The Painting Experience with Stewart Cubley

The Painting Experience with Stewart Cubley

Presented by The Painting Experience at First Presbyterian Church in San Rafael

Process painting sets forces in motion that facilitate personal transformation—catalyzing and accelerating each person’s unique path of growth and individuation.

The practice of painting for process—which is intuitive action without a goal—facilitates greater alignment with authentic presence, grace and radical trust in the world.

Through practicing process painting, you may develop:

In this nonverbal practice you’re given opportunities to experience creativity directly, beyond the mind. Process painting is compatible with other practices, such as meditation or therapy, but distinct in its approach.

Process painting is available to all, regardless of talent, technique or training. The experience is often joyful—but it is not always easy. It’s an adventure of many mysteries, each one a potential doorway to further deepening. Often, a moment of creative struggle opens the way to a powerful breakthrough.

“Travelers, there is no path. The path is made by walking.”
~ Antonio Machado

"Through The Painting Experience I’ve been freed from concepts of inadequacy, from limiting opinions of what’s beautiful, from censoring emotions and desires. At one point I bolted from the workshop to finish writing a chapter that had been giving me much difficulty and was suddenly revealed as my brush stroked the paper."
~ Natalie Goldberg, author & teacher
