inside out

A Creative Adventure of Self-Discovery

This 5-week art journaling e-course is an experience that could change your life.

Join us January 26th – February 27th, 2015 for an ALL NEW Inside Out experience.  More details to come.

Registration opens November 3rd, 2014!

Inside Out is an e-course adventure of the heart.  Through art, journaling, simple yoga, guided meditation and connection to a private, international community, you will reconnect to and explore the wisdom within you, the place that is there to guide you in life.  You will celebrate your unique brilliance and learn how to trust your intuition so you can create a life you love living every single day.

Are you looking for more meaning in your life?  Do you want to fulfill your life purpose?  Would you like to express your true gifts (we all have them), so you can be of service to the world?  Do you wish you were more creative?  Do you feel scattered, rushed, stressed, exhausted and overwhelmed?  Do you want to release emotional and mental clutter so you have energy for the things that matter most to you?  Are you living your life purpose and loving each day, but looking for connection with other life explorers? Would you like to learn and practice techniques that will help you feel more relaxed and peaceful?  Do you want to get more creatively inspired?  Do you want to breathe life into your dreams?  Do you want to reconnect to your intuition? Would you like to learn how to let go of “perfect” so you can set your inner-artist free?  (Yes…we are all artists…even you!) Are you ready to release negativity, self-doubt and judgment?  Would you like to feel more joy, peace and harmony – each and every day?  Do you want to embrace authentic, mindful living – where your interests, values and passions are integrated into your daily life?  Are you ready for some fun and adventure?

See what past Inside Out graduates are saying: HERE.

Thirteen years ago, I was living in Boulder, Colorado, surrounded by the most amazing nature. To this day, I still get so much of my inspiration from the mountains. I can smell a Ponderosa pine and feel like I’ve just gone to heaven. When I was living there, I was struggling to find my place in the world. I didn’t really know what to do with myself, and my mantra was “I’m not good at anything.”  (Self-doubt consumed me and I was a pro at negative self-talk!) Then a beautiful soul entered my life and she introduced me to The Artist’s Way, by Julia Cameron.

We gathered five amazing women, and for 12-weeks, we dove deeply into the book. Every week we took turns leading each other in creative experiences. Sometimes we felt vulnerable. Sometimes our fears and worries were exposed. Many times we discovered new things about ourselves. Things we liked. Things we didn’t. And all of us were changed by the community that we built together.   (Looking back on that time now that I’m a mother of three, I smile thinking about the free time I used to have.  I can barely find a day now where I have 20 minutes sometimes to spare, but moms can find creative inspiration and peace in the midst of motherhood, too. And it’s important that we do so!)  It took a lot of practice, but soon my not good at anything and not good enough mantras changed. I started believing in myself, and discovered a whole new world of positivity, expansion and endless possibilities.

Ultimately, I learned to TRUST my intuition. This trust led me down a new path. I moved back to the Midwest. A five year relationship came to an end. I dove deeply into all forms of creative expression. I journaled like crazy. And I discovered yoga and meditation.  Soon after, I found my husband and we’ve been married now for 10 years. We have three little boys and I continue to learn and practice what it means to live from the inside out – each and every day. I’ve been teaching yoga for 12 years (I’m a life coach, too) and have embraced it as part of my lifestyle.  For me, yoga is about celebrating the present moment, connecting more deeply to my heart center, and living life with gratitude and compassion. Practicing yoga has also taught me that I am the creator of my own life. I now know that everything in my external world is a reflection of my internal world. So the more I take time to journey within, the more peaceful and happy I feel.

Inside Out is more than an e-course; it’s a way of life.

Class runs for 5-weeks. However, you get to enjoy the course at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home…all while connecting with a wonderful online community.  And don’t worry…being a mother of three I know how busy our daily lives are!  I give you the weekends off AND the e-course material is always available an additional 4-weeks after our last day of class.

Don’t just take my word for it. Here’s what Kim from White Mountain, Alaska, had to say about her Inside Out experience:

This course is like a hot bath, a glorious sunrise and a delicious meal, all rolled into one. It gave me strategies to help me relax, see goodness, make the most of my energy and appreciate others. Best of all, Shannon helped me do this from the inside out, so that changes are personal, considered and full of hope. That this type of activity and support is offered online, world wide, is testament to Shannon’s vision and compassion, not to mention her masterful organization and support. The Inupiat Eskimos have a word for hello that translates, “continue to be – because the way you are is good.” That’s how this class made me feel.
