Classroom on Zoom & Visualization Symbols

In this five weeks teaching, creating, meditating, visualizing... Students and Instructor were meeting at Zoom. Total four projects completed within five weeks. We introduced the idea of using specific Symbols to contemplate, meditate and harness their own internal wisdom and creative powers.  It was conducting in the beginning of the each workshop and the end of each session.  The idea is using collective consciousness to support the group, yet the individual had their own creative flows during the visualization  

   Here are some of the symbols and classroom snapshots.
