"It's been about a week and I'm still reeling. I went in thinking I may reach some unknown destination but left knowing I want to keep traveling."

Sondra Primeaux | Co Host | Unruffled Podcast | Texas

Step in with vulnerability, emerge with courage.

You don’t need to be an artist, or even ‘arty’ for that matter. And RAW is definitely not about drawing straight lines. In fact there’s no drawing at all. (You are expected to be very good at scribbling though).

With your ‘painty hands’ you will gently and curiously, explore concepts such as surrender and control, self attendance and acceptance through intentional practice, creative inquiry and process.

You will laugh, you will maybe even cry but most of all, 
you will be intrigued and inspired by the depths of your own creativity.

RAW is not really about what happens on the page you see,
it's about how what happens on the page
can open you up to your self.

Your worries.
Your truths.
Your life.

It's about how accessing your deepest wellsprings of experience can give rise
to a wisdom that has the capacity to guide you towards new possibilities.

 It's about becoming your own best ally and agent of change in the narratives of your life.

So that you may live the stories you wish to tell. 

And that you may present yourself in the world, not as an apparition of who you think you should be,
but as you are, in the truest nature of your being.

Your creativity can serve you as an opening to a life of deeper meaning, wonder and renewal.
It can put you back in touch with your authentic self and gift you with the language to express it.

Through the RAW process, you will discover what it means to honour your own experience.

To have a voice.
To trust it.

  • Guide you through some WRITING exercises to tap into your most inner knowings which facilitate deep self connection and expression.
  • Teach you simple, spontaneous 'messy play' techniques in which the art makes itself.
  • Show you ways to build a 'stash' of RAW materials so you're always ready to dive in.
  • Invite you into a deeper understanding of creative practice & process, using inquiry, symbolism and metaphor as portals to deep self connection & expression.
  • Share her own process and insights on making art that is honest, open and RAW.
  • Help you let go & hold space for your own process and vulnerability.



  • Gently explore your inner landscape.
  • Discover what it means for you to show up for and as yourself.
  • Experience a creative recovering of your own truth, wisdom and insight.


We will begin and end each day by gathering in circle and checking in before moving over to work in our journals where Amanda will guide you through various exercises and concepts, demonstrating each technique before you take it to your own pages to explore and experiment for yourself. 

Please note: It is very important to arrive on time and stay until close of circle each day as this upholds the integrity of our shared process and energetic container. 

For workshops outside Ireland, you will be provided with a supply list upon booking. Amanda supplies materials for workshops within Ireland. 

Each participant will receive:

  • The Workshop
  • A downloadable pdf of follow up notes with links to many resources.
  • Bonus subscription to RAW energy: a 30 day visual journaling email course.
  • Continuing support and inspiration from like-hearted souls in our Closed Facebook Community, Pilgrims On Deck. 
  • Opportunity to purchase private selection of original art from Amanda (not sold online) + at a student rate.  
  • Tea, coffee & refreshments throughout. Lunch is not included.
