You can treat this call like a mini workshop – it’s just an hour long.
Get your sketchbook or journal and something to write with, as I lead you through a process of deep inner listening – one of the creativity skills we hone in all of the workshops.
It was fun to get to hear from several of you, and have the opportunity to talk a little bit about upcoming workshops.
Workshops mentioned on the call:
The illustration is by Lisa DeYoung, and these are the notes she sketched while on the call.
A few years ago, I sat next to Lisa at a conference and watched her take Sketchnotes in her journal. Fascinating – and so different from my own note taking.
It’s really like having a map of someone’s thought process. A visual guide to take you through the most important points.
I’ve always thought it would be fun for you, my readers (and listeners) to have illustrated notes to help you follow along with my talks – and immediately thought of Lisa.
She created this black and white version so you could color it in. You can print it out and take notes and make more doodles, or use this idea to create your own map.
Download a .pdf of Lisa’s notes – and let me know what you think. If you guys like this idea we’ll do more!
I’d also love to see your call notes – however you make them. Getting a peek inside someone else’s journal is such a gift.
Lisa DeYoung, aka the mountain mermaid, is a creative, independent spirit whose motto in life is Create, Play, Thrive.
When she’s not out exploring the trails she can often be seen pedaling around town with her colorful bag of journaling supplies. Embracing her creative life is an ongoing adventure, a journey that she loves and trusts more each year – and hopes to inspire others to do the same.
To help inspire others she has created the Daily Musings Journal — which provides a space for simple daily creative journaling practice. The Daily Musings Journal was born from her need for the perfect space her own personal practice. mountainmermaidstudios.com
Through Friday January 22, Lisa is offering a giveaway of a Daily Musings Journal on her blog. Check that out here.
