Savitri Painting

Paint Your Soul

Savitri Painting is a method to move inward into greater depths of your being through art, music and poetry. It is a means of sensing your soul movements and expressing them through painting. This is an opportunity to learn to see the unfolding of your soulscape and further refining your aesthetic sense.

Why Savitri Painting?

 

Savitri is one of Sri Aurobindo's longest poems, over 24000 lines long. Sri Aurobindo is a ground-breaking sage and poet in the Indian spiritual history. He called Savitri the "mantra for the transformation of the world." By combining the most powerful poetry with painting and music, one finds a potent means for the education of the soul. Poetry raises the emotions and painting stills the emotions. Poetry and painting together brings a still dynamism in the being. And when this poetry is the luminous words of Savitri, it has a transformative power for those who can receive.
