Keep True: The Compass of You

What if your art journal could become a sacred space, a sanctuary where you spill your heart-­howls and joy-­songs?

What if every page served as guidebook to your most fulfilled, passionate, vibrant life?

In Keep True, we’ll develop and deepen an intimate practice, using intuitive collage to align with personal truth.

We’ll explore soul-­stirring prompts designed to honor our unique life­-journeys. Most importantly, we’ll discover the art of keeping true to ourselves, even/especially when we are feeling vulnerable, anxious, or uncertain. At the end of this workshop, your art journal will be a compass for everyday life: a sacred practice and process that helps you Keep True.

21 Secrets: Fall 2015 released as a huge ebook on September 28th (over 150 pages with 25+ hours of video, full-color photos, templates, & more). All lessons are available now and are self-paced, so you can join in any time.

Friends, if you're already part of our community at The Phoenix Soul, you know how much I love art journaling. Creative expression has saved me countless times, helping me process and find clarity through times of grief, anxiety, and confusion. And, of course, boost joy in the happy times! I always include peeks into my art journal in our magazine pages. 

Here's your chance to come closer--to see video of me creating, and to explore the trademark kind of soul-stirring prompts that we already know and love in The Phoenix Soul.

I hope you join us! I'm so proud to be part of this session. Will I see you there, friend?

with much love,

FRee :: join Connie & Amanda for an honest, vulnerable, tender audio interview.

"I know how hard it is to feel like you're not enough. Vulnerability, now, it's kind of my specialty. I try to tell the truth, even when it's something I'm tempted to hide. Because living authentically has become the most important thing to me.

". . . Shame is a liar. Shame would have us believe that who we are isn't good enough, and that we need to fit in to matter . . ." -Amanda Fall
