– 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.

Soul Retrieval Weekend Using Paint

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.

Weekend of August 1st and 2nd at Spirit Mask Journeys Studio in Portland, Oregon.

Is this you?

You are interested in personal growth and long to express yourself

You want a safe way to explore your inner world and see what’s in your heart.
You always wanted to try painting but thought you had to have special training first.
You know your Authentic Self is in there somewhere but not sure how to reconnect.
You want to develop intuition and find the guidance it can give.

What the Weekend is Like!

This Soul Retrieval Weekend takes you safely and gently into the untapped mystery of your inner world. This fun filled painting process lets you freely play with paint and get reacquainted with creative, intuitive, authentic parts you think you may have lost. 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. One of my former students said it best, “My life was like a submarine and this open up my hatch.”

Workshop is Saturday and Sunday, 10 am  to 5 pm, August 1st and 2nd, at Spirit Mask Studio, North Portland. All materials and inspirational journey provided. Just wear old comfortable clothes you can get paint on, bring a sack lunch, an open heart and  curious mind.

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
