I have been trying to find the words to adequately express the most transformative experience I had last week with Paige. Paige is a complete light bringer, she is light and love, and creates the most sacred and safe place for healing. I was so honored to spend the day with Paige at her and Aaron’s amazing healing center. I consider my creativity to be a great source of healing and with Paige my creativity was unleashed in a way I didn’t think possible. I had never experienced an intentional creativity class before so I had no idea what an amazing prosses it would be. Imagine being in a space that feels like a warm hug, dancing with wild abandon, and feeling safe enough to put down your burdens and explore your creativity in a new and exciting way. Creating with intention instead of creating for the end product doesn’t seem like a big difference but I assure you it is. Until my time with Paige I really didn’t pay attention to the fact that each time I made art I was looking towards the end product instead of the amazing process I was experiencing. Paige guided us in multiple steps to focus on your intention for that moment. I didn’t realize it but I initially started off creating in the very linear way I do at home. I realized I wasn’t being present in the moment, old habits indeed die hard. I stuck with my intention to play and explore and I covered up my first creating and splashed paint with wild abandon. I wasn’t guided to the end product I was carefully tended to and guided to stay focused on the intention of this process. Letting go, putting down my stresses and being guided gently and safely through this process was life altering for me. The art work I created was so deeply personal to me and I was so connected to the process that words cannot adequately express what an amazing healer Paige is. From this transformative time with Paige I know that I will never approach my creativity looking for the end result. I will settle in, set my intentions and allow myself to freely explore and create for the amazing process not the end product. If you are ever lucky enough to work with Paige know that you will come out of that experience profoundly grateful, grounded and transformed.
The class was well organized and Paige explained the whole process very well. I was amazed at how I created such a beautiful painting! Her instructions were so clear!
Paige was well prepared. She had all her supplies, and things ready to go as we did our Red Thread ceremony and, the painting workshop. Paige added special touches to our time together by, giving us our own,” Special Paint Brushes ” made by her, burning sage, prepared food, meditations, and I felt so comfortable with Paige as she instructed us through the whole process. Paige did our workshop in California and I was so impressed on how she had all her supplies ready and had everything we needed to create our Inner Muse! She had to bring all these supplies with her from Boise!
Paige made our time together so nice. She is an amazing teacher who has so much passion for what she is doing. I felt very comfortable asking questions at any time. Paige has a very soft heart and shared some of her own personal experiences with us. This made me very comfortable in sharing my stories.
I would recommend this class to others! What a great experience! I had never painted nor had any desire to paint. Wow! I am now a painter and will do more:)
This class opened my heart, soul, and mind to create what ever I want and to love it. I learned that when I have a quiet mind, I can really be in touch with my creative mind. So, I named my painting, ” Quiet Mind”.
Every time I look at her, she is a reminder that I need a quiet mind to dig deep and be creative. I also learned about my Critic and how important a critic is and how to talk to my critic when she comes without being asked!
Doing more painting with Paige, would be an honor!
