Who can Come?

Art & Sub-Conscious Mind
It is a unique type of retreat to harmonize the body and mind through yoga and creative painting to explore and express the sub-conscious mind. The sea-side location in a peaceful village, coupled with yoga, meditation, yogic diet and spontaneous creativity through painting can sooth the nerves and enable you to swim in the hidden depths of your own mind.
Most of the yoga and meditation practitioners know that dealing with sub-conscious mind is not so easy. It takes years, if not decades to silence the sub-conscious thoughts from regular meditation and to really enter into that thoughtless state of mind. But what many practitioners don't know is how to let go of that sub-conscious mind through creative and conscious art – which is not so different from meditation.
What do I learn in this Retreat?
During the two weeks of this art retreat with a celebrated artist, Marie Lou, you will enter into a fuller dialogue with your mind and learn to unleash the hidden Self within you. Incisive questions will guide you to discover what is unique and essential in your work, in your vision and in your being.
Through painting, colors, stickers you can explore
sensations through creative expression and come out with concrete
steps to support personal development and authentic self expression.
The facilitator Marie Lou will help you to grow and trust your
creative vision so that you have a greater clarity and boldness in
the direction you need to take with your art and heart of life.
Marie Lou is an artist based in France and travels around the world in giving and sharing her art through lessons, retreats and exhibitions. As a Master of Contemporary Art Paintings in Cannes, she won the bronze medal in 2008 and a silver medal in 2010. In the last four years she gave exhibitions in various parts of France, Greece, New York, Caribbean Islands, British Virgin Islands and received high appreciation and rave reviews in news papers and art magazines.
She is also a practitioner of yoga and meditation for many years, and trained from Dharma Mittra and Sivananda styles. She is also trained in various healing practices, including the Gestalt Massage Therapy.
