Painting from the Heart

a Day-long Workshop for Connecting with your Creativity and Spirit

Saturday, Jan 26

9:30am to 4:30 pm

Everyone was born to create, to live life with passion and zest.  As children we created, painted, colored and played just for the fun of it, with no concern for the outcome or the final product.  As we enter into the “real” world as adults, we no longer make time to paint, to create, to play, so we forget how. We yearn to reconnect with the joys of life’s process, and with our own intuitive powers--to rekindle the creative connection with ourselves and with the spirit around us. 


In this workshop you remember what you have forgotten. In a respectful and non-judgmental  setting, you will use vibrant colors, brushes and paper as you learn to use painting as a way to connect with your spirit and creativity. Through the practice of focusing on the process of creating and not on the finished product, you learn how to quiet your mind, to trust your intuition to guide you, and you find your own inner vision and personal imagery.  


For people who haven’t picked up a paint brush since childhood, for those with trained in the arts, for anyone who wants to rekindle and explore their creativity. Come and play and release your creative spirit.
