Artist in Residence Program
With Dana Lynne Andersen
Our ARTIST in RESIDENCE program welcomes professional artists interested in the spiritual, healing or consciousness raising aspects of the arts, or who seek an inward journey of self discovery. Studio time in a beautiful and serene environment (holistic, vegetarian, drug and alcohol free) with options for daily yoga and meditation allow for a tangible experience of inner peace.
Enjoy the pastoral beauty of the Oregon countryside with easy access to one of America’s most culturally alive cities. Its official city motto, “Keep Portland Weird”, ensures you can experience the gamut. Try some Kombucha on tap with a shot of fresh turmeric juice!
Our beautiful light filled studio is located on a campus dedicated to ‘Education for Higher Consciousness’. In addition to the space equipped for visual arts, there are also adjoining spaces for movement, music and theater- including a performance auditorium.
Room and board are included in the program fee. The Academy has its own facility on the campus of the Ananda Laurelwood retreat center and spiritual community. You can choose your level of involvement in this ‘living laboratory’ of intentional spiritual community based on the universal teachings of Yoga as taught by Paramahansa Yogananda (author of “Autobiography of a Yogi”). The campus includes beautiful views of rolling hills, nature trails, gardens and orchards, chickens and llamas- life in the country!
