New Year, New Slate right? I'm excited to start breathing some life back into this blog and what better way to start than with a give-away!?
A Double-Stephanie giveaway to be exact, where you'll have a chance to win a spot in one of 2 different e-courses who are based on a love of all things "seasonal".
One lucky dear will earn a spot in my dear friend Stephanie Levy's Creative Courageous Winter Session!! A course that I'm honored to be a guest contributor in. I have known Stephanie for years and have avidly followed her beautiful mixed media work. This is a great opportunity to work closely with an inspiring and talented woman.
Another lucky lady will earn a spot in my upcoming cleanse Deeply Rooted - The Winter Cleanse! A gentle, 10 day food-based cleanse designed to support, instead of shock your body into detoxification. Where I will show you how to release common offending foods out of your diet and how to add them back in to see if there are any sensitivities or shifts that need to be made. You will learn to feed your body what it truly craves in order to live radiantly.
So without further delay, let me introduce you to Stephanie. She kindly agreed to answer a few of my questions so you could learn a little bit more about her!
As a fellow artist how do you feel creativity is connected to health and wellness?
Personally, I know that when I'm feeling healthy and fit, I'm much more creative and productive. When we take time to work on our health and wellness through eating well, getting enough rest, and exercising, the big reward is having increased energy to create more fabulous art, writing, and creative projects!
It's not always easy for me as I tend to burn the candle at both ends when I get busy, but I do want to make taking care of my body a much bigger priority for 2014.
Why do you think winter is an important time to connect to our creativity?
Winter and the beginning of a new year are wonderful times to take a good look at our lives and think about what we'd most like to do in the upcoming months. Winter is one of my favorite seasons to plan fresh work for new creative projects and get fired up to exercise and eat healthy food. Cleanses like yours are great for releasing any accumulated toxins in our systems that might be clogging things up. I'm looking forward to your upcoming Winter Cleanse!
Tell us a bit about your motivation to create your course Creative Courageous Year and where to sign up!
In 2014, I wanted to do things a bit differently and plan a more focused, streamlined approach to my online courses. I love the idea of "seasonal" anything - and so I decided to create a year long course series based on the seasons for Creative Courageous Year.
Creative Courageous Year has lots of wonderful goodies for everyone - fun weekly mixed media art and diy projects, visual journaling with seasonal themes, nature walks to notice the beauty of our surroundings, delicious, healthy recipes, inspiring guest interviews, encouraging personal videos, and even a virtual book club.
All of the course material is posted daily Monday-Friday for 5 weeks, and my international group of participants will have the chance to connect and share on our private website, our special Facebook group, and on our group Pinterest boards.
I love leading creative online courses, and I absolutely adore my participants - we have such an amazing, supportive community. I'd be delighted for you to join us - and we're starting soon on January 20th!
I hope to see you in class next Monday,
Thank you so much for sharing a bit of yourself with us today! I'm really looking forward to your course!
