BREAKTHROUGH INTUITIVE PAINTING -I am an Inner World Tour Guide and this weekend is about you learning to go inside, discover who you really are and connecting with your authentic self.


One of my former students really put it best, “It was like I was a submarine and this opened up my hatch.”

2 Days Saturday and Sunday August 23- 24, 10am to 5pm.

This workshop helps you get in your inner flow and actually experience the discoveries that you make. The paintings take you on the journey and show you the way to reach into your heart. Using your intuition you discover who you are and what you want in life.

Testimonial “What a treat to see how the painting evolved!! I can’t thank you enough for the experience. I feel calmer, happier and much more in touch with my joyful 6 year old self. It was so freeing for me to find that place of pure joy, no expectation, and just play. It was also so instructional for me to feel the energy sink to my feet when I started to develop an agenda/judgment about what I was doing. Honestly, Carolyn, it was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a looooong time (and the best money I have ever spent) and I look forward to working with you again soon.” Linda Klein, MD

The July Thursday evening Visual Journaling Support Group for Women is full and so wanted to start another one on Tuesday evenings at my home in North Portland. Below is the information about the workshop and what is covered in the group over the six week commitment. This is some of the most powerful work I have done and look forward to working with and showing you the incrediable resource we all have within us to help us guide and understand our lives.

New Visual Journaling Support Group for Women for Accessing and Transforming Feelings and Emotions. This is a six week commitment of using Visual Journaling to Access, Release and Transform emotions. Images Express what words cannot. By setting a clear intention, centering in body awareness, using guided visualization and then drawing the images that come, you are able to understand and make changes on all three levels, body, mind and cellular. Our feelings communicate what we need. By accessing this inner wisdom you reduce stress, release anger, resolve conflicts, get in touch with emotions and give voice to your soul. The body always knows and guides you to the place you need to go. Each week you will learn something new.

Week 1- Access and Express Your Emotions

Week 2- Access, Release and transform your Stress-producing emotions.

Week 3- Let your images speak.

Week 4- Overcoming your fears.

Week 5-Resolving your inner conflicts.

Week 6-Visual Journaling as a lifelong practice.

Anyone can do this. You don’t need to know anything about using art materials or how to draw. You just need the desire and courage to explore, and open up the dialogue between your inner and outer worlds. Unlike regular journaling that uses language and the left brain, this is a direct right brain connection to your spirit world.

Group meets weekly on Tuesday evenings form 7 to 9, limited size 5 to 10 women. We will start as soon as we have 5. Cost is $35 each weekly session for a total of $210. You will need a few inexpensive supplies. To know more about me and what I do please visit my website or my blog To register for a group or workshop or ask questions email me at
