21-Day Journaling with Collage Online Course
“If you own your story you get to write the ending.” Brené Brown
And what better way to tap into the mysteries and revelations of YOUR story than with the potent magic of journaling. But not just journaling by itself, but with the incredibly powerful and revelatory process of Contemplative Collage.
In this self-paced online course you'll learn how to use the magic of word and image to reveal messages of your innermost self. Over the course of 21 image-laden days, you'll get to discover what themes and stories are playing out in your life, and learn how to not only become aware of those stories, but how to begin directing the show!
And with us rolling into the year 2020, we’re going to be doing something special, playing with the idea that "Hindsight is 20/20." For this class we’ll be working Week One on stories from our Past, Week Two, we'll explore how those stories apply to our Present, and Week Three, we’ll see how to use what we’ve discovered to create an intention-filled and creatively satisfying Future.
The format is simple. Each morning beginning Wednesday, January 1st, I'll send participants
an email with that day's collage image. Along with the image I'll provide a writing prompt allowing you to “step into” that image to see what thoughts, stories, memories it triggers for you. Next, you'll use what you've just discovered to journal stories from your personal history.
Included with the class is participation is an optional FB private group page where you can share any writing, insights or aha's you’ve uncovered with other participants as well as celebrate in theirs. Following the project you can take what you've learned and apply it to your own collages, or go deeper into any written treasures you’ve unearthed.
This is the perfect creative challenge for artists, writers, journalers, those in transition, or
ANYone who is seeking a way to tap into the mysteries and messages within. Here are the details:

Curious but not convinced? Here’s what people are saying about the course:
"Dante, I've got to tell you, I followed your prompts every day for the whole 21 days. It
was a fabulous experience. Some mornings, quite honestly, I didn't feel real
inspired to start journaling, but each and every time I was given tremendous
insight. You offer a wonderful gift and the visuals add so very much to the
deepening understanding. I find it hard to find the words to express the
insight-fully reflective experience this provided me." Maria A.
"Dante is a delightful teacher who inspires creativity, spontaneity, and fun. I found her class insightful and informative. My fellow classmates made the class even better. I'm ready to sign up for another class." Amanda C.
“The timing could have not been better in my life. The facilitation, thoughtful responsiveness,
and guidance for the journey provided by Dante has been wonderful as has been
the group experience (the latter of which is optional). I highly recommend CC
for anyone who is ready for creative self-exploration in fun, visual, and
kinesthetic ways!” Mary R.
