Announcing New Spring INTUITIVE PAINTING Workshop “HONORING THE RAVEN WITHIN YOU”- May 26-27, 2012 at my studio Spirit Mask Journeys North Portland, Oregon.

My new Intuitive Painting Weekend focuses on the Trans-formative Powers of the Raven to help you be more creative and self expressive in your life.  According to Zuni legends Ravens have a magic and special ability to transform and heal.  They offer guidance for deep understanding of our non material realms were all creativity and healing begins. One of the most important things you can ever do is be creative, express yourself and bring it to the world.   Join me in this Magical Weekend as we play with paint, honor the spirit of Raven and explore our deepest selves.

I chose to honor the spirit of Raven because of personal experiences I have had.  The most powerful being when a Raven actually landed on my shoulder while I was walking in the forest with one of my Medicine Wheel Sisters last summer.   This year on my travels to Tucson I bought 3 Zuni Fetishes, 2 Ravens and 1 Six Direction Bear from a distinguished Zuni carver at the Native American Art Festival.  It was because of these fetishes and wanting to learn more about them in Zuni Mythology that I discovered the direct connection to their powers and the power of Intuitive Painting to guide you to the creative realm.  I look forward to exploring with you what Raven wants you to know.

There is room for 8 students in this class so register early.  No previous art experience needed, if you can hold a paint brush you can do this.  If you are an experienced artist this can help you learn a new way to paint or breakout of any any artistic ruts. The cost is $160 for the 2 days of painting, Saturday and Sunday 10-5, and all paints, matierals and inspiration are provided.  All you have to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and come and let go.  All repeating students and the cost is discounted $100.  To register or ask questions just email me carolyn_winkler@comcast.net .    Look forward to painting with you.

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…

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.

This painting was done in the last workshop by someone that had never painted before. It is subtle so please click on the image to enlarge to see it. It represents the spirit world looking back to the material world.


Another painting from the last workshop representing the hidden heart we all have inside.

FINDING THE SACRED ARTIST IN YOUR HEART
What we all have to offer to the world is our uniqueness. This is what is sacred about us and something only we have. Intuitive Painting gives us the opportunity to explore deep inside and uncover what this gift is so we can live a more sacred authentic life.

This workshop is for anyone that needs to tap those deeper sacred parts, be free without pressure to perform, bypass all the critical voices and get back the joy of your creative self. Once you reconnect you will never be the same.

Perhaps you always wanted to try painting but just didn’t feel like you could this your opportunity to come and play. Through this sacred play you will discover gifts and strengths you didn’t know were there. I have been doing this workshop for over 10 years and helped many students find their way, that is why I know you can too. I hope you can join me for this powerful weekend of personal transformation, the details are below.

Absolutely anyone can do this, no previous art experience required. It is excellent for total beginners painting for the first time and the professional artists that would like to reignite their creative sparks.

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!
