Art and Mindfulness Meditation Retreat

Explore art and mindful awareness meditation for self discovery, well-being and self expression

Everyone is welcome!

Everything is One-to-One, designed for your own interests. Art and Meditation can be used just for relaxation and well-being, or we can go much deeper as part of a practice enhancing your spiritual journey.​ 


​Prior meditation experience, artistic 'talent' or experience with art materials is not necessary!

We are not aiming to make 'good' art.

Instead we are exploring the process of mindful creativity for self discovery, creative expression and personal well-being 

Dates and times of your retreat are flexible.

We discuss what you would like to do during our initial phone call.

What Clients Say

"My re­treat with Zangmo was a most en­joy­able ex­per­i­ence, as her sup­port and en­cour­age­ment have given me the de­sire to pur­sue my love of col­our and ex­pres­sion again. It has been a few weeks now since my time with her, and something I no­tice is that when I wake in the morn­ings, I have feel­ings of hope and ex­cite­ment from these new be­gin­nings and a re­lease with my own cre­at­ive­ness. I feel I've been given a new gift of life."
- G.R, Kent: First Cre­ativ­ity Coach­ing Re­treat

"Dur­ing my 3 day re­treat you helped me to identify coun­ter­ pro­duct­ive habits that have been in­hib­it­ing my growth and I now see why over-fo­cusing on cer­tain ways of draw­ing and mak­ing has for so long been pre­vent­ing me from mov­ing for­ward.  I felt that we made some real pro­gress and that I left with a dif­fer­ent out­look on what I want to get out of the next chapter in my life. 

Your ex­per­i­ence as a prac­ti­sing artist, teacher and coach com­bined with the fact that you wasted no time in get­ting down to what really mat­ters to me meant that this was a very valu­able 3 days and money well spent.  Thank you!"
- From Geor­gina B, Lon­don

"I am impressed by how you ensured that our time together was a magical combination of art, self-expression and meditation, with a warmth and compassion that made it easy to relax into it all. I achieved what I had come for, and was able to go deeper than I expected, so my expectations were all exceeded. The way you regularly checked in with me as to what I wanted and whether it was working was really helpful. 

I take home with me both a better understanding and a reinforcement of what I need to do to feed and nurture my health and creativity. You gently challenged me to design a path towards it, laid out in simple steps.

By the time I left I felt more grounded, and at the same time I was buzzing with creative ideas."

- P.B.Sudbury
