12 days Art Therapist and Painting training in Amalurra, in the heart of the Basque country Spain. This is the longest such training in Europe this year and an opportunity for total immersion in Primal Painting, Self Portrait and Nature Painting over two weeks. A chance to reconnect with the childlike innocence of the being through painting, meditation and group work. The first week gives us the space to reconnect with ourselves and our own creativity and in the second week we experience our inner and outer nature by painting outside in the beautiful orchard, woods and gardens of the Amalurra community. A unique chance to participate in a training event presented by facilitators and staff who worked with Meera over many years.
The training is presented in English with Spanish translation provided
At Osho Miasto in Italy
With Svagito, Sahaja, Ojas
Meera is suddenly gone, but she is still here with us, in the depth of our hearts. In line with her vision her work will continue.
Her workshops will continue in Miasto, first of all the work with children and parents "Creativity and Innocence", where in addition to her team of historical assistants, Svagito will also be present, an expert in Family Constellations, who for many years has coordinated the Osho Therapist Training in Pune, India.
These workshops are dedicated to her and her generosity for giving us a vision so clear about meditation, painting and therapy developed through constant spiritual quest and a total devotion to Osho.
This group is designed to bring love and awareness into family life.
The parents and the children sharing the space of creativity is so precious. By painting with children you will remember the forgotten language of spontaneous expression.
What Osho calls Creativity is not coming out of your mind but out of joy and innocence. And once you bridge to this innocent space in you, you will bridge to the very heart of your child.
We dance, we play and we meditate.
So come and join the caravan of Osho Love, playfulness and, Osho Life in Miasto where you can taste of osho's work directly.
Children can join the group along with parents, relatives or teachers.
Location: Osho Miasto contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
at Osho Miasto in Italy
These courses are continuation of Meera's work, inspired by her clear vision of meditation, painting and therapy, developed through continuous spiritual quest and total devotion to Osho.
Among the courses she created “Primal Painting” is the master key to original expression. Everybody longs for original and authentic expression and yet so few people allow this magical experience in their life. There are so many erroneous beliefs on creativity and on so called artists. We don’t realize that by trying to be somebody, we are going far away from our authenticity. In this group our approach is from the opposite end, how to unlearn what we think we know and learn how to be playful and spontaneous.
Creating one’s own being is the priority.
Different methods like:
are used daily.
Once one gets in touch with one’s own energy source, painting is just a reflection of joy and innocence.
OSHO INTENSIVE PAINTING MEDITATION RETREAT - IBIZA 2018
“Awakening your creative potential”
This course is based on the well-known artist and art-therapist Meera Hashimoto
who dedicated 40 years to develop this unique work dedicated to
In Meera’s own words:
”Painting can be a mirror to look deeply into yourself. When you paint with
awareness, whoever you are, whatever you are feeling in that moment, will
find expression on the paper, and be captured there, reflecting yourself
back to you. All that you need to do is stay open and watch.
In this way, through awareness of each moment, a revolution in
consciousness is possible, because the mind has no space to get into old
habits of commenting, judging, criticizing or instructing”
Quote taken from: . Re-awakening of Art, Meera Hashimoto
INFORMATION ABOUT THE COURSE
This course is residential and it lasts for 6 days, 7 nights.
Places are limited with a maximum of 17 participants in a residential program and and 3 more participants in a none residential program.
In this group we will explore our creativity and what hinders our uunlimited expression.
It is an experience of personal growth, meditation and painting while discovering our true origin. Through play, dance and exercises based on primal painting, we will expand our creative expression into unfamiliar and new dimensions.
We will look into and unlearn what has been learned, we will take the freedom let go, unblock and free ourselves from the constraints and labels.
By active exploring, listening and simply observing, we get in touch with our original being and in that moment expression can happenwith total freedom, and without valuation,
Then painting happens by itself out of no mind.

FOR BOOKING DETAILS see; IBIZA -INTENSIVE PAINTING TRAINING
Everyone has a longing to create and express their own uniqueness. For many this is a secret wish that we never act out. Our heart is always there to remind us of the other side of our nature perhaps a wild, unique, and playful side that longs for expression. Once this creativity is released it finds its way into every aspect of our nature and in every act of our being.
During these 3 days we look at the basic psychology of creativity and removing those blocks that prevent us from expressing out authentic self.
We use a process of working with people, therapy, painting, dancing, self-enquiry and meditation all in an atmosphere of spontaneity and playfulness. Painting on the floor with acrylic paints and water we experiment with our own individuality and connection to creativity.

