A Virtual Painting Retreat and Creative Wellness Immersion
A Virtual Painting Retreat and Creative Wellness Immersion
Are you ready to welcome unbridled creative freedom, a supportive community, and the whispers to play with paint?
You’re in the right place!
REUNITE offers an immersive retreat experience you can do from the comfort of your own home. Beginning in January 2024 REUNITE will be available for the very first time with lifetime access.
With just the right mix of gentle expert instruction, sixty gorgeous videos filmed live in my Portland studio, 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, and wear your jammies!
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, and this is it.

“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.
You’ll also receive access to eight community call replays and bonus one-on-one sessions from past REUNITE courses.
As a bonus, you’ll also receive access to thirty days of unique and holistic creative prompts, including movement videos, playful drawing prompts, music playlists, recipes, and so much more. See examples below.
You will have *lifetime access to all the course material.
*Lifetime access means you will have access to the course as long as Flora Bowley Designs Inc. is providing admin support and maintaining this website.
“A fantastic, freeing experience. I learned so much and will be forever changed by the exercises.”
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.

“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.
Thank you for your interest in REUNITE!
Registration for REUNITE with lifetime access will open in January 2024.

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.
REUNITE with lifetime access is now available to purchase anytime. You will receive immediate access.
REUNITERS will access the course material by logging into the classroom through the Log In Area at the top of my website. (To log in, you’ll need the username and password generated when you purchase the course). Once you’re logged in, you can access the course by clicking your name at the top of the site. If you wish to change your password at any time, please click the ‘Forgot your password’ link.
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! 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 with a group of participants, 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 replays of community Zoom calls and the Month of Creative Wellness prompts.
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.
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 a small group of five or fewer 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 team[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.
