Touching the Core

"I have meditated for over 30 years, but I found Aviva's workshop gave me direct experience of part of myself that was completely new. The process that Aviva facilitated enabled me to see something profound in myself but expressed in and through my painting - it was as if my act of painting was creating a mirror in which I could see myself as I never had before." 

"I am impressed by the fact that humans have been painting for at least 40,000 years - probably longer than they have been meditating - and I certainly feel that painting from the source is a very original human activity that allows a person to become aware of themselves in a truly fundamental manner, touching the core of what it means to be human".  - Mike Finch
