The exercise is the first activity of the workshop, and it helps participants to release the mundane concerns of their daily lives and prepare them for the deep inner exploration of the workshop. Artists may create variations on this exercise using a variety of media. To use the spiral drawing as a meditation tool, simply trace the spiral with a finger going in the direction that coaches want to go, and while they are doing that, meditate on their intention for reaching out or going within. The wonderful thing about the sacred spiral exercise is that the spiral drawing makes a perfect centering meditation tool that can be used after coaches have completed the exercise.
