Sensual Body-Painting Day

“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 are alive, 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 when it comes to painting a human being. 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 first sensitize 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.
