Solitude is the fount of healing. Creative Art as Therapy, is a holistic well-being programme, designed to support individuals to access creativity and begin their own personal artistic journey. The day begins with a short mindful meditation practice, followed by writing down awareness gained during meditation. You will be encouraged to explore your creativity through writing, drawing and painting. Integrating meditation and mindful awareness to create art.
Meditation is a powerful and an inspirational process, it allows us to experience the flow of joyful memories, hidden sorrows and awareness of our aspirations. Meditation creates a space within, it washes through our spirit and act as a filter, enabling us to capture memories onto our canvas. Art is who we are, all at once, in every piece! It is our beautiful woven tapestries and an abstraction of life. If you are looking to make inner changes and discover your creativity, than this workshop will support you to do just that.
My passion for art enabled me to explore personal challenges, emotions and spirituality to create paintings. So often we look for the answers outside of ourselves, when everything we need is within. Begin your inner journey to discover the authentic you, through a series of creative processes. Be more confident, inspired and explore your creative potential. Drawings and semi-abstract paintings carry powerful messages, inner voices, music, sorrow and joy. All as expressions of self, the artist’s essence and authenticity.
Retreat day will support your creative journey. You will feel embodiment, wisdom of your intuition, inner calm and insightful. Retreats day are a great tool for artistic development and self-empowerment. What you create on the day will be meaningful for you! You will be taking away skills and methods to continue your own creative journey.
Come and let go of all your stress, discover your inner artist, relax and have some fun!

I found the workshop very rewarding.
Tajinder is excellent at creating a supportive and creative environment. We were a small group which made for a spacious and peaceful day. I feel this helped me to be less inhibited than I may have been.
There are very few artists offering this particular type of workshop so I'm really pleased that Tajinder does! Previously, I have done a lot of photography and printmaking but don't feel confident with paint & pencils. I think the workshop helped me break down a few mental barriers and I will definitely do more workshops with Tajinder.
I went on this course because my wife wanted to. I haven't done much since my foundation year at art college 40 years ago but I needn't have worried. Tajinder has a wonderful concept going here combining art and meditation. I must stress here that you don't actually need to 'be able to draw'. If you can pick up a piece of charcoal (all provided) and make marks on a sheet of paper, you're good to go. Tajinder takes you through the day, gently extracting thoughts and feelings from within yourself that you didn't know existed. Transforming these thoughts and feelings onto two dimensions in the form of artwork - and you *will* produce artwork - is a wonder to behold. You'll be pleased with the results of the art, and also of the exploration of your inner self - all in a great setting with good space and light. Easy, secure parking. Definitely worth the cost, and we'll be going back again. Excellent!
I absolutely loved this workshop and found the experience enlightening and so warming. Thank you Tajinder, and to my fellow workshop colleagues who were lovely to share the experience with. Everyone was so encouraging:)
I wanted to change direction from my old, staid way of expressing myself artistically, and Tajinder's methods were ideal for that. After a long break I am now ready to pick up a paintbrush again. Thank you, Tajinder!
Tajinder's workshops are well worth attending. Not only are they well organized but they are also structured to allow you to get in touch with deeper aspects of yourself. I was amazed at the work I created and by talking about my paintings and drawings, I gained a completely different perspective on aspects of myself and certain situations in my life!
Not only do you learn about yourself, but there is plenty of opportunity to learn about art as well -- information on technique and artists.
I also see it as a time to take a step out of my busy life -- the venue, Westbury Farm, is ideal for encouraging feelings of calm and of connection with the beautiful grounds and the old farm house. All of these things, and Tajinder's gentle facilitation, make these workshops something very special indeed.
Just love coming here when I get the chance. So relaxing and peaceful to practice my highly unskilled artistry with a fantastic teacher, Tajinder
She is so calm, warm and encouraging. Thoroughly enjoy my time there x
Response from MindFlow Art:Thank you Natalie for reviewing my course. It's always a pleasure sharing the day with you. Hope to see you soon.
I have with my partner attended two Mind Flow workshops and have not only learned so much about the processes of original creativity , but how to paint or draw from soul awareness , letting whatever flows come to the surface of the subconscious , Tajinder has a calm and nurturing nature that naturally transmits spiritual encouragements to her pupils .
I attended this course last year, it was excellent therapeutic and creative at the same time. I learnt not only about painting and spirituality but also what I want from life. I left the course feeling relaxed and fulfilled. The days retreat was well worth £55.
