Courageous You speaks to the human experience of courage and the ability to see reality from different perspectives. Courage is the ability to do something that frightens you; bravery. This workshop is an invitation to get out of your comfort zone. It’s about having the courage to inform yourself. And courage is contagious.
Discover, amongst other things, how to use the creative process through Visual Journalling to let go of the need for certainty – get your brave on. Art is one of the best ways to get our hearts around the teachings that often get stuck in our heads. Creativity helps move things from the “heady space” of knowing to the “heart work” of practising.
Live with less thorn and more rose
Keeping a Visual Journal has been the singular most transformative practice I’ve ever undertaken. Where journalling used to keep me in this crazy circle of whining about what was wrong but never actually DOING anything about it, art journalling, especially the deep, honest, self-inquiring kind that I am doing, has allowed me not only to know what is really going on with me, but also to TRANSFORM it – to live with less thorn and more rose.
Transform your life
Visual journalling can increase your presence in your own life, it can take you from the periphery where you are on the outside looking in, and put you smack dab in the middle of your life. It enables you to take a long look at the things that are going on in it, to decipher your own stuff, to transform it and to memory keep in a way that really honours your life.
Meet yourself on the page daily
Keeping a disciplined creative practice of visual journalling has many benefits.
- Having a practice means you are always engaged in your life instead of just letting it happen to you.
- Having a practice means finding a way to deal with anxiety instead of shoving it off to the side.
- Having a practice means that there is always a container for your emotions, however difficult or wonderful they might be.
- Having a practice means that everyday has the potential to provide a breakthrough, an epiphany or a moment of beauty.
- Having a practice means that you have an established routine that guarantees that you will create ‘something’ every day.
- Having a practice means that you have a body of work that you can be proud of and pride is the antidote for low self-worth.
- Having a practice means that you have learned to develop a practice and you can apply that in other areas of your life.
- Having a practice means that you are always, ALWAYS empowered to ‘do something’ about what you’re experiencing.
