The Art of Flow - day retreat in Amsterdam (sold out!)

Sunday 10 February 2019 - from € 70,-

sold out!


Creative flow is a wonderful state of the mind that can help you solve challenges in your everyday personal or professional life, and provide relaxation. However, with today's world becoming ever more efficient and filled with distractions, creativity, in it's largest sense, can easily get stumped.

Today will be all about finding ways to get you in a 'state of flow'.

For this day retreat we're teaming up with Ilse Damsma, a self-taught painter and illustrator.

12: Warm welcome

12.30 - 14 hrs: Session 1

We'll start off the day with a mindfulness session with some theoretic background info, practical mindfulness tools and a meditation exercise. The practice of mindfulness is known to increase the ability to switch perspectives, to help solve insight problems, and it enhances divergent thinking - key for any creative process.

14 - 15 hrs: Lunch

15 - 18 hrs: Session 2

In the second session we’re going to try to remove some of the expectations that come with creative expression, and build a creative flow. We’ll be practicing with materials that we don’t have much control over: water and ink. It's important to know we won't be 'learning a new skill'. We will rather be 'experiencing' and observing our state of being, while expressing our creativity.

What you'll take home are some tools to apply new 'flow strategies' which you can use in your personal and professional development, and of course memories of an inspiring and relaxing day spent with a group of like-minded people. Plus your works of art!

We've got you covered throughout the day with a delicious and healthy vegetarian lunch, snacks and beverages.
