Embodying Spiritual Discovery Through Yoga, Brush, and ColorBook - 2007
Discover the creativity that lies hidden within you—and express it!
"Painting—because it is such a flexible and adaptable form of art—gives us unparalleled freedom to express what we are feeling. Through colors, forms, lines, even fabrics, we can tap into our deepest emotions and thoughts; we can access our very source. Given this opportunity, we unburden our spirits and are freed to express ourselves."
