"It takes courage to endure the sharp pains of self discovery, rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives."  --Marianne Williamson

Awaken Your Creativity

This program is for women who want to awaken their creativity and using that creativity to get inspired about life. Without our creativity, we are incomplete. We lack the wholeness that will enable us to reach out for true joy. One of the great blessings of the creative process is that we gain access to who we really are. Receive all the modules and work at your own pace!
Awaken Your Creativity

Take the Journey Inward

There is a silent language within all of us that reveals the truth of our thoughts, feelings, and emotions far more fluently than words. That language is imagery. Art journaling uses one’s inner vision to imagine what a thought, feeling, or emotional reaction would look like if it were expressed as a color, shape, or image. Explaining in words how you feel when you lose a loved one or when you fall in love is for most of us an impossible task. Words simply can’t describe such an experience. But images can – and with a depth that words cannot achieve. Art Journaling is a gentle, safe and private space. Only you know what your images mean. You go at the pace that feels right for you allowing your intuition to speak.

7-Step Journey Process

A Gentle Pacing

Our 7-step Inner Journey Process connects you to inner vision and intuition. You will be guided through each step of our framework from an inner vision, to responding with art materials, to making meaning. You will practice with art journal techniques as you play in your journal to create backgrounds and add layers with stencils, stamps, words and collage. As you work with journal prompts - colors, symbols and images emerge. You will experience transformation of your emotions, beliefs, self-identify, and possibly, even a new relationship to the Sacred within you.

FAQ

  • How do I know if this program is for me?

    This course is for you if … • You want to awaken your creativity. • You want to express an inner vision. • You have a part of yourself that wants to be fully expressed. • You are ready to see how the past is living in your present. • You sense that there is more than your external circumstances that are holding you back. • You want to release your voice and stop conflating, shrinking, or withdrawing. • You want to feel joyful and fully alive. • You ready to release your emotional armoring and allow your true self to show. • You have a yearning to connect with your deeper feminine nature. In Art Journaling, we're not creating finished pieces of art. The pieces are for you. This course is NOT for you if you are looking for a course on specific painting techniques or guidance around creating finished pieces of art.

  • Is this really for beginners?

    Yes! A supplies list and suggestions for how to set up your space will be in the first module. Terri will guide you through each step of the process. If you get stuck, just pop into the Facebook group to ask questions.

  • How much time will I need?

    How much time you spend is really up to you. Many participants tell me that once they experience this process they can't wait to come back to their journal. You can work at your own pace. You may find some art journeys come quickly while others are a bit slower. There's no need to rush. You have lifetime access to all the materials.

  • What is your refund policy?

    If the course 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.

  • Is this art therapy?

    This program is NOT art therapy. This program is designed to help you find some artful strategies to know yourself better and play with the many layers of your deeper Self. Although it can be therapeutic, the program is not therapy and does not replace work you would do with a therapist. Those in crisis, who are victims of child abuse, have unhealed trauma, or are struggling with addictions would do best to seek professional help first. If you’re not sure if you’re ready for this program and are already working with a therapist, ask your therapist about joining this program.
