Meditation and Creative Expression

Bulmba-ja Arts Centre

Join Elizabeth Hunter in an exclusive guided meditation and creative expression activity within the NorthSite gallery.

This 45-minute guided meditation invites you to connect and reflect on your body, mind and inner thoughts.

Artist Elizabeth Hunter (trained in Transcendental Meditation and Art Therapy) is a skilled meditation facilitator and will create a secure environment for participants to connect with their internal state.

This progressive meditation session will start with a bodily check-in, allowing for full relaxation before moving into a meditative state of mind.

Following the guided visualisations and meditation which will provide openness, inspiration and insight for participants, we will then move into a creative activity.

This activity will involve drawing images or making notes upon paper, bought about through the meditative experience and the artist’s guidance before passing these messages into the either.

Afterwards, you are invited to share your experience with the group if you wish.


These two activities are designed to enhance people’s transpersonal experience and creative expression as we embrace the Day of the Dead. During this period the veil between the living and the dead is believed to be its thinnest.

It’s a period that involves family and friends gathering to pay respects and to remember close family members and ancestors who have past.

It’s a time to be aware that death is our constant companion, and if acknowledged and embraced, the time of passing in our last rite of passage is one not to be feared.

Meet in the Main Gallery Room for an exclusive guided meditation experience surrounded by Elizabeth Hunter’s retrospective solo exhibition, il cranio carta.

What to bring
In celebration and remembrance please bring a flower and a photo of a loved one who passed.

Artist Elizabeth Hunter sits in front of her shrine cross-legged with her hands on her knees. She is wearing a black top and black cardigan with patterned black and white pants. The shrine behind her has a large pile of hand-made sculls and candles in red candle jars light up the polished steel walls that form the shine. Larger tall candles are placed on the floor at either side of the shrine.
