A 4 week course about silence.
"Silence is the root of everything. If you spiral into its void, a hundred voices will thunder messages you long to hear." says Rumi.
This 4 week workshop explores silence ... and a deeper listening to the available inner wisdom, inside all of us. What are those messages, and how can these help our lives, change our heart and our art?
'When the lips are silent, the heart has a hundred tongues.' we will explore silence through meditation, texts from different wisdom traditions, and art (drawing and poetry). There will be also shared conversations from the deeper space of the silence of the heart and an opportunity to deepen our listening with presence.
The workshop can also be a gentle introduction to mindful meditation (heart-centred) and a step towards ... stillness, where we truly know who we are.
The course will be on Zoom with the possibility for London residents of attending live sessions at my studio.
4 Tuesdays from 7.30 to 9.30 PM.
2th, 9th, 16th and 23th November 2021
£50 for the course (concessions available).

About Maria Lusitano
I am Maria Lusitano, an artist, heart centred energy healer and teacher. My unique line of work weaves heart-centred mystical practices and art. I concluded a Master in fine art and then a PhD at the University of Westminster in 2015. I also hold a degree in Medicine concluded in 1997 (Portugal, EU) and was a practising doctor for 10 years. Since 2011 I engaged in a focused spiritual journey, and relentless quest for truth, working with Tibetan Buddhist Dzogchen teachings, exploring Sufism, and western mystical practices, leading to a spiritual awakening in 2016.
My spiritual awakening was just the beginning of a profoundly humbling experience, that led me towards more embodied heart centred meditative practices, by attending Helios Foundation and participating in their enlightenment intensive retreats.
I facilitated various arts-based workshops weaving art and spirituality such as introduction to dream yoga, drawing and soul and others, both in London and Portugal since 2015, in art museums (MAAT Lisbon) Artist-run spaces (Iklecktik, Nomadic School), Universities (Goldsmiths University) and in my studio.
