In my painting explorations, I learned to listen within and discover the voice inside me that knew my own truth. At first it was a vague feeling, a whisper, and I had trouble understanding what it was saying until I learned to turn down the volume of the outside world. I uncovered my intuition, and relearned to trust what it told me. I gained clarity on repeated negative behaviour and choices that I could then release and make space for better choices. And I gradually found a sense of freedom to truly show up in the world in a way that honoured my deeper self.
Through the Color of Woman painting method, with ritual and reflection, you can create a new foundation where you are the author of your life. It is a building block to developing inner strength, and a safety net to help you know which path to take. You will be able to deepen into intuition and self-trust.
Discover your own inner voice of wisdom on this creative journey of painting and guided visualisation to Meet Your Inner Guide.
A special note to beginner painters:
The enormous range of art materials and techniques available is truly overwhelming and mysterious. This class is held within a space of exploration and play, curiosity, and of nurturing the inner child who draws and paints simply because it is fun. Many of us have art wounds around being criticised or ridiculed for our creative expression when we were younger, and so we develop our self-criticism and comparison-itis to a point where we are paralysed by fear. There is no expectation or requirement to share your work, create a masterpiece or any other outcome other than to explore and try and see what comes up for you, although I have found my students feel surprised and happy in their creations and feel the medicine of being connected to their guide. However, this is your story, and you get to write it your way. The joy is in the process, in allowing yourself to immerse in the creative flow.
It is normal to feel hesitation when considering signing up to a painting class. Even experienced artists feel this! This course is designed as a space of exploration and play, and curiosity. Nurturing the part of you who draws and paints simply because it is fun. Through painting, ritual and reflection, you can create a new foundation where you are the author of your life. I see my role as a mentor in holding your hand as you dip your toe into new creative possibilities, and grow in confidence and skills.
