Michele Cassou Newsletter
April 2018

Dear Friends and Painters,

Big new announcements about teacher trainings and new San Rafael classes!

I am so happy to be bringing new ways for training teachers so they can find the depth of the creative potential while discovering pure intuitive painting: a pure creative process to transmit to their students.

Participants do not require a lot of preparations to start these programs. Programs are now very adaptable to people's life and they can go on at their own rhythm and for as long as they need to learn; they can take 2 days or 5 days of training at a time.

If the full understanding is not there students and teachers won't reach the possible depths and might sidetrack and mimic a painting process where the ultimate potential of creativity is ruined. Then student painters retreat in loops where they can stay for many years without being aware of it. These distorted teachings only offer entertainment, but wont reach the magical potential of creativity that explore the mysteries of life and enter the unknown. It is a great responsibility to guide painters in the true direction and inform them of the amazing potential and workings of creativity- generally unknown. (It can only be known after it has been experienced)

In this new kind of training participants discover a way to teach that won't get old because it is not a technique but a lively unending learning process for both students and teachers. There, the teachers allow the full expression of their feelings as they enter new dimensions of Being, expand their consciousness and spiritual awareness. A unique offering.

CICF will certify the Creativity teachers on an individual basis, depending on the time of completion (where they can guide the painters into pure intuitive process.) Our training includes many hours of practical teaching as well as personal painting that will let participants know when they are ready. This teaching can only be done in small groups. Maximum 11 people.

See below and see website for calendars.

Fondly, Michele
