art, creativity, Painting

Annie RousseauJoin Annie Rousseau for a weekend painting retreat at our beautiful Bethlehem Center in NanaimoBritish Columbia. 

In this workshop, everyone is welcome, even if you have never picked up a paintbrush. The goal is free expression, with the emphasis on the creative process rather than technique.

Process painting sets forces in motion that facilitates personal transformation – catalyzing and accelerating each person’s unique path of growth and individuation.

The practice of painting for process – which is an intuitive action with a goal. – facilitates greater alignment with authentic presence, grace and radical trust in the world.

Facilitated by Annie Rousseau

Our focus this weekend will be on the creative process, with an emphasis on the journey rather than on the finished work of art. In a studio environment free of judgement and critique, we’ll invite you to paint without a plan and trust your spontaneous nature. The results are unexpected and intriguing — very often a wild vein of passion is awakened within you that will not go back to sleep long after the workshop has ended.
