Stories are like honey. They slip deliciously around the soul and they invite us to step inside it and listen.

walk Your Talk Kerala beach Retreats Mandala art

Mandala

Explore the healing power of the circle with Mandala art. The Mandala is a symbol of natural energy held within you that both gives you balance and pulls you beyond your surface to see your wholeness.

The Mandalas symbolise you – your body, your psychological state, and your place in the world. They are also translation tools that contain within their circular form the essence of the universe, the seasons, and cycles of nature. They transform life’s mysteries to a scale that can be understood.

osho meditation retreat

You will explore your creative side with play on our Osho Play Away Day

Play connects us to the child in us; it is about being curious, open, and flexible. It removes limits that otherwise constrain us to what we currently know to be possible. It’s by eliminating those constraints and opening ourselves to a chaotic and diverse flow of ideas that creative insights become the norm of what we’re doing. Play is the answer to how anything new comes about.

Osho devised a set of dynamic meditations, which are specifically designed to create this chaotic, unsystematic approach and move us into a heart-centred state. When our bodies play our minds are quiet, and there is space for the creative flow to arise.

The outline of a typical day on the Creatively Conscious Retreat – timings may vary

7-8.30 am – The Creatively Conscious Programme (Qi Gong)
8.30-9.30 am – Breakfast
9.30 am -1 pm -The Creatively Conscious Programme (Meditations, Mask Work, Story…)

Outline of a typical day

 

 

Vanessa and Mano’s gift is they understand frenetic (silly) Western life, because they too have been caught up in it and lived it, but they have found a perfect way and place to remind you what it is that really makes us humans tick and shine and they share this precious knowledge generously and whole-heartedly.
