You were born to create!
You do not need any art or painting experience to join us and greatly benefit from this practice.
In fact, skill is irrelevant when you are tapping into your intuitive creative self. In this practice, we put the focus onto your experience, rather than the outcome of painting. All you need is an openness to connect to yourself and the courage to be creative, which will lead you to more vulnerability, acceptance, and trust, both inside and outside of the painting studio.
During this 2-hour class you will receive direct facilitation and support as you paint, so this class is excellent for people who are brand new to the process, as well as those who have a creative practice and would like additional support with their process.
One of the beautiful things about the intuitive painting process is that you are not limited by the tools or supplies you have, or don't have. The process works regardless.
In this class, you can use whatever supplies you already have at home, or can easily buy online. You do need paper of some kind, but other supplies can be totally up to you! In fact, the cheaper and less attached you are to the supplies, the better. I do recommend paints if you are able to, but markers or oil pastels or things of that nature work also.
What to Expect:
Brief guided group meditation to get grounded into the space
A discussion of the intuitive painting practices and principles for anyone who is new
Supportive, radically non-judgemental facilitation while you paint
The benefit of shared experience and healing in community
A space to practice the principles of trust, surrender, and radical acceptance
Completion/closing circle to end class
Come join me!
Because this practice is about coming inward and learning to listen for your intuitive voice, I ask that you not engage in any recreational substance use prior to or during our time together. While some people use or encourage the use of substances in their painting classes in order for people to connect and let their guards down, this practice is about building intimacy and vulnerability with yourself. This mindfulness practice invites you to be with yourself without external influences or altering your state of mind in order to open up.
