Sensual Body-Painting Day

The magical art of transformation… transformation through art.

“Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.” – Elizabeth Gilbert, ‘Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear’

Creativity is one of the most effective ways to access wonder, and in the Sensual Body-Painting Day we do this with paints and bare skin. If you exist, you are creative – this workshop is for everyone, no matter how “artistic” you may feel.

The body is like a natural, organic canvas and there are endless possibilities and inspirations when it comes to painting the landscape of the human form. All it requires is a little playfulness, and the courage to bring forth the treasures that are within you.

Painting others and being painted over the whole body inspires a shared, creative body journey. Free, sensual experimentation with different colours and shapes, out of the moment, allows unique body adornments to emerge. Each painting tells a story in a powerful way.

First, as a group, we invite movement and embodiment exercises to arrive relaxed and present in our bodies. We then begin the painting exploration and allow ourselves to be enveloped in a colorful coat of creative expression.

We start by sensitising the skin – our largest sensory organ – through sensual touch. Then we paint with brushes, sponges, fingers – the choice is yours. Each colourful and unpredictable brushstroke evokes different feelings on the skin, wrapped up in the curiosity of the final result of our bodies as canvas.

We paint each other with high-quality body paints. The skin-friendly body paints are smudge-proof and can be washed off easily with soap. You can be as clothed or unclothed as feels comfortable. Come solo, partnered, tripled – all constellations welcome.

See you soon…for the pure fun of it!

What is the TUITION in the GIFT about?

The facilitation/tuition is NOT INCLUDED in the ticket price. You will be invited to value your experience and Gift from a place of heartfelt trust on completion of your workshop experience.

The ticket price covers the necessary expenses to make the workshop happen: venue rental, materials, and our expenses. There is no set price tag for the tuition of this workshop. We are not the ones to determine that. Rather, you as a participant will decide for yourself what tuition amount feels right, clear and fair, reflecting your financial condition as well as your feeling of value and gratitude. We are applying a basic principle of The Gift — one does not specify what the gift shall be.

You may choose to pay what you feel a workshop of this level of quality costs, or you may choose more, less, or even zero. We cannot really put a number value on it. That is not because we don’t think it is valuable. It is because we don’t know what the value will be, especially given the wide diversity of financial means out there.

Therefore, we offer the tuition of our workshops as a Gift, trusting the generosity of participants to support us in developing and sustaining in-depth learning journeys like this one. We trust your judgement about what represents a commitment on your part and respects your financial situation.

Please feel free to ask us questions!
