Step out of your life
When the busy mind and body slow down and a person allows themselves to sink into stillness, they are able to experience their own being-ness. ~Gary Goodhue
Discover new horizons
I find my paintings by working on them…it is through the making of the paintings that I have many discoveries which are different from ideas. ~Lawrence Carroll
Delight in creative alchemy
In art we find the materials of life simplified, rearranged and heightened. ~Leland Ryken
Spark your muse – your inner creativity – with words
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen. ~Leonardo da Vinci
Suzanne’s program was simply a delight for me. Having no art experience, I knew I would learn something but had no idea how much it would feed my soul!!!! Her contemplative way of teaching and “being” inspired me so much. It was a day to listen, learn, reflect, and I had so much fun. The “art” I created gave me a wonderful window into how I can be creative. I am signing up for the next one. ~Sandy G., Westminster
Here is a peek into the fun you will have coloring with oil pastels!
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. ~Pablo Picasso
Your day begins with an introduction to using oil pastels to express your heart-centered perspective. You will quickly discover there is a great deal of freedom and joy in non-verbal expression.
I was so nervous about letting myself go and beginning to draw. I never considered myself as much of an artist. I walked away with more confidence. I will not be so nervous to try something new next time. I had the best time! ~Jan C., Cheyenne
You will emerge from this experiential day:
- With a fresh outlook on your life situation inspired by the expression of your heart in your drawings
- Encouraged and supported by this spiritual creative community
- Inspired to add contemplative art to your spiritual toolbox
Suzanne made us all feel safe and free to explore. Participation for me meant diving into self-discovery and allowing anything to emerge as is. Thank you for providing the space for people to move more deeply within themselves through Life’s transitions…through PLAY! ~Kelly S., Boulder

Today was a well spent day of free spirited creative play that shifted my perspective. Suzanne’s program gave me a taste of “artist’s eye” on my walk. I have walked that trail hundreds of times, but today there was something distinctly different in my walk. I began to see not just green leaves and brown grasses and blue sky. I looked closely at the thistles and saw not just purple flowers, but intricate shades of fuchsia, pinky pink and magenta threads swirling into the center of the blossom. The sky had grey and white and pastel blues, stormy dark blue, clear sky and steel blue all at once. ~Laura L., Boulder
