A Virtual Painting Retreat and Creative Wellness Immersion
February 15th – 19th, 2023
Are you ready to welcome unbridled creative freedom, a supportive community, and the whispers to play with paint in 2023?
You’re in the right place!
REUNITE is a five-day immersive retreat experience offered once a year, and this year I’m offering a sliding-scale price structure, an invitation to participate as a group for the price of one (Paint with your people…make it an event!), and access to everything through the end of 2023.
With just the right mix of gentle expert instruction, sixty + gorgeous videos filmed live in my Portland studio, supportive daily Zoom calls, one-on-one guidance, a global creative community, and the freedom to move at your own pace, you’ll experience my entire Brave Intuitive Painting process just as you would at an in-person retreat. Except here you can skip the hotels, rewind the videos, work at your own pace, and be in the comfort of your own home.
For years, I’ve dreamt of finding a way to share the magic and impact of my live painting retreats with more people in more places. I’m so happy to say: This is it.
Read testimonials from past REUNITERS here.
You’ll have immediate access to the Month of Creative Wellness and the private Community Space as soon as you sign up.
On February 13th, you will gain access to the Virtual Retreat classroom.
From February 15th – 19th, we will gather daily on Zoom for Community Calls and one-on-one support as we move through the pre-recorded retreat videos.
You will have access to everything until December 31st, 2023.
If you are unable to join us live, all replays of the Zoom calls will be posted in the online classroom.
Read more about what’s included in the virtual retreat below.
“Possibly the best art experience I’ve ever had.”
REUNITE includes access to sixty professionally shot, beautifully edited, pre-recorded videos. In the videos, you’ll see me guide an amazing group of people through one of my painting retreats, from start to finish.
From painting demonstrations to soulful conversations, dance breaks, and one-on-one conversations, these videos are intended to make you feel like you’re right in the room with us. You’ll get to see and hear it alllll.
Remember, these videos are pre-recorded, so you can watch them at any time and/or refer back to them later on for support.
I’ll be hosting eight live community calls, and bonus one-on-one sessions to offer feedback throughout the painting process.
You will have access to all the course material, including all the pre-recorded videos, the recorded Zoom sessions, and the creative wellness prompts until December 31st, 2023.
“A fantastic, freeing experience. I learned so much and will be forever changed by the exercises.”
No problem. You can still access all the course content until December 31st, 2023, and join our private Facebook Community anytime.
You are more than welcome to participate in the retreat on your own (your online community and I will be there to support you!). However, if you do have family members or a “pod” that wants to join you in your household, I wholeheartedly encourage you to (safely) come together and create a real-life, at-home retreat experience.
Please check out the pricing options for group registrations below.
REUNITE is perfect for first-time painters, seasoned artists looking for more freedom and expression in their work, and everyone in between. For years, I’ve taught wildly mixed groups in terms of experience level, and it always works out for everyone. So please, come as you are — and don’t be shy.
By the end of the virtual retreat, you will have experienced my entire painting process, from the very first marks to the final touches. You’ll have two large, colorful intuitive paintings, but more importantly, you will be set up for a lifetime of painting and creative expression.
*Remember, if you need to circle back and watch things again (or do the retreat all over again), you’ll have access to all the material until December 31st, 2023.

“The workshop brought me to a place of possibility & purpose. It renewed my passion to practice, to put in the effort, to love what I love & let go the rest!”
You’ll receive access to these unique and playful prompts as soon as you join the course. Think of them as a warm-up for the virtual retreat or as a bountiful buffet of creative care packages to unwrap and devour anytime before the end of the year. There are so many ways we can support our creativity through wellness practices, and I hope that many of these prompts will become lifelong practices.
Some examples of what you’ll find in the month of creative wellness:
The thirty days are thoughtfully designed to add a layer of depth, creativity, intentionality, and sweetness to your daily life without requiring fancy tools or a lot of extra time. In other words, it’s doable. It’s also totally optional and available to do anytime.
“An amazing experience where self care, self exploration, and creativity collide!”
“If you have ever felt like you want to paint but you don’t know where or how to start, this class, and especially Flora will introduce you to a technique that could change your life by teaching you a creative practice that will allow you to just begin.”
“A great wellness refresher and one of the best virtual art courses out there today.”
“Transformative, both on and off the canvas. I am a better person than I was before REUNITE.”
Are you ready to learn about a whole new way of creating that will allow you to create big, bold, intuitive paintings?
Are you ready to treat yourself to a thoughtfully designed, easy-to-navigate, soulful painting retreat from the comfort of your own home?
Are you ready to connect with a vibrant community of creative seekers from all over the world?
If so, I would be honored to have you join me for REUNITE.
As we grapple with the ever-changing landscape of what it means to be alive in this time, REUNITE is here to offer a loving and safe space to come home to all that matters most.
This offering took me years to create and the feedback I’ve received from past REUNITERS has been truly humbling.
The time to come together is now.
I hope to REUNITE with you soon.

