Ink on water is magical. Over and over again, people who do this workshop are mesmerized at what happens when you let go and get curious. You take home marbled paper, but the real power is in the process.

Etegami Afternoon

Come for an afternoon of etegami. An afternoon of calm, connection and community. I will guide you through a few basic rules, and provide some supplies for you to use. Most people who try it find themselves hooked. You absolutely do not need any previous art experience or talent to do this artform. 

Everyone is invited to bring something from nature - a leaf, a flower, a piece of fruit - to share as images to be painted. Donations will be graciously accepted (to cover cost of the supplies and the space) but in no way are expected.

Ink Drop Art: Parent + Child

Ink Drop Art: Parent + Child

One of the participants of the last Ink Drop Art night had this to say:

"I had more fun last night than I can remember having in a long time! Channeling my inner kid, letting go and embracing the flow...with ink drop art."

Bring out your inner kid and let it play with your actual kid. Find your state of flow, that place where the stress goes away, the worries disappear, and you are fully in the moment. Fully present with your child in a shared experience that will create a memory. 

We will use the ink drop art as our creative tool.  You don't need to have experience with ink drop art, or even know what it is! I will guide you through the process. No artistic skills or talents are required at all. I promise. It's all about the creating and the flow, not what artwork you end up taking home. 

I do request that each parent (or grandparent/aunt/uncle etc) bring only one child, as this could easily get very messy. One-to-one ratio is ideal. At least school age is most appropriate. The cost of the workshop is $35 for both you and your child combined.

Flower Mandala

I love this workshop! It's all about choosing one of the following: peace, strength, wholeness or balance. Once you know what you crave, you design a flower mandala with that in mind. What you put into the mandala is what you create for yourself. Since you're working with flower petals, no artistic abilities are needed! There's no judgment or comparisons. Just a room full of flowers and supportive souls.

Creativity as a Practice Series

In this four part series, we will explore quieting our minds and connecting to a deeper place inside ourselves through creativity. In the same way that meditation, yoga and mindfulness are practices, sinking into creating something can have that same calming, easing, connecting effect. 

NO ARTISTIC ABILITIES ARE REQUIRED! This isn't about producing artwork. It's about what happens during the process of creating. Each month we will experience a different artform as we support each other in our own personal creative practices. 

We will meet the following Thursday evenings from 6:30 - 8 pm:

          February 23, March 23, April 20 and May 18

Early bird pricing through the end of January!

February Intuitive Paint Night

Come find calm and clarity as you get lost in the flow of creating. Whether you have sludge you need to shift, or you just want to be surrounded by painting people, this is all about the process. We will meet briefly together as I provide some reflection for grounding and the loosest instructions. The majority of the evening will be spent at the easel. At the end we will rejoin and everyone will be given the option of sharing. This is only an OPTION. Absolutely no pressure. Please know too that the sharing is done as a silent witness. Everyone will listen, but nobody will comment. Your story gets to be your story alone. 

Absolutely no artistic abilities are required for this night! New participants are always welcome!

Creative Night Out

This One's For You!

It's a crazy time of the year. Take one night for YOU! One night to just have fun and create for no other reason than creating's sake. Quiet your mind. Let loose. Have fun. Be in a room filled with other people having absolutely no expectations of you. Be in a space where you are not making lists or shopping or planning or taking care of anyone or anything.

This will be a light evening. No digging deep. No listening to our inner wisdom. Just filling ourselves up with the power of creating. 

As with all of the experiences I offer, ABSOLUTELY NO ARTISTIC ABILITY IS NEEDED.

Not sure? Email me you questions. Theresa@suite101experiences.com.

Your Holidays, Your Way

Paint Your Holidays

The holidays do not have to be a time of stress. They do not have to be something we power through. If we take the time to truly decide what is important, as well as what is getting in the way, we can discover holidays filled with meaning, ease, and depth.

If this sounds like exactly what you need, come join us. We all know these changes won't just happen. The holidays will not magically be different unless we CREATE the difference.

We will use paint and creativity as a way to uncover what to let go of and what to find more of. This is not about painting a pretty picture - absolutely no creative talent is required! This is about using painting as a way to quiet our minds and uncover clues.

Experience Connection: Mother / Daughter Reflective Paint Night

Experience Connection: Mother / Daughter Reflective Paint Night

Sometimes the special bonds are the ones that we need to nurture the most. Whether you are the mother or whether you are the daughter, you will be welcomed into a safe space to strengthen this important connection. I am not putting any age limits around this workshop, so feel free to bring your daughter (even if she's young) OR your mother. 

We'll start by meeting together and getting our minds quiet. Time will be given for everyone to reflect and paint what it is they really want their mother or daughter to know. Afterwards everyone will be able to share what was painted. The option will be to share in front of the group, or go find a spot and share with each other in private. 

ABSOLUTELY NO ART SKILLS ARE NEEDED FOR THIS EXPERIENCE! It is not about painting a picture to hang on your wall. Not even on your fridge. It's about connecting, and art is simply a tool to make that happen.

Registration and price are for mother and daughter combined.

Experience Momentum: Shift Your Sludge Series

I am beyond excited to announce the first ever Shift Your Sludge SERIES! We will meet four times. You do not need to be a previous participant to sign up, but I do ask that you commit to the entire series. 

