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 we all speak of, 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. We will cover ways to break free from form representational painting and move more into the abstract. We will also learn how to use painting as a way to discover and manifest one’s true desires in life.
You will need at least 3 medium to large sized canvases, and /or heavy paper (such as watercolour) that you can paint on, a paint thickening agent like a gel medium or molding paste, acrylic paints, a palette and brushes.
$599 per person – 2 nights accommodation in a Cedarbrook cottage, all classes and some meals. Satyama will also be available this weekend for massage appointments in the Falling Water Spa. Satyama speciallizes in deep tissue Swedish, Thai massage and lomi-lomi. Extra charges apply
