The Multi-Sensory Art Retreat at Milaidhoo is scheduled for October 2023 and is intended to take participants on an enthralling journey of artistic inquiry and self-discovery. Each session of the retreat will focus on a different sensory feature, allowing participants to explore their creative potential in novel and surprising ways. The retreat will be centered on vision, sound, taste, smell, touch, and intuition.
The "Vision" session, which takes place at the beginning of the retreat, walks participants through basic tactics to help them feel more comfortable expressing their dreams on paper and really comprehending fresh viewpoints. Alena will be presented to the participants, and she will offer advice and inspire them to discuss their goals for the retreat. The participants will change their perspectives and find inspiration for their artistic endeavors through brainteasers and a beginner's art workshop.
Following that, guests are invited to listen to themselves and their surroundings at the spa during the "Sound" session. A sound healing treatment will be conducted by Serenity Spa, and Alena will lead visitors in capturing on canvas the feelings and sensations sparked by the sounds. This workshop introduces participants to cutting-edge methods for visualizing "sound" and opens up new channels for artistic expression.
Participants in the "Taste" session go on a gastronomic adventure with Milaidhoo while working with the Milaidhoo culinary crew. The chefs' culinary creations will be tasted by guests while they are blindfolded in the wine cellar. These confections will be served as canapés, bonbons, and hors d'oeuvres. The attendees will learn the plating technique after this session. The lesson emphasizes presentation and plating methods while concentrating on creating culinary wonders as edible artworks.Guests will enjoy a delicious four-course lunch that has been particularly created by Milaidhoo's culinary staff after the plating session.
During the "Smell" session, Alena and Serenity Spa will lead a relaxing aromatherapy meditation. The retreat participants will investigate how various smells might stimulate and improve their creative attitude through this fragrant experience. Alena will assist them in incorporating smells into their artwork, and the spa staff will educate visitors on the effects of scents and give them a gift pack of miniature scent bottles for future exploration.
In the "Touch" class, after receiving a soothing massage, participants will use finger painting techniques to further explore their sense of touch. Participants in the retreat will experiment with various paint-induced textures and learn how to incorporate tactile elements into their artwork. During this activity, participants are encouraged to express themselves through touch, which heightens their sensory experience.
Finally, participants will reflect on their profound trip throughout the "Intuition" session, working with Alena to produce unique and atypical self-portraits. The retreat participants will produce a piece of personal art that encapsulates the essence of their transforming trip by drawing on all the new sensations and experiences. For each visitor, Alena will also produce a tiny work of art that represents her perception of their newly discovered identities.
A unique experience that blends artistic expression and sensory stimulation is the Multi-Sensory Art Retreat at Milaidhoo. It presents Milaidhoo visitors with a unique chance to tap into their inner creativity and establish a more profound and meaningful connection with both themselves and their environment.
