Posted in Art, Art Workshops, Authentic Creativity, Authentic Self, Creative Ways to Empopwer Your Life, Creativity, intuition, Intuitive Painting, Intuitive Process Painting Workshop, Painting Workshops, Personal Growth, Self Discovery on February 15, 2011 by Carolyn Winkler

Join me in my studio April 9th and 10th for a journey deep into your self. This weekend is about finding that place inside you where your creative authentic self lives. We all live in a creative universe and are connected to it through our second attention we just need to know how to access it. This extraordinary weekend lets you play with paint, let go of rules and regulations, and discover deep creative parts you didn’t know were there. These two powerful days will help you change your life for the better.

I have been doing this for over 10 years and have seen student after student get stronger every day. By following my guidance and opening up your heart you find a more authentic expression of your self. It is like taking a shamanic journey into your soul. Your life will open up in wonderful ways and inspire you to stay on your path. One of my former students said it best. “My life was like a submarine and this opened up my hatch.”

I hope you can join me and a small tribe of like minded people for this two day retreat for yourself. The details are below. I will be in Mexico traveling the month of March this year so won’t be answering emails until I return. If you have any questions and want to register I suggest you do it now. You can pay through paypal by going to either of my websites http://www.spiritmaskjourneys.com or powerpaintingprocesss.com or leave me a message on this blog and I will get back to you when I return.

My students in South Africa

I am back from South Africa. What an amazing experience. Had a blast sharing this process with 9 fabulous South Africans. All had a breakthrough experience and proves once again how powerful this process is. I look forward to sharing this experience with you in my studio in North Portland on August 7-8. I am starting to register for this weekend now. Please let me know if you want to join us.

I also wanted to share with you some of the photos from the South Africa experience and give you an idea of what their paintings are like. Hope you enjoy them.

Testimonial from Lisa who did the painting above:
Hi Carolyn
Tx so much for the foties. The workshop was amazing. Definitely one I have put on top of my list. I can so see a need for this process in my area + would like to share this workshop with so many others. So once my studio is up + ready (should be in 2months) I will invite others 2 join me.
I have been in contact with Brenda + have discovered so much more about both our paintings. I will NOT be burning mine but rather hanging it up. I have bought matt acrylic seal to paint over.
I feel so honored to have been given the opportunity to attend ur workshop!
I noticed the ELK was the first animal image to come through. Then the CROW. These I painted over + without realizing, the WOLF found his own way to me. How exciting!
After the workshop I came down with terrible flu, infact I am in bed trying to shoo away this “flu gremlin” before my youngest daughters 17th birthday dinner. Getting flu for me after a healing process is a good sign, as I always have a deep healing shift when this happens. So tx for bringing it on hahahaha. Glad u had a safe trip back. Look 4ward 2hearing from u soon!

I am posting this summer workshop early because I am leaving for South Africa April thru June and wanted those of you that wish to take the next one to put it on your calendar. I know how busy our summers get so this lets you plan. While in South Africa I will be teaching workshops and traveling and not sure of my internet access. So if I don’t get back to you until June know that is the reason why.

Below is a painting from the last workshop by someone that had never painted before. Also the comment she made of her experience. I hope some of you decide to join me for this incredible experience of creative self discovery and I look forward to painting with you. Just click on photo for larger version.

“I had a profoundly cathartic experience in this painting workshop that left me feeling whole and clear from the inside. I have never played with paints in this way…and that is exactly what we did! Carolyn is incredibly gifted at creating and holding a safe and sacred space that allows for complete expression for whatever wants to emerge for the artist. I was genuinely surprised and very happy with my painting and look forward to sharing what I have learned here with my children as a way to process feelings and to become “unstuck.” You DO NOT have to be an artist to take this workshop…it is a fantastic and curious journey of self discovery that I will never, ever forget. Thank you Carolyn for being exactly the wonderful person that you are. I cannot thank you enough for the knowledge and passion that you shared with our group this weekend!!” Karli DuBois

*6 WEEK VISUAL JOURNALING STUDY GROUP FOR WOMEN* Feb 2nd thru Mar 9th, 2010

Posted in Art, Art Workshops, Authentic Self, Creative Ways to Empopwer Your Life, Creativity, Self Awareness, Self Discovery, Self Healing, Self Help, Visual Journaling, Womens Suppor Groups with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 8, 2010 by Carolyn Winkler


NEW VISUAL-JOURNALING STUDY GROUP FOR WOMEN
– Study Group

Testimonial – “I have spent most of my adult life trying to build a house for my soul. Through counseling and relationships I had collected the boards, the pipes, the wire, and the nails. But no matter how many times I stacked these materials together the best I could do was build some kind of lean-to. It was a good enough place to weather a storm but nothing like the house I wanted. The Intuitive Painting class I took with Carolyn gave me the stone I needed to build a strong foundation. And the Journaling class gave me the saw and hammer I needed to not only build a house for my soul but a home I am proud to share with the other’s.” — Tammy Gaylord

A Visual-Journaling Study Group is a small group of women coming together for 6 weeks to access and explore their emotions and find the messages, wisdom and guidance they carry within. They learn to recognize, shift and transform emotions by first receiving an image and then using developing questions to understanding the meaning the image it is trying to give. 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 needed for transformation, body, mind and cellular.

Our feelings communicate what our life needs and every emotion we have has an image attached. By accessing these images, our inner wisdom is brought to light and we are able to reduce stress, release anger, resolve conflicts, get in touch with our emotions and give voice to our 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 and tell you a story.
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 inner world.

Group meets weekly for 6 weeks, Tuesday evenings form 7 to 9, limited size 5 women. Please check my blog for the current schedules of new groups forming. Cost is $35 each weekly session for a total of $210. You will need a few inexpensive art supplies.
