YOU are writing the stories of your life every single day. These storeis unfold in your common moments. When you wake up in the darkness, make a single cup of tea, and begin your day. They unfold as you travel throughout what you feel is an ordinary moment but have the possibility to turn extraordinary. You never know when a moment or a person will change your life forever.
You tuck your stories into your pockets. Keeping moments like love, adventure, and travel, as well as heartbreak, sadness, and loss. As you go about your day your stories revisit you and you are reminded of a person you met or are transported back to a specific time. Something triggers your memories and instantly you are there.
These stories are yours and yours alone. No one else has taken your journey. No one else sees the world the way you do. These stories need to be celebrated, acknowledged, and sometimes let go off.
You have stories of bravery and courage that are filled with inspiration. You need to acknowledge that you are the star in those stories. YOU are the one who made them happen.
You also have stories that play on repeat in your head, dragging you through the mud when you don't deserve to be. These stories need to be let go of.
I invite you to unearth these stories. To gain trust in what spills out, celebrate the glorious moments, and let go of what no longer serves you. The page is there to catch your moments. Allow it the opportunity to hold your words safely.
I invite you to gather around my virtual table and join me for four weeks of unfurling. Writing and photography are the two tools that help me bravely step into my life. The page catch's my words and the images capture exactly where I am in the moment.
I want to sit along side you and guide you in using these two tools to unfurl into YOUR beautiful life.
Join me for four weeks as we explore the different ways our stories emerge through writing and photography. We will do this by diving into:
- setting intentions
- creating alters
- digging into the beauty of ceremony
week one :: intentions
We will explore setting intentions, learn how to clear the path, and acknowledge your every day stories and the stories you most need to tell.
week two :: speaking to ourselves
We will hold gently the stories we tell ourselves and how we speak to ourselves. We will learn to show up with love and compassion even in the midst of the most difficult stories.
week three :: letting go
There are stories that we avoid telling, bury deep, and do not want anyone to know about. But these are your stories and they need to be told even if no one else hears them but you. Gently we will let go of these stories as we tell them one word at a time.
week four :: dreaming with ease and grace
t is time for some deep celebration and we will do that by acknowledging how far you have come and dreaming up where you may want to go next.

- A camera. Nothing fancy needed - your phone will do just fine.
You do not need to be a writer, creative, or a photographer to be in this class. I will be taking you through with many different ways to approach each exercise. This class is about opening up and unfurling into the great unknown. For it is there that your true self is waiting for you.
