Drawing and Meditation
Tejini lives in rural Perthshire and enjoys a love of gardening painting and meditation. She is a graduate of Edinburgh college of art and has over 25 years of art teaching experience behind her. Her work expresses her love of colour and nature. Tejini first started leading painting and meditation retreats in 1995 and was ordained in 2010.

Dhiraka has been practicing since his student days and was ordained in 2005. He is fascinated by the 'problem' of teaching meditation - of communicating what is a very private practice and helping others to 'get it' when he can't 'see' directly the fruits of their efforts. It is a subtle art and one that Dhiraka takes seriously, but does so with a lot of humour as well. He also teaches meditation in secular contexts. Visit his website.
Open to all, these retreats are suitable for both beginners and those with more experience, but no previous experience is assumed. All these retreats include introductory meditation teaching and periods of silence.
The combination of drawing and painting the beautiful landscape at Dhanakosa along with the practice of meditation allows one to cultivate an open awareness of oneself and a deeper connection with the land. This will be a week of reflection and creativity with expert tutors, Tejini and Dhiraka. The week will cover full guidance in meditation and will include periods of silence. The art will be led by Tejini and drawing will predominate.
