Journeys in the Dreamtime
Through Art, Music & Meditation
Workshops and Private Tuition by UK Author and Artist Neil Hague
"Art in its truest sense is the vehicle by which we ‘dream with open eyes’, and it is the free flowing timeless connection to inner worlds that are waiting to be discovered. All art is spiritual and therefore can be deemed unacceptable, even ‘dangerous’, when it attempts to convey other levels of reality."
The aim of the art workshops (and private tuition) are to offer avenues of individual creative expression to unlock what Neil calls 'our inner-knowledge and our true understanding of our part in a multi-dimensional Universe.'
Art in its myriad of forms is a primary tool for unlocking the imagination, and therefore, as individuals the workshop gives the opportunity to nurture and focus our creative abilities in a two day intensive group setting with a unique UK artist – Neil Hague
The workshops consist of several art-based exercises intimately guided by Neil and all art made during the workshops will be produced initially through drawing and painting, primarily through exercises that come in the form of Doodling, Painting to Music and the ability to ‘look twice’ at what we call 'reality'. Making art of this nature creates higher levels of awareness opening channels of discovery into those areas the ancient's called the "Dreamtime".
"Images derive from the fountainhead of human life, the heart, the solar centre, ancient memories in the blood and the polarity of the fire of the spirit." Cecil Collins
The workshops include a group presentation on art, archetypes and the nature of reality, showing how art is a universal language that comes from the core of our consciousness. The workshops offer a platform through creative expression to open our finer senses, and see into 'other worlds' that are just as real as the world we construct daily. Art is a process and a language that can show us our inner worlds, if we allow ourselves to go with the creative flow. The workshop will consider the dreamtime, ancient symbols, archetypes, historical artists, the 'human divine form' and how the power of the visionary within us all can open our hearts and expand our understanding of who we really are and what we are truly capable of today.

The Workshop and Tuition
Since Ancient times, the movement of the stars, planets and other celestial bodies have fascinated humanity. Our ancestors have built temples, belief systems and even personified these bodies so to gain a greater understanding of the mysterious connections between Heaven and Earth. Often guided by unseen forces our ancestors were pioneers, wanderers, storytellers and stargazers who undertook many quests into these unseen worlds. The aim of the day is to cover several art excercises, techniques for beginners and those with artistic flair alike. All of the imagery will be made through individual and group guided exercises, meditation and creative visualisation techniques, with a quite a few laughs and stimulating debates in between.
After a day of creative expression through exercises more attention will be given to individual needs and creating art forms that move us beyond the normality and mundane realities, primarily focusing on the Imagination.
