All our Meditative Art & Yoga programs are held at natural beautiful places to give inspiration and support to our work. We are delighted to be bringing these retreats to magical locations and centers around the world.
Imagine a private island, deep blue turquoise water, starting the day off with refreshing morning yoga, each afternoon a fascinating Meditative Art practice in between lots of time to rest, read, walk, swim, explore and just be.
Connecting to the earth through working with mud is a fascinating experience, through which we can explore the concepts of shape, gravity and structure. Learn about mud and other natural materials, such as: coconut ropes, bamboo sticks, stones, wood and metal.
Using a specialized set of needles we will work with colorful raw wool and learn the process of condensing, to form a desired shape. This process of condensing will have a direct effect the wool, as well as on the artist…
In attempt to create Meditative Art, we must practice both art and meditation. We must be both artists and true spiritual seekers, in order to remain pure and in tune. We keep our spiritual progress as our ultimate goal and use meditation and yoga as its base.
Meditative Art School applies the process of creating, as a spiritual practice. Coming from the background of both the art field and the spiritual world, we combine the two together. In this way spiritual seekers can support their love and need to create and vice versa artists can utilize their creativity for inner growth.
We, Mochita and Lior, have been exploring and developing the field of Meditative Art both theoretically and practically. Building, playing and experimenting with natural materials, we gather and develop techniques for this practice. We have founded the School to teach Meditative Art in a modern way, and bring together traditional forms of meditative arts from around the globe. We are also yoga and meditation practitioners, as well as qualified and experienced teachers.
“As a participant of the wonderful, amazing growth experience at Hollyhock I would like to share that the experience helped remind me of who I really am. The art mediums that we worked with helped me remember where I shine and where I need to 'shine out'! Thank you Mochita.
