Celebrate the summer solstice in the fields!
On the 20th of June, just before the longest day of the year, we have a celebration in Koeienweide. Starting with a shamanic meditation to receive the healing energy of the sun, we shall continue with a walk around the field to connect with nature. We will then settle at some nice spot between the trees to draw. I will help you along the way with intuitive drawing exercises.
NO ART EXPERIENCE NEEDED!
Koeienweide is a part of Vondelpark where visitors are only allowed in the company of a guide. As the human interference is limited, the nature can flourish here, the area is rich in flora and fauna. It is a privilege to dive into your creative source in this silent paradise hidden in the middle of the city. Read more on Koeienweide via de link http://www.inhetvondelpark.nl/wandelroute07.html
