The workshop includes the theory and practice of Meditative Art, incorporated in a basic structure of spiritual life.
Introduction to Meditative Art Theory
Each day we will have a theoretical lecture, followed by time for personal investigation. Our lectures will focus in short on the main themes of Meditative Art Theory:
Meditative Art practice and personal work
During our guided Meditative Art practice classes we will emphasis on a meditative state of mind when connecting to materials, colors and shapes. In our work we will center around painting, sketching and sculpturing. We will be learning different techniques of work and use a variety of natural materials.
Basic structure of spiritual life
In addition to Meditative Art, each day we will practice Yoga, meditation and relaxation. These will provide us with the supportive structure of spiritual life.
Our Yoga classes integrate classical Hatha Yoga with a blend of Iyengar Yoga, Yin-Yang yoga and Yoga Flow. During these classes, attention will be given to active flow of movement, deep bends and soft elongation, along with rejuvenation and relaxation. We will creatively explore relevant and significant themes such as: gravity and rooting, life energy- prana or chi, effort vs. surrender.
Practicing Meditative Art must go hand in hand with a other regular meditative practices, to grow and deepen our spiritual search.
