Painting the (In)visible: Exploring The Outer Reaches Of Inner Space
Painting the (In)Visible is a journey inward to the source of all creativity. It is an exploration of the inner dimension that is so often neglected and ignored in our day to day lives. During this workshop we will be illuminating the inner world that remains invisible to us most of the time. We will be traveling to the Inner Visible Realms.
Painting the (In)Visible is a quest to the deepest most fundamental pure creative energy there is. That place that dwells within each one of us that is the fountain of our life energy. We are going to the creative core of life itself by using spontaneous imagery, guided meditations, creative writing, and sound work to open a portal to the inner dimensions of our being. We will be engaging and activating all of our senses to awaken our spirits in mindfulness and awareness as we step into the flow of creative waters that ebb and flow inside of us constantly.
Our inner world is always speaking to us. Unfortunately, many of us have lost the ability to listen as the demands of the outer world are so persistent and so compelling. In addition, our inner world speaks to us in the form of archetypes, dream time images, and irrational imagery. Our rational logical mind is usually at a loss to interpret the seemingly meaningless and confusing symbols and suggestions that arise from deep within. We usually filter them out as useless information not helpful to accomplish a task in the immediate present.
However, its deeply important that we tap back into this fountain of energy that is an expression of our true source of aliveness. Allowing ourselves to enter this realm and express from this place without the ego mind editing, limiting, or controlling our experience is essential to accessing this energy in our daily lives. It is essential to bring the power of creativity to our every day problems and issues so we can lead more fulfilled and engaged lives.
Over this 2 and half day period you will experience:
- Guided meditations
- Creative writing exercises
- The Wild Heart Expressive Arts Painting Process
- Expressive movement
- Sound work
You may also experience
- Deep flow states
- Inexplicable synchronicity
- Divine meaningless experience
- Your own inner wisdom and guidance
- Delight, wonder, and awe at the power of creativity to nourish you
How is this different from a regular painting class?
We will be bringing in other modalities and sensory experiences to help evoke and engage our innermost being. We will be focusing specifically on the internal prompts, suggestions, imagery, and emotions that arise when being creative. We will be following the thread of our hearts desire with movement, writing, painting, and sound to the deepest aspects of our being.

What will be required of me? Do I need art experience?
