“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).
ECSTATIC & INTUITIVE ARTS FOR EVERYONE (OFFERINGS)
WHAT DOES AN ECSTATIC ARTS (PRIVATE) JOURNEY SOUND LIKE?
WHAT DOES AN ECSTATIC ARTS (GROUP CO-CREATION) JOURNEY SOUND LIKE?
Intuitive Zen-Art Journey with Movements and Live Music
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.
3-Day Temple Deep Dive at Nature of Amsterdam – Voyage into Presence
Farm of Inspiration, Amsterdam
Dec 1-3, 2023
11:00 AM – 20:00 PM
Join us for an extraordinary 3-day experience in Amsterdam. We will dive deep into the temple arts, explore the profound depths of presence, inner calm, and intimacy, and forge a deeper connection with ourselves and the primordial dark in balance with the light. This unique experience invites you to step away from the chaos and immerse yourself in a safe, sacred, and connected space where you can experience expansion and come out feeling more present than before:
– 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.
– Authentic and Pleasurable Intimacy: to explore your desires and boundaries together with each other in a safe and deep space, and not just once, experience three deep days.

We are back to the beautiful, cozy and private space of Kokopelli, Amsterdam again on Saturday, December 9 from 15-17! We will dance ecstatically, meditatively and authentically, make co-created intuitive arts as our collective gift, with live handpan sound journey to dive in deeper and rest together, with DJ Leela and Leila from LeilArts. You might come home feeling more relaxed, present and creative with your body/mind, with a close sense of being a part of a heart-warming community (and something bigger than us) where we share, co-create and celebrate life together.
‘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:
OUR VISIONS THROUGH ECSTATIC ARTS
ART EXCHANGE & GALLERY
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.
1:1 INTEGRATION COACH
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.
WHO ARE WE?
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
ART GALLERY FOR EXCHANGE
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.
