Rise Above Club: Self-Love

Explore each chapter of Whitney Freya’s book, Rise Above: Free Your Mind One Brushstroke at a Time, with me.  As a certified Creatively Fit Coach, I have trained with Whitney and worked through her book twice (so far).  In this session, we will focus on Self-Love.

Many of us were not taught or encouraged to love ourselves unconditionally.  “In the process (of painting and conversation), you will observe your inner critic, your inner perfectionist, your inner ‘poor me’.  You can take back your power and tell those voices that they have been misinformed”, writes Whitney Freya.

Each session of the Rise Above Club includes discussion of the featured chapter, time to paint or work in an art journal, and meaningful conversation in a supportive space.

Create art to create the change you want in your life!

Rise Above Book Club Intro

I’m super-excited to be bringing Whitney Freya’s Rise Above: Free Your Mind One Brushstroke at a Time to York!  During this introductory session, I’ll be sharing why I’m leading this “more than a book club” book club (hint:  It inspired me to make major changes in my life.) I’ll also give an overview of the chapters and a hands-on experience to give you a taste of what is in store.


It will be a 12-week course the second and fourth Thursdays from June 13 to Dec 12 (no meeting on Thanksgiving), from 5:30-7:30pm.  It’s more than a book club because it is discussion AND guided open studio time.  Bring a canvas (16″x20″) and I’ll provide the paint and brushes.  No art experience is needed.  This is about the process of self-discovery and awareness not a product, although, you will find that what is revealed on the canvas is perfect for where you are now.


Cost is $240 through June 13th if you purchase the package.  Otherwise, it is $30 per session.  Come for one… but you’ll want to come for all.  Register at Brownpapertickets.com.  Tickets are non-refundable.


Topics include:  Freedom, Self-Love, Presence, Abundance, Fearlessness, Clarity, Intuition, Spaciousness, Peace, Ease and Grace, Joy, and Personal Symbols.


Email me for details or if you have any questions.  Intro session is FREE.  This is a wonderful way to do some self-awareness exploration but is not to be seen as therapy.
