What happens on a retreat?

On A Sunny Day 1998 by Steve Gooch

Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned artist, attending an Art & Mindfulness retreat will provide you with the opportunity to develop your creative skills through a variety of drawing, painting, and sculptural activities under expert guidance. You'll be taught how to flow into creativity and rid yourself of the false narratives that are holding your abilities back.

 

These activities will take place alongside instruction in mindfulness meditation with an emphasis on helping you establish a solid practice that you can take into your life once the retreat is finished. Mindful movement through walking meditation and simple qigong forms is used to develop mindfulness off the cushion and into daily life.

 

We'll also explore the neuroscience behind both art and mindfulness practices to deepen your understanding of how your brain is positively impacted by them.

 

A fusion of art, science, well-being, and spirituality.

 

Some of the benefits:

Develop a clear vision for both your art and mindfulness practices. Get creatively unstuck and nail the false stories about not having artistic ability. Nail the false narrative that goes ‘I can’t meditate because I can’t stop my mind from thinking.’ Tame your inner critic. Boost your enthusiasm for your life and your work. De-stress. Eliminate anxiety. Resolve depression. Boost clarity, calmness, inner peace, and enjoyment of life. And you get to see some amazing locations around the world!

New weekly LIVE class:

ONLINE ART & MEDITATION

Join me for a live online weekly dive into Art and Meditation! It’s going to be a lot of fun and help to balance your physical and mental health.

One hour of guided meditation followed by an hour of focused art activity. Learn how to use an art journal, and develop your drawing skills, and colour application. Built around 5-week thematic blocks, the meditation and art activities will take you into a place of flow, presence, and serenity.

Taking up an art practice triggers the release of the same ‘feel good’ hormones as a daily mindfulness practice. Put the two practices together and you’re on your way to turbo-charging your health and bringing a much greater sense of peace and tranquility into your daily life.

Today, mental health is declining faster than the rise of physical problems with over 1 billion people in the world suffering from some form of mental illness.

​Taking up an art practice can dramatically improve on your mental health.
