"Vedic Art is a navigation map.
Use the compass you have in your mind and find the way to the chamber of peace in your heart. Then, when you dip your brush in the light - your space, bliss and eternity will be pictured.” - CURT KÄLLMAN
Vedic Art is an Intuitive Painting method for adults who would like to expand consciousness, heal emotional blockages and become creative in all spheres of life. Developed by a transcendental meditation teacher Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Swedish artist Curt Kallman, it is a modality fusing an ancient Vedic philosophy - the oldest tradition of knowledge in the world with the modern language of art.
Vedic Art is not a painting technique but a self-development method, that works long after the workshop ended. You learn to let go of things that don't serve you, inspire you or allow you to live a fulfilling and creative life. In this process, you learn how to stay connected to your heart and to be present in the moment. You let your true potential manifest on an empty canvas first, then in your life.
Vedic Art requires neither skills or previous experience nor an academic understanding of the process of creating. It is open for all and anyone on a spiritual and/or creative quest, anyone looking for guidance, balance, harmony, and happiness. Anyone who wants's to paint from the heart, not from the mind!
BENEFITS OF VEDIC ART
The 17 principles of Art and Life are based in ancient Vedic knowledge that transcends the cultural, religious and philosophical dogma. It is art-focused meditation in motion and a creative process based on natural laws that exist in all of us waiting to be activated. The process resembles that of a lotus seed buried deep in a mud awaiting the impulse to grow toward the light, therefore, becoming a beautiful flower for the enjoyment of all.
By working through the principles of Vedic Art you can:
* Awaken to your unique gifts and unblock creative potential becoming creative in many aspects of life,
* Remember how to express yourself freely from within and flow with the creative process
* Begin to create without demand, judgment, expectations, and perfectionism
* Feel more confident about yourself and your abilities
* Learn to listen to your heart and start to live accordingly with this inner knowing
* Return faith in yourself through the acceptance of whom you are
* Paint your dreams and allow them to manifest for you
* Liberate from the blockages of ego and fears
* Paint, paint, paint......
* Vedic Art it is not a therapy but it can be deeply therapeutic
* Your heart in result opens up to show the truth about yourself and your own divine presence.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can children participate in Vedic Art Course?
Vedic Art is a method of self-development for adults, but I am happy to let kids age 12 - 17 participate free of charge. They will need their own painting supplies and follow the rules of the workshop, for example, we don't allow electronic gadgets during the class, we also don't chatter and try to do out work in silence. Some restrictions may apply, so please be sure to ask me for details.
Do I need to partake in the entire course?
The course is approximately 25 to 35 hours long. To fully assimilate the 17 Principles of Art and Life I recommend staying for the whole workshop, but because this is a personal journey, and sometimes very deep process, if you feel a desire to leave earlier, this is entirely up to you. You will be given a certificate for the Principles you've accomplished. And, you're welcome to come back :)
Can I host a Vedic Art Workshop?
Yes! I am open to collaborations and all sorts of creative get-togethers! If you have a place that can host a group of participants, quiet, meditative, inspiring, I would love to host the workshop in your "corner of the woods". The host receives free admission to the workshop :)
Ask me for more details!
Do you coach in one on one style?
Yes! This would be a deeply beneficial and very personalized style of Vedic Art workshop, demanding, transforming and very rewarding. Please look here for more details.
What is the cost of the Workshop?
The fees are set by the Vedic Art institute in Sweden and all Certified Vedic Art Teachers are required to stick to these guidelines. The base price, therefore, is $350 per person for the entire course. Keep in mind there might be additional costs if other services are provided, like food, housing, accompanying treatments (yoga, sound bath, etc). The details can be found in the workshop/schedule section.
Vedic Art method and the program was founded by Swedish artist Curt Källman (1938-2010) who received the inspiration in 1974 in India while studying transcendental meditation with famous meditation teacher Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Curt devoted his life to mastering the technique of Vedic Art. The first official course took place in 1988, and since then Vedic Art has grown in popularity across Europe. Today, the work or Curt is continued by his son Johannes Källman.
There are only a few certified teachers of this method in the USA.
My first Vedic Art course took place in Poland with an artist and Vedic Art Teacher par excellence - Agatta Karpowicz in 2012. She introduced me to the method with passion and love, unveiled mysteries of sacred creativity and opened my heart to my true potential and helped me to discover goddesses within.
I received my certified Vedic Art teacher diploma from Ewa Szymczak - Issa Tiffaret in winter 2014. This beautiful experience expanded my inner and outer boundaries, gave me a very needed space and help me understand the meaning of living in now.
I have been an intuitive painter since my first experience of Vedic Art in 2012.
Vedic Art and Rediscovering your Muse
"Recently I had the pleasure of participating in the Vedic Art program offered by Pati and found it to be a highly rewarding and enriching experience. As a poet, my palette consists of words and my brush strokes are my verses. Suffice to say I was a bit intimidated because putting paint to canvas is not an area of strength for me.
Pati put me at ease and through gentle, practical and thoughtful instruction gave me the strength to create paintings that were meaningful and pleasing. Through the swirls, the dollops, the drippings, and the broad strokes I found a creative space that I was unaware of. Pati taught me about texture, space, visual harmony and dissonance, and most importantly how to allow the creative process to manifest itself"...
