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.

To register and ask questions just email me carolyn_winkler@comcast.net or call me at 503 734-6516 .    Look forward to painting with you in this new year.

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!

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

*BEFRIENDING YOUR SHADOW* New Weekly Study Group – Starts Thursday Feb 11 – Mar 12, 2010

Posted in Authentic Self, Class, Creative Ways to Empopwer Your Life, Depression, Discovering Your Shadow, Healing, Inner Wisdom, Personal Growth, Self Awareness, Self Discovery, Self Healing, Self Help, Shadow, Support Group for Women with tags , , , , , on January 11, 2010 by Carolyn Winkler

DISCOVERING THE GIFTS OF YOUR SHADOW WEEKLY STUDY GROUP

This is a study group for you to befriend your shadows by taking whatever person or situation is bothering or disgusting you the most and turning it into the gift you need.

Once you understand what that is, and how you can benefit from it, it transforms and you are no longer bothered or disturbed and can now use it in your life. You can never have complete peace until you learn to do this.

Based on the work of Debbie Ford and her book “The Dark Side of The Light Chasers,” we will study how our Shadow helps us become who we are and holds the gifts to empower our lives. Discovering your shadows and its gifts is probably the most freeing experience you can have. As Debbie Ford describes it, “Imagine trying to hold a beach ball under water, how much energy that takes and when it gets loose it pops up and hits you in the face.” This is how your Shadow works, it is always there trying to give you the balance your life needs and pops up to hit you until you finely get the message your life needs.

Group meets weekly, Thursday evenings 7 to 9 pm or afternoons 1 to 3, for 6 weeks. Cost is $35 dollars per week, can be paid weekly or at beginning of group. Group meets at my studio in North Portland. Group is limited to 8 people.

Please check my website http://www.spiritmaskjourneys.com for more information. To register please email me and be sure to include the afternoon or evening time you prefer.

*6 WEEK VISUAL JOURNALING STUDY GROUP FOR WOMEN* Feb 2nd thru Mar 9th, 2010

NEW VISUAL-JOURNALING STUDY GROUP FOR WOMEN
– 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.

Spirits Behind The Masks – One Day Workshop
Saturday February 27th, 2010, from 10 to 3.

In this afternoon of mask making you discover a lot about yourself and how to communicate with the different parts of yourself not usually noticed in your everyday life. You unmask important symbols for what is needed in your life.

Absolutely anyone can do this and have a really good time. You can watch a short video at http://www.vimeo.com/806775. In the workshop you will learn 5 different fun ways to make simple masks and see what wants to emerge.

This is a great activity to do with a group because everyone has a really good time, you explore a little of your creative spirit and at the end we all wear the masks and dance them and have a really good time.

Cost is $97 and includes a free copy of my e book Spirits Behind the Mask: Portals To The Emerging Self. All materials and inspiration provided. Just bring a sack lunch for the break.

To register just email me at info@spiritmaskjourneys.com. The class is limited to 10 people so must check with me first before paying by PayPal or sending a check.
