IN-PERSON CLASS: The Mirror: Mapping out Roadblocks and Flow (5 weekly classes)
NOTE: The class will run for 5 weeks, two hours each class with one class per week.
As a professional coach, I have come to see that the way we do one thing is the way we do many things. This means the same self-defeating habits can seep into many areas of our lives. On the other hand, it also translates into empowerment because successful methods can be applied to areas that need invigoration. With playfulness and spontaneity, we will create images via sketch, collage, and doodling. These images will be examined as a mirror into our perspectives, mindsets, and habits. Aspects of the image are interpreted and investigated like a treasure map. We will explore our default habits and patterns to see how we get in our own way and how to apply our natural flow into areas of resistance through image making, writing exercises, and group discussions. With a road map of how we stay blocked and how we can engage, we can start applying these to the personal goals we want to achieve. Free writing exercises will be part of each session based on a themed topic that incorporates our visual creation. The writing exercises observe our inner critics, the process of surrender, staying present, and waking up to our experiences. Each week, there will be an assignment to complete before the next class knowing others in the class are there to support and hold one another accountable. The class is for writers and non-writers and creatives of all levels.
Please bring a visually engaging magazine for the class to cut out, supplies to draw with, an unlined journal, scissors, a glue stick, a pen, and a sense of adventure.
