A nonprofit organization, The Minerva Institute guides individuals on journeys of self-discovery through a profusion of workshops, classes, and events focused on igniting inspiration and strengthening well-being. Through meditative breathing exercises, participants aim to balance energy intake and expulsion in the BreathWorks workshop. Based on the principles of Pranayama, the art of calming emotion through slow, controlled inhales and short in-and-out breaths, the workshop encourages relaxation and heightened focus, energizing students and imbuing them with the confidence that they will never again have to forfeit when challenged to a breathing contest by a blowfish. During the six-week The Artist's Way series, a once-a-week workshop based off Julia Cameron's eponymous book, local writer Janna Benge leads students through a variety of motivational exercises and arms them with self-awareness tips to break down mental blocks and to awaken dormant creativity.
Those interested in 365 days of self-discovery can enlist with Minerva and sign up for a one-year membership to receive 20% off all programming fees, e-news updates, and scholarship opportunities.
