K2412-5: Wake Up Your Artist - a creative retreat for young people

20.03.2024 - 24.03.2024

WUYA welcomes all to come and explore their creativity this spring!
Over a week you are invited to take part in mindfulness-led workshops dedicated to creativity: writing, painting, song and movement.
We will playfully explore the relationship between what’s inside of us and how to share it with the world outside.
Accompanied by your inner team: the curious child, your zen master, the inner critic, the art activist, the adventurer, and everyone you carry within with their potential.
Playfulness and relaxation are our tools, the present is the place to act.
Rumi says, “There is a place beyond right and wrong. That's where we'll meet. "

We invite friends from 16 to 35 years, discount possible for students.

“Helping with the awakening of the people, helping them touch the seed of joy, of peace, of happiness in themselves, helping them transform the seeds of discrimination, fear, and craving. The artist can do all this.“
