Due to the uncertainty surrounding Covid 19, my public retreats are on hold for the time being. HOWEVER Please feel free to enquire about Private retreats of up to six people.
A retreat is a way of disconnecting from the regular hustle of a stressful life. Do you lead a stressful lifestyle? Are circumstances overwhelming at the moment? Is it getting progressively difficult to live in present time and make mindful choices?
According to World Health Organization, while physical exercise has a positive impact on our physical health connecting with Arts improves Mental Health. The same way we take preventive action for physical health it is necessary to look for ways to also promote and maintain our good mental health. They have presented evidence from over 3,000 studies of how connecting with Arts is having a positive impact on health. Canada and UK's health systems now prescribe free visits to museums as a way to help people suffering from post trauma, anxiety and stress.
Jaaneman Art creative retreats are based on art and mindfulness techniques and are designed to help rejuvenate body and soul.
Art and Soul Retreats use art to help participants express and deal with stresses of everyday life, explore thoughts and emotions. And in these retreats we look at art as a preventive therapy helping mental wellbeing, self discovery and personal growth. I'm constantly aware of how mindful creativity makes people connect with what truly matters in life.
Join a small group in a peaceful setting where we paint and play after a morning meditation. Let your creativity flow and re-discover your "art and soul". Art workshops help us become aware of feelings, express freely and to experiment without judgment.
You don’t have to be “good at art”, you don't even have to have had any experience. In these workshops you won’t learn how to draw or paint. You will be shown how to create art. These retreats are designed to show that each of us has an inner artist. .
