Yoga and Intuitive Painting Retreat

Creativity is energy in motion

FRIDAY 29th - SUNDAY 31st May 2015

Our intention behind this weekend workshop is to empower you to release your inner artist. No painting experience is needed – just an open mind. You will enjoy a beautiful mix of sophisticated accommodation in a blissful rural location, delicious food amidst a tranquil atmosphere of gentle music, aromatherapy oils, supportive and like-minded people. It is a time to confidently embark on an intuitive journey of creativity…

Gentle guided yoga, pranayama and meditative visualisation will help you to tune into your intuition and listen to your heart. Pranayama leads to a sacred space where spirit and soul unite. Meditative colour visualisations will bring new awareness to how you personally relate to colours and which colours are most beneficial for you. You will be guided to experience colour as energy to absorb, to heal and to inspire.

As chakras are opened and their associated colours explored, you step off the unknown and move out into what is beyond, to reconnect with spirit and soul. As you tune in and discard any unhelpful blocks, and you begin to enjoy limitless creative potential which is your birth right. Reconnecting with your heart’s wisdom and healing any blocks to creativity.

By the time you are ready to paint, you will be moving along on a personal journey of reconnecting with a sense of personal identity and integrity. Creativity is about relinquishing control, and when we let go of fear and control, intuition can flourish. We are open and free to trust our dreams.

Through guided play with paint and being introduced to a tool box of techniques, your painting will emerge naturally through letting go and welcoming your intuition as you follow your spiritual heart of creativity and trust your inner guidance.

The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.
