This course will inspire you to deeply process painful emotional states with self-love. I share my own art and experiences of learning to stay compassionately present to emotional pain, to encourage you on your journey to honest expression and emotional release.
Part 2 - Getting Real
"My favorite part of the course was your generous sharing & your collages - about what your collages meant to you, what you saw in them - sharing about your journey"
When we do not maintain a regular self-reflective practice we lose touch with the subtleties of our inner experience. Without daily contemplation time, it is easy to stop living your own life and allow outside influences to "live you."
In order to live full, authentic lives we must express all of our feelings, "positive" and "negative" alike, as they all hold important messages. This course will inspire you to look deeper into the outer "collage" of your life to understand what inner patterns of thought and emotion are creating your experiences.
"I feel like I am seeking for maps to reach dark scary places inside, and your courses are all helping me reach my destination (of healing) everyday. I have learned that I am not alone in my struggles, and there is hope to heal if I can face my emotions and bad memories instead of distracting myself with other things. I think your classes are magic. It amazed me how many of the classes correlated exactly with something I was dealing with in my own life!" ~ M.B.
This journal writing course will support you to...
- Let down your guard to see the emotions that you have been pushing down and hiding from yourself.
- Create your life from the inside instead of reacting to the outside.
- Overcome the emotionally repressive influences from your past.
- Find the expressive strength to live a unique life in authentic truth.
- Reconcile the conflicting voices in your head that want you to succeed, with the "younger" voices that want to hold you back.
Learn More about Morning Pages
Years ago when I woke up early to write my three "morning pages," from Julia Cameron's Artist's Way, I would often feel stumped about what to write when I was emotionally flooded.
I created this course with journal examples, stories, wisdom, guidance, questions, and spontaneous art to inspire your daily writing practice.
What are saying about this course:
"I've taken many workshops and I normally wouldn't reach out to someone and do this, but I feel such a strong need to let you know how much you're 30 Days of Authentic Self-Expression changed my life, whole-heartedly, in such a huge way. The workshop spoke to me on such a higher, deeper level than I ever expected. Sometimes it was so eye-, heart-, soul-opening that while reading the emails I would stare, in shock, with my hand cupped over my jaw-dropped mouth, tears streaming down my cheeks, at the realizations and truths I was discovering.
Feelings of pain, feelings of enlightenment, feelings of contentment rushed over me throughout the 30 days. I just feel so more open and alive and able to accept myself now, everyday learning how to stop holding onto the pain and trauma and depression of my past. In my life right now I'm facing some more major struggles, and if I wouldn't have taken your class, I can't imagine how I would be coping, but I am and it feels so incredibly good!
And the best part is I've created this journal/tool of self-expression that I will have forever, to look back on, to use and recreate in the future. I'm a true believer in that everything happens for a reason and this is one of the most significant examples of that that has ever happened to me. I really can't thank you enough for ALL that you do and provide." ~ K.S. California
