2 days / 1 night

It’s a black and white zen!

And it already started once you pick up a brush.
No matter what purpose you bring with you, just enjoy a great variety from Chinese “Shufa” with only ink.

Spend 2 days in a peaceful, relaxing place... follow your heart to practice, to breath

Length : 2 days 1 night
A workshop dedicated to the practice of painting. Letting the tensions dissolve to reach the peace of the Present.
As we free our self from the boundaries of what we know, towards the open ocean of our inner self. Sharing a window to our soul, to express of our creative being. With a steady and controlled breath, connecting every section of our body with our inspiration. The act of ink painting with its apparent simplicity, reveals an universe of meaning that help us to express what often words cannot grasp.
