Process painting shows us that we can let go into our world – into the unfolding, ongoing movement of life itself with all its surprises, delights and challenges. This weekend, we explore the relationship between painting and mindfulness, bringing special attention to using process painting as a tool for deepening awareness.

Join us and discover the courage to trust the spontaneous aspect of your own nature.

Everyone with an interest in exploring the creative process through expressive painting is welcome: no prior experience in painting or meditative practice is required. We’ll all be starting from beginner's mind.

Tuition: $450 ~ Your tuition includes all art materials, over 12 hours of facilitated painting sessions, group discussion circles in supportive community, a video presentation about creativity and the practice of art as process.

Note:  Two private rooms are now available for accommodations. Private bath, shared kitchen. $85/night.

  Refer a friend who registers and both save $75! Use code: LAFRIEND     (Enter their name on the checkout page.)
