As a little girl, I’d sit in my parents’ green lazyboy rocker and watch back-to-back episodes of Mister Rogers on our local PBS stations. He would say, “I like you just the way you are” as he looked right at me through that old television. And somewhere in my little four-year-old heart, I would simply and profoundly believe him.
This belief has led me to this moment writing these words to you: Honey, you are enough, just the way you are.
My adult self though knows that this can be hard for us to remember every day. It can get forgotten amidst the to-do lists and the moments when you think, “How did I get here?” And we can get overwhelmed by the roles we play and get lost in the daily routine.
I want to help you come back to center, to knowing this truth, through accessible, manageable self-care and mindfulness practices that will help you cultivate a beautiful relationship with you.
Here are current ecourses to help you do this:
Tell It: Color
Come along for 14 days of color adventures. Tell It: Color is your invitation to create space for creative play as you explore the stories waiting in the colors around and inside you. You'll choose the medium, and I'll provide prompts, inspiration, and space for connection as we take back the gray days of February and fill them with color.
This is going to be a fun, easygoing class, and I'd love for you to come along.
Dates: February 14 - 27.
Registration is closed. The next round will take place this summer.
Tell It: Collage
This March, come along and dive into the mediums of collaging + journaling (plus a big dose of inspiration and connection) to help you tell the stories waiting inside you.
But this course is even more than that.
It sets the foundation for creative self-care that you can do almost anywhere so that you feel supported and connected to your truth and inner wisdom as you move through the world.
And it connects you with a community of kindreds each finding their way to telling their stories every day. Come along for 21 days of creating and unearthing your stories.
Dates: March 21 - April 10. Learn more and register.
The blank page, the blinking cursor, the big white canvas, the camera in the corner. They sit there waiting.But in that empty space, an entire world awaits. A world that you (yes, you) create by simply picking up your pen, putting your fingers to the keyboard, grasping your paintbrush, bringing your camera up to your eye.
There are stories to be told honey. Stories waiting inside you that are ready. And I want to help you tell them. Come along for 15 days of prompts and inspiration.
Dates: September 14-28 :: Tuition: $25
