Course Description

Experience the power of art journaling with certified Heartwork Journaling instructor Stephanie Brucher. Through a series of exercises designed to find inner connection and strength, Stephanie guides students to tap into their creative side to develop the tools necessary to make manifest positive changes in their lives. Using activities like doodling, writing prompts, and watercoloring, each class will focus on a different concept. Your first classes will address the elephants in the room, i.e. perfectionism and the inner critic, before evolving into exploring the power of creativity and visualization, and finally the discovery of inherent strengths and potential of “I AM.” You will receive personalized compassion, warm, and non-judgemental support, as you identify the self imposed limiting patterns and beliefs, and develop strategies for growth, and healing. Art and writing skills are not required! Just bring a curious mindset for a fun and life-changing experience that may well become the best part of your daily self-care. ALL LEVELS WELCOME
