Awaken the Inner Artist
A Women's Intuitive Creativity and Painting Immersion

Saturday, November 13th - 9am to 5pm
Sunday, November 14th, 9am to 5pm

Within Your Very Being Resides the Spark of the Artist

Imagination • Curiosity • Childlike Wonderment • Fearless, Courageous, Creativity

Awakening the Inner Artist is the Awakening of the Soul's Creative Powers.

Whether you are a seasoned artist or beginner, Katherine will lay out how to work with the materials, how to work with color, symbolism, and intention to connect to your essence, as well as how to connect to and paint the vision and essence of your Inner Artist. You will work with opening a safe and sacred space for diving deep into your creativity and imagination, to open the doorway to visioning, and how to bring that to a canvas.

What is the Weekend About?

This sacred women's weekend is a time to retreat into the inner spaces of your Divine Creative Self, Your Inner Artist. The studio space will become the sacred temple space to call forth the power of your self-expression. Ceremony, ritual, meditation and inner journey spaces will open the creative flow. It is a time to say YES to your inner knowing.

Creativity and Curiosity

With canvas, paint, and the power of your curiosity, we will explore your soul's inner symbol system, awakening your intuitive creativity, and its power to support you in creating the life you want.

What if you could create a more loving, exciting, peace-filled, and abundant life? What if you can edit our life story and empower yourself as story teller and story maker? Are you ready to expand your story into greater harmony, love, and joy? Awakening the Inner Artist is an experience of Awakening Your Soul Spark. There is nothing more important than realizing you are the Creative Spark who directs your life.

Everyone of us is a creative being. If you don't think of yourself as an artist, it is time to reconsider that you are born a creative being, even if you don't draw, paint, sing, dance or such. You imagine and create your life each day. It is within you. It drives your choices and responses to the world. Becoming aware of this divine spark within your very being is part of your journey to awakening your true nature. With intention, curiosity, and the courage to show up, you have the opportunity to awaken and engage this divine spark in your every day consciousness. This weekend is a time to connect to your Divine Inner Artist Spark, and bring her forth.

Your Imagination and Childlike Wonderment

This weekend is also about cultivating a safe and creative space to return to your innocence and purity where your Childlike Wonderment and Imagination can flourish again. Are you tired of the adulting? Are you ready to laugh again, and move into the freedom of play? How would you like to imagine again?

There will be time to clean and clear the energies that are born of old worn out stories that no longer can go on the ride of our lives. As we sacredly release through the power of sacred destruction and paint, we can add color, hope, and wonderment back into our stories of creation. With intention, courage, and freedom to color our canvases with free flowing energy and form, we redirect the patterns of our lives into greater beauty and harmony. The external canvas and paint we use is the holographic expression of our soul changing directions into greater alignment with our soul path that is harmonious and joyful once again.

Reclaim the Power to Boldly Make a Stroke on the Canvas of Your Life

Through the intuitive painting process, shamanic journey and meditation, prayer, intention, and art play, gain a greater sense of your power to create the life you want. Imagine your life as the canvas of your soul, the place where you add color, pattern and form each day through your intention, or lack there of. This weekend will support you in becoming more intentional and conscious of how you direct the life you have to live. It will also support you in 'painting out' the parts you may not experience as in alignment, so you can 'recreate and paint anew' your life in ways that sing and express the true song of your soul.
