Art & Mindfulness: A Creative Journey Through Ancient Egypt
27th May - 6th June 2024
Travel, Creativity, and Mindfulness converge as we go on a trip through the wonders of the ancient world from the pyramids of Giza and along the Nile between Aswan and Luxor in Upper Egypt. Travel with us to Siwa Oasis for a personal energy empowerment and a deepening of your meditation and creativity.
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned artist, this retreat will provide you with the opportunity to develop your expressive skills through a variety of focused drawing activities. As well as dedicated time with expert tuition to guide you in ways of seeing, mark-making, and confidence-building, you will be encouraged to take your sketchbook with you to the various historical sites that we will visit to make on-the-spot sketches for use later in developing more developed works of art.
You will also have opportunities to develop your mindfulness skills through guided sessions and tuition on how this affects the mind and what that means for an engagement with artistic activity. We’ll be looking at how artistic expression and mindful awareness come together to create a state of flow, which you can take into your everyday life.
This unique 10-day experience seamlessly combines the serenity of mindfulness practices with the creative outlet of artistic expression.
All of this, set against the backdrop of one of the most spectacular historical sites in the world. Staying in luxurious accommodation, immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of ancient Egypt.
