Aviva Gold, 80, developed the method “Painting from the Source” after a serious personal crisis as a way to regain access to her own creative power. Today she encourages others to embark on what Joseph Campbell calls the “Hero’s Journey” in the process of transformation – painting a picture. This painting allows the painters a deep experience in the realm of the unconscious and makes them aware of the valuable power that lies in their wounds. In times of transition and change, painters explore their life dreams and review their life direction, trusting their creativity.
“Just looking around I could see that women needed to have more power. And that somehow I was going to behave as if I had power.”
