Ecstatic Arts and Dance

(CO)Create an Authentic way of living – starting from an Ecstatic Arts and Dance Journey (with DJ Leela)

Appreciating the way of nature and one of the most meaningful things in life – creating and co-creating art through an ecstatic, meditative and yet playful live music journey that we call ‘Ecstatic Arts’. This is a powerful way of freely expressing your power or ‘just you’ in a safe space and learning to let go of expectations and imperfection. Individually or collectively.

“Art is a product of the intuition – the most powerful instrument within us. We all know we have intuition, but following our instincts isn’t always easy. Brilliantly simple and engaging, Intuitive Arts unlocks the mysteries of intuitive living and release your power of being you.”

“I believe in co-creation and collective consciousness where we can make real changes.”

— Leila, founder of Leilarts

Ecstatic Arts are intuitive, meditative, interactive, playful and meaningful, and the best part is that you don’t need to be ‘arty’ or consider yourself creative. As we believe everyone is an artist when the space is more open. Artist Leila and DJ Leela will create a safe and open space using live music, sounds, and minimal words to guide you through the process. Just trust the process and yourself. Your own movements, sounds, and silence are also welcome (full embodiment experience).



Creating spontaneously, allowing a painting to evolve until there is an explosion of energy and colour on the canvas, is a liberating and healing experience. We believe in the transformative power of pure self expression and the magic it reveals. Whether you’re looking for something new and fun to try, or a safe place to explore challenging feelings and just to take a mindless rest, this private intuitive painting session led by a fluid live music journey (by DJ Leela) is a pressure-free way to support your wellbeing. Available for individuals, couples, or small groups of friends.

It gets better when we are together. Art brings people together heart-to-heart and opens up more space for more possibilities, that’s why we believe in co-creation of making arts together. We host events either donation-based to make arts available to everyone, or as a part of the festival or retreats. Where we will be co-creating freely and ecstatically on the same canvas with others, during the same live ecstatic music journey (similar to Ecstatic Dance) by DJ Leela. We also co-create with other events such as Tea Ceremony to make it a full journey.

(Various Locations: Nature, Kokopelli, Odessa, etc)


Similar to the group co-creation, we are here to help you customise this intuitive, insightful and dynamic Tea Building experience to suit your needs, either you are a corporate, organisation or a community. If you are looking to increase communication and collaboration, to build trust (without pressuring it), to make creative breakthrough on problem solving and leadership, or simply caring for your team’s mental wellbeing and meaningful connections, you might want to consider contacting us. You will be co-creating a piece of art following the organic flow as the gift.

During a private session, you will learn about colour, how to mix and apply paint onto your canvas, how to interact with nature/Dao, connect to your intuition using meditation, and most importantly how to embrace emotions, feel the joy of creating for yourself, let go and explore without judgement.

The workshops usually take place in an intimate group at our beautiful home studio from 1-4 people. The art materials are white canvas and acrylic paint colour. Brushes, knifes, sponge, or natural items like a flower or branch can also come along You will go home with your own creation, new insights and maybe new connections.

Pricing: 50 euros per person

Co-created by 30+ lovely people

During a co-created session, you will be co-creating on the same canvas (1 or 2 themes) with other participants in the same space, at the same time, during the same live music journey across different waves. You will start from a guided movement practice to connect deeper with yourself and/or others (with respect). Then your journey starts from there. Each journey is different sharing its unique group soul and stories. Often, it’s even more beautifully created collectively while still owning our individual stories. This is the power of co-creation, through collaboration not competition. The paining is often donated or given to the organisation or the owner of the location as a lovely gift from everyone.

Perfect for company Team Building, celebrating special occasions (e.g. birthdays, anniversaries) with your group, opening new locations, or simply wanting to add ‘co-creation’ to your Ecstatic Dance events.

Intuitive Zen-Art Journey with Movements and Live Music

Kokopelli, Amsterdam

Nov 19, 2023

11:00 AM – 13:00 PM

Join us on Sunday, Nov 19 from 11-13, for a meditative and intuitive Zentangle (Zen-Art) Journey/Ceremony, with guided gentle movements and live music/sound journey to dive in deeper with Musician/DJ Leela. It’s at a beautiful & private space of Kokopelli, overlooking the peaceful canal water at the heart of Amsterdam. We believe our intuition and creativity is so natural and powerful to the well-being. Especially when we create with intention and together with nature, and it becomes a beautiful ritual that helps us tap into our wise, inner guidance and allows us to become more intimately present with ourselves and life. This journey can help move through challenging emotions, energies and bring back present moments. It will also help quiet the mind in the busy world we live in, and brings creative insights & new patterns into daily life, that we can not often express through only words.

