Born 1962, Budapest, Hungary
Lives and works San Rafael, California

Growing up under a political system where reality was hidden, Maria Nikl developed an extra sensory ability to see the truth for herself very early. Her overall inspiration and vision is drawn from this inner source consistently till present day.

After obtaining an excellent academic foundation at the Hungarian Fine Arts Academy, in 1986 she immigrated to the USA, where she gained entrance to the San Francisco Art Institute in California. Her talent was recognized immediately, earning her the Merit Scholarship in 1989 and the First Prize at the Spring Show in 1990. She received her BFA in 1992, and her MFA in 1995.
Such masters as Sam Tchakalian, Franklin Williams, and Fred Martin, as well as her Japanese husband greatly influenced her work.

She further transcended cultural boundaries while living in Australia and Peru—her work was represented at the Adela Vega Escuela Particular del Artes, in Lima, Peru, and within the United States at the New Jersey Center for the Arts, Summit, New Jersey, --where she won the Honorary Mention Prize, --as well as at the SOMAR Gallery, San Francisco, California, at the Marin Society of Artists’ Gallery, Ross, California, at the Frank-Bette Art Center, Alameda, California. She is currently exhibiting her work at the Artisans Art Gallery, San Rafael, California, and at The Sloan Law Offices, San Francisco, California.

Working primarily with dynamic abstract imagery in acrylic, collage and resin on wood panels and tarpaper, Maria introduced alternative methods of printing and painting, such as plastic wraps and newspaper relieves. In her paintings she challenges false securities; the prefabricated and controlled--demonstrating the organic, dangerous world of imagination and integrity.

Creative process is a lot like living life itself—it involves experiments and risk taking—you have to be willing to perceive and experience new things, in order to have a full and satisfying life. Full in a sense that you are a cause, you have total freedom, especially in your creativity, where you are able to transcend the already existing realms.
This, like any other change can be difficult to experience. The process requires a lot of certainty; a safe and grounded space that is held up, even if the individual temporarily tumbles. This holding and setting the space that can accommodate change is what a large part of my function is as a counselor and teacher. The other is to stimulate your already existing, innate information and vision, and help you bring it forth with the aid of my curriculum. My methods are designed to evoke and cause experiences that you can call your own, and use in the future for your purposes if so you choose.

Teacher in Using Female Creative Energy

Category: Motivation / Inspiration
Description
YOU CAN CREATE WHATEVER YOU WANT!

Female Wellness and Power

This Meditative Workshop Series is on Female Energy, its anatomy, tools and techniques of its navigation at will. The goal is to free our Female Energy, Emotions, and experience them in wellness, certainty and joy.

Female Power, Female Creative Energy, what do these mean?

Women generate all the brands of energies men do, but they also produce one special type, which men lack entirely. With this energy a woman is able to create, and give birth to a brand new body, contain and nurture it.

This however doesn’t mean at all, that female power is limited to this sole function, contrary to the old beliefs.
The true reason for women being symbolized by the chalice is that women best contain their OWN Spirit. This complete fulfillment is what the female body is most suitable for. It is the potential of perfect synthesis for Spirit and Body, Essence and Form.
Depending on what a certain woman is working on, and what goals she’s working towards, she can use her own Female Energy for (self) healing, creating, and ruling her own universe.

The cultural programming of the female role does not always accommodate this potential to manifest, however.
This workshop series reveals the effects of society’s judgments, religious and cultural dogmas, and deprograms these—including possible experiences from past lives and genetic inheritances that are of no advantage to us any more.

In the initial phase you’ll experience where the female energy channels are located in relation to the body. Where is Female Energy produced, and which way does it run? How to anchor the Spirit into the Body and release foreign emotions that women have a tendency to pick up from their environment?

Later you’ll learn how to navigate our Female Power and Creative Energy consciously, and at will, how to use them for self healing, creating, reaching goals at ease, and rule in your own universe. Do all this without having
