Rise Above Club: Presence

Explore each chapter of Whitney Freya’s book, Rise Above: Free Your Mind One Brushstroke at a Time, with me.  As a certified Creatively Fit Coach, I have trained with Whitney and worked through her book twice (so far).  In this session, we will focus on Presence.

“From present moment awareness, we get to access the ‘field of pure potentiality’.  In the present moment, we are not limited by our past experience, nor are we being constrained or distracted by our worry about the future.  In the present, we can choose from infinite possibilities- if we learn how to stay there long enough,” writes Whitney Freya.

Intuitive Painting 2-Day Workshop

I will guide you through warmup activities and a process of painting that focuses on playfulness, layering, and experimental mark-making to reveal personal imagery that can open you to your inner wisdom.  Intuitive painting is a style of painting that is relaxing and informative.  I have used it as part of my meditative practice with great success.  No art experience needed.  You’ll learn many techniques to help you relax in front of the blank canvas or paper.  This deeply personal painting practice focuses on process more than product.  It’s through the process that you can “Come Home to Your Self.”  Supply list and registration on York Art Associaiton website or by calling 717-755-0028.  Workshop is 10am to 4pm daily on June 29th and June 30th.  Bring a lunch and dress comfortably as we will also do a bit of movement and meditation.

Rise Above Club: Self-Love

Explore each chapter of Whitney Freya’s book, Rise Above: Free Your Mind One Brushstroke at a Time, with me.  As a certified Creatively Fit Coach, I have trained with Whitney and worked through her book twice (so far).  In this session, we will focus on Self-Love.

Many of us were not taught or encouraged to love ourselves unconditionally.  “In the process (of painting and conversation), you will observe your inner critic, your inner perfectionist, your inner ‘poor me’.  You can take back your power and tell those voices that they have been misinformed”, writes Whitney Freya.

Each session of the Rise Above Club includes discussion of the featured chapter, time to paint or work in an art journal, and meaningful conversation in a supportive space.

Rise Above Club: Freedom

Explore each chapter of Whitney Freya’s book, Rise Above: Free Your Mind One Brushstroke at a Time, with me.  As a certified Creatively Fit Coach, I have trained with Whitney and worked through her book twice (so far).  In this session, we will focus on Freedom.  “You are going to create the FEELING of freedom.  What does it feel like to be free from any expectations or limitations?… Your mind is NOT meant to captain the ship.  Your soul is.  Let’s see what insight we can gain from the canvas into what is holding us back”, writes Whitney.

Each session of the Rise Above Club includes discussion of the featured chapter, time to paint or work in an art journal, and meaningful conversation in a supportive space.

Rise Above Book Club Intro

I’m super-excited to be bringing Whitney Freya’s Rise Above: Free Your Mind One Brushstroke at a Time to York!  During this introductory session, I’ll be sharing why I’m leading this “more than a book club” book club (hint:  It inspired me to make major changes in my life.) I’ll also give an overview of the chapters and a hands-on experience to give you a taste of what is in store.

 

It will be a 12-week course the second and fourth Thursdays from June 13 to Dec 12 (no meeting on Thanksgiving), from 5:30-7:30pm.  It’s more than a book club because it is discussion AND guided open studio time.  Bring a canvas (16″x20″) and I’ll provide the paint and brushes.  No art experience is needed.  This is about the process of self-discovery and awareness not a product, although, you will find that what is revealed on the canvas is perfect for where you are now.

 

Cost is $240 through June 13th if you purchase the package.  Otherwise, it is $30 per session.  Come for one… but you’ll want to come for all.  Register at Brownpapertickets.com.  Tickets are non-refundable.

 

Topics include:  Freedom, Self-Love, Presence, Abundance, Fearlessness, Clarity, Intuition, Spaciousness, Peace, Ease and Grace, Joy, and Personal Symbols.

 

Email me for details or if you have any questions.  Intro session is FREE.  This is a wonderful way to do some self-awareness exploration but is not to be seen as therapy.

Intuitive Painting 101

Intuitive painting is a relaxed, mindful approach to creativity that uses words, colors, and mark-making to build up layers that reveal personal meaning and symbolism for the artist.  It allows participants to focus on process and self-discovery rather than product.  No art experience needed.  $35.  Supply list available through York Art Association, York PA.

Register at yorkartassociation.org or at 717-755-0028.

Finding Your Personal Sacred Symbol

Hand of Fatima: My Symbol for 2019

 

Finding Your Personal Sacred Symbol

Symbols hold great power and meaning.  From the earliest cave paintings to pop-culture images of peace signs and hearts, symbols speak to who we are and what matters to us.  Through guided visualizations, experiential activities to help you tap into your inner wisdom, and painting, we will relax and allow the images to flow freely.  By building layers on a canvas, we will reveal the sacred symbols that hold significance for us NOW.  No art experience needed.  Bring a journal and something to write with.

$65 includes all supplies.  Register by calling Radiance at 717-290-1517.
