Holy Isle, Scotland

“Nature of creativity” with Miriam Hall, June 2019

Nature of Creativity is a multi-disciplinary meditation and art retreat

lead by veteran dharma art teacher Miriam Hall.


This course focuses on profound practices of direct perception as sustainable inspiration for any creative path.

  • Long term meditators  find inspiration in the art;
  • artists, new possibilities in perception.
  • All participants thrive in positive feedback and being surrounded by both nature and creativity.

You will explore:

Nalanda Miksang Contemplative Photography

Contemplative Writing,

as well as making marks, movement, and sound.

You will be invited to practice these paths, or use what you  learned from these instructions to explore your own expressive media – drawing, painting, music, etc.

You don’t need to be an “artists” or have meditation experience to attend.

A desire to explore the nature of reality and living creatively are all that’s needed.

Please bring your own creative supplies if desired, otherwise, all that’s required is a digital camera of some sort (phone is fine) and curiosity.
