Yoga & Creativity - unleash your creative potential
Creativity is the greatest gift we have and it can unfold in many beautiful ways. As children we are naturally creative, we don`t use our head but rather our heart to perceive and interact with life. As adults we mostly loose that gift, as we try to assess situations first with our head and only after do we let our heart speak, if at all. It is as if we have lost the connection to who we really are, to our feelings and to our spiritual source.
Intention & Inspiration
Many of us feel the calling to be creative and make it a larger part of our life again but we don’t always know where to start. Let this retreat week be the source of inspiration you have been waiting for that enables you to tune into the creative source within you!
One source of inspiration for this week’s program, are lessons from a beautiful book written by Doreen Virtue, “The Courage to Be Creative,” How to Believe in Yourself, Your Dreams and Ideas, and Your Creative Career Path will guide the daily themes.
During this event week led by Daniela Dippong, we will have the chance to reconnect to our creative power, to our intuition, to the natural flow of life through an inspiring set of yoga, meditation and pranayama practices, a powerful (optional) Reiki attunement process, and dedicated creativity workshop sessions.
We shall reconnect to our inner voice and to our inner vision, to colors, shapes and to the source of all creative power, our Soul. The inner child within us will become more and more courageous, more and more open towards all the beautiful possibilities to express itself freely and fully again. We will once again become the creator of our world, the creator of our own path, of our own destiny, and get into the natural flow of our own being.
