Awakening Arts Academy hosts numerous online classes and retreats- from three hour Saturday Salons to five day immersion intensives.


Our Online Courses

From Academy Director Dana Lynne Andersen:

Prior to 2020 I couldn’t imagine how the deep and profound experience of creative process could be translated to an online experience.  I didn’t think it could be done.

But I was wrong!  Since March of 2020 when I held my first online class in Los Angeles I have experienced how powerful the online experience can be. Participants have joined us from all over the world; The US, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Ireland, England, France, India, Lebanon and Syria.

This is a whole new era as people from all over the world are now able to experience the deep discoveries and profound inner awareness catalyzed by TRANSFORMATIVE ARTS.


Our online retreats often feature guest yoga teachers and musicians.  The power of live music and movement bring life to online Academy classes.
