About This Event

PAINTING FROM THE SOURCE®

Originated by Aviva Gold in 1984, Painting From The Source® (PFTS®) is a deep, playful and often mysterious process for accessing intuition, creativity, and the knowing voice within. This simple, yet powerful approach to painting provides an opportunity for people who are trained or untrained in the arts to quiet the mind and re-connect with their essential creativity. PFTS® believes that we are all artists, and all capable of connecting with the profound creative Source we knew when we were children. Through painting with simple childlike materials, communicating with our painting, and group sharing in a safe and nurturing environment, Painting From The Source® allows anyone to discover a vast wealth of images, colors and stories that live within the same place from which our dreams arise. In PFTS there is the possibility of unearthing inexplicable surprises and serendipities. Besides bringing forth heart stirring images, many participants have found the PFTS experience to be a profound and even transformational experience.

Request that participants read my book "The Complete Painting From The Source", available from my web site or Amazon.

More:

PFTS is a painting workshop or retreat, where a group of people paint, share, move, vocalize, and create ritual together for healing, renewal, radical play and artful learning. Workshops can be one day or as many as seven. No prior art experience is necessary.

Creativity and sacred presence are sources the same way. The natural and ancient way to create authentic Art is healing to the maker, viewer and community. Similar to meditation, yoga, trance dance, chanting, and dream tending, spontaneous painting, is a potent and effective means to mystical revelatory states of consciousness with the bonus of a stirring visual record.

Painting From The Source® falls into a unique category of its own in which process painting is just one of many techniques. These techniques include Marathon painting, Gestalt therapy techniques, Jungian Active Imagination, principles of children’s art education, art therapy, catharsis, body awareness, energy healing, art as experience, channeling, dream work, principles of Shamanism, shape shifting, Animism, Sacred Ceremony, Birth Therapy, spontaneous theater, meditation, Mandela painting, and more. The Source Painting™ process can also incorporate, dance, authentic movement, music, sound-making, singing and journaling - sometimes these additions evolve naturally in the moment.

Aviva truly is a midwife of the Soul. Her painting Process and loving compassion helps me to surrender to the unknown, into the void birthing deeper connection to my Soul. Solveig, Art Therapist and Art Shaman Practitioner, Iceland

      My teacher - My mentor

    Aviva is the real deal if you're looking for an art medicine woman. I have painted for years with Aviva and was trained in Painting from the Source teacher training. I've seen her hold the space for anyone to go anywhere with their process.. She's safe and loving and strong and wise. This is the time to have the experience with this woman as you paint for your (the) process.
