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
Zainab is a process painter and a certified facilitator for process oriented learning. She started her career as a communication designer and is an alumni of the the Indus Valley School of Art & Architecture. She describes this way of painting as more of an unfolding where being an artist is essentially to be in touch with our own humanness than to be ‘skilled’ or ‘creative’. This act of painting is a way of energetically making a connection with our body and our impulses through which a visual language of colour & imagery is accessed; an internal practice where self awareness presides over creating works of art for display. As we explore our inner creative, it is seen that a deeper thread connects us all with one universal language of the source that is devoid of credentials, profession or skill.
