Art as a Spiritual Path Workshop
The practice of painting is healing and meditative. No experience is necessary as we transform our everyday consciousness into the inner artist that lives in each of us. The week is designed to introduce the possibility that you are an artist, and that the artist path is one of joy, insight and awareness.
Our days begin with meditation, dream work and sharing about our paintings. Then we paint! Paul and an assistant provide personal instruction and one-on-one help with techniques. In just a few days, you can finish a colorful painting that reveals many of the deep inner patterns that connect you with your soul. “In my 30 years of teaching,” said Paul, “I have never seen one painting that was not beautiful.” After seeing mandalas made during Paul’s workshop, Eckhart Tolle commented, “These paintings carry a healing presence.” Deepak Chopra said, “These paintings are archetypal manifestations of higher consciousness.”
After the workshop, you will have the foundation for painting sacred art and mandalas at home, as you continue on this path of self-discovery and the newfound relationship to art and your soul. ($25 materials fee will be added to the workshop cost.)
