An entry point into visual poetry, conceptual photography and deepening into yourself.
This is a 5 week online ecourse with live video classes every week.
Course starts July 22, 2019
This course is a starting point or a jump start.
This course is the place to enter what I call the portal of unlimited creative potential.
I believe that all of us have creative expression inside of us. Those who believe they aren’t talented enough or creative enough just need the opportunity to feel supported enough to try again. Somewhere along the way a teacher or a parent or an adult or friend said something to you that made you shut down your creative voice. You compare yourself to others and don’t measure up. You feel they have something you don’t. That’s actually not totally true. Begin Deepening is a way to tap into what’s right underneath all of those beliefs to the creativity that’s waiting to bubble up and out. If you’ve been actively creating your work and feel the need to deepen… this is the place. It’s for all of us to begin deepening at whatever stage we are inside creative expression.
Learn to use your creative voice to reconnect to self, to your authentic voice, to others and to the work you’re meant to create and put out into the world.
You’re here on this planet to share your unique gifts. You hold onto beliefs ( known or buried ) that block you from opening to that possibility. Beliefs of non-enough, too much, too late, you have nothing to share of value, you can’t figure it out, self doubt gets in the way and you wait for proof that never comes, someone to help you believe in yourself, but you have so much so-called evidence of past failed attempts at expressing yourself inside your fullness that you feel somewhat broken. And yet.. There is a sense that there’s something more. There is. A lot more.
I’ve created this space because I’ve been there..and I this work help set me fr
This work is a way to deepen a connection to self and to everything.
Having a bad day? Pour it into the work. Feeling confused and stuck? Use it as your starting point. Nervous and excited about a new relationship? Use it as fuel to rev up the engines of creativity. You don’t have to search very far for content. It’s whatever happens to be swirling around in your head.
This work is potent and powerful and can crack you open as it has done for me…over and over and over again.
This Alchemy. Taking the internal dialogue that no longer serves you and turning it into gold. Being with yourself and your feelings about yourself and facing it in a sacred, safe and loving way and learning how to show up fully. Creating beauty with the beauty of your being. Even if you don’t quite see the beauty just yet.
Who this is for:
People who want to learn how to use photography to create visual poetry.
You’re a beginner in photography, but you know how your camera ( or your iphone ) works.
You’re a photographer ready to take your work to the next level.
You’re open to considering the spiritual aspects inside the practice and process of photography.
You are male, female, gender non-binary, all sexual orientations, colors, preferences, in recovery from drugs and alcohol or not, open, compassionate, non-judgy humans.
You’ve started or have been on a journey of your own personal development and spiritual growth in some way.
You’re ready to dive in and make your work.
The idea of expansion turns you on.
You are not ready for this course if:
You aren’t ready to take your work to the next level.
You’re not willing to be a learner.
You want to heavily process your past or present inside this group rather than making your work and speaking through your images.
You don’t want to expand your capacity to create beautiful images.
You don’t want to fall more in love with your life and with yourself.
You'll receive a new email with video content delivered every Monday and every Thursday for the 5 weeks of the course. You’ll receive a Video in each email with new content and a new prompt to explore. We will meet weekly on Wednesdays on Zoom as a class. Each person sends in their work for the week and I share the work inside this video classroom so we can all see what you’re working on and I can give you feedback. Everyone gets a turn sharing their work with the group. If you want more 1:1 time with me you can add private mentoring session during the duration of the course for an additional fee. Mentoring sessions can help guide you and give feedback on your work and provide added support at any point during the course.
( For those who have taken the course before and want to revisit the materials, we are no longer providing a Facebook Group for this course as has been done in the past. )
This is not therapy, but it’s therapeutic.
Your art is the voice that will speak for you. Processing on a deeper level needs to happen outside the group with a licensed professional to do such work. I’m just not trained for that type of work.
It’s $497 for this is 5 week eCourse that includes 10 photo prompts, 5 live video calls, feedback weekly from Catherine on your work and a community of like minded people.
