Dream a little dream with me...How it works

Welcome to the EnVision online intention course. 

In the spirit of my book Creative Awakenings: Envisioning the Life of Your Dreams Through Art, Envision the Life of Your Dreams will take you on a 3-month visual journaling adventure, to uncover the seeds of your heARTs desire. Your journal will hold all your intentions, dreams and field notes to help you create a vision for your life.

Each month, you will receive an EnVision prompt and two high quality videos featuring a visual journaling technique to inspire and deepen your creative process.

"Take part in a journey of the imagination in a nurturing and supportive environment where there are no rules and anything goes. Don't let the word art scare you...absolutely no creative experience is required." ~Sheri Gaynor, Creative Awakenings: Envisioning the Life of your Dreams Through Art

A little bit about me...I have been leading creative courses and workshops for over 25 years. It is incredibly exciting to offer EnVision in this online format, to those who may not be in my geographical area. To learn more, hop over here!

"Is this class for me?"

This course is suitable for anyone who is considering or in the midst of a life shift or transition or those seeking a non-verbal way to access their inner wisdom.

The poem that drives the EnVision process and practice was written by the Terma Collective. It is how I came to hear the "voice" inside me that knew my life as it had been, was no longer a fit. 

For some of us this voice is a whisper, for others a howl, we may hear, yet turn away from, due to a fear that we can't live a life that brings us joy, passion and purpose.

The full poem was published with permission of the Terma Collective, and is included in my book. The full poem is also included in this workshop, intended to be used as a jumping off point for you, as it was for me.

The gift of a self-guided format, is that you can start this course any time you might feel the call to something beyond your current awarness.

COURSE INFO


Each month, you will receive an EnVision prompt and two high quality videos featuring a visual journaling technique to inspire and deepen your creative process.


Skill Level: "Sheri, I don't have a creative bone in my body," is something I have heard literally thousands of times in the course of my career. Truth be told, we are innately creative and somewhere along life's path, we were cut off from this deep essential well. 

As with most of my classes, the class is suitable for both never evers and those who may be more advanced but seeking to learn something new and up level their skill set. 

Self-guided: This course has been designed to be a 3-month self-guided adventure. Lessons will arrive in your e-box (PLEASE BE SURE TO WHITELIST THE COURSECRAFT ADDRESS) and you'll be able to work on them at your own pace, day or night, on your creative time schedule, from anywhere in the world. 

For many of my international students, Zoom has been a challenge. For my students across the pond, I hoping this alleviates the middle of the night wild-heARTed creativity sessions, but heck that may in fact be how you roll! 

Access: 24/7 Yee HA! You have unlimited access! The lessons are video based. Content and the inspirational PDF’s are easily downloadable, for ease of reading and saving to your computer. Each lesson will build upon the next. We begin with the basic foundation of the EnVision process and with each lesson, you will also learn and inspirational technique to deepen your EnVision practice. There are colorful photographs and plenty of written tips and inspiration along the way.

"Do I need to buy your book?"

The course is intended as a stand alone adventure, so purchasing my book is an option, not a necessity. The book will enrich the workshop, as it includes 11 national artists and a Deck of Transformation, with additional creative activities, to deepen this experience.

SUPPLIES


As a facilitator, it is my goal to use simple and inexpensive materials, so that as a student, you are not overburdened with expense. In this way, I will offer you options for purchase, so you can make decisions about what is right for your budget. 

I have participated in workshops where I spent hundreds of dollars on supplies that were never even discussed in the workshop. I learned the hard way how to do it differently.

It takes years of experimentation, to build your creative studio. There will be supplies that rock your world and others that leave you flat. The same goes for paint and color. You will find that you are naturally drawn to certain colors, this is your intuitive palette and where individuality and developing your own style come into play.

Gearing up for the journey
I am a huge advocate of using what you have!
Oftentimes, the "I don't have the 'right' materials," gremlin, becomes a subtle form of sabatoge. 

Starting slow and building a creative treasure box, will do wonders for that particular gremlin. Remember, it takes YEARS of making a mess, taking risks and experimenting to build your visual language and creative tool kit. 

I will go into more detail about supplies in the course, yet, for most of you, you can get away with: Magazines, glues stick, Mod Podge®, scissors and any kind of paint you have on hand and inexpensive chip brushes. Some of my journal brushes are literally 10 years old! 

Ready to grow? For those of you who would like to start building your creative toolbox, I will have optional purchase links in the class supply list.

The EnVision Journal

As many of you know, my journals are a little like me, rough-and-tumble. I want them to be a place where I work intuitively, letting go of the outcome. I spill my heART to the pages without worrying about perfection or the end result.

Do you need a little kick in the pants? Start with this FREE OFFERING! 

If you’re feeling inspired to have a unique handmade artifact you create from start to finish, you can start right now by joining my free Creating a Handbound Journal course. 

If you don’t have the time or inclination to create your own handbound journal, I’ll be providing a link to the Book of Dreams journal featured in my book. 

I have crates full of the original Book of Dreams journals and they are each unique and gorgeous in their own way.
