As one of my students said in the last workshop “I’ve taken a lot of painting workshops and this is much more than just a painting class.”  It’s very true.  This is not about better techniques of painting but better techniques of learning about yourself and from there expressing it into your paintings.  Anyone can do this beginners and professional artist alike. I helps you get unstuck.   You have everything you need and I supply the rest.  You start without a plan and have no idea what the paint will reveal but it always takes you were you need to go.  I decided to make this weekend about being OK with who we are and appreciating all we have already accomplished.  We will learn to tame our critical minds and tell them we want to try something new.

So if you ever wanted to paint and see what you can do or if you have been painting for a long time and feeling kinda stuck. this is the weekend for you.  Join us for this full 2 days of playing with paint and learning a lot about ourselves and how to grow.  Otto Sharmer from MIT says it best.  “We are always two people not just one.  The one we are in this moment and the one we are becoming.”  Let the paint help you discover deeper parts of yourself and strengths you didn’t know you had.  Can’t wait to share this process with you and seeing the paintings that want to come.

Below are the details for the weekend.  See you all soon.

*If you are from out of town and have always wanted to visit Portland there are lots of airbnb’s around near the studio.

Any one can do this no previous art experience required. I supply everything, all you need to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and enjoy what wants to come.

You will need to bring a sac lunch both days. I will provide healthy snacks and teas.  If you need anything else please bring it.  We will take several breaks including one lunch.

The workshops starts each morning at 10am and goes to 5pm. I ask that you arrive between 9:30 and 9:50 so we can start right on time.  The cost is $180 for first time participants and discounted to $160 for students taking it the second or multiple times. Many of my students have taken it 4 or 5 times.  Each time you go deeper and discover different important things about yourself.  Email carolyn_winkler@comcast.net.

Please email me if you would like to be put on the list. I look forward to painting with you if your new and seeing old friends again.

Every year it is always good to start with a fresh inspiration.  This weekend is all about exploring the deeper parts of ourselves and getting the wisdom they have for us for the coming year.   We will follow the paint where it wants to take us and discover strengths and insights our life could use.

I have been teaching this powerful process for over 10 years and it never ceases to amaze me the paintings that want to come.  We all have inner worlds. I teach you how to access and tap into them and discover strengths and wisdom you didn’t know you had. Then you take that wisdom and create a better life

In one short weekend of letting go and playing with paint we can change our lives.  I look forward to painting with you and sharing with you all that I know.  Below are the details for the weekend.  See you all soon.

*If you are from out of town and have always wanted to visit Portland there are lots of airbnb’s around near the studio. Make it a creative getaway to start the New Year off right.

Because of the Eclipse I had to cancel the August workshop.  So I am offering this October one as the last one of the year.  This time we will take a Shamanic Journey using paint.  We will ask the paint to give us information our life needs at this time.  It seems to be a very turbulent time and we could all use some wisdom from within to help us through the times ahead.  The paint will access that wisdom.  It will take us into non ordinary reality and show us what we need.  This process never fails to amaze me in showing my students strengths they didn’t know they had.  Save the date and let me know if you would like to join us for these two fabulous days of exploring our authentic selves.  Lets have some creative fun and let go as we explore that inner world that has no limits.

Any one can do this no previous art experience required. If you can hold a paint brush that is all you need.

All you need to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and bring a sac lunch. I will provide the rest along with healthy snacks and teas.

We start each morning at 10am and go to 5pm. I ask that you arrive between 9:30 and 9:50 so we can start right on time.

This Intuitive Painting Weekend will be about learning to let go and being free to explore the images want to come and help you in your life.  The paint always tells us what we need to know.  By playing with paint and following it where it wants you to go you learn a lot about yourself.  You will also be a witness and share with the others what you learn.  It is important to do this in a group and share the experience,  we learn a lot from each other each time.

I have been doing this workshop for over 10 years now and am always amazed how fun and transformation this process is. I think it is because it can only come from inside, not from outside influences, so it amazes you and strengthens your sense of self.  It is my honor to share this with you and help you have a better life.

Any one can do this no previous art experience required. I supply everything, all you need to do is come and participate and enjoy what wants to come.

This Intuitive Painting Weekend will be about learning to let go of  ego and painting from your deeper parts. You will learn to be outside of judgement and  let go of the critic and how it often holds you back. We will be free to explore and let the paint tell us what we need to know.

Announcing New 6 Week Study Group “FINDING THE GIFTS IN YOUR SHADOW” Group Starts Thursday Evenings, March 16, 2017 continuining through April 20, 2017.

Posted in Uncategorized on February 17, 2017 by Carolyn Winkler

Photo 29

This is a 6 week study group and each week we learn a new way to discover and integrate our shadows. This will be one of the most powerful self help 6 weeks you could ever do. I like to think of our Shadows as our best friends we buried deep in the basement under the cement floor of our psyche. Most importantly they are exactly what we need in our life today to help us be stronger and truer to our authentic selves. Once you discover them and integrate them back into your life you are stronger, better able to cope and more whole.

If you have taken my Intuitive Painting Workshop we always do a little shadow work and everyone always loves it. Often my students ask if they are taking my workshop for the second or third time “are we going to do that turn around thing again, I really liked that?” And yes, we always do. It is so powerful in such a simple way. You will be learning this technique and 5 others to free up the energy and regain the use of your shadow parts to create a better life.  One of my former PhD students said “This wasn’t scary at all.”  I think he like a lot of people think the Shadow is bad and scary.  It is not that you will become your Shadow but will be able to use it when you need to.  Usually when you need to stand up for or want to be true to yourself.

The importance of working with your Shadows is based on the work of Carl Jung, Debbie Ford and Ken Wilber. The Shadow holds the key to discover what it is you are not allowing and how that is unconsciously sabotaging your life.   The Shadow described by Carl Jung are the parts of us that we disowned and keep hidden even from ourselves. These are the parts we buried deep in our unconscious and were not allowed to have as we were growing up and becoming the acceptable good people we wanted to be. The ones that others will love. These include not only the Dark Shadow. what we dislike about others and don’t want but also the Light Shadow, what we admire in others and don’t allow ourselves to be.

These parts we wanted hidden did not go away they just became repressed and even stronger effecting us in many unconscious ways. As you learn to respect and love your Shadows and accept and welcome the gifts they have you become stronger, calmer and more whole. Your life becomes more energized because you free all the energy you used to hold them down and now can use in other more useful ways.

To sign up for this Study Group please email me at carolyn_winkler@comcast.com and I will add you to the list.  The cost for the 6 weeks is $35 per week, payable at each class. Or you can pay through Paypal the entire amount $210. The class is limited to 8 participants and is held at my Studio in North Portland.  Look forward to having you discover these valuable parts of yourself and feeling the results.

Each week everyone will process one aspect of their shadow.

My goal in teaching these weekends it to let everyone know they are creative and help them have a better life.   We all have inner worlds.  I teach you how to access and tap into them and discover strengths and wisdom you didn’t know you had.  Then you take that wisdom and create a better life.

*If you are from out of town and have always wanted to visit Portland there are lots of airbnb’s around.  Make it a creative getaway to start the New Year off right.

Anyone can do this, you don’t need any special skills. Everyone is born creative. If you can hold a paint brush and dip it in paint that is all you need. The paint will take you where you need to go.

All art supplies are provided. You don’t have to buy a thing.  All you need to do is show up, wear old clothes you can get paint on and bring a sac lunch. I will do the rest.
