​Will your Path be the Way ​of ​Action?

​The path of Action requires you to do practices two times a day for short periods of time.  It does not require any profound knowledge of yoga, meditation or any prior experience.  Just ​dedicated Action.

​Faces of Suns

​"A field of sunflowers, moving sculptures.  The flowers converse, look after one another, bow in all directions.  Eyelids of suns.  Us."

-The texts are by Dr. Paul Briot, philosopher, poet &. professor of Comparative Religion.  Published by Editions Caracteres, Le Rayonnant, l'Art Vers L'infini.

​The White Spindle

​"A white bobbin quivers.  It links earth and sky.  A thread unites man with God.  We are that thread."

- The paintings are by the Shodo Master Saiso Shimada created after meditating with Nathalie Ishizuka on Dr. Paul Briot's Text.

​The Purple Cloud

​"A purple cloud condenses into a rain of ideas."

- The original music pieces were created for each individual art work ​ by the Shakuhatchi Master Masaki Nakamura after meditating with Nathalie Ishizuka & Saiso Shimada. ​

​Will Your Path be The Way of the Heart?

The path of the heart requires you to forget everything you know and release negative emotions and thoughts as they arise.  We learn to love ourselves unconditionally. This is the fastest route.  Constant love.

​Sun and Earth Unite

​A large acrylic painting by Nathalie Ishizuka ​with a meditation for the viewer that anchors the Earth and Sky for when you need to combine Vision with Balance and Grounding. This is for us dreamers to anchor our visions into the earth and in the present. Let us rise to inspired action.

​​​Man's Step Forward

​Man's Step Forward by Nathalie Ishizuka invites you to change your conception of a To Do List. Each step becomes the list in itself. Choose an intention, what you seek most, and ​​why ​move ​at all. It is not so much what you do, but how you do it that will transform your life.

​Energy South India

​Soak in the energy from Nathalie Ishizuka's stay in South India meditating with Sadhguru on a special night where the Indian Prime Minister and so many others ​were present. Harmonize the physical ​and spiritual.  Learn about different paths of the spirit. Find one that is suitable for you.

​Will Your Path be the Way of ​Knowledge?

The path of knowledge is for the curious who want to know how everything -- including the universe works.   This is experience based. Be ready to turn everything in your life updside down.  Everything.

​Regeneration

​This painting by Nathalie Ishizuka is about the soul blossoming after March 11, 2011. ​ The 15 minute meditation works on self healing in deep ways that include regeneration of ​one's cells.  It allows us to get rid of the old outdated and polluted cellular information and to evolve to a new level. Ideal ​frequency is once a week.

​Awakening Energy

​This painting by Nathalie Ishizuka is about the spirit being as sharp as a sword -- and piercing three peaches. Each peach represents a crisis: Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Fukushima.  The spirit transcends. ​This 10 minute meditation helps circulate Kundalini energy from the earth to your nadis and upper chakras. The ​meditation we do together adapts to your level.

​Vital Balance

​This painting by Nathalie Ishizuka is about the earth and its intimate link with the Sun (the eye).  ​This 15 minute meditation is done with a candle lit representing the sun and our own ​personal request that any blockages or self limitations that do not have to be made conscious are removed.  It can be done whenever you feel the need.  ​

No Time for Happiness or Inner Silence?

​"​Don't say you don't have enough time.  You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein."

​Enjoy Inner Silence 

​Beauty of space -- both inner and outer-- combine for your experience of meditation as ​the art or life. Art workshops are also offered for those who want to create with their hands and not just with the spirit or heart.

​Explore ​One or Two Meditations ​Outside

​A few of the meditations ​ release negative emotions. These should be ideally done outside on a terrace or outside in the garden. ​Outside practices are accessible for practioners depending on need and inclination.  For those healing from physical ailments, ​nature ​will nurture.

​A Sacred Space to Practice

​Finding it difficult to teach in a space that was consistently ​energized and ​where she could explore freely art (​as art and life can get messy!), Nathalie Ishizuka decided to ​share her personal space ​with a very small group of ​others committed to practice and to follow their, heart, mind and spirit.
