Relaxing, Natural Retreat Setting

Enjoy a powerful life purpose visioning workshop at a yoga & meditation retreat center- Ananda Laurelwood near Portland Oregon, inspired by the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.

Discover your Dharma

Discover your Dharma in the synergy between what the world needs and what you are here to give.  Journey from scattered desires to focused vision.  Remember the reason you came and crystallize your next step.

Creative Self Discovery

Our work uses creative process to discover the messages of our soul-  reflective journaling, collage and theatrical embodiment reveal the shining currents of our Dharma and destiny. Our  journey of creative exploration takes us deep in the life of the soul, restoring connection to what has heart and meaning in our lives and bringing our life purpose into clear focus.  Our process culminates in a creative ‘Rite of Passage’ that claims the blossoming of your talents and abilities.

Dana has distilled a simple yet profound process to widen the aperture of inspiration and revelation. Using “right brain” modalities – visual, kinesthetic, symbolic, and intuitive – she helps us activate capacities that reach beyond the parameters of ordinary awareness.  She teaches us to access – and transform – our future.

Creativity makes us come alive – arousing passion and clarity. 

Through creative exploration and expressive arts we access both childlike joy and profound soul wisdom.  In this work we utilize ‘right brain’ modalities -visual, kinesthetic, symbolic and intuitive, to activate higher capacities beyond the mind. Imagineering exercises bypass the boundary of ordinary awareness to access-and transform the lay lines of your future through energy painting.

In this weekend workshop you will journey from scattered desires to focused vision


  • Quickly access peak states of high vibration inspiration, soul intuition and creative flow

  • Discern the difference between frivolous desires and deep soul callings, between subconscious patterns and ‘super-conscious’ insights. Relinquish what no longer has heart and meaning for you so that you can direct your passion to what is essential.

  • Come to the center of yourself and align your life to the Divine blueprint of your Dharma and Destiny.  Synergize mind, body, heart, soul and spirit in service to your highest calling.

  • Activate multiple modes of intelligence to access the template of your future shining in the shimmering field of pure potential

  • Magnetize your VISION and make it REAL

Through decades of pioneering work in creative process, Dana Lynne Andersen has distilled a simple yet profound process that opens the portals of creativity. You will be guided through a series of simple and fun processes that awaken the wisdom of your heart, soul, and spirit.  Modalities include movement, chalk and oil pastel, energy flow painting, collage and the creation of your own unique ‘Life Mandala’.

No artistic talent or experience is neccessary.  From the very first day you will…

  • Awaken the artist inside you, overcoming any blocks to creative expression
    through intuitive painting
  • Learn to express your inner life with passion,  spontaneity and originality


This inner odyssey takes place in the beautiful, rural Laurelwood Valley
