TRANSFORMING AND FREEING OURSELVES FROM ANYTHING THAT IS HOLDING US BACK, ENABLING US TO FLY FREE, AND ALLOWING US TO REALISE WHO WE TRULY ARE; MIRACULOUS, SPONTANEOUS, AND CREATIVE BEINGS. LOOKING AT OUR SOUL PATH AND CONNECTING TO OUR JOYFUL AND SPONTANEOUS ENERGY.
Butterflies have been symbolic of breaking free for me in my lifetime journey. I had already been to two of
Christine's workshops so booked myself on the butterfly workshop for my day of therapy. It's had to sum up in
words how wonderful Christine's workshops are - they are just fabulous and will stay with you for several days
afterwards. They are my absolute treat for myself when I need some TLC! I had very definite ideas about how I
wanted my painting to look as I drove up in the car. I'd even started thinking of colours to go in my treatment
room! Once there and after a creative meditation, all my preconceived ideas went totally out the window and I just
went with the flow. I came away with a sparkly creation that summed up how far I had come out of the grey
depression, I'm free to fly now and be myself. A fabulous day of recharging my batteries and celebrating my
emerging creative spirit! Rosie, somerset
"The butterfly workshop that I went to with Christine recently was an amazing experience. We began with a quiet time to focus our energy and do a short visualisation. Then it was time to paint. I was invited to put some paint on the large canvas I had selected. I was amazed at how challenging I found it to let go and let my creativity flow. It was hard to let go of having to get it ‘right’ and the fear of looking stupid because ‘I couldn’t do it,but once I did I had the most amazing time and created the most beautiful butterfly which is now inspiring me in my office. I have not had so much fun for a long time just using the paint, glitter and gold leaf in whatever way felt right for me to express myself knowing that there would be no judgement from any of the lovely people on the course with me. The other people on the course were a delight and Christine was a wonderful presence for the group being there to support, encourage and help us through the day. She is an inspiration through her work and teaching.
What I loved about this workshop was the creative energy it generated – both
on the day and for some time afterwards.
It introduced me to an entirely new way of creating a painting – and I’ve not gone back to my old methods. The ideas gained from this workshop have also been invaluable for my work as a writer and helping students build ideas for stories and poems.
Christine doesn’t teach you to paint – she opens the door and allows the ideas inside you to come out. There are no mistakes – only unexpected surprises. Each workshop begins with a guided visualisation. During this journey I found my mind was flooded with colours and images. All I had to do when I reached my canvas was set down the ‘picture story’ I had been given.
I enjoyed the sensation of using my hands instead of a brush to put the paint on the canvas, taking me back to some very special childhood memories.
