Dana Lynne Andersen, Renowned Spiritual Artist

Dana is the founder of Awakening Arts Academy with centers in Assisi, Italy and at the Ananda Center at Laurelwoodnear Portland, Oregon.

We use creative process to access our authentic self expression, our soul intuition and ‘whole brain’ creative genius.  Simple, joyful and profound, no talent or experience is necessary– and once your creative channel is open you can apply your inspiration to all aspects of life.

Our light and spacious arts studio is nestled in the beauty of nature.

Laurelwood campus offers a peaceful rural setting with daily yoga and meditation, healthy vegetarian food, lovely gardens, and the living laboratory of an intentional spiritual community (based on the universal teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi).  Your inward journey will be uplifted by the high vibration and joyful energy on this ‘campus of higher consciousness’.

“Art has the power to transform culture and consciousness.  At Awakening Arts Academy, we engage all modalities of the Arts as vehicles to uplift the human spirit and to awaken higher consciousness.” Dana Lynne Andersen
