Spiritual Retreat for Yoga and Meditation
in Italy

Arts & Creativity


Under the direction of renowned spiritual artist Dana Lynne Andersen, the Academy of Art, Creativity and Consciousness is being established at Ananda Assisi. The purpose of the Academy is to use all of the arts as instruments for awakening higher consciousness in the individual and transmitting that consciousness into society.

This year’s courses include painting, sculpture, theatre, music, dance and poetry and are open to all levels of experience. No artistic experience or talent is required. For those who wish to discover and express their creative nature, weekend introductions offer a playful yet profound experience. All of these programs are useful tools for those in teaching, healing, counseling and art education professions.
