Intuitive Creativity Workshop
November 9, 2019 @ 13:00 - 17:00CHF120 – CHF130
My story started some time ago in Romania, where I was born in a family of 3 different cultures: Greek, German and Ukrainian. Soon after I had finished my engineering education, I left Romania and I lived in different countries as a global nomad. At some point in my life I had a regular office job and eventually a bore out. I saved myself quitting it and retreating into Hindu and Buddhist philosophy. A 2 year stay in an Ashram followed. This altered not just my world views and my beliefs but also influenced the way I express myself in art. I paint with my hands but my feelings, emotions and my intuition are in charge; the hand is just a tool. I never know how a paining is going to look like in the end. It is always a surprise to me. All I am doing is to stay as much as possible in a meditative, no-thought, neutral state of mind and let the intuition do the work, pick the right color, move the canvas, stroke the brush in the right direction.
Ana is organising Painting Retreats in Italy and Switzerland every year. You can find out more details here: https://www.

Learn Practical and Inspirational Techniques to Ignite your Creativity
What kind of experience are you craving, and what are you willing to let go of in order to have the experience?
Intuitive Spontaneous Creativity offers a wonderful opportunity to release your need of control, go deep beneath the layers of your daily existence, and respond spontaneously to always changing events. In this way, intuitive painting allows us to experience and discover ourselves through colors, shapes and forms. It is about honoring what is coming spontaneously into your mind; it is about trusting your heart and doing what feels genuinely interesting along the way.
We are going to play with colors. Why not give it a try? Why not pick up a brush and see where it leads you? Why not try to listen to what the craves of your soul are? It is all about what is happening inside when you paint.
My techniques and exercises are geared to help people reclaim or expand their sense of exploration, wonder, and fun.Great artists have always been extremely playful in their work. The Intuitive Spontaneous Creativity Workshop emphasized the importance of fun and playfulness in any creative endeavor.
