This is an amazing painting created by Marianne Wilson Stein during the last workshop. I wanted to share it with all of you. I love her painting and the story that came from it. It is an amazing two days where you are free to create from deep within your heart. I hope you enjoy it as much as we all did. Please click on the painting so you can see the whole thing.

Marianne Wilson Stein
This is a painting I created at a weekend intuitive painting class facilitate by the amazing Carolyn Winkler. I highly recommend. Carolyn and the other participants gave me the space and safety to unlock my own intuitive creativity.

Goes with Marianne Steins painting.

Releasing the Dreams…
In the days before dreams, the world was made of water. It was dark and turbulent. The land was black and rich, full of every mineral, but there were no dreams. The earth goddess was still asleep in the deepest depths of the ocean. The sun god was hardly noticeable. And the world was left without dreams.
Buried deep within the sea was the vessel and the key. It was the way to unlock the land from the ocean and it was full of rich colors. The people of the earth searched and searched for it, but no one could find it. The priestesses were consulted. From their power of intuition they knew how to find the vessel and the key.

The priestesses told the people to find the sea turtle for it had survived for millions of years and he knew where the vessel and the key were hidden. The people called upon the turtle in the blackest depths of the sea to show them where it was.

Once found, the vessel and key floated to the surface and all the dreams that had ever been dreamed and all the dreams still to come were let out of the ocean and floated into the air; uniting the people of the land, water, wind and fire to be as one. To create the world they dream of…

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!

Welcome to the last of my Intuitive Painting Weekend Workshops for 2009, the second weekend of November 7th-8th. This weekend is for people that want to express themselves authentically, be more creative and discover what is in their heart. This process is about letting go and painting with the right side of your brain, so no experience necessary you already know and have everything you need.

Experienced artists and non-artists alike benefit from this creative weekend. Studies prove that how we feel about ourselves effects how much joy and inspiration we get out of life. This workshop lets you play, find joy and get back on an authentic track. Playing freely with the paint allows you to reach deeper parts of yourselves and listen to what they have to say. So if you want to create a more authentic life this is the weekend for you.

I have done this process with many people over the years and it never fails to give you exactly what you need. This is a free, non-judgmental, playful way to re-connect with who you really are. One of my former students said it best, “My life was like a submarine and this opened up my hatch.”

Testimonials

I cannot tell you how much I appreciated your kindness and guidance this weekend. I love the work that we did. I hope to do some more work with you in the future. Thank you!
“It was a great experience that I would recommend to anybody interested in letting go. Carolyn leads you through this experience very gently.” Paula Austin, Web Designer

All art materials and a copy of my e-book INTUITIVE PAINTING; Art to Empower Your Life are included. The class size is limited to 8 to insure that everyone has the right support. It goes from 10am to 5pm both Saturday and Sunday with a break for lunch. Just wear old clothes you can get paint on and bring a sac lunch.

Carolyn Winkler, Art Shaman and Creative Spirit Guide.

Native peoples ask….When did you stop dancing?  When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted? They say this is when you experienced soul loss.  My creative journeys help you get back on your path.

You want to develop intuition and find the guidance it can give.

What the Weekend is Like!

It is all about the process, letting go of judgment and not being in control, so you are free to discover what you need to know and let the painting spirits get you back on track.

*Starting October 7th* NEW VISUAL JOURNALING SUPPORT GROUP FOR WOMEN – FORMING NOW

Testimonail:
“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

VISUAL-JOURNALING SUPPORT GROUP FOR WOMEN

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 to 5 women. 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 http://www.spiritmaskjourneys.com. or my blog https://artalina.wordpress.com/ To register for a group or workshop or ask questions email me at info@spiritmaskjourneys.com.
