Our Annual EOY Wrap-Up
December 31, 2021 5:00 PM (This is different from last year)
🥰Old Journals will be weighed and wrapped up, New Journals will be dedicated. Even if you don't journal, join us for Pranayam, Poems, and Prayers to wrap up 2021 and get a great new start to 2022! Have a candle or a fireplace fire nearby and your fave beverage. 🔥 If you are able to dedicate a couple hours after the session to working with any of the modalities we will mention, please do so! I've received very positive feedback about this from some attendees.
Zoom link will be emailed to those who RSVP.
Make time for yourself for one or any of four Saturdays starting June 4 - online art lessons by our beloved Ann Casey (aka CC Goodfellow, author), former Woodstock resident, long-time artist now teaching and writing in Oklahoma. Even if you think there is no way you could draw anything, Casey's gentle guidance will have you proving otherwide while having fun. This time the price assumes you have your own charcoals or pencils. Classes start at 11am EDT (10am CDT) for an hour or so. Beginners welcome. Lessons include contour sketching, line drawing, and exercises from “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.”
Grab a friend and try something fun and social online. Sometimes we even color outside the lines!
Our May read for Wednesday June 1 selection is Old in Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over. A finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, this memoir of one woman's later in life career change is “a smart, funny and compelling case for going after your heart's desires, no matter your age” (Essence).

More than a Vision Board - it's your best Self brought into 3D on canvas in multi-media, that is, any supplies you want to work with on canvas, wood, or even paper. Val will provide the quotes, prayers, and thought prompts to help you consider your next step and integrate them into your piece. Don’t worry about collecting your treasures for the first class. It’s a process and the first class is introduction to the Inner Alchemy Idea of making art to express yourself.
If you do have a means to glue items down, please feel free to start on Day One, Saturday at 11am, March 12. You can collect items anytime during the month to add to your projects. Think of it as a 3D picture you are building as we discuss way we deal with our Environment, Boundaries, our Inner Child and the Polishing we should the world.
Feel free to break out any and all of your art supplies, broken jewelry, CPS (cheap plastic stuff), tiny toys or ticket stubs, yarn or material scraps you've hung on to (just me?!), photos, concert t-shirts, and of course, magazines and printed words that touch your inner self. We'll mindfully integrate and acknowledge the pieces as we create!
$40 for 4 classes on four consecutive Saturdays starting March 12 at 11am-12:30pm through April 2, 2022.
Fun and social online! #trynewthings
