Intuitive Painting:
Allies, Symbol and Story
for Awakening Your Medicine

Seven Wednesday Nights
September 20th - November 1st
6:30 - 9:30pm

Join Visionary Artist Katherine Skaggs for an Intuitive Painting, Shamanic Art experience to connect to your Allies, Symbol and Story for awakening your true soul self, and being in your power every day.

The Intuitive Painting process is designed to awaken your soul's innate creative intelligence and wisdom through focus, intention and playfulness. You will have an opportunity to experientially call forth your inner soul medicine, for clarity, guidance, and empowerment.

Each week we'll open a medicine wheel, call in our allies and helpers, drum journey and draw forth imagery, symbol and story to plant the seeds of your heart dreams, to nourish them, and to give form for their birth in your life. Through the Intuitive Painting process we'll call forth the deep wisdom of the subconscious for symbol and story to activate and guide your life.

This class is an opportunity to free yourself from limitations, constraints and old limiting beliefs and imprints. It is a time to break free, discover your voice and power to make a mark through color and symbol. It is a time to gain clarity of vision and receive assistance in focusing that new vision into the world.

Over this 7-week period we will also work with the container of the Medicine Wheel to hold our intentions and assist us in birthing our dreams through painting and form into our lives.
