Discovering & Restoring Through Creative Play

The second session of my e-course, Inside Out: A Creative Adventure of Self-Discovery, is ending today.  It has been another magical, amazing, revealing, vulnerable, messy, exciting experience.  

For the last 4-weeks, over 70 people from all over the world joined me to become bold explorers of their lives.  Here are just a few moments we shared together.


Making messes.

Celebrating authenticity.

Defining values.

Discovering new affirmations.





And having SO much fun.

I continue to feel blessed that I get to connect, share, and grow with so many wonderful adventurers through this experience.  I am inspired to continue the Inside Out journey, and I'm still in the process of developing a new summer course that I'm really excited to share with you!

In the meantime, though, I'm taking the entire month of May off just to restore my own creativity!  I've signed up for Amelia's lovely and inspiring e-course, Experimental Art, and I'm treating myself to the Wish*Full virtual retreat this weekend!

So lots more doodling, staining, messing, painting, drawing, ripping, wondering, exploring, playing and just "being me" around here. 

Your Personal Reflection:  What creative messes are you getting into?

  7. This is so funny, because I came in from outside to get out of the heat, after a fun filled afternoon of doing splatter paint fun with the boys. I love messy creative play, there is nothing better.

  8. It was a great course, Shannon! Sure helped to get my creative juices flowing. Have a wonderful, fun, and rejuvenating May!
