This self-paced, pre-recorded course is designed to acknowledge the process that we are in, whether good or bad. Once we acknowledge where we are, we can draw learning from our process and find ways to shift where appropriate.
Each of the seven days you will be given an assignment and asked to allot about 20 minutes to contemplate the assignment, take a photograph, and write a reflection.
We begin with observing the world around us. As the days progress we will deepen into observing our inner selves. Finally circling back to observing how we feel in relation to the world around us.
The end result of this course will be that you will have tapped into a deep reservoir of information and emotion that can be used as a catalyst for growth, change, and creation!
Materials needed: pen, paper, Internet access, camera (smartphone camera is fine!) and an open mind.
Time: At least 20 minutes per day for 7 days
