZOOM!

Discover the profound healing power of knitting and crocheting with Mary Ann. Experience each class as a journey towards relaxation and freedom from stiffness. Just like learning these crafts, developing your own unique style takes practice and dedication.

During each session we will uncover the therapeutic benefits of gentle hand and shoulder movements, specifically targeting the muscles we rely on the most letting you immerse yourself in the meditative practice of knitting and crocheting, guided by the soothing sounds of Tibetan singing bowls.

During one of the most hectic times of the year we encourage you to embrace the opportunity to slow down, find a seat, and bask in peaceful tranquility while your knitting or crochet project rests in your hands.

Join us for this transformative three-session series, where each session builds upon the knowledge gained in the previous one. While participating in all three sessions is recommended, you can still appreciate the profound benefits of Mary Ann's guided meditation by joining any of the sessions.

How to prepare for class:

Find comfortable seat in your home for the class and we will discuss how to set up a relaxing space in the beginning of the session. 

Bring along any current project that is meditative in nature or select one of Mary Ann's suggestions for a new project.

Message from Mary Ann:  "I look forward to seeing you on Zoom. Cultivating a practice of patience, compassion, happiness through knitting & crocheting mindfully." and a favorite quote she shares:

“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there.”
