Spirit, Art & Nature  

Nature is a gateway to feeling the presence of God. Similarly, when we are immersed in a creative flow we can feel Spirit moving through us.  Combined, Art and Nature provide a deep experience of inner communion.  Through meditation, time in nature and creative play we will melt into harmony with the Deva’s of nature and experience the tangible presence of the Divine within and without.

 results and ‘surrendering the fruits of your actions’. In this zone of high vibration creative flow we access  high states of expanded awareness.