Flora Bowley (pronounced bowl-lee) is an artist, author, and gentle guide whose soulful approach to the creative process has touched thousands of lives.
Blending over twenty years of professional painting experience with her background as a yoga instructor, community builder, and lifelong truth seeker, Flora’s intimate in-person workshops and popular online courses have empowered a global network of brave painters while creating a holistic movement in the intuitive art world.
Her first book, Brave Intuitive Painting, provides luminous documentation of this innovative approach, while Creative Revolution dives even deeper into the transformational potential inherent in this way of creating. Her new book, The Art of Aliveness, explores the vast ways in which the principles of creativity can serve as fuel for a more alive and awakened way of living in the world – no paintbrushes required.
Flora lives in Portland, OR, and her own vibrant collection of paintings can be found in galleries, shops, and printed on unique products around the world.
Flora is also joined by her collaborator, Lynzee Lynx, as an additional guide in REUNITE.
REUNITE is an online course and can be accessed anywhere in the world where high-speed internet is available.
The live retreat experience of REUNITE is happening from February 15th – 19th, 2023. All calls will be recorded, and REUNITE is available to experience at your own pace with access to everything through December 31st, 2023.
Below you will find the schedule of Zoom Calls. We understand that many of us live in different time zones, and replays of each call will be posted in the classroom and available to watch anytime.

More detailed login instructions will be sent to participants through email.
REUNITERS will have immediate access to all the course material upon registration. Access will remain open through December 31st, 2023.
A complete list of my favorite painting supplies and suggested materials will be sent to all REUNITERS prior to the virtual painting retreat. Our recorded Materials Zoom call will also cover materials and space prep in depth and detail.
For the month of creative wellness, you will just need a journal, your favorite tools to draw and write with, and some larger pieces of paper if you have them.
For the virtual painting retreat, you will need (at least) two large surfaces to paint on. I suggest 30” x 30,” but larger is even better (more space = more freedom). You can paint on canvas, heavy watercolor paper (a 300-lb. paper will work great), panels (such as pieces of masonite or other wood from the hardware store), old paintings, upcycled doors, or even cardboard. This whole process is about working with what you’ve got!
Acrylic paints come in many different brands, sizes, and prices, and I will share my favorites. However, I always recommend buying paint according to your budget so you can feel free to use it with wild abandon.
Please note that materials are not included in the cost of the course.
I encourage you to paint as big as you can — ideally on canvases at least 30″ x 30″. You will need enough space to either hang your canvases on the wall, put them on an easel, or place them on a table, while also stepping away for perspective from time to time.
The actual space itself can be anywhere — in your kitchen, bedroom, spare room, garden, garage, or even in the park. Just remember, this can be a messy process, so you’ll want to protect your walls and floors with drop cloths or plastic sheets.
I will share all my tips on setting up your home painting studio and answer your questions about this in our first Zoom call.
Upon registration, you will receive an invitation to join a private, global REUNITE Community Facebook group. This is a great space to meet and interact with your fellow REUNITERS and share images of your paintings. The REUNITE Facebook group will remain open indefinitely.
Yes! You will have the opportunity to ask me direct questions during our Zoom calls and during our bonus one-on-one sessions.
For any technical or logistic questions, Tina (aka Teamlove) is available Monday – Thursday through email ([email protected]) or the Facebook group (tag Tina Marina).
Yes! This class is for anyone who wants to loosen up, become more confident, and explore their creativity in a new, intuitive way.
REUNITE is perfect for first-time painters, seasoned artists looking for more freedom and expression in their work, and everyone in-between.
For years, I have taught to wildly mixed groups in terms of experience levels, and it really works out for everyone. Please come as you are. All are welcome.
Yes! Even if you have been painting for years, this class will offer a fresh approach, new techniques, and a unique way of looking at painting from a place of intuition, freedom, and joy.
This course is for you if …
The most striking difference is that REUNITE is presented in a retreat format and it also offers my most current teachings.
While the basic approach to the Brave Intuitive Painting process is similar in both courses, the REUNITE virtual retreat includes sixty original videos that document a live workshop with a group of people, including one-on-one sessions with students as they move through some common challenges. The virtual retreat includes some of the same techniques you’ll find in Bloom True, along with all my latest favorite ways to share this process.
REUNITE also includes eight live Zoom calls, bonus one-on-one feedback, the Month of Creative Wellness prompts, and a fresh community of REUNITERS.
If you’ve wanted to participate in an in-person workshop with me, REUNITE will give you that experience in a virtual setting.
Yes, all videos are shot in HD and are high quality, so you will need a fairly high-speed Internet connection to view them. The videos are a vital part of the content of this course, so please do consider this. We are not able to provide alternative viewing options for people on dial-up or on very slow connections. Therefore, please bear this in mind when registering. If you have regular broadband, you should be fine.
If you’re having trouble viewing a video in the course or anywhere else on the site:
If problems persist, please send us an email at: [email protected], and we’ll get back to you asap.
Yes, the more the merrier. REUNITE is based on a retreat format, so if you have a group to “retreat” with, great! It is also absolutely fine to participate in REUNITE on your own — your online community will be there to support you.
How It Works
When one person registers for REUNITE, I invite you to share the experience with your immediate family, the people you live with, or your small “pod” of up to five people who plan to do the retreat together under the same roof. I kindly ask that you purchase another spot for every additional five people who plan to join you, or for each separate household.
Yes! What a great gift to give. Please write to us at [email protected] to inquire about REUNITE Gift Certificates.
If REUNITE does not meet your expectations, we are happy to give you a full refund within one week of your purchase. After that, there are no refunds or extensions for this course. Thank you for understanding.
