Why take an intuitive painting workshop or retreat?

To rediscover your juicy side, giving your left brain a day (or four)  off.
To experience painting from a place of freedom and openness rather than criticism and shut down
To receive guidance by a creativity coach–trained in the loving art of helping you open and take the next step.
To experience intuitive painting in a small group and  sacred space with inspired music, poetry and soulful conversation.
To jump start your art making or discover your inner artist.
To allow yourself time and space to be inspired .
