Maybe you’ve heard about Creative Journaling but you’re not sure what it is ?

 

Keep reading………

 

      ” My Creative Journal is a place where I learn to listen: what do I need? what does my heart long for? who are my people? where are my tribe? what do I want to do next? what/who inspires me? what would nourish me right now?

         Its where my healing unfolds, where all of my desires emerge, where all of my dreams take root, where my creative ideas reveal themselves.  Its a private creative space where I find alignment, where I connect and keep re-connecting with my Higher Purpose.”

 

A creative sketchbook or journal is so many things.  A place for thoughts, ideas & dreams, fantasies and fears.  A place for self expression, exploration and self discovery. Its a place where there is space and freedom for transformation, for magical & mystical happenings.

Why do I keep a creative journal..….?    To keep alive the search for me, for self discovery & self expression.  For me, Creative journaling is a magical process of Alchemy

 

ALCHEMY……

defined as the PROCESS of taking something ordinary

and turning it into something extraordinary, often in

a way that cannot be explained

 

While I don’t think of myself as an ‘Artist’, I now allow myself to think of myself as ‘Creative’ and that creativity is crying out to be expressed !  I love to experiment & play with ‘art’ materials but I’m not trying to make ‘Art’.

 

This workshop is for you if you

  • are looking for a creative outlet for your ideas

  • are wanting to express yourself creatively

  • are seeking a way of processing feelings & emotions

  • are looking for motivation & inspiration in any area of your life

  • want to embrace & express who you really are

  • would like to explore a different tool for connecting with your creative voice

  • would like to connect with like minded people

  • want to unlock your creative potential

If you have previously taken part in one of my free 30 Day Journal project, this workshop might feel like a natural ‘next step’ on your Journaling Journey

 

Friends came to share an experience in creative journaling last year

What will we be doing ?

 

During the day you will be guided through an exploration of your creative ideas & dreams, using simple & easily accessible art materials.  As we work & play we will talk about all the different ideas we have about how we might use a Creative Journal to help us on our journey.  I can share with you some of my own experiences of creative journaling, how it has helped me to explore my own ideas and start to make some of my dreams take shape.

If you’ve ever tried creating anything new, a new journal,  writing a book/poem/song, a painting or picture you’ll know that the Blank Page can feel like a formidable place

 

The Blank Page is a Vulnerable Place

but

It is also a Totally Accepting & Creative place  

 

If you’re undecided about whether this workshop sounds like its right for you, right now, take a minute to notice the PUSH -PULL of the opposites of the emotional dialogue going on

FEAR – POSSIBILITY

ANXIETY – OPPORTUNITY

STUCKNESS – LIBERTY

Allow yourself the opportunity to learn what you are capable of (or at least start the journey).

 

When you sign up for the workshop, you will be sent more information about the day with suggestions about things you might like to bring in order to get the most out of your day.

 

All basic supplies will be provided, paint, pens, paper, glue etc.  The things you bring will make the day & your experience much more personal & individual.

 

This workshop will be taking place in my own small but beautifully formed Creative Space Studio in Derbyshire.  I am incredibly fortunate to live in beautiful surroundings with wonderful views of the Derwent Valley and it was always my intention once I took the leap of faith to create the studio. to share it with you my fellow creative seekers.

 

If weather permits we can take full advantage of the location to work, play & experiment outside to enjoy the wonderful surroundings.
