The Art and Spirituality Centre is simply brilliant. I particularly like the therapy room which is very welcoming. Giada, the owner, is a beautiful soul and has a soothing presence. The choice of workshops and therapies is impressive and the place has a great vibe. I definitely recommend it.

I have the pleasure of teaching a yoga class in this space on a weekly basis and it is a dream. Always clean, tidy & warm, with great facilities. Giada has put a lot of thought into the energy and feel of the studio room and it's an immediately calm and inviting place to be. Giada is hugely supportive, incredibly quick to support any queries and really just a joy to work with.

I visited the Art and Spirituality Centre last September and I loved this brand new space which is so perfect for Edinburgh. Something like this was missing in the city and it is so important to have it for our community. Giada has created it with so much dedication and passion. Well done! 👏🏼☺️

The room is nicely decorated, with a warm and cozy feel, and the centre is a warm and welcoming place too. There is an efficient and straight forward booking service for the room, and very good communication if any changes need to be made. The location of the centre is convenient with many bus routes going by, and having a lovely vegan café just next door is a great bonus

Art and Spirituality Centre is your sacred nest in Edinburgh to become an Inner Explorer and Soul Painter within your Heart. A space in Gorgie for Creativity and Well-being with a beautiful renovated Studio Room, Therapy Room and a Cafe. A space where to find healing, inspiration, self-expression and nourishment for your body and spirit through healthy food, classes, workshops and therapies run by different facilitators. Yoga, shamanic healing, creative workshops, reiki, sound bath, meditation and more among beautiful artworks in the studio. 

Art is Spirituality and Spirituality is Art linked by the Beauty of your Heart.  Art is your work-out to express your hidden emotions and Spirituality is your work-in, your self-development and inner healing.  Art is not Creativity if you just paint an object without your heart, like repeating a mantra is not Spiritual if it’s mechanical and there is no intention behind. By adding colour to a ray of light that you are  painting, you are simply giving a shape of Beauty to the Deep meaning and by using your heart, when you are expressing yourself, you start your inner healing.

Art and Spirituality are linked by a golden thread represented in the golden circle, the enso of our logo as a symbol of life. This thread, from the earliest times,  has been the symbol of knowledge that stems from personal experience, free from conditioning. It is a thread because it represents the continuity of an experience that is always ancient and always new and it is golden because it is immortal, it always remains even in the most chaotic and obscure times, sometimes more apparent, sometimes more hidden.

Now, the intention of our centre is to create an Alchemy to awaken people to a new, deeper, more connected, higher, more universal awareness and personal growth. The ‘Art of turning lead into gold according to the ancient philosophical tradition is what inspires us deeply, because we believe the time has come to take the simple artistic workshop to the next level of depth. You must ignite the inner fire of passion for Beauty, making favourable conditions for the ignition of the Athanor, the Alchemical Furnace, which dwells in your breast, with the will to paint as true soul painters, following the harmony of cosmic cycles and Mother Nature. 

Our mission is to help you realise who you are, what you want and what inner tools you have and support your willpower. And these represent that mustard seed which is so small but which, once sprouted, will give life to a great plant. The mustard seed symbolises the beginning, the incipit of the Great Work, the beginning of self-work. We want to help you become an Inner Explorer, as the most difficult journey is the one that leads you inside yourself to discover who you really are. But it is only in contact with your soul that you are finally awake and the spark you ignite in you is part of the whole, and in that flame resides the whole universe. 

We believe that through a creative attitude you can become co-creator of your life, fertilising new ideas and reconnecting yourself with your soul mission, as everything is united by a single thread that weaves the extraordinary, admirable web. Everything is set in motion by this supreme energy, this miraculous force that is none other than life. And from this point of view, physical or psychic illnesses are nothing more than the visible consequence of a rupture in this marvellous thread that binds every object of creation and transmits its vital charge to everything. And through our therapists we wish to rekindle that light in your body and thus in your soul. 

And we also want to accompany you through the aesthetic experience, because the true artist paints to give glory to the object he has seen to represent the manifestation of Beauty and the Poetic vision, where the visible world is the reflection of the invisible one. Beauty is the equivalent to the Revelation that applies to a spiritual awakening. The beauty of colours has the same potential of the revelation of your inner awakening.

The choice of Red as our primary identifying colour is a strong one. It is the first colour used by man after black and has always been linked to fire and, therefore, to everything connected to its symbolism: the spirit, the vital spark. Red represents life, and consequently also the strength it manifests and the energy we need. Red awakens the senses, stimulates creativity and is the colour of the first chakra, the root, linked to the earth. Through the root energy we experience rootedness to the earth and are able to connect with those forces that guide us in our existence. We are able, in short, to find our living space and feel in tune and in harmony with life, through our hand suspended in painting the canvas of life, blue as the colour of peace and divine potential, and with our fingers depicting the Om mudra, bearer of inner serenity. 

And life is a dance of coloured veils, a circular path of wisdom and knowledge, a canvas where the divine within you paints. You are simply an instrument tuned to perfection with the harmony of the Creator. The painter is you, the canvas is you, the colours are still you, the painting is still you, the one who admires the work is you.

Enjoy the journey!
