What you'll do

In the words of Fritz Perls "Lose your mind and come to your senses." Take a day and practice this profound message in the medium of paint. YOU ABSOLUTELY DO NOT NEED EXPERIENCE PAINTING!!!
After introductions we will start with some movement and move into a deep and relaxing guided meditation. This journey will take us into the mysterious territory of our past lives. We will use these images and sensations along with movement and support to create a painting. We'll experience the act of painting with freedom and let go of painting as a product with a price tag. After we finish our paintings we'll have time to debrief about the experience in a sharing circle.
Other things to note
This workshop is not therapy but VERY therapeutic. Coming with an open mind can enhance your experience.

Mary created a warm, welcoming experience. I immediately felt comfortable having a new experience. The location couldn't be more perfect; we watched the tide come in as we mediated on a question you're wrestling with, seeking wisdom on the answer in a few ways, free form painting being one of them. It was a delight and emotional at times. I left with surprising insight, another tool in my emotional toolbox, and having had a good time.

I totally felt like an artist at this experience ever though I’m not! Mary is a wonderful facilitator- knowledgeable, supportive, kind, and funny! The location is to die for- I was instantly jealous of the view through the bank of windows to the water. This experience is one of a kind. You won’t regret spending these hours immersed in art in a wonderful location with a great host.

My experience with Mary and her workshop, Painting Your Past Life, has gifted me with an increased sense of personal freedom. Mary created a way for me to dig deep into myself and pull things up that, otherwise, would never have seen the light of day. I found the experience liberating in a way that informs all the other aspects of my life. Thank you Mary!

This was an amazing experience. By journeying and meditation, Mary has gently guided us to areas of our soul that - somewhere along the way through our life - have been touched in ways that still move us today - sometimes hidden in the depth of our unconsciousness. Under the impression of these dives into some of those deeper layers we continued to explore and express ourselves through color on paper. It was amazing to see how the images from inside reflected on the outside. There is so much more to say, but let me round up this review by writing that it was a spiritual, joyful and educational event. I highly recommend this experience and look forward to participating again. Thank you Mary and Satona for sharing memorable hours.

I had a wonderful experience. I continued to observe my feelings and images such as my distant memory and inspiration from this land during deep meditation. For example, fear, curiously, and relief. Tears came naturally. It was mysterious. My feelings have changed during painting. I got freedom. Thank you for a great time, Mary and Gisela.
