SC Love Confirm
Thanks for signing up for my one week Story Circles-LOVE class kicks off, I am so excited. I just want to touch on a few things as we prepare to circle, literally and visually together.
This is about experience and journey, not outcome. We start by working on paper creating drawings. However, it is not about creating art. It is about connecting with yourself and working towards fuller self expression. It's about having fun and learning along the way!
You will need some paper, any paper will work. You can use fancy art paper, the kids' construction paper, backs of old documents or plain copy paper. Use what you have on hand to start. You can always get something different as we move forward if you want to.
If you have specific art materials you like to use, great. If you don't, that's great too. A pencil or a ballpoint pen is fine to begin. I love markers and watercolor paint, crayons from my kiddos' coloring box or highlighters from the junk drawer.
A box or book is fine. Cardboard or notebook covers, greeting cards and envelopes work well too. If you have a ruler, great, but it's not necessary.
This is not a required item, but if you were going to buy just one thing for this class, this should be it. There is something magical about plugging into a point and creating the geometry of the circle as you guide the compass around the center. If you do not have a compass, you can trace existing circular objects in your space.
If you want to purchase a compass you can find one almost anywhere with school supplies. I have several $4 varieties purchased at drug stores when I've been traveling and forgotten to pack the nicer one I use at home.
You will want to plan on devoting 20 minutes a day this week if possible. That being said, This is a course that you will have access to forever so pace yourself, do what you can, pick up where you leave off. The process is more about the intention of sitting down and engaging with it versus any finished product.
I will be providing a link to a page of the entire course when it concludes so you can return to it time and time again.
Again, this course is about intention and connection to yourself so listen and do the amount of circling that is right for you in any given time frame.
As mentioned above, this class is about connecting and expressing and having fun:) Read the emails, follow the prompts and all of this should happen. Sometimes it is fun to do with a friend or family member so if there is someone you know who might like the experience please pass the info along.
Shoot me a message if you have any questions or comments before Monday
I am SO looking forward to it all.
Full of gratitude as I prepare to share this powerful practice with you!
