Art journaling frees your heart and your mind.

PROCESS is the emphasis, NOT PRODUCT.

Focus on what feels good to you, not what someone else expects from you.

The art journal, while artistic, is not about creating art, but about personal story, emotions, and process. Using color, texture, line, pattern, marks, collage, images, layers, and words, it is a powerful and joyful tool for uncovering your heart's story, working through what troubles you, and just plain old playful expression.

Come paint and journal, learn new techniques, and explore the materials. Artist and expressive arts facilitator, Susie Stonefield Miller, and artist and holistic wellness and creativity coach, Alice Pennes, will introduce you to the process of art journaling, give you a tour of the studio, and teach lessons throughout class on how to use paint, collage, rubber stamps, stencils and more; how to loosen up; and how to dig deep into your heart and journal what really is percolating inside you.

Unfold Studio is a safe, sacred and magical space overflowing with art supplies. Our classes are relaxing, inspiring, and awakening. This is inner work, contemplative and introspective.

Come Back to Center: New Year's Inspiration Words Retreat Day

Unfold Your Creative Spirit Studio

$149.00

ONLY 5 SPOTS LEFT!!! *****This meetup is not closed but you must REGISTER at: http://www.susiestonefieldmiller.com/the-shop/cbtc **** Sign up for 2 or more winter workshops/retreat days at Unfold Studio and get a 10% discount on your total! NEWYEARS10 Inspiration Words Retreat Day We will dive into the inspirational words that help us to manifest an intention-filled life. I will lead you on a peaceful journey of expression throughout the retreat, intertwining an entire morning spent reflecting on the year behind you in your workbook aided by guided meditations and other prompts. Central to the day will be: a guided Word of the Year workshop AND a guided inspiration card deck workshop, two powerful and profound practices that help you listen to your inner knowing about what you most need to manifest and what you need to guide you in the coming year. Manifesting a word for 2019: The practice of choosing a word for the year is about opening up to your intuition and setting an intention for your next trip around the sun. Your word can help guide you, help focus your choices, help remind you of what you most desire to manifest in the next 365 days. Choosing a word differs from making New Year's resolutions in that it leaves shame and failure out of the equation. Choosing a word is like reminding yourself to return to your breath when meditating. Your word brings you back to your heart. And that is something you can do again and again throughout the year and learn something new about yourself in the process. Making an inspiration card deck: An extension of choosing a word for the year is creating a deck of cards (10-20) that holds words that also help to focus your intentions, dreams, and desires. These words can be reminders of values you want to bring into your life (play, joy, bliss), actions you want to remember to take (give, pause, breathe), or concepts that move you (flow, courage, heart). I have developed an easy and fun process using watercolor paper, spray inks, and stencils that creates gorgeous cards on which you can write your words. The deck can be one you use for yourself or that you gift to a loved one. for more info: http://www.susiestonefieldmiller.com/come-back-to-center/ Included in this workshop: all materials and a full-color, 30+ page, spiralbound workbook created by Susie Miller (owner of Unfold Studio), Come Back to Center: Creating a Life of Intention.
