Date

19 - 22 Oct, 2022

Location

Bonnevaux - On the Ground

Working with Art can  be a way of contemplation. Playing with colors and composition is a mindful act and is very often leading to the point, where time and place are forgotten, exactly as it can happen in the meditation. Contemplating the beauty of nature by painting will lead you into a deeper ”being in the now” and a new attention to reality as it is unfolding around you.

Come to Bonnevaux and deepen your meditation combined with new experiences in watercolor painting.

The painting exercises will be presented in an ambience of love and acceptance. You do not need any former experience in painting or drawing. If you are an experienced painter you will also enjoy the exercises, as they are all new and experimental.

This event can also be your introduction to Christian meditation and to Bonnevaux. During the workshop we will all join the meditations at Bonnevaux.

All our events taking place at Bonnevaux offer an opportunity to discover the rich cultural and historical French and European heritage of the 12th-century Abbaye de Bonnevaux, as well as to explore the varied and natural beauty of the land which we cultivate as a model of ecological responsibility.
