Many goal setting and planning tools offer helpful guidance and techniques, but they leave out an essential, foundational part of the goal-setting process - taking the time to understand our FEELINGS around the goals we have and getting clarity about WHY we want to achieve that goal. Apart from external gains (more money, more beauty, less weight, etc), traditional formula’s skip over the process of cultivating the healthy, nourishing internal “soil” from which we want to grow.
Part of the fun isn’t only creating the art itself, but watching it evolve and change shape over time - just as life does. I’ve been doing this practice for over 3 years and it has been so fun to see how my expression has changed over the years - even now I get excited just thinking about it.
Whatever sort of artistic expression is calling to you at this moment, that is what you should explore with the support of this workshop; whether it’s photography, knitting, watercolor, oil paints, crayons, mixed-media collage - literally ANYTHING GOES! Just create and remember the most important step TO ENJOY.
This practice is not meant to replace any list writing, bullet journaling or calendar planning tools you already use. No artistic experience is required for this course, my goal is to make it more fun and easier than ever to dive into the goal-setting process with a refreshed perspective.
We've all been there. When your ideas and thoughts were once aflutter and glimmering inside your head - but they just fall flat on the floor the moment you try to speak.
Art allows our intuition and emotion to shine through in a way that sharing with words can sometimes make cloudy. We try to express to friends, family and, most importantly, to ourselves what our goals and dreams feel like - but finding the “right” way to express them is often challenging and can leave us a little less confident than before we spoke, when the vision was dancing around in our brain.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
To have fun and enjoy the process
This exploration is part mindfulness, part flow journaling, part art making.
To walk away with a path towards clarity, or as I like to call it - The Magic!
Getting clear on who you are, what you want to do, how to spend your time and what you can create to serve the community around you
A unique artistic representation of you and your current goals and focus
A tool to support your ability to say YES to things that serve you and NO to the things that don't
The ability to create space, mentally and physically for visioning and dreaming
A daily visual reminder of your strength abilities, compassion, worth and the power of your intuition
This means you are always connected with a group of people who will support you and celebrate your unique vision throughout your journey.
Like any worthwhile endeavor, the benefits will start to unearth themselves the more we immerse ourselves in the practice. This workshop isn’t intended to be done at any particular time or in any regimented frequency - but rather it is something to soak in whenever we feel we need to create space for ourselves or urge to get back to our center to figure out what our next steps or decisions should be in life or in work.
Join me for this workshop whenever it feels productive and motivating for you! Remember this is meant to add value to the planning and day to day activities you are already doing. This will help you to circle around what matters most, the heart of it all, more than a to-do list, bullet journal or project management system can. Those tools are helpful methods to track progress, but they are not representative of the essence of the goal itself. Without the vision to remind us of WHY we are doing what we are doing, the lists and deadlines and plans can easily make us feel bogged down and stressed.
Our modern world has built up certain constructs to tell us what success looks like. The seven-figure jobs, the fancy cars, the 5 star hotels. On some level we all feel the push of this cookie-cutter version of success. The Mindset to Magic Workshop is about breaking out of that mold. It’s about learning what YOUR VISION of success feels like and then embracing, moving and creating space for that feeling to flourish. This doesn't mean you shouldn't go after the seven-figure job, but let that be an added bonus to your pursuit of feeling good, not the thing that's in the drivers seat, making the decisions.
This course is meant to help us learn how to discover and cultivate our own creative bubble that we can explore in, experiment in, and then lean into all the foward-motion and uplift that comes with it. This workshop is a process meant to help you learn how to get back to to the feelings of comfort, calm, excitement and expansion whenever life, to-do lists and more practical realities dull their shine.
