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


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.

Absolutely no experience necessary, you already have everything you need. All inspiration and art materials supplied.

Cost is $160 and includes all art supplies and a copy of my E-Book Intuitive Painting: Art to Empower Your Life. Class is limited to 10 people so everyone has personal attention and lots of time to paint. You can easily pay through Paypal or you can send a check to Carolyn Winkler, 1001 N. Baldwin Street, Portland Or. 97217. Just let me know you want to attend and I will put you on the list and you can pay closer to the time of the workshop.

To Find Out More and ask questions just Email me at or visit my websites or I will be out of the country April thru June so might not get back to you until after I return. Thanks for understanding.

Look forward to meeting you at the workshop.

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. No experience necessary, you have everything you need, this is a great freeing experience for advanced artist and beginners alike. We all could use a little Soul Retrieval now and then.

All art supplies and a copy of $10 E-Book Guide, Intuitive Painting: Art to Empower Your Life are included. Along with a group of kindred spirits to paint and explore. Class limited to 8 people so I advise you register right away. I now have Paypal option for paying by credit card. Just email me and request an invoice.

You can pay with your credit card or paypal account by clicking here.