Awaken Your Senses: Through sensory exploration and rituals, you will awaken your dormant senses, your primal power, and learn to appreciate the world in a new light.

Drop What Doesn’t Serve: Release the baggage that holds you back and experience a profound connection with the current of existence, yourself, and others.

Connect Through Wholeness: Balance your feminine/masculine, light/dark energy. Feel through your energetic body into your physical body and land in the now.

‘Dragons & Butterflies’ Co-created Retreat (Dream Castle Special)


January to February, 2024

(exact date to be announced)

Calling all you Dragons & Butterflies, we are taking our vision of Co-creation in the form of a Retreat (no-have-to-dos and only shared cost) 💚 to our dream castle in Belgium in January or February, as a ritual together to step into the restorative ground of the winter season and our collective field. This is the 3rd edition after such beautiful journeys in Malaga and Berlin.

Why ‘Dragons & Butterflies’? It’s our invitation to dance with both the bright and dark sides of life, with a playful attitude. Be as light as butterflies to flow with the nature (Yin/The Light), and dare to step into the shadows and unknowns as dragons (Yang/The Dark). It’s more than a co-creation and a retreat, it’s both and beyond. It’s the way of co-created/community living, and it’s an attitude to life.

Stay updated and connected for future events and initiatives, and inspirations of an ecstatic lifestyle:



We create and share stories and experiences, not just selling arts. Similar to the cycle of nature and life, we believe in the Cycle of Arts. You create your own art, and it stays with you. When we co-create something beautiful together, we (Leila and DJ Leela) as the ‘Keeper’ would like to open the space for the next Keeper. The next Keeper is required to firstly appreciate the value of the power of our co-created art, and then exchange something with us (either a donation or a gift). We will see if we can meet each other there. We often donate the co-creation from one place to another (during our European arts roadtrip, for example, we gave the painting made in Prague to the organiser in Graz). Through passing the love to the next one, we together create a sustainable cycle of art.


To explore the Tao/Dao of nature and how to feel more present and alive, through a balanced integration of practicing mindfulness (Yin) and following your intuition to create something meaningful (Yang). It’s not about achieving. It’s not about ‘doing nothing’. Leila is happy to share her own transitions (East + West, Reality + Spirituality, Bright + Shadow). Supported by her own aliveness and authenticity, and her self-reflective faith to be on the path, inspired deeply from her roots (Chinese, American). Tea, Plant Medicine and Arts as the main channels that have everything she feels passionate about – senses, intuition, spirituality, creation, connection and more. She is here to share and support you on your path through this 1:1 coaching to integrate those wisdoms and practices into a mindful daily lifestyle.


We are a Team

We are a team from Amsterdam: (visual artist) Leila and musician (DJ & handpan) Leela

It seems no coincidence that Leila and Leela met at an event where Awareness & Exploration were two of the main ingredients. Both names are derived from Sanskrit, freely interpreted as “…In our daily experience, embracing the dance of life with a hint of playfulness, including the waves of bright & dark matters and sunshine & rain…” It applies to all what we do, how we like to live our lives and inspire others.

They feel privileged to weave their creativity and experience into both their shared love-life as a loving couple and by offering their services as a team to you. Tailor made that is.

“Impressed by the whole experience! Beautiful vibe that Leila and DJ Leela create, beautiful live music to open up to while going on this painting journey with exactly the right amount of loving guidance. A beautiful piece of art that will remind me of this amazing experience is now hanging in my room. I love it!”

“This experience felt deeply ecstatic. I was impressed by the care and gentle guidance from Leila and Bart. I have very little painting experience, but this did not limit me to express myself during the session. A wonderful experience for everybody!

— Friends (Joey and Jeroen) for the Group Ecstatic Arts Session

“You can’t miss out on this incredible experience! I did this at the end of my big trip in Europe and it was the perfect way to reflect and appreciate my travels. You feel so at home and one with yourself. Leaving the event I felt an amazing sense of happiness and peace I haven’t achieved before! I cannot recommend doing this enough it is so special and unforgettable.”`

— Elsie, for the Private Ecstatic Arts Session


We create and share stories and experiences, not just selling arts. We believe in the Cycle of Arts. You create your own art, and it stays with you or as a gift. When we co-create something beautiful together, we (Leila and DJ Leela) as the ‘Keeper’ would like to open the space for the next Keeper. The next Keeper is required to firstly appreciate the value of the power of our co-created art, and then make an offer on what is worth for you (either a specific amount or a gift). We will see if we can meet each other there. We often donate the group co-creation from one place to another and suggest to do the same. For each piece of art, you can see where, when and who co-created together, as well the unique stories behind through images and videos (click on each one to see more details such as Reel videos). Through passing the arts with LOVE to the next one, we together create a sustainable cycle of art and the flow of life.
