About This Event

Play with ART to OPEN YOUR HEART.  

Discover your own original, authentic self expression and immerse yourself in the magic of FLOW

In this course we will use art and creativity to ‘become as little children’. We will  PLAY with art-   clay, collage, paint and pastel- focusing on the process, not the product. Through this creative process we can reach beyond the mind to touch the heart directly.

The weekend will be full of laughter and joy.  Through Intuitive Flow Painting you will find yourself in the zone.  Time stands still  and the soul speaks.

This course counts towards Level One Transformational Art Certification Program.

Immersed in a liberating flow of creativity you will experience the childlike HEART: Spontaneous, authentic, open and trusting, adventurous and HAPPY. Discover the power of Art to heal, open and uplift your heart!

No talent or experience is necessary.  Through decades of pioneering work in the emerging field of Art & Consciousness Dana Lynne Andersen has distilled a proven method for awakening creativity in all people.  Regardless of your age, ability or background you can open the channel of your creative potential.

Schedule


Venue Highlights

The Center at Ananda Laurelwood is located 45 minutes west of downtown Portland in Oregon, surrounded by farmland, forest, and wetlands, with vistas of gently rolling hills stretching west to the coastal range. Quiet, serene, and inspiring, the landscape itself rejuvenates the soul.

The campus was originally designed and built as a residential high-school for the Seventh Day Adventist community. Retreat buildings are updated and comfortable, while retaining the charm and nostalgia of mid-century architecture.

Classrooms are sunny and bright, with plenty of room to stretch out and immerse yourself in a workshop, discussion group, or movement class.

Afternoon yoga classes are offered almost daily, year round.

Group meditations are held each morning and mid-day. Meditation instruction can be arranged.

Accommodations

Most of the accommodations at the Center at Ananda Laurelwood are dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms down the hall. Most rooms have a sink in the corner. All rooms have ample closets and are quite spacious, light, and airy with good-sized windows looking out either across Laurelwood valley or onto the hillside above the retreat center.

You can choose your sleeping preference: twin, double, or queen bed. A small number of rooms have an en suite bathroom. A 2-bedroom apartment with kitchen and bath is also available.
