I give talks on a variety of subjects, including my Year of Fearless Love (and how it completely changed the trajectory of my life); Self-Love (why we struggle to love ourselves and how to make it a daily practice); and Creativity (living a creative life and trusting the creative process). I approach my topics with honesty, humor, and a genuine desire to engage the audience in a conversation that leaves us all better off. The world needs more conversation.

Art of Self-Love: Gratitude Workshop (2 hours)
Studies show that creativity is an effective wellness practice, and that cultivating gratitude can have tremendous benefits on the quality of your life - so, why not combine both ideas in a single workshop! I’ll be talking about self-love (why it’s so hard and so very important), how to make self-love a practice, and specifically, how GRATITUDE can be the easiest, most effective, life-changing self-love tool of all. Then we’ll switch gears a bit, do some magical art tricks, and create beautiful, personally meaningful gratitude wheels so that you can launch your own 30-day gratitude project when you get home.
I can provide all the necessary materials, or this can be done as an Art Journal class, in which students come with their own journals.
Optionally included with this workshop is a signed copy of my illustrated creative journal, Find Your Awesome, A 30-Day Challenge To Fall In Love With Your Playful, Imaginative & Colorful Self.
