4th International Winter School of Art and Consciousness Studies: Join us for a 5-day retreat including Russian & Indian Expressive Arts! Tracing back to the roots and ancestors of both rich cultures, we will explore the divine feminine and our relationship to our own bodies and the earth. The journey will include visual art rituals such as kolam (earth drawings), Russian circle dance, mehndi (henna), doll making and more. We will also guide you in a traditional female initiation to connect to the important stages of growth in your own lines of life.
