Paint 4 Self

Fiona Neal

Fiona Neal is a West Kelowna artist working primarily in acrylics on canvas.
Studying at Bourneville College of Art, and specializing in painting at Sheffield Hallam University, Fiona was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts with First Class Honours.
After immigrating to Canada from the UK in 2003 and having her family, Fiona is spending more and more time painting from her home studio and facilitating workshops around BC. Her work has been sold to collectors over 3 continents and her workshops are in high demand. An award winning Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Fiona is a passionate educator, keen to share the many benefits of intuitive painting with others.

Unlike other creative activities, in Intuitive Painting the focus is on the process, not the end result. True creativity without criticism competition and comparison, is a rewarding and meditative practice, highly beneficial to health and well-being, welcoming and inclusive to all.

Learning to paint in a way that truly connects with the self in the moment can:
Energize your creative practice,
Develop non verbal expression,
Encourage deeper individual focus,
Discharge tension,
Promote a positive sense of self.

Through discussion, demonstration and practice you will be introduced to this unique way of expressing creatively. By providing tips and techniques to encourage experimentation and challenge self-criticism, Fiona will guide you through this rewarding expressive painting experience.

Summer Solstice Celebration with the Three Heart Drummers

Three Heart Drummers

The Three Heart Drummers; Therese Dorer, Marilyn Puff, and Suniva Bronson will be guiding you through a journey of song and chant. They’ll be singing, drumming and chanting their own songs, songs of the land, the elements, the sacred, and the playful. We welcome you into the Sacred and invite you to take some time for reflection and an opportunity to be bathed in healing songs.

The afternoon will include singing, drumming and a guided meditation with Marilyn Puff to welcome in the Summer Solstice, and as well Therese Dorer will bring forth channelled messages from Spirit.
Have fun and join in the chorus or with the songs you know, and share in the day’s celebration of the Summer Solstice!
What to bring: Bring your folding chairs, blankets, yoga mats, pillows, water bottles and get comfortable!
