Thank you Mary with the great insight of your workshop and the integrative painting that shed light in my past to improve the ability to work on myself and improve for a better tomorrow !
"Marie created a unique private session for my niece. It was a togetherness event that we will cherish forever- as she is graduating from college and moving to another state. We did breathe work, we had different music. She served 5 Star little nibbles of food. We got to be free spirits. We learned about colors. We interpreted what the painting was bringing forth from our soul. We learned from each other’s’ paintings too! It was a creative, fun, event that I was blessed to share with my niece. Thank you Marie!
1/20/18 This was my second workshop with Marie and it was even BETTER than the first! I have never had any art classes but the way Marie guides you into your creative space with relaxation and meditation exercises seems to work like magic. When it came to actually painting it seemed that blending just the right colors came so effortlessly and the images flowed so smoothly off the brush that I felt not one bit intimidated with the process. I was relaxed and felt so confident. When everyone had finished their respective works she guided us through an open discussion of each of the paintings focusing not only on the symbolism of the colors used but the symbolic images created by each of the artists in their work. I highly recommend her workshop to anyone with an open and spiritual mind who wishes to explore his or her creative self. Well done, Marie!!!

This is to thank you for an amazing day spent at the Intuitive Workshop you held at Chris David’s Salon EscapE In Delray Beach.
From the opening meditation to the discussions at the end about each of our paintings, the day was filled with deep insights, warmth, fun and love.
Truthfully, when I put down my paintbrush and looked at my painting, the first thought that came to mind was “I need art lessons”. However, after we started to explore the meanings of the colors, objects, placement of both as well as other aspects of the painting a completely different picture sat before me. It has been a few weeks and I am still examining this picture to find other hidden treasures.
This is a workshop for the experienced and inexperienced artist and spiritually curious alike. It was an unexpected, soul talking experience and I look forward to the next workshop.
You are an amazing artist, a gifted teacher and a beautiful soul.
Thank you so much for your patience and for sharing your gift.
This was a truly overwhelming experience and a quality time well spent.
This is the start of a new journey for me! It was overwhelming to hear how truthful and accurate it was.
I was totally into it.
Mind boggling! Truthful!
“My individual session was spectacular. Really, a reading combined with meditation and art exercise. The way Marie Donze deconstructed the meaning of the painting was so extraordinary and meaningful. A year of good therapy insights in one afternoon!!"
The moment I met Marie, I felt a nudge in my heart to take her workshop. What came of it was an incredible painting I never even knew I could make, filled with so much truth about how I feel, but couldn't express through words. Through her graceful attention to detail, gentle kindness and unconditional love, Marie has taught me how to express myself freely and without judgement. I feel as though I walked away with a sacred gift of knowledge about myself, a beautiful sense of serenity for where I am now, and encouragement for where I am going. My painting is called a portal to freedom and it's about letting go. I am so glad I met you, Marie! You are a vibrant, giving soul.
After meeting Marie Donze at an event and hearing about her program, we scheduled the painting workshop at my salon. The program was amazing and my clients loved the experience. I've been wanting to learn to pain for quite some time but the fear of not knowing stopped me. After the meditation and a little bit of extra support from Marie I created a painting that I am inspired by and very proud of. Everyone that attended felt the same way and I will definitely be hosting this Workshop again in the future! Thank you Marie
If you've always wanted to try and paint, or you're just looking for an experience that goes a little bit deeper, I highly recommend this Workshop. Take a journey through a guided meditation and create an inspired piece of art that's deeper in meaning than you could have ever imagined! Everyone loved this events and Marie is truly a gift.
I am blown away by my experience with Marie!! I went into it completely stressed from my work week and not thinking I would get anything out of it (last time I painted anything was Jr. High) but was equally interested to see what would happen. Marie has a very warm personality, makes you feel right at home (so I immediately felt at ease) and the small class size is perfect for connecting. The guided meditations were extremely relaxing and Marie was there to assist you during the entire creative process if you ever felt “stuck”. I’ve been working on my spiritual self but not sure how much I’ve actually “accomplished”-I am absolutely amazed at my final product and now have something tangible to look at everyday and remind myself how beautiful my spirit really is even though my mind sometimes “gets in the way”!! I am so glad I decided to visit, it was completely worth it, and will be returning in the future. I highly recommend going as Marie is very gifted and a blessing.
This was an eye opening experience that I recommend to anyone who who wants to get in touch with his or her inner artist. Marie is fantastic and leads the workshop with grace and joy. Even if - or especially if you have never painted, this is for you.
One of the most extraordinary artists I’ve ever met!
I did my first workshop with Marie yesterday and it was AMAZING. We started with a short questionnaire for later use, followed by guided meditation exercises and some fire-breathing to create a calm, focused, and intuitive base from which to begin. Despite not picking up a paintbrush since I was a kid, I just started making strokes across the canvas, not knowing what I was going to paint, nothing in my mind, just empty and instinctive. I kept painting, mixing colors, adding brush strokes, and the image began to take shape. I won't describe the rest of the session as that would be a spoiler! Suffice it to say I highly recommend Marie's workshop, especially if you are a left-brainer! It helps a lot to have a meditation practice already, but it's not necessary. I don't know a yogi or yogini alive that wouldn't just LOVE this!
I've never taken a single class on painting, illustrating, sketching, etc. and yet I felt completely comfortable in Marie's class! Her guided meditations were absolutely amazing! Marie has a gift for calming our overactive minds and helping us to just "reach and feel the force!" As we prepared to paint, I had no idea what I was going to create and how I was going to create it; however, I felt completely hopeful in Marie's guidance. It was a magical experience letting go of doubt, ego, and opening up, trusting my intuition to guide me, and so, everything flowed, from shapes, color mixing, and matching! This isn't just a class on opening your creativity in painting, it's more than that, it's about self-empowerment. With it all culminating in sharing your ideas and experience with those around you. The synchronicity between us all was spectacular. We quickly realized that the guided meditation had created a gentle and loving bond between us all and it reflected in the themes and colors of our art. The beauty of the Creative Forces within us and all around us!! I could go on for hours about Marie's masterful gifts! Thank you, Marie! I implore the reader to give Marie a few hours of your day and be inspired!!
Exactly what I needed to process my next level. The meditation exercises were easy to perform and cleared my mind and I was able to connect. The images that flowed into my head were clear and concise. By the time it came to painting I knew what to paint. It actually wasn’t about the painting at all but about the processing of everything. Marie was well prepared for the students and provided an excellent atmosphere. Highly recommended.
