The Surprising Truth about Imagination

On Tuesdays I invite you Behind the Scenes at my studio.

Today:  When we look a little deeper, imagination isn’t the simple, playful activity it’s cracked up to be! It can be painful enough that we choose to shut it down – but that route holds pain too. How can use our imagination well? How can it help us open up possibilities – in our lives and in the world?

Being in the World

On Tuesdays I invite you Behind the Scenes at my studio.

Today:  It’s been a couple of weeks but I am back with a BTS. As we come to the end of spring, we are in the midst of not only a global pandemic but also the rise of the largest civil rights protest in the world in response to the killing of George Floyd. As you know, since blackouttuesday I muted my own feed while amplifying black voices in my Instagram stories. I have spent this time – and will continue to spend time – listening, learning and taking action, step by step. I’ve been sharing in my newsletter, on Instagram and now, here with you.

The Summer Studio Yearbook Is Available Now!

“I have never considered myself the least bit creative but exploring the yearbook has changed that big time. It is truly the best thing I have ever done for myself and it brings me more joy than I could ever have dreamt of.” Ulrika Persson

What is the Studio Yearbook? It’s a powerful fill-in-the-blank seasonal journal designed to support your creative practice and awaken your creative spirit. It offers core practices for your days, your weeks, your months and the season too. It is a private place for creative exploration, discovery and growth – and as you fill it, it becomes a reflection of the artist in you!

In your Studio Yearbook, you will tune into the energy of the season…

Learn to identify and focus on what matters to you…

 

And establish a daily creative practice that includes documenting your day, gathering gratitude and celebrating with gold stars.

And there’s so much more – setting course under the New Moon, creating dreamboards under the Full Moon, a place for creative challenge and for finding sanctuary, supportive video lessons, a live Q&A with me, an encouraging community…. the list goes on!

The Studio Yearbook is a creative adventure!

Let me give you a sneak peek into the Studio Yearbook!

Three years ago, the Studio Yearbook poured out of my heart and into the world. Since then hundreds of creatives have joined me on the journey, discovering more and more each day the magic and beauty that lies within their artistic heart.

“I’m having so much fun writing, drawing, colouring, painting, gluing (is that a word?) with my Studio Yearbook! There are also days I just write, think, write, feel, write, notice, write, fight with life, write, become aware, write etc, etc. … The Studio Yearbook is such a great way to help me see, to be mindful more often, to be ME more often and to make choices that suit me, nurture me, feed me.” Esther Jansen

Folks I’m in my 9th season now with the Studio Yearbook! Jamie says “love what you love” and I love my Studio Yearbook! It’s become an integral part of my days and it’s where I get to create, capture, celebrate and process life! I am grateful to Jamie, who is my favourite creative coach and one of my favourite human beans for sharing this with us! She is awesome, the Yearbook is awesome and a bonus…the community is awesome! Come join us!!! Sundeep Grewall

I hope you’ll join me and an encouraging community of Studio Yearbookers this summer!
