This mindfulness art card is also available as an A4 print - £15 https://folksy.com/items/6881342-A-forest-of-neurons-illustration-of-self-A4-print-on-matte-archival-paper
This piece created itself after some meditation sessions and listening to some talks on the idea of the "self" as an illusion.
There is a sense of cautious exploration of an illusion that cannot be captured or made tangible. The structures are reminiscent of the architecture of the brain.
The most tangible and solid parts of our identities are the external representations of them through our clothes and possessions.
The childlike, open curiosity of mindfulness practice and self compassion lets us accept and experience it but we can never step outside this magical and mysterious illusion.
This is a card for someone on an internal journey of exploration, whether triggered by trauma or opportunity or both. Send them a little something to say you understand what they are going through right now.
A6 card with envelope.
