Just coming off the Spring Intuitive Painting Weekend and one of my students Mary Garvey wanted to do it again and asked me to please have another one right away.  The earliest I could do it is May 3-4 so wanted to announce that there will be one that weekend.   I’m calling it “FOLLOW THE PAINT WHERE YOU NEED TO GO” because that is what we do.  We follow the paint where it take us and share in the creative journey together.  It’s really fun and powerful and the paint does all the work.  Amazing things happen in just two days and the more times you do this the deeper you go.  So if you have ever wanted to paint using your intuition instead of your mind check your calendars and see if this weekend will work.  Let me know right away and I will add you to the list.  We already have 3 painters signed up so that leaves only 5 spaces left and

they fill up fast.

The cost is $180 for the 2 days of painting, Saturday and Sunday 10-5.  All paints, materials and inspiration are provided.  All you have to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and come hold a paint brush and let the paint take you where you need to go.   Limited to 8 students so save the date and let me know right away so i can put you on the list.

* All repeating students cost is discounted to $100.Image

I am calling this Intuitive Painting Weekend “WE’RE GOING IN”  because that is what one of my former students called it and what we actually do.  In this wonderful weekend of playing with paint we GO IN” and find the creative parts of ourselves we know are there. These are our authentic parts that want to guide us and give us the best lives possible.

I truly attribute my wonderful life to doing this work, because what we learn about ourselves during this weekend gives us a stronger sense of self and helps us create truer more fulfilling  lives.

Every Intuitive Weekend is different because I am different and share with you any new revelations I have found.  So no matter if your a first timer or have done it many times I promise you will grow.

I look forward to painting with your and sharing this process and seeing the wonderful paintings that come.  We GO IN without a plan, without knowing and what is revealed thru the paint is just what we need.   I love what John Kleese said about creativity.  “You need a space, you need time, you need more time, you need courage and you need a sense of humor.  If you are too serious you kill creativity.”  I give you all of these.

The cost is $180 for the 2 days of painting, Saturday and Sunday 10-5.  All paints, materials and inspiration are provided.  All you have to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and come hold a paint brush and let the paint take you where you need to go.   Limited to 8 students so save the date and let me know right away so i can put you on the list.

* All repeating students cost is discounted to $100.

As we go into the New Year of 2013 more and more of us are changing the way we do things.  What we need more of this coming year is intuition and how to utilize it in our art and life.  Whether that is painting, writing, dance or even therapy with clients.  Intuitive Painting can open up areas of your consciousness not available to your conscious mind.  This new way of knowing can help you figure out and solve lots of problems you haven’t been able to so far. This is about self discovery, the unknown and not having a plan.  Look for the surprises that come, they have the answers you seek.

Carl Jung and Malcolm Westcot the main researcher in Intuition of our day gave this description of a person that is Intuitive. 11 reasons to develop more intuition in your life and take my workshop.
Intuitive people tend to be:
1. unconventional and comfortable in their unconvention
2. confident
3. self-sufficient
4. emotionally involved in abstract issues, either in intellectual, academic terms or in human values.
5. willing to explore uncertainties and entertain doubts, and able to do so without fear.
6. able to reject or accept criticism as necessary
7. willing to change in ways they deemed appropriate
8. resistant to outside control and direction
9. independent
10. foresighted
11. spontaneous

Join me and a small group of painters for a wonderful weekend of self discovery, inner growth and greater creativity through paint.   The cost is $160 for the 2 days of painting, Saturday and Sunday 10-5.  All paints, materials and inspiration are provided.  All you have to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and come hold a paint brush and let the paint show you how to access the deep well of your intuition.   Limited to 8 students so save the date and let me know right away so i can put you on the list.

* All repeating students cost is discounted to $100.

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

DETAILS ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

The Workshop runs two full days, Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. It is held at my Studio, in Portland, Oregon. All you have to do is wear old comfortable clothes you can get paint on, bring a sack lunch, have an open heart and a curious mind and I will do the rest.

DISCOVER YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF WEEKEND RETREAT- APRIL 25TH-26TH

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on April 6, 2009 by Carolyn Winkler

After taking a little time off I am again offering my Intuitive Painting Weekend to find your authentic self. This retreat is for anyone wanting to know themselves better and create a more authentic life.
Anyone can do this, no experience required. We all have an authentic self wanting to communicate with us and express itself, it is just a matter of giving ourselves the time intention to listen to what it has to tell us. This weekend retreat of freely playing with paint helps you discover that authentic part of yourself, the part that is there no matter what. Without a plan, without judgement, without a right or wrong way to do it you are free to explore and discover who you really are. An authentic life is built from the inside out and unless we pay attention to our unique inner wisdom it is difficult to live an authentic life. In todays busy complicated world we are bombarded with outside influences and other peoples wants and demands. This makes it difficult to know our own inner self and what it is we really want and need in our life. Intuitive Painting is a fun, stress free way to bridge the gap, find your inner wisdom and bring it out into the world. This will be on of the most empowering weekends you have ever spent.

One of my former students said it best, “My life was like a submarine and this opened up my hatch.” If you are an experienced painter or a total beginner that knows nothing about art this process can help you be more authentic in your life. This weekend lets you to know when your on track and when your not, and most important how to know the difference so you can apply it to your life. Join me for a weekend retreat of discovering your authentic self and opening up your life. All you need is an open mind, an open heart and willingness to to explore, I provide the rest.

Weekend Workshop Saturday and Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm. Includes required E-Book INTUITIVE PAINTING ART TO EMPOWER YOUR LIFE and all art materials. Bring sack lunch both days, wear old clothes and I will do the rest.
Location: Spirit Mask Studio, North Portland. Limited to 10 participants.

Student 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/judgement 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.”
