Artist Living Program

DhyanYoga offers programs which integrate learning, creative growth, celebration and inner exploration. The Artists-in-Residence program at the center provides a unique opportunity for creative individuals to develop their artistic journey in a spiritual atmosphere, in close communion with nature. Offered for a period of up to 2 months. The artist will be given accommodations at the center, prepared vegetarian meals, and access to all other facilities at DhyanYoga. The residency period can begin on any date convenient to the artist.

In exchange, the artist will provide help with events and possibly look to host events to share their art with others.
