Silence Awareness Existence – Retreat residency in Finland, Winter 2020 / Residencies
October 8, 2020
Organization Name: Arteles Creative Center
Organization Location: Hämeenkyrö, Finland
Silence Awareness Existence is a thematic residency program in Finland for artists and creative minds, engaged in the theme on various fields. The program brings together international artists and professionals from different backgrounds. Artistic, scientific, meditative and existentialistic approaches are all equally embraced.
Taking place at the heart of the Northern winter, the conditions are excellent for concentrating intensively on your work, thinking and being, as well as for sharing experiences and ideas with other, similarily oriented minds. There is no pressure to have a concrete productive outcome, in case your focus is more in inner development, self-reflection and research. All participation in group activities is voluntary.
In order to support mindfulness and maintain a focused working & living environment, the program includes some special elements such as silent (no speaking) days, offline days and scheduled meditation sessions
