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.

With every circle I painted, a new infinity, a new layer, a new colour emerged..

Felt like a light has touched my life..

 As I continue travelling on this path, I notice myself surrendering, learning to let go, and learning to connect to my inner self, coupled with a childlike joy.

Through Savitri Painting, I received messages about my current position and journey in life. I was able to hold infinity and receive in silence, in complete stillness within..  

About the Course

 

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.

What is the Savitri Painting course?

This is a 5-week online intensive wherein you will paint lines from the classic poem Savitri, and learn how to use this process for inner growth and discovery of the soul. 

In this course, people from all over India and the world join from their respective homes to rejoice in coloured radiances, open a new realm within by connecting to the luminous words of Savitri and discover their inmost self. 
 

What will we learn?

  

  •  How to dive deeper into "colours" to find ourselves

  • Painting as a meditative practice, a practice for self-development

  • How to read Savitri in the most beneficial and transformative way

  • How to paint using your inner senses and in the process refine senses, develop aesthetic power and beauty

  • Power of collective aspiration and practice

  • Use flowers and their vibrations for self-discovery, 

  • Use Savitri to discover your radiant soul and follow its movements

  • Receive a painting visually and through other inner senses

   

Post course, you will be a part of lifelong community of sadhaks who use painting as a tool for growing into the soul, as well as its living presence and guidance to master, change and transform one's life.
