SaiArt Symposium 2018


Sai Prema (nearby Athens) in Greece
4th – 14th of October 2018

“…the basic quality of devotion is the yearning for realizing
oneness with the Divine.” – Baba

This SaiArt Symposium in Sai Prema in Greece will be a tribute to Helena Rytkönen, who startet with SaiArt 10 years ago in ‘Stille Haus’ in Germany. Because of her passing away and union with our Lord last February, the topic of SaiArt this year is “One with Sai”.

The focus is on realizing oneness with the Divine, oneness with Sai. We will try to find and develop ways to expressions to realize being one with Sai in our heart, in our artistic work and in daily life.

Drawings, paintings, crafts, poetry, music, photos, audio and video recordings and other artistic expressions are welcome.

During the symposium working sessions will give the possibility for intercultural, international and interdisciplinary teamwork.

The theme of the symposium will be deepened in:
– workshop / study circles
– presentations
– excursions
– service activity

There also will be the possibility to visit the Sathya Sai Centre of Athens and celebrate the devotional singing, together with the Greek devotees.

The symposium will conclude with a cultural event on the last evening.
The participating artists will present their pieces of art work, created during this 10 days Art-Retreat.

Arrival will be on Thursday, October 4, departure on Sunday, October 14 in the afternoon, or on Monday, October 15, 2018.
