First, you gotta love yourself.
A mixed-media self-love project.
Negative self talk doesn't serve you. You gotta love yourself!
In teaching hundreds of people over the years, the number one thing people share with me is that their own fears and negative self-talk get in the way of how they really want to live their lives. If you suffer from doubt, the "I'm not good enoughs", or fear this is the class for you!
It's hard to be happy when there's someone criticizing you all day long - and that person is you.
What if you were able to convert that inner critic into an inner cheerleader? What if you could see, touch and know your own unique one-of-a-kind self? What if you knew how beautiful and made of love you are?
This class was created to help you see this higher version of you that already exists.
In this class you will:
- go on a guided visualization to tangibly see and picture your highest self
- create a meaningful and intentional mixed media artwork including a love letter to yourself, collage, and paint.
- follow along, step-by-step with me as I share my creative process - pause and paint or work in real-time.
I KNOW the fastest way to impress new messages on the brain is with images. Making art with intention literally changes how you see yourself so much faster than anything else.
The Golden Rule - do unto others, and love your neighbor as you love yourself implies that you love yourself! You can only give as much as you have to give, and to really show up in your life, you gotta love yourself first.
I'm Cheryl. I'm a joy-seeking, meaning making, idea generating, powerful creator.
My life is driven by three questions:
What do I want to create today?
Who do I need to be to create it?
How can I serve to remind others that they are powerful creators, too?
I LOVE life, because I know what it's like to NOT love life so much. My life's passion is sharing the magic and joy of creativity and the gifts of mindfulness with YOU. I know that if I can take my life from darkness, depression and anxiety to a space of light, love and utter happiness, then anyone can! I overcame a very tough childhood that makes me a statistical anomaly. The level of love, compassion, insight and forgiveness I gleaned from it has made me feel like it was a gift, and that it's my DUTY to be a sunshiny light for others. I LOVE to watch people grow.
In the past 20 years I have done a PhD's worth of research (and certifications) in the areas of mindfulness, neuroscience, creativity and mindset, and have used this knowledge and wisdom to become the person I am, creating a life I absolutely love. I believe in the power of self-actualization and there truly is nothing greater to me that watching you discover how incredibly unique and brilliant you are. You are literally one of a kind, you are a creative light with a particular zone of genius in you, and if you aren't actualizing, you are robbing yourself and the people you touch of your light and your gifts.
Fun Stuff About Me:
Aside from being in my studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband and teens, hiking, playing with my fur-babies Nama, and our tri-pawd pup Peg. I'm usually laughing about something with friends, learning something (because I'm nerdy like that), making art, or probably listening to music & dancing. I love adventure travel, I'm freakishly punctual, I'm a compulsive book sniffer, and I think all people are miraculous geniuses and I love to ask questions and listen. I'm an ENFP. My BANK code is AKNB, my top three character traits are appreciation of beauty and excellence, curiosity and creativity. And don't judge me, but I totally hate cheese.
