To give the time and attention to our own unfolding, comepaint process art retreats span over a number of days. The sessions are carried out at locations where we can be closest to nature and can find a greater depth towards self reflection.
The goal of process painting is being authentic in the creative journey itself. Remaining unconcerned with the limitations of talent, skill and accomplishment, we explore our innate spontaneity, practice deeper listening, surrendering to what calls us in terms of color, shape or form. We use painting as a tool to embrace the evolving and changing strangeness, the light and dark without interpretation or judgment. For many, process painting is a creative outlet where complex inner environment, unconscious conditionings, and the collective universal consciousness finds way.
You can participate in comepaint sessions regardless of your skill or profession. There is no prior art experience required.
Sound meditation is a part of comepaint retreats. The pure sonic sound from the singing bowls aid in acquiring relaxed and meditative states that calm the nervous system. Zainab is a certified sound therapy practitioner and works with handmade and hand beaten bowls. According to ancient tradition and experiential learning, sound frequencies from these bowls made of seven metals aid in healing ailments such as PTSD, muscular pain, anxiety, migraines and more.
Creative exploration through process painting combined with the soulful sound vibrations give way to a journey that goes deep into the core of self compassion and self-care.
about The Facilitator
Comepaint process art sessions are facilitated by Zainab Zoeb. Along the journey of 10 years, while working as a communication designer she discovered process art. This approach towards the creative realm proved to be nothing short of transformative as it unveils the depth of our connection to the stream of imagery which is available to anyone who is willing to receive. Furthermore, this process of unfolding the intricate layers of self and the collective consciousness has a greater meaning for those who are curious to transcend conscious conditionings through a meditative state of flow.
She completed her facilitation certification with The Institute of Art & Living, Canada (The Painting Experience) based on the work and teachings of Stewart Cubley & Michele Cassou. She deepens her practice under the mentorship & transformative guidance of Stewart Cubley who experientially discovered this method in the 70s and has been teaching it for over 40 years.
Previously a design graduate from the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, the evolution of her practice has been a journey inwards with the realisation that a deeper thread connects us all with one universal language of the source that is devoid of credentials, profession or skill.
