Your life is full. You value a life of meaning. Perhaps you’re buzzed and thriving on it all, high on hope of a new season. Perhaps you’re feeling a little dull, numbed out from navigating so many things going on in your life or in the world around you.
If only you had a little intentional space to just breathe and be present — to honour the things that are going on in your life or that are tugging at your heart for attention.
Step into this time of entering a new season to come and take to pause, show up for yourself and set your intentions for your path ahead in this fun and unique vision board workshop, with a calligraphy twist.
In this workshop you will be invited to:
- Reconnect with yourself in an intentional space of reflection through guided prompts, visualization, journaling and mindful lettering in an encouraging, supportive, brave space.
Engage in creative reflection and receive the messages your life is speaking to you from the previous season.
- Create a tangible and meaningful visual reminder of the gifts of the season, through thick or thin, to distill insight revealed as a powerful reminder of the gifts of the season, through thick and thin.
Share honest conversations and create meaningful connections with other like-minded, big-hearted people in community.
By sharing in honest heart-centred conversations and creative art expression, you’ll have opportunity to make meaningful connections with what’s going on in your heart and life, and with others in community.
All of you is welcome here, whether you’re feeling stirred to be still or to speak, whether you’re dressed and in your office, or taking zoom calls from bed in your messy bun with the camera off. Whether you consider yourself creative or not, beginner or seasoned — all levels of artists, non-artists, calligraphers, and curious calligraphers, are welcome! Even if you think you have bad handwriting, you are welcome here. Beginners and all levels of mindfulness also welcome (no prior experience necessary).
Focusing on creative exploration (and less on precise technical how-to’s), this workshop will empower you with expressive lettering as a tool for self-care and self-discovery.
Come with an open heart, ready to be present and to engage. Leave with a fresh perspective and a fuller heart to embrace the season ahead with clarity, confidence, and intention to fill your life with the things that matter most to you.
Whether you consider yourself creative or not, beginner or seasoned — all levels of artists, non-artists, calligraphers, and curious calligraphers, are welcome! Even if you think you have bad handwriting, you are welcome here.
Please note that this time will be focused on creative exploration, which anyone can do! (If you prefer a more technical class, you can view my series of technical workshops here.)
We invite you to Show up for yourself, refresh your heart, and turn on your creative spark. Start the new season off on a good foundation. Invite a loved one for a creative date… consider it a mini-retreat!
Still not sure? Here’s what one participant had to say:
“After months of feeling unable to stop and be present, this workshop was the magical solution I’d been looking for. Therapeutic, relaxing, eye-opening and fun, I felt like I not only connected with myself for the first time in ages, but I also experienced a rare, authentic connection with the other people who were there with me. Learning that, despite our different backgrounds, we’re all struggling with similar challenges and worries, and all needed this workshop as desperately as each other. For 4 hours the world stopped spinning and I got an understanding of who I am, where I’m at, and what I need to move forward in a healthier, more enjoyable way. And I learned that you can stop for 4 hours and the world doesn’t end. In fact it gets a little clearer and brighter.” ~Kat Elizabeth, Entrepreneur & Actress