Art Therapist Training held in Noto for the last 10 years has always been one of Meera’s most favorite trainings. This year the training will be presented by 3 facilitators and Svagito with the help of the team of people who have been supporting the work for many years. All three facilitators have been supporting Meera for years and deepening their meditation and creativity. Svagito is Meera’s partner and a world-famous therapist.
Obviously, the focus of the Noto training is nature painting under the fully bloomed cherry trees. This time of the year is very special when mystery of nature is revealed with its life energy bursting into flowering. There, essence of meditation and creativity will be overflowing.
When you paint with meditation, what you have in front of you is not just nature, but a master who reveals to you mystery of existence. For that, you will prepare yourself with active mediations, dance, and therapy work. Also, you will experience primal painting, black and white painting in darkness, painting with small papers, etc., through which, along with other exercises, you will explore your essential nature inside.
Facilitators are Henna, Bhaven and Tosho. Henna was with Meera for more than two decades and has established reputation for her self-portrait work. Bhaven graduated from the same art university as Meera and has been exploring his own art as well as working with Meera for many years. He facilitated art groups in Pune. Tosho facilitated part of Pune training this year and is a translator of “Reawakening of Art” written by Meera.
This will be a unique training where 3 facilitators will share their own individualities and experiences to present Meera’s work in its multidimensionality.
Along with us, Svagito, who was Meera’s partner and is an expert of various kinds of therapy work such as family constellation, star sapphire and was a coordinator of OSHO therapist training in Pune for years, will join us as a guest and will share his understanding and experiences.
The place training will be held is Noto, Ishikawa prefecture which is located in the northern middle part of Japan. The hotel is located on a hill overlooking the sea. It has hundreds of cherry trees in its backyard. Luckily not so many people visit the place even during the time of cherry blossom and it is virtually left only to us to enjoy its full beauty. The hotel welcomes us with its gorgeous meals prepared with local, fresh fish and vegetables. It also has a natural hot spring.

Ordinarily, Nature Painting means a direct translation of nature into colors and forms. In this approach, painting of nature is like a bridge from the is-ness of nature to your being.
As we sit in Zazen, so we sit around Buddha Grove with paper and colors:
Like a sculptor taking away the unnecessary parts of the stone to reveal a unique piece of art, this process is a strong confrontation with one’s conditioning.
True art has nothing to do with technique, but with returning to a sparkling innocence inside. Sitting silently around Buddha Grove will encourage you to find this precious space within, and out of this space painting is pure joy.
A 3-Day Course - the fourth component of the 21-Day OSHO Meditative Art Intensive
- Jan 27 - 29, 2018 ~ Meera Team with Tosho, Ojas and Premraj
Dance and painting are both expressions of our creative life force.
Dance gives painting more movement, and painting gives dance more color and depth.
Painting on a big sheet of paper on the floor allows you freedom to express yourself in a new way, different from conventional methods.
Take this invitation and you will connect with your body, with your joy, with your meditation.
A 3-Day Course - the third component of the 21-Day OSHO Meditative Art Intensive
- Jan 22 - 24, 2018 ~ Meera Team with Tosho, Ojas and Premraj
Face yourself, moment to moment, while discovering or deepening your painting skills.
Doing a self-portrait is a powerful experience, and at the same time a healing. Where you may have learned to look away from yourself, you will end up embracing and welcoming yourself with open arms. And you come into deeper touch with your natural, original being.
Side by side you will learn to paint the beauty of the human figure in dance.
A 3-Day Course - the second component of the 21-Day OSHO Meditative Art Intensive
- Jan 17 - 19, 2018 ~ Meera Team with Tosho, Ojas and Premraj
The healthy inner child in us never dies. We have “buried” this child alive under our conditionings and teachings we received.
We will put a spot light on the wounded child inside us, who had to decide to stop expressing itself fully in order not to get hurt again and again. You can't separate expression and life.
In this course we will say YES to the healthy child and embrace our wounded child inside us.
Painting on the floor and splashing color and water will give you the remembrance of the innocent and healthy child living inside you.
A 3-Day Course - the first component of the 21-day OSHO Meditative Art Intensive
- Jan 12 - 14, 2018 ~ Meera Team with Tosho, Ojas and Premraj
A 21-day intensive that combines art and art therapy.
It is about much more than learning technical painting skills: you will also experience how with deepening one’s meditation, painting skills follow like a shadow.
While you will be able to enjoy your creative process, at the same time that creative process will be used to look at and deal with your life issues. No other medium can penetrate so directly to our unconscious as a picture does.

I just returned from the Osho festival in Italy, where we had a beautiful exhibition of Meera's paintings and a very touching event. I felt so much surrounded by love and had many deep and touching sharings with so many people! And Meera was definitely there as well........
After Helsinki and Stockholm we had a big event for Meera at the largest festival in Scandinavia at Angsbacka, Sweden. Meera was so present and people loved to get a taste of her work and art. I am so grateful that I can share her with so many people! Anubuddha and Anasha were also there, what a great surprise!
At the end of the first week of the Meera Painting Training we did a celebration for Meera, where we let go of some of her ashes into the little creek, where she used to paint. It was so touching and so beautiful to be in Amalurra and paint there with all those loving people. Sahaja, Ojas, Premraj and Tosho did a great job in leading the course and the helper team was also phantastic, just like everyone gave his best. I feel so grateful about the way it all happened.
Every year the trees waited for Meera to come and paint them. Now they will not need to wait, she is always around and so many beautiful souls will continue to paint them.
(All photos thanks to Bodhitara!)
After a presentation in Oslo I was actually leading my first half day painting workshop at Osho Risk, Denmark. I can't believe that I even did a small painting demonstration. Meera must have giggled behind my back. I used to be in the audience in her Demos, now she was in the audience with a big smile!
It all went so well and people were so beautiful. Maybe I will drop being a therapist from now........
We had a wonderful and touching book launch and party for Meera's Japanese book edition in Tokyo on Oct 21, exactly 8 month after Meera left her body!
Thank you Gatasansa, thank you Jun, thank you all the painters, musicians and helpers!
Together with Rama we also established the Meera Art Foundation Japan!
