In this 4 week journalling course, you will learn how to...
Check in with yourself and surrender to vulnerability.
To your inner and outer landscapes. To create the conditions in which creativity thrives.
To yourself through free writing & noticing. Discover what’s truly on your mind and in your heart & soul.
Loosen up. Explore. Make a mess. Have fun. Flow is no state for the art police.
Of course. Scribbles are about to become your best friend.
Build Layered Backgrounds
Open possibilities by removing control. Create interesting layers. LOTS of them.
Use Found Imagery in personal Storytelling
Letting the image choose you. Integration and Unity. Getting your images into the page.
Tap into your subconscious awareness
When the art makes you. It doesn’t have to make sense to anyone. But it will to you.
Share your self and work, with confidence.
Honouring and owning. Being seen and heard.
"This process works so well because it works as a lens with which to dedicate a self-discovery/expression session, and it's fascinating to see the results....like a mystery unfolding, unraveling what your soul wants you to know. Thanks so much for leading us down this path."
"I am learning so much about being in flow, trusting the process, letting go of judgement as well as more technical aspects like color combination, texture, layering, and experimenting with my art tools. I can't wait to get to my backgrounds each day."
"It is powerful and important work. Amanda is truly inspiring. I plan to make raw journaling a daily practice now even if I only make a few marks. Showing up and working on healing by setting an intention into the work. The textures and layers that emerge are beautiful. If you want to work on your well being I can’t recommend this powerful and deep journal work enough. Don’t think you have to be able to draw. It couldn’t be further from the truth. Thank you Amanda so much."
"I’m loving EVERYTHING about this class so much. You’ve given me permission to embrace my authentic, unpolished, slap it down and go personality and leave my miserable inner critic at the door! This has been a work in process for over 20 years and somehow with your words, your work it has just 'clicked'. I haven’t enjoyed creating this much ever. I’m having a blast!"

Participants experience the weekly live coaching calls with Amanda throughout this course, as the cherry on the cake.
The opportunity to interact this way, to ask questions, to share, explore and be coached on whatever comes up for you through the process, is what takes this experience above and beyond.
There have been many revelations leading to significant - and for some, 'lifechanging' - break throughs on these calls.
The value of this for most students has been priceless.
