Painting the Inner and Outer Landscape Adam Wolpert


Painting in oils can be a profound experience, one that engages all of our senses, our minds, and our spirits. One of the most rewarding ways to explore oil painting is through painting out- side. Faced with nature’s dynamic forces, we are challenged to develop visual sensitivity, flexibili- ty, and resilience. We come into deeper relation- ship with the world and with ourselves when we open to the living landscape around us. We begin to see the world as never before, and our paintings give evidence of that new vision.


This workshop invites both beginners and expe- rienced painters to immerse themselves in the practice of oil painting. Daily sessions will be devoted to painting rapid sketches and more developed small oil paintings out of doors, and exercises in the studio during inclement weath-

er. Basic oil technique, instruction in setting up a palette, mixing colors, and brushwork will be balanced with slide lectures on visual theory, composition, and special issues in landscape painting. Participants will learn from individual instruction and each other, with opportunities to share their paintings and experiences in a supportive environment.


The spectacular beauty of Esalen, with its radi- ant gardens, flowing waters, and rugged coast- line, provides the perfect setting to explore this exciting practice. Bring a sun hat, layers of clothes, and a portable easel. If you don’t have an easel and need to reserve one of the available six portable easels, please let the instructor know. Feel free to email with any questions: adam@adamwolpert.com.

Relaxed and Awake: Mindfulness Meditation and Feldenkrais®


Wesley Nisker & Dan Clurman


By changing our habits of movement, we relax and awaken the body; by changing our habits of thinking, we awaken and relax the mind. We can then join in the dance of existence with freedom and ease. This workshop combines the traditional practice of Buddhist mindfulness meditation with sessions of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lessons, the brilliant sensory-motor approach to reeducating the nervous system and developing self-aware- ness. Periods of meditation will alternate with guided Feldenkrais movement lessons, allowing the practices to support each other and create a sense of mind-body connection, vitality, and wellbeing. The workshop will provide ample time for discussion and interviews, as well as attention to individual challenges. There will also be talks, poetry, and good humor. Wes Nisker has practiced Buddhist meditation for more than thirty-five years in Asia and the West. Dan Clurman brings more than ten years of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement
