Satyama earned her degree in Art and Art History in 1996 from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario. Since then she has had many shows including City Hall in Kitchener, Ontario, the Public Gallery and Masterpiece Gallery in Guelph, Ontario, Bean Scene in Kelowna, BC and Okanagan College in Vernon, BC. In 2009 she studied meditation and energetic yoga in India. She saw how her style changed and improved using meditative technique to paint more intuitively and colourfully than ever before. She now teaches meditation and intuitive painting methods to assist Westerners in becoming more free, creative and focused on their artistic sides.

DESCRIPTION: This painting Retreat combines meditation, music accompaniment, art and guided visualization exercises which will stretch the mind so that you may become more productive, creative, and successful in any painting you choose to make, no matter what your painting experience.
The integration of the principles such as being in the moment, being able to “let go,” detachment from perceived outcomes, being in the flow, and creating one’s life consciously will be intertwined while we learn different painting techniques to add to your repertoire.
