Intuitive Expression workshops utilize painting as a tool for self – discovery, healing, and spiritual exploration. This is a revolutionary way of unblocking creative potential and facilitating personal transformation.
Through the use of spontaneous intuition and the Point Zero method of self – questioning, participants find their authentic painting expression and free themselves from fears and judgments.
Using paints and brushes, you can dip into an unlimited creative flow. To paint without having to live up to any expectations, to paint for the joy of doing rather than for the product, is to explore the act of creation in an intimate way. Expressing our creativity is a way to get in touch with our true nature and awaken to the mystery of our lives. When creating with openness and vulnerability, you will find healing and profound understanding. The process will teach you how to be in the present moment with whatever arises.
In the studio you will experience a sacred space where you can express yourself fully. It’s a space where you can explore your creative process in an atmosphere of respectful non-judgment, where there is no competition or comparison. Paintings are not critiqued or analyzed, they are only a by-product of your inner process.
Intuitive Expression workshops are given in a supportive environment, stimulating free play and self-realization. No art experience is necessary, just the desire to unleash your natural spontaneous self-expression.Natalia Rosenfeld M.A. has studied art in Russia and US. Since 1997 she worked as freelance sculptor and painting teacher. Natalia has found a union of her two passions, spirituality and creativity in the Point Zero method developed by well-known teacher, writer and painter Michele Cassou. Natalia trained and worked with Michele for 10 years as well as led her own workshops around the globe.

Since its inception, the group has grown to some twenty-five members.
