Yesterday I offered another Soul Affirmation class. One person was able to attend which enabled us to go deep for the six plus hours! Finding the right words that name the story is so important, so we really focused on the content first taking three-plus hours to ensure the words were right. Specific and genuine is key to making a successful deck help change the story, and she hit these out of the ballpark! This also showed me the value of offering one-on-one sessions or coaching sessions using this approach. All of the approaches have value and offer different benefits. Groups are wonderful in they enable the participants to witness each other and connect in community, often discovering their stories that hold them back are not just theirs. I would like to do a community art project around this too, maybe specifically for women somehow.
BUT going back to yesterday, I LOVE when participants are delighted with what they have created — I have seen it several times, including yesterday, when the person is holding their final deck and case and they start laughing from joy delighted they created something so beautiful! There is an immediate energetic shift. It reminds me of shamanic soul retrievals but more tactile and immediate for the person. When we were able to get the words right too for the deck, the person had a release of energy and joy — naming the right medicine is powerful!
I am so excited to be able to facilitate and hold space for people to do this work that is so healing and powerful! Look for virtual and in-person coaching offerings soon!
I’ll be offering Tuesday Night Art Journaling classes at Matrix Coworking — donation only. It will be super fun with themes for each night using color to explore, kicking off with a Red Thread Circle in connection to the moon. Through Spirit, I developed a Lunar calendar which you have the option of using in your art journal to explore while being mindful of where the Moon is in her cycle. This is meant to be super fun, focusing on the process and intuitive painting/creation rather than any specific end result.
Topics we’ll explore include Tree of Life, Thread Art, Stone Gifts. Stay tuned for further information!
Are you looking to create a stronger connection to yourself and others?
Are you looking to tap into a wellspring of energy that comes from you?
Are you looking to consciously engage in the stories you tell yourself, and leave behind the ones that prevent you from living life you truly desire?
If so, the Soulful Affirmation Card Deck class maybe for you! Using techniques as taught by Shiloh Sophia in Intentional Creativity, we will be making custom cards based on our inner guidance using watercolors and art supplies. No art skill is required to make a beautiful deck of cards, all supplies will be included including high quality 140 lb watercolor paper and glitter of course! These cards can be carried in your purse, set up on your altar, made into a prayer flag and no doubt other creative uses. They carry your intent and energy and invoke change steered by you!
This is a workshop/playshop designed to transform the stories that hold us back into the stories that call us forward. Many of us live with past beliefs about ourselves and our lives that keep us from creating the life we know we truly long for. When we allow ourselves to get those stories conscious, and bring them into the light through Intentional Creativity we have access to the very ‘soul’ of what needs to be transformed. These often shadowy and painful stories have become beliefs that are often truly holding us back in our lives: the story that you are running is often running your life. The amazing thing is that these stories provide us with the greatest insight into what it is we want to create by showing us where we have been living small, or have become asleep to our vitality.
This is an Intentional Creativity Workshop to Transform your old story into a soulful story through hand painted Affirmation Cards.
Each guest will leave the day with a set of at least (8) Affirmation cards they can use to explore a more soulful life. These cards represent the new story you are creating for your life.
