New Year’s Retreat

Looking Within: Painting as a Spiritual Practice

December 28 2018 – January 1, 2019
Pendle Hill Retreat Center
(filled- waiting list only)


This New Year’s retreat invites you to focus on your Heart and what you want to create in the upcoming year.


New Year’s Retreat Program


Give yourself the gift of time, introspection, and delight, as you connect to your heart and soul.  Painting as a Spiritual Practice uses the intuitive, creative process to connect you back to yourself, your heart and Source energy — one brushstroke at a time. A spiritual practice is any way that you can connect deeply with something greater than your day-to-day self.

This intuitive-based painting journey is a powerful spiritual practice, because it invites you to listen deeply to your body, your feelings, and your inner wisdom. Then — by expressing yourself by putting paint to paper — you invite joy, peace, and centeredness back into your life.

The aliveness that comes from heart-full personal expression often looks like an abstract painting. That’s why no painting experience is needed. All you need is a willingness to take this journey of self-discovery and play with paint.

What People Are Saying About this Retreat:

Damini offers a big canvas on many levels for exploration and discovery at the Painting the Landscape of the Soul retreat. Along with this offering, Damini stays present in a consistent way with all participants and supports each one with her intuitive skills as an energy reader of the painting and the process. This takes the form of her availability as a “consultant”, sweet nudging, and asking simple (!) questions to enhance clarity.

This can be a deep dive.

The treasures found are the jewels for a creative healing journey. I have found the ripple effect of this workshop still active and shimmering after 6 months.
