Honouring My Inner Child
Welcome to my expressive art course for those who wish to make art, relax deeply and learn about themselves.
She was a galaxy, not one planet.
She was a forest, not one tree.
She was an ocean, not just one river.
But the world had told her to close and be as small as could be.
But she woke up one day, longing for that little girl.
Who knew she was living in a small corner and not her entire inner world.
And so she slowly unlocked each door, deciding she wanted to play, live, go wild, no longer hide.
And that little girl was finally free,
the one who carried a dancing universe of galaxies, forests and oceans inside

I didn’t want to simply tell my Inner Child's story, I wanted to connect deeply with her. I wanted to meet her with compassion and empathy and to acknowledge her journey.
I realised through my experience of Honouring My Inner Child that previously I knew her story in a cognitive, 'thinking' way. I felt many things for her, but I hadn’t allowed myself to really connect and really know her.
On reflection, I had spent time judging my Inner child, viewing her with Critical and Cultural eyes, analysing her Theoretically, focusing on what society would call 'weaknesses' but I had never truly met with her from my Heart.
Now you too have the opportunity to Honour Your Inner Child through my gentle, compassionate, creative process.
...Many say my videos replace my physical presence and they feel very connected to me even though they have never met me in person. They feel I am there alongside them.
...Deeply rich, creative, expressive art helps deepen your awareness of Self to live a more satisfying, joyful life
...I bring my own powerful brand of stress & anxiety reduction through a deeply mindful, meditative process in a unique and truly amazing way
