Art + Sensuality Retreat in Bali
$700.00 – $3,150.00
April 28th – May 5th 2018.
Come join Ashley Apple + Alena Hennessy in heavenly paradise as they guide you into your whole being; through intuitive painting and creativity, along with understanding our sensuality and power as women, not only to create but to shine out our truth. Bali is full of offerings to the divine through flower altars, painting, dance and ritual. We will gather and paint on a beach front resort, feel our cells, focus on Sacral Chakra healing, movement, and practice with joyful prayer and intention. We will create from our hearts and understand the power of our sexuality. This retreat is designed to deeply nourish and experience yourself and the radiant woman you are. To create from a place that is true, to move in a way that calls in sweetness and fulfills you; to understand the power of pleasure; to know that radical acceptance of oneself is a holy act…
During this retreat you will learn how to activate your sexual power with simple techniques and channel the energy into your creative expression. Creative energy and sexual energy come from the same place. When you relearn how to connect your mind, heart and sexual center, energy flows easily through your body. This allows you to live in your power, purpose and pleasure. Nourishing your sensual self invites creativity and unleashes your radiance. You will also learn to paint from pure intuition, pleasure, and acceptance along with creating and collaborate to create beauty with the natural world and with one another.
Art surrounds the Balinese from earliest childhood and is ever-present everywhere. The Balinese seem to make an art out of even the simple necessities of everyday life: fruit salad is served with flowers strewn on top, vegetables are carved in intricate designs at meals, daily offerings at the temples are ornate rituals of incense, orchids, fruit and prayer. Bali’s incredible lush scenery inspires the artist’s soul. A land of magic, smiles and vibrant color, Bali will steal your heart forever.
