Fire Within Series


Celebrate and Honor your Fire and Passion

Take a moment to contemplate your path, relationships, obstacles and the choices you are making in your life. Through the creative process you may discover answers that were unknown to you. Or perhaps, you may “See” things in a different light.  Insights and a deeper awareness may be discovered through just making time to “STOP”, taking time to “CALM” the mind and  to “CREATE” ~ Art has a Power beyond Words.

                                     “Create Your Plate”


                            Cost: $25.00 includes materials*, please bring a journal


                                                          Class size 2 participants

An inner reflection and self inquiry:

  • “How full is my plate in life right now?”
  • “Does it spillith over?”
  • “Do I leave space OPEN for Myself?

Life is hectic for most of us. When so busy, it may be hard to figure out ways to incorporate time to nourish one’s body, mind and spirit. Make some time for yourself  to reflect upon your daily life, to note areas that consume energy or weigh one down, and take a look at creative ways to open more space up for YOU!

In this workshop, participants will decoupage a glass plate using imagery, symbols, objects from nature, words and colorful paints to create a visual representation that will inspire the positive changes desired for oneself. Through the creative process acknowledge your dreams and make a conscious commitment to omit at least one thing that is no longer serving your highest potential. There is only so much time in the day for YOU. Fill your plate with ways to nourish your soul.

What can I do NOW to Create more space to manifest what I really want in my life!

Making small changes can be profound. Start with 10 minutes a day…

Action is KEY!

*To make artwork more meaningful and personal participants are encouraged to gather personal items such as, photographs and other imagery (magazine pics), inspiring words from magazines or newspapers, decorative papers, and flowers and plant life from nature. Flowers and leaves can be pressed in advance. (Magazines, newspapers, decorative papers and plant life will be available)
