Create Beautiful Art in Nature– immersed in a ‘studio laboratory‘
Join a community of Spirit and Nature lovers for a fun and inspiring project- turning an ordinary yard into a magical oasis!
We will work together to fashion beautiful works of Art & Nature on the grounds of the Academy and in the nearby forest studio.
Learn how to use beauty to attract high vibration energy into your home & garden.
You will be guided in technique and inspired in ideas as we co-create with the Spirits of Nature. We’ll turn dead trees into vibrant sculptures, rocks into inviting pathways, branches into intriguing fences. You will learn about how to connect with the Deva’s (Nature Spirits)– how to attract birds & butterflies to your garden, how to make imaginative garden features such as pavers, fountains, etc.
We’ll watch “Rivers and Tides” – an inspiring film about the work of Andy Goldsworthy and enjoy informative presentations by Ananda artists of the garden and the studio. During the week we will complete a collective project- learning skills that you can apply at home—and each person will also have the opportunity to create their own unique work of ‘Spirit, Art & Nature’.
Daily yoga & meditation, guided hikes, live music & inspired kirtan + daily inspirational classes create a full and dynamic experience.*This course can be taken in conjunction with Spiritual Renewal Week at Ananda Assisi as you can join us in the morning before class and/or in the afternoon after lunch.
If you are interested in taking this course for free you can join us as an intern- please write: firstname.lastname@example.org
“We should bathe our spirits in the deep, pure feeling that stirs within us when we gaze on the glories of His creation. This is the way to know God as beauty.”
“I now see that the Spirit, alone in a space with Its ever-new joy, has expressed Itself as the vast body of nature. I am the stars, I am the waves, I am the Life of all, I am the laughter within all hearts, I am the smile on the faces of the flowers and in each soul. I am the Wisdom and Power that sustain all creation.”
