How would it feel to experience the "Ah Ha" moment of where your joy, truth and balance can be found? And to be able to go back to that feeling and knowledge by simply looking at your painting?
Have you always wanted to paint but weren't sure where to start? Or looking for a new way to express yourself?
Would you like to be with like-minded friends old and new for an evening of inspirational and empowering creativity and clarity?
What is INTENTIONAL CREATIVITY...
Intentional Creativity is a guided step-by-step method of painting or other forms of creativity that can release blocks, transform old stories into empowering new endings, and create clarity and vision for the future. Everything within us, past, present, and future, lives in a story. By creating with mindfulness and intention, whether making a soup, planting a garden, writing a business plan or creating a painting, we are more present because we chose to be. The results are different than if we are not paying attention. Activating both sides of the brain helps to discover something new or forgotten.
We'll start with a Red Thread Ceremony as a simple yet meaningful icebreaker to introduce ourselves and connect . The red thread is a universal symbol used in many cultures to create connection, deep listening, transformation, education, inspiration and a very memorable moment.
Then Certified Intentional Creativity Teacher and Coach Kerry Lee will lead a guided visualization, an imaginary story to help you access your most authentic truths to bring joy and balance to your life. A guided visualization is a mindfulness moment. Everyone is invited to relax in their body, let go of thoughts and use their imagination as Kerry Lee tells a visual story. This allows you to tap into your wise inner self and intuition where personal truth lives. During the story, Kerry Lee will ask questions that guide discovery, the meaning for the symbolic parts of the tree. The story has scenes or images that relate to the parts of the painting we'll create.
No artistic experience is needed! Only an open heart and open mind to discover something new. There will be a printed outline template for those that prefer not to draw their tree and landscape. You will journal and color it in only. Or you can choose a blank piece of 18" x 24" 140 lb watercolor paper for those who want to get creative with your own version of the tree and landscape drawing symbolic image in your own way as well.
