Registration is ongoing, course materials available for one year.

openbookondesk.jpgDistant Travelers and Seekers; 
My goal is to offer a similar intimate experience to the five week programs that were held at my Enchanted Studio in Albuquerque, NM.  Introspection is not valued in this world, so consider yourself a kindred pioneer, a rebel, a revolutionary.  We know who we are and we like it this way.  It's time to tell it like it is.  Step out of your comfort zone and into the shadows.  Join my posse.  Together, we will light the way.
No experience Necessary. Peer inside your tattered book covers;  
the beauty is within your pages. 
(no prior experience necessary but a certain level of self awareness is expected for this kind of deep inner work)
Course Materials:

- how to choose a book for your visual journaling process
- supply list for mixed media expressions

- how to prepare your creative space

- the philosophy and definitions of terms unique to my process of self discovery

- recommended  reference materials & library for books on the multitude of subjects discussed

- weekly assignments utilizing mixed media to combine journal writing exercises with image making
- “homework” assignments to support each exercise and develop this process as an ongoing practice
- a multitude of video fully explaining techniques

- full color PDF files to download workshop material to read at your leisure
- mp3 files of most of the text to record or  download and listen to while you work!
- Tribal Council:  Group forum questions to encourage the shared experience which is an important aspect of this inner journey.  You are not alone. (Though I cannot respond to everything, I monitor this group for safekeeping and choose a few posts to comment on in depth each week.)

Tribal Council: 
Much of the vision for this class is to connect a community through their creativity. Each class session, or chapter, will represent a diverse collective of individuals with a broad spectrum of artistic and life experience with which they bring to the group.  In working with common contextual themes such as self portraits, vision letters, found object collages and narratives, the group is united in their individual search for inner and outward connection. This will be a safe and supportive environment for you to reclaim what was lost, stolen, pushed aside, forgotten, abandoned, buried, strangled, stomped down, beaten, tamed, quieted, silenced, taken away, violated, abused.  Celebrate what is uncovered, in all its tragedy, beauty, and glory.  Your Visual Journal will be your reference book for soul matters;  a secure place where you will be prompted to face your own experience by making that experience a tangible image through my mixed media techniques of combining words with images in the safe container of a book for transformation and healing.

Welcome, to the Revolution
