The Painting Experience

is an unprecedented journey into the wild territory of painting directly from intuition. It’s a leap beyond the predicted and expected - a venture into color, form and image where no rules apply.

In these workshops, everyone is a beginner; people from all levels of experience are welcome, including those who have never picked up a paintbrush. You will be given the environment, methods, facilitation, and overview with which to do in-depth self-exploration that can lead to pivotal insights for generating effective change. The goal is free expression, with the emphasis on the creative process rather than on technique or expertise. The Painting Experience is an opportunity to embark on the greatest of all human journeys: embracing your own path and confidently following it.

The facilitators are people passionately committed to the imperative of self-knowledge in action. We are a group of professionals with extensive experience working on the front lines of human change and transformation, and we've had the privilege of making a real difference in the lives of countless people interested in exploring their full range of possibilities.

There is nothing to bring - complete materials are supplied.

"After working with Stewart, I recognize him as a spiritual teacher. Without ritual or dogma, he encourages the invisible forces of the universe flowing though each of us to become visible.  His teaching points towards the transcendent, using the path of our own vital creativity." ~ Hogen Bays, Co-Abbot of Great Vow Zen Monastery
