with Paul van Dijk

A weekend course to get an intimate understanding
of life forces in Spring

Two opportunities for you to take the course:

April 19-21 and June 7-9, 2013

In Spring we can observe an overwhelming revolution in plant life: out of Winter’s
apparent death, there develop living, complex compositions of form and colour, with
apparent purpose.
How does that manifest? Which forces are working? And what “organizes” these
changes? To discover some answers to these questions, we need to enter into Nature’s
open secrets.

In this weekend course we will make observations on plants, work on our power of
observation and learn to activate our wonder.
In a variety of artistic exercises (including dynamic drawing and movement) we will
clarify and intensify our feelings about these impressions.
Together with a careful way of reflecting on them, these exercises will help to develop a
living thinking.
Attention will be paid to the understanding of the methodical path we
At the end, you will have a more intimate understanding of life forces in
plant development, as a sound basis for further discoveries.
