Tuition (Accommodations Additional): $750


Hands-on joyful creative play carries into a deeper sense of devotion. Our creative process can be a profound way of experiencing inner communion with God.

This unique retreat will include a hands-on creative process led by Dana as well as conversations with Asha and Dana about the role and importance of creativity on the spiritual path.

The sessions will include inspirational music and simple movement that opens us to the flow. We will also offer an optional group Sadhana comprised of yoga, energization and meditation.

This will be a small intimate group to allow one-on-one time with Dana.

Scholarship Available

As part of the Joyful Arts Initiative we are offering one scholarship to ensure that events in our community are accessible to all seeking expanded consciousness, regardless of financial resources.


This is a rare opportunity to experience an intimate retreat with Dana Lynne Andersen and Asha Nayaswami. Absolutely no artistic experience is required! This work is not about art, but rather using the tools of art for expanded awareness.

Temecula is a beautiful area in Southern California, about an hour north of Encinitas. A Mediterranean climate in the wine country, its gentle mountains nourish pine and cypress as well as palm trees, citrus and avocado groves. Our wonderful light drenched hacienda retreat is situated on 200 acres and has a warm and nurturing feel.
