Amanda Giacomini Unknown Location

Amanda Giacomini aka 10,000 Buddhas is an artist, yogini and gifted storyteller. Her 10,000 Buddhas project was inspired by ancient Buddhist artwork in the Ajanta caves in India. This experience sparked an awakening which led her on a mission to paint 10,000 Buddhas. Now 10,000+ later, 10,000 Buddhas has become a worldwide, highly sought after art project, including large scale murals, fine art paintings, works on paper, and apparel. She’s taught yoga everywhere from prestigious art museums & yoga conferences, to The White House and the Forbidden City in China. She’s also the co-founder of Point Reyes Yoga, a studio she and her husband, MC YOGI, started in 2001.

Amanda is a kind and compassionate teacher. She calls on her more than two decades of practice to support students in letting go of stress and opening up to their own innate peace and joy. During the retreat she will offer nourishing yin and gentle yoga woven with mythic stories from the yoga and Buddhist tradition. She will also share the wisdom she has gained on her own path as an artist and offer tools and practices to spark your own creative play.

Amanda will be leading our retreat with yin yoga, dharma talks, watercolor classes and sharing her personal journey. She will also be showing the tools and techniques in her creativity workshops that help invoke a deep sense of security and awareness to ignite the flame within our souls and lead down the road of enlightenment and personal fulfillment.
