Progression 6

Join me for this life changing 6 weeks Support Group.  This is some of the most powerful work you will ever do.  Based on my training with Debbie Ford and my experience developing Affirmative Innergetics I gift to you the techniques of integrating your Shadow and how that frees up a lot of energy not available to you now.  We will dive deep in to the basement and bring up exactly what you need.  I promise this support group will change your life.  Come and learn to explore the following and integrate the strengths you discover back into your life. Here’s what we will cover each week.

Learn what exactly is the Shadow and How Does it Work?
How do you find your Shadows gift and how this helps you?
What is my Story and how does it trap me?
What would you need to be wrong about to have what you want in life?
Who do I blame for the conditions in my life?
How many years have I been using these excuses?

Class is held 6 Thursday evenings starting July 25th ending August 29th, from 7 to 9, at my studio in North Portland. Cost is $30 each meeting for a total of $180, paid at time you sign up.  Group is limited to 9 so we have plenty of time to work on personal issues.

One of the most important things you will ever do is work with your Shadows. This often misunderstood part of us is a huge key to our happiness but is seldom addressed. It is key to knowing how to handle upsets when they come along.

So bring what ever is bothering you it can be turned around to be come one of your greatest strengths. Whether it is a person that drives you crazy and you can’t stand, some awful situation that keeps happening no matter how much you try to avoid it or something that you always wanted but never seem to get. These are the problems we will work on each week.

I promise you will uncover the gifts these Shadow parts hold for you and integrate them back into your life. It is not that you will become this Shadow  you have hidden away but will be free to use it’s strengths.

To register or ask questions please email me at carolyn_winkler@comcast.net. or call 503 734-6516. I will add you to the list and let you know the rest of the materials you will need to bring. Look forward to doing this wonderful work with you and teaching you these techniques.

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

Posted in Art, Art Workshops, Authentic Self, Intuitive Painting, Intuitive Process Painting Workshop, Painting Workshops, Personal Growth, Shadow Work, Shamanic Art with tags on April 6, 2012 by Carolyn Winkler

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…

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.

Through this sacred play you will discover gifts and strengths you didn’t know were there.

I hope you can join me for this powerful weekend of personal transformation, the details are below.

So if you are looking for a great, fun way to be in touch with your creative authentic self mark your calendars and sign up now for the Fall 2010 INTUITIVE PAINTING WEEKEND. Come explore with me and a small group of kindred spirits as we take a journey into our authentic selves just by playing with paint.

Anyone can do this no previous art experience required. We all have creative spirits that want to emerge and they have healing powers we all can use. This is a painting weekend for your soul and will have deep personal meaning just for you. There is something very special about doing this in a group and witnessing others as they take their journeys sharing what they learn. You really do get a clearer sense of how important is to be authentic as you live your life.

What a former student had to say about the weekend:
Carolyn, thank you, thank you, thank you! I had such an expanding, opening experience in the painting weekend. I truly believe those two days painting in your studio have changed my life! I love looking at my paintings, and at the fun and wonderful photos you and Pamela sent. I just looked at my bicycle painting again, and it just makes me smile every time I see it!
Deborah LMT, Acupuncturists

Each workshop is a little different because I am different and this time I will teach you a few painting techniques I have picked up along the way. This will help you coax out an image from the mystery of the paint and give you more ways to explore and see what wants to emerge. You will be amazed at the paintings that come and how much fun you have making them. They come from our deepest parts and always touch our heart.
