Water Spirit

SEPTEMBER 3rd - October 15th

A unique opportunity to paint in a circle with women from all around the world, with the guidance of Michal and her loving team.

We are drawn to water for sustenance. For renewal and refreshment. But did you know that water also invokes our creative spirit?
I am sure you have experienced how great ideas flow to your mind when bathing or in the shower.

She Is The Water Keeper

7 WEEK E-COURSE

This course is a 7 week live experience plus recorded videos with Michal and women from around the world. We will receive inspiration from the water and explore the ways that it activates our creativity.

Meet The Water Sprites

It has been an honor and joy creating a part of this course with my closest circle of powerful women. I invited them to join me in a joyous exploration in the water, and together we swam, painted, sang, laughed, and experimented with new and interesting methods. I am deeply grateful to these women for sharing so much of themselves with me and each other.
This course really feels like a part of me, and I am so excited to share it with you.

    “This was the best online course I have taken. Their is something so special about Michal’s way of teaching. She is like a little sprite. I learned so much from her and I have been painting for many years. Michal is so attentive and always there for her students. The subject matter of water was just so compelling. It opened up a whole new way of seeing the blessed waters. Mni Wiconi! Water is Life! I cannot recommend this course any more highly. The exercises bring you into deep, close, spiritual relationship, not only with the water but with Michal and all the other participants. I also loved the safe container that was/is the FB group. This is a must take course!”

    “The inspiration and learning I received from Michal's guidance, tips and encouragement in this Water Spirit course, is worth gold! I especially loved that she showed us, exploring as I would as a novice, the ups and downs of painting, and to trust that little mistakes may end up as treasures. Michal held a precious, safe container for all of us to share our emotions, struggles and achievements. Thank you Michal for your authentic and beautiful self.”

    “I am still diving deep with this wonderful course. Like the Mother Earth course I know Water Spirit will stay with me. I have found a deeper connection with the waters that surround me here through painting with her and was invited to some very loving peaceful spaces guided by Michal and the circle. It was a joy to experiment with some new techniques and easy to follow the numerous delightful videos, I always feel so relaxed watching and listening to Michal paint, I would enter this workshop just to have access to this! I would also say that this course is designed with every level of artist in mind from the beginner to the most experienced, I have been painting for just 3 years and have never found these courses to be overwhelming, it is also great that you have a lifetime access so no pressure to 'finish'. Thank you Michal for another generous, beautiful, peaceful and loving course.”

    “I signed up for this class because I was so drawn to the title and the images of Michal lying in the Sea of Galilee. I wanted to experience the serenity she embodied. After completing the painting of my naked self immersed in water, I had an epiphany. I was finally embracing and releasing the trauma I experienced 16 years ago while undergoing breast and colon cancer surgeries and treatments. Thank you, Michal, for offering the opportunity to express my long-suppressed feeling onto the canvas.”

    “This is the third course I've taken with Michal and each one has been a beautiful, multi-layered and gentle journey into Self. The Soul-Sister aspect of the course is important to me, but there are many great techniques I've learned too. 'Water Spirit' has been a deep dive into the emotions and I've enjoyed how this has translated into paint, just I working at my own pace.The private Facebook community of women across the world is supportive and encouraging and I've learned so much from them all. Michal shares her experiences and knowledge in an authentic, personal way that is very different to other courses. I highly recommend anyone to pick up your paintbrush and join her creative community of sisters!”

    “I really loved this course! I have found a love for painting water and an appreciation of how complex it is but how relaxing and fun it is to paint. I loved learning more textures and the photography part was liberating and it made me feel like a Goddess and I love the special painting I created from it - I didn’t imagine I could look as beautiful especially when I just turned 60! Michal is such a beautiful and spiritual soul and a wonderful teacher this is the fourth course I have done with her and I feel so blessed to know her and the beautiful community of sisters I have become a part of. If u feel drawn to this course do your self a favour and dive straight in because the water is divine ❤️”

    “She lives near the velvet waters of the Sea of Galilee, she herself is a Water Goddess. Michal Shimoni offers a journey into the waters of the earth and of the soul. Learning to paint water is made easier when you have relationship to it. This class was a deep dive for me, into my inner waters, where water spirits offered their life affirming messages and the feeling of always being embraced by the waters of life and the Water Goddess herself. And, I learned how to be comfortable painting water! Michal is a wonderfully generous teacher of spirit connection and of painting. This was an unforgettable course I will reference again and again. Thank you so much Michal! ”
