Join me for “Painting from the Inside Out” , a modality called “Process Painting” that is a beautiful tool for self-discovery, healing, and play!
No painting or art experience needed.
Please wear comfortable washable clothing.
Free from comparison and critique, experience the freedom to allow your unique creative expression to emerge naturally. Being open in this way, leads to healing and joy on so many levels.
The process will include: setting your personal intention, invitation to create and engage with the blank page, music ( drumming influencedby Asian, South Indian, Egyptian and other cultures) to support activating your flow, and guided direction to release blocks in all of your 7 chakra energy centers while sharing each chakra color and the characteristics of each life-force energy centers. Process painting is about the experience and less about the finished product. However, I have found that taking time to sit with your finished piece may allow for additional release and healing so we will do this also.
My approach as a facilitator is to set up the open, safe, freeing conditions for you to allow your inner creative spark that lives within everyone to emerge.
This workshop is for anyone who wishes to:
Dive deeply into self-awareness in a creative way
Express what can’t be put into words
Develop greater self-acceptance… access emotions and thoughts we may have pushed down and kept hidden throughout our lives
Learn a new way to meditate through a deeper sense of inner focus
Awaken creative thinking and spontaneity
Play with your inner child
My passion for Process Painting came many years ago (before I could name it) when I got my first box of finger paints and dove into a freely creative, expressive state…and felt so good after my painting play! I was too young to know that it was this exact same state for creative expression that would emerge and trigger the deepest self understandingand acceptance and healing of my adult life. It is not an over-statement to say that taking my first Process Painting Class set me on path that has opened me up to self discovery and healing. In this way it has been life changing where I use paint to access my Divine Creator Center. Since that day, I continued to take that journey inward by creating a small studio in my home. My experience of the healing powers of art have led me to working privately with both children and adults. I soon began to take art classes at Ramapo College and as a result I have recently completed an “Art & Interaction” course that moved me out to using art with infusion patients. Additionally, I am a Certified Usui Reiki II Practitioner and studied Christian Zen Meditation with The Zen Garland Community and became a Christian Zen Practitioner in 2011.