This series is about moving forward in your life. Getting out of the sludge and gaining momentum. Everyone will set an overall intention regarding their own personal sludge and what they want to shift. Each week we will get grounded and quiet, and each person will paint regarding their intention. There will be an option to share what insights people get while painting, but sharing is definitely not required. Art skills are definitely not required either.

After the optional sharing time, each person will commit to taking one or more action steps to shift their sludge. They will be compassionately held accountable for this commitment at the next gathering. Emails can be shared for those that would like to communicate in between. 

Dates of Series are September 29, October 27, December 1 and January 12.

Experience a Fresh Start: Intuitive Paint Night

The first day of fall! Time for renewal. Time for a FRESH START. Whether you need a fresh start regarding your health, your habits, your career, a personal relationship, or some other way, this is a fresh way to get a fresh start.

We will meet together for some grounding and direction. When you go to your easel you will be prepared to quiet all the noise in your head and let your inner wisdom come out to play. NO ART SKILLS NEEDED. You can paint like a preschooler - it doesn't matter. This isn't painting a picture for your wall. This is listening and learning the ways for you to step into a fresh start. 

A previous participant used the word "loose." This is loose. This is filled with ease. This is about releasing and listening. 

Cost is $35, all materials included, or bring a friend and both come for $50.

Replenish: Intuitive Paint Night

Replenish: Intuitive Paint Night

Replenish your spirit, your energy, your motivation. This is a space for you to release and replenish in a fresh and fun way. Remember being little (for some of us it was REALLY little) and the joy of opening up the crayons or pulling out some paint? This is the joy we're going to tap into. It doesn't matter if it's been 2 years, 20 years, 40 years or more since you allowed yourself to tap into that joy of creating. It absolutely doesn't matter if you're any good at it! Let's set aside words like "good" or "talent" or "artistic ability" and instead grab onto words like "delight" and "curiosity" and "self compassion." Oooh, I like those words. Those are the words we'll bring into the suite as we paint our way to replenishment. 

I realize that gives you zero information on what will actually take place. We'll meet together as a group. I will give you enough guidance that by the time you step to your canvas, you will be ready to dig into the paint. There will be time at the end to share for those that want to, but there will not be any pressure for those that would prefer not to. 

If you're feeling a nudge, sign up! Really, what have you got to lose. If you need a little more reassurance or details, hop over to my contact page and we'll connect. 

Here's what a previous participant of one of the intuitive paint nights said:

"There was a sacred space that was created and maintained. Such respect and a safe place to express without judgement."

Come join us. I'll do my best to create some sacred space. You bring your curiosity and self compassion. How can that not lead to a marvelous night?

Shift Your Sludge

We all have sludge in our lives. It can show up in our relationships, our careers, in big decisions we need to make, our finances, etc. While there are endless inroads for the sludge to appear, the result is the same. We get stuck. Worn down. Worn out.

We are offering you a fresh way to shift that sludge, and move gracefully and with ease into your power.

Here's what previous participants have said: “It may be painting but it's not about art. And it works LOL. The only requirement is willingness to shift.” “There was a sacred space that was created and maintained. Such respect and asafe place to express without judgment.”

This experience is for you if:

  • you are so ready to experience a shift

  • you are open to digging below the surface

  • you want release your fears and move forward in your life

  • you are ready to quiet your logical mind and to listen to your heart

  • you have no artistic abilities or experience (or you do)

In this Sludge Shifting Experience you will

  • get grounded and centered in a safe and supportive environment using tools such as guided imagery and essential oils

  • name the sludge so you can move forward

  • open a floodgate to creativity and new possibilities through guided reflective painting (remember - no art skills are required, we promise)

  • journal to reflect and create a concrete plan to get out of the sludge

Why? Because the shift between spring and summer can be jolting for a number of reasons. Because taking the time to be intentional can make all the difference.

But why? Flowers! Creating with flowers is magic. And not loaded with self imposed expectations.

Really, though, why? My sister is coming! I want to do this with her. And with YOU. There is just simply no way that it will be anything less than lovely.

New Year / New You in a NEW Way

It's human nature that we think about making changes when the new year arrives. It's also human nature that we TRY SO HARD and still end up giving up on those changes long before Spring arrives. This is no news to anyone.

What if instead of trying so hard, this year you tried making the changes that are tugging at you by releasing and letting go? Crazy idea maybe, but does reading that make you breathe a little easier? Did your shoulders loosen up a little at the thought?

I strongly believe that we need to be intentional, especially at times like the new year, about what we want our lives to look like and where we are headed. The changes that are pulling at us are valuable, and it's important to respond to that pull. At the same time, we are resistant to change. Forging head on with grit and determination often leads to weariness and disappointment. 

I am inviting you to take a bold step in service of making some changes this year by releasing and letting go. Join us for this 3-week series that explores painting as a way of quieting the mind, releasing stress, and allowing full expression of your true inner self. Absolutely no previous art experience or skill is required! Each week you will be guided through adding a layer of paint onto your canvas and contemplating the clues that show up regarding the intention you have set. While floating will not be a part of the series, definitely bring any thoughts that you have from previous floats to the canvas. You’ve never done a float? Definitely come anyway! Previous experience floating is also not a requirement. The only requirement is an open mind and willingness to experience painting and self expression in a new, relaxed, “floating” way. 

The series will take place on Tuesdays
January 12, 19, 26 from 10 - 11. Cost is $120 for 3-week series / Members: $99 (all materials included). Participants new to floating will receive one optional introductory float for $49. To register, please go here or call 608-279-1009.
