Um, wow. What happened to this week?! There are three blog posts I hoped to start and a tonne of stuff I needed to get done and it’s all been shelved in favour of being sick. Again. That’s what happens when you help throw a birthday party for a darling 4-year-old boy and invite 30 of his little friends! While I lie in my bed and gather my strength *ahem* here’s some stuff I’ve enjoyed this week…

And finally, registration is now open for the spring session of Journal Your Life! We go deep in this class, digging into our inner and outer worlds, our dreams, our beliefs and our purpose in this lifetime. There are as many ways to journal as there are people on the planet, so I’ll be sharing my own particular flavour, a mix of traditional pen-and-paper recording + visual mapping, with a side of washi tape thrown in for good measure (stationery addicts unite!). By the end of the course you’ll have a much deeper, more honest, relationship with yourself, and whether you continue to use your Creative Dream Journal or expand into other intuitive ways of journalling, you’ll definitely have the journalling fire burning bright in your life.

The spring session starts on Monday April 7th and runs for six weeks. Registration is happening over HERE — I’d love to see you in class! xo
