I attended an intuitive art workshop held by the amazing Zohar. I spent quite a few hours together with her and was always amazed by her capacity to contain, and her tolerance and patience towards us, her students. Like a supportive angel, Zohar floated among us. Her charm provided an enfolding atmosphere of calm that helped everyone get into the totality of creative efforts. I come from the world of drawing, very precise drawing, so when I joined the workshop I wasn't sure I could abandon myself to artistic freedom. I splashed colours on the sheet very intensively, went crazy, fooled around with colour, and my body joined in the whole celebration. I didn't care "what the neighbours would say". At the end of every session I felt like after a sauna treatment - pure and refreshed. And so I want to give the gorgeous Zohar my warmest thanks for enabling that experience, which gave me an uncomplicated way of experiencing the emotions that welled up inside me - almost without self-criticism.
Zohar's intuitive art workshop was a totally creative experience. It's the perfect option for anyone who likes drawing, creating, experimenting with colours, materials and forms. When you factor in Zohar's never-ending energies and attentiveness, the intimate, warm atmosphere, and joining a small group of creating artists who gradually become friends - you've got an unforgettable experience. I remember my time at the workshop as something beautiful that I shared in. Thank you, Zohar.
Intuitive paintingRecommendationsCreative and inner Liberation Creative and inner Liberation I joined Zohar's workshop because I wanted to create from a freer place. I'm a professional hair and make-up artist, so colours are not foreign to me. But Zohar's workshop showed me a more creative, liberated place, and encouraged me to bring out new tones from myself. Zohar trained and guided us towards greater openness; each session was exciting, and I always felt creatively free, full of spiritual serenity. Sundays at the workshop were my time to chill-out from the world. If you haven't already tried intuitive art - do yourself a favour. I warmly recommend it.
Quality time with yourself, new excitement every week... Sensing and touching your inner self, bringing it out into the air... Really seeing yourself, and not in a mirror... Enjoying discoveries about yourself, self-expression only you can create, in an unusual, empowering experience... My weekly shot of energy!
I had an outstanding experience in Zohar's workshop. It was exactly what I needed when I looked for something to refresh and enrich my life - and that's what I found. Every week for two hours I let myself go with a huge palette of colours and free expression. Zohar is a supportive, attentive, charming teacher, and the other young women who joined the workshop were amazing. Zohar's workshop provided a liberated atmosphere that helped push out my creative side. I recommend it to anyone seeking a little escape from daily routine, who wants something cool, colourful, and never constraining.
Dearest Zohar! I wish there were more warm, wonderful facilitators like you! We heard about your intuitive art workshop at a hotel by the Dead Sea. The introduction was the paints and paper on a table in the lobby. After your first explanation, accompanied by music, we had to draw whatever came up in our heart and soul. My husband Jacob simply went with the flow. Though he'd never touched paints/brushes, he didn't want to leave them. I was shyer, and unsure how to do it... Back home, we decided to sign up for a workshop. Our aim was to go out together, and build our relationship through a shared experience. From the start I wasn't afraid to take up the brush and paint, but I wanted the results to be lovely, and other people's comments on my painting were important for me. Jacob just flowed, and everyone was amazed by the depth and creativity his paintings revealed. And to my surprise, I got lots of compliments too... During the workshop I felt that Jacob was really connected to his work and gaining confidence. Slowly my own fears disappeared and every time I overcame one barrier or another. For example I never dreamed I would paint with my hands, really touching the colours without gloves - and it happened! Another example: I chose quiet colours not the bold ones I usually prefer... I think that my view of things changed following the workshop, and felt a sort of completeness with my work. On sad days (and we all have a few), I learned to go with the flow and just paint, and it was truly liberating. After several meetings I told our daughter about what we're doing. She was amazed to hear about it; as a child she was very creative, so I shared some of your glorious tips with her. She enjoyed it so much! Every time I saw she was more relaxed, I put on music and she blossomed, wanted to paint more and more. Regrettably, as parents we don't have much spare time in the evenings for activities like this. Life has its constraints, there are younger children who need attention. So I think it's our duty to raise awareness to intuitive art among children, to shelter them from their daily pressures. Children don't always want to collaborate with a school counsellor or psychologist, and some kids can't handle certain difficulties. I think that intuitive art helps to access the child's soul, that's so fragile. You can reach them without pressure, let them proceed at their own pace. Only good things come from this sort of conversation through art. They can pour their soul out onto the paper, but without pressure or criticism, without having to explain themselves in words. Wherever I can, I tell people about your intuitive art workshop. And I think as many people as possible should know about it, so we can take care of ourselves and, most importantly - of our kids Hugs! Angela
What I loved about Zohar's lessons is the emotional containing created while the group crystallises, helped by soothing mood-matching music, helpful words that encourage your hand to flow across the paper, and the urge for freedom that takes shape, inspired by the creative atmosphere. And I loved the fun that's built into the class, the mediated inspiration - the moment that starts with creating a theme, followed by your intuitive choice.... It opens the door to interpretation, it's plugging into the emotional flow that comes as soon as you start mixing the colours.... I-n-t-u-i-t-i-o-n
I spent a year in Zohar's intuitive art workshop. Apart from the pleasure I got from the free atmosphere, the great people, cool music, and Zohar's fun way of teaching, I learned to put aside my fear of drawing, to bring out things ripening inside me and that found a place on the page. A warmly recommended experience!
We had an outstanding sensory and spiritual experience with Zohar at her intuitive art workshop - held in one of Israel's most beautiful sites, on the slopes of Masada. Zohar gave hours of pure pleasure to volunteers at the Ruach Nashit (Women's Spirit) NGO. It's important to note that Zohar taught the workshop voluntarily, in the spirit of genuine giving, for women victims of domestic violence. Through Zohar's workshop we received new sources of strength and creativity, and then ascended to Masada...and to new spiritual places. I believe that Zohar is a spiritual teacher, with an energetic charge that inspires her students. She uses her talents, understanding and sensitivity to grant each participant the ability to feel, touch and know in a new way the worlds hidden in their soul. With thanks, Machi Ne'eman, CEO
Zohar gives you a sense of home, warmth and openness. Taking part in her workshop is a pleasure. Her warm welcome draws you in with its positive energies. it's two hours of total fun that detaches you from the whole day. It's soul therapy, through a combination of art and music. And the art is created from a very deep inner voice, stemming from the heart, not the head.
Zohar's workshop was a great opportunity to chill out, relax, and listen to the fabulous music that she chooses carefully, and to simply revel in drawing and painting. No criticism, no obligations - just two hours of art, relaxing from the day's events... It was a totally calming, enjoyable time, with a special combination - hours of quality time in a light-hearted atmosphere, creative work that flowed, plus lots of acceptance and positive energies!
Enjoying, creating, and accepting - Three words summing up my experiences at Zohar's workshop. Over six months, I travelled a long distance to the workshop, where I expressed what I'd gone through. It was a time of change for me, and I processed the changes during the workshop. People often criticise what others say and do, even more so when it concerns the field of art. At the workshop I had options to play around with colours, to dance with them, express myself without thinking or judging too much. On the contrary, at the end people even said my paintings are like Picasso's. A unique atmosphere, terrific music, the relationships that participants formed, and Zohar's infectious enthusiasm... all created an enjoyable and satisfying experience. And now I have an artist's easel and every so often I go wild with a brush... I highly recommend the workshops to anyone seeking to take time out and bring their hidden artist into the light. Thanks for everything!
