Anita Miller                        “An Odyssey Inside Your Imagination”

Experience the joy of artistic expression and creative writing with hypnosis.

Join artist and writer, Anita Miller, in an inner journey of creativity and inspiration on the beautiful and secluded Greek Island of Paros.

In this week-long workshop participants will …

…experience the joy of connecting with kindred spirits
…delight in a selection of artistic explorations in watercolor, drawings in pen and ink, and collage
…take part in guided writing exercises aimed at exciting the imagination
…gain insights with hypnosis that help to access the mind’s eye
…practice the art of creative expression in an encouraging and supportive environment
…explore the island of Paros in their free time
…unwind in an atmosphere of leisure, love and mutual respect   

2017/18:  Anita is deep into other projects so we have not scheduled any Greece workshops with her.  Please take a look at our current alternative.

Due to popular request we are adding an optional extra week to visit the major sites in Athens and the Greece mainland.  Take a look at Art & Antiquities

Please direct any questions about Paros, accommodation, meals and the like to Michael at Paros Hospitality.

 

Paros has been inhabited longer than Athens.  The light and air is incomparable. The island is both stimulating and relaxing.

We do have a specific agenda filling each day with Greek isle experiences and art instruction but not too structured as it is YOUR EXPERIENCE that we facilitate and enhance.

Some of the places we will work and play in are:

Piso Livadi beach

Lefkes is a village favored by the artistic minded (right brain).  It is physically impossible to contort yourself to not see a painting, photo or pleasant view.

Piso Livadi equals beach = boats = pier = mountain, oh yes, and the sea.

Aliki is small yet full of Cycladic architecture.  Very calm and peaceful.

Naoussa, the in place with a colorful touristy facade.  Both quaint and active.
