Art, Heart and Healing Journal - week 1

I first read about this online journaling class on Jan's ArtyATC Journey
The website is Willowing & Friends
and the class is called Art, Heart and Healing
Jan's first week's pages are great and she's so full of good things to say
... I thought I'd give it a go

The first week deals with your inner critic.
The point is to translate your inner critic's really bad and tacky way of communicating to you 
- mostly by put downs and abuse -
into what your inner critic might be really trying to say.
Usually it's going to be something protective and self-preservationist
... but not necessarily with the best advice 
... mostly it will be advice like: "QUIT!!"
So that's where you have to step in and weed out the good from the bad.
It was a really fun exercise ....
the class is free and Tammy is a great teacher.
Maybe I'll see you over there :)

Lovely, I signed up for the class, but had trouble downloading the video. I do love what you did, though, and this is great advice.

Elizabeth said...

sounds wonderful -- maybe I'll go over and check it out!

And I love those two pages that you've shown...

your pages are so filled with what i too feel at times...seems like a class to look into to.

you immediately prompted me to think of my own inner critic, the one that says, don't even bother, you can't do it anyway. sometimes i think my procrastination is not that, it is fear.

behind every critic is a goddess waiting to happen
