The Painted Journey


Torino 8-9th of July 2017


Despite setbacks, hardships, pain, and suffering, we can choose to live a Life full of power and purpose. By deepening our awareness of and connection to the Spirits inside and outside of us, we can develop relationships with the world based on courage, inspiration, and strength.


This is a weekend course that uses painting to meet and communicate with your Spirits.


On this workshop we will journey to the spiritual realm and paint our visions as we go. This is an active process that gives us a privileged perspective, “a foot in both worlds”, so to speak.


You do not need any artistic skills or previous knowledge about painting to participate on this course. It is not necessary to have prior experience with shamanism or spiritual work. This is an introductory level workshop. All you need is an open mind.


The course will be taught in English with Italian translation. The venue, Castelvecchio di Testona, is an ex-monastary dating from the early 1000s located in the countryside 5km beyond the Turin city limits. There is a nearby B&B for out-of-town participants (ca. €60 / night).


The Painted Journey is taught by Anna-Carin Mårtensson and organized by Delfina Testa and Robert Behrens.


The cost of the workshop is €200 euros. Painting materials and meals (vegetarian) are included in the cost.


Alcohol and drugs are not allowed on this course.
