In The Rain

Meditative Art & Yoga Workshop

10 days of silence and deep practice in nature

with Mochita Har-Lev and Lior Cohen

 

In this retreat we will dedicate ourselves to an inner and quiet time of practice. We will make use of the rainy weather for that which it supports most – retreating. Surrounded by the beautiful forest, we will tune ourselves into nature in order to enjoy, learn and grow.

We will focus on introverted and deep meditative practices: Yoga – Meditation, Asana, and Pranayama (breathing exercise), complimented by Meditative Art practice and theory classes.

Workshop Contents

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, together they help us grow and deepen our spiritual search.
