None at all, in any way. Whether you’re an art major or you’ve never touched a glue stick in your adult life, an avid visual journaler or someone who struggles to express themselves, this course will guide you into more self-awareness, expression, and clarity no matter who you are or what your artistic ability is.

This course is about soul work, not arts and crafts. Self-awareness is an extraordinarily powerful tool. I believe that if this course is right for you, you’ll know. If you want to take control of what’s controlling you, find clarity about who you are and what you want, and navigate everything that makes you anxious in a healthier way, then this course is right for you. If you’re still not sure, contact me! I’d be happy to answer any questions you have about what’s included and who it’s for. Plus, I offer a 100% 15-day money back guarantee, so if you decide it’s not a good fit, there’s no risk.

Please move through this course at whatever pace is best for you. You can watch the videos all the way through without journaling (some students binge watch) along and then go back to reabsorb the content later when you’re ready to put pen to paper. Or you could break out your journal from the beginning and move through each chapter slowly as you follow the techniques. Spend a few weeks or even a few months digging into the content and engaging in the self-discovery process. If a chapter stands out to you or is particularly difficult, come back to it again and sit with the question, “Why is this chapter sticking with me in this way?” The practice is about soul work, not art. Take your time.

Don’t take it from me. Take it from one of my students:

“There are other art-journaling courses out there. Some of them are incredible. This one is different.

Betsy focuses on soul work, self-awareness, and self-guidance. This is not about the craft or the technique (though she does teach all about that), it’s about the tool that leads you to a sharper awareness of yourself and your life path.

This course, far beyond making pretty pages, has the ability to reconnect you to who you really are. It has the ability to shed light on everything you’ve been stuffing down. It has the ability to neurologically and emotionally rewire you for health.”

This course has the potential to increase your self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and emotional agility. You will walk away knowing who you are and what you want, how to express yourself, how to manage your thoughts and emotions, and how to make decisions that are best for you for the rest of your life.

Practically: You’ll get lifetime access to 15 Videos (3.5 hours of content), 12 Teaching Chapters, 1 Bonus Chapter, 13 PDF Worksheets, 1 North Star Prompts Pack, and a few Resource + Supply Lists.

I’ve been teaching this material for over a decade, and I know how powerful it has been in my life and in the lives of my students. This offering, in the form of this course, is perhaps the richest existing version of what I teach so far. I cannot exaggerate the value of learning the art of self-awareness journaling.

There is neurological evidence that journaling is great for the brain. Watch the interview with Dr. Jerome D. Lubbe, Functional Neurologist,  to find out how.

Course Overview

In this course, I’ll hand you practical techniques you can use to access the deep inner work you’ll be doing. You’ll play with principles like color, line, shape, composition, movement, and more. Each of the techniques will be connected to an element of soul work. In each video, I’ll teach a technique or two and talk about how I use them to access emotions, promote clarity, and make more honest life decisions.

What is soul work, why is it important, and how do we do it? Betsy discusses emotional intelligence, emotional agility, and self-awareness through the lens of visual journaling as a practice.

Betsy shows us one of her recent visual journals and discusses the process of using this medium as a method for soul work.

Betsy gives all her best tips for how to make this practice sustainable, shows us her toolkit, and provides all the necessary resources. This video will address concerns about how to maintain the practice, take it home, and make it sustainable.

Betsy talks about ritual and preparing a space. Then she discusses what to consider when selecting a book and shows examples of each.

Betsy talks about risk and safety, the importance of making this practice feel safe, and how to use envelopes to do it. This video will introduce the first technique—adding envelopes. We will introduce the idea of safety and talk about the importance of skipping the first page, as well as creating safe containers to keep our secrets in.

Betsy talks about letter writing and how it can be a tool used to access both emotional intelligence and emotional agility. This video will teach students the technique of writing letters. This practice is supposed to invite them into accessing their voice, focusing their emotions, and getting in touch with deeper layers of themselves.

Betsy talks about how to choose colors by listening to ourselves, how to begin moving paint around the page, and the difference between blank and empty pages. This video is going to introduce the technique of moving paint across the page to create “empty” pages instead of blank pages. The soul work is to create an inviting space, listen to intuition, increase trust, and create movement towards self-discovery.

Betsy talks about how to create pages for lists and how it helps us with emotional intelligence. This video will teach the students how to use lists and shapes to create containers. They will draw something they’ve drawn since childhood in order to create familiarity and permission, and they’ll draw it with their left hand to get rid of the performance/perfectionism piece. The soul work is to help people move through their fear and give them safe spaces within their journals.

This video will teach students how to make and destroy ugly pages. This is a practice in giving ourselves permission, and focusing us on the soul work–the process–not the final product. Betsy talks about the importance and inevitability of ugly pages, how to engage with them practically, and what they mean for soul work

Betsy goes back to the first pages and talks about the meaning of setting an intention. This video will take the students back to page 1 and teach them how to set an intention. The soul work here is to listen to Self, and to create an intentional path forward.

Betsy talks about the barrier of handwriting, two ways to overcome it, and the necessity of managing perfectionism. This video will teach the power of handwriting and stream of consciousness. It will teach the technique of creating a font, and will address the fears around “i don’t like my handwriting”. The soul work is to access emotions. Betsy shows how she uses bold, italic, and regular fonts to reflect emotions and promote reflection.

Betsy shows how she uses bold, italic, and regular fonts to reflect emotions and promote reflection.

Betsy shows us how she curates text and images from magazines, and talks about the power of intuition in this process. This video will teach students how to engage with book pages, found poetry, and images to curate things that speak to them. The soul work here is listening to the inner voice and following intuition.

Betsy talks about what to do with a journal once it’s empty, and then what to do with it after you’ve engaged the process.

What's My Investment?

How much is a lack of clarity in your internal spaces costing you? How many times have you reacted to decisions poorly and regretted them later? How many times have you been frustrated by your own behavior but didn’t understand why you felt stuck? A lack of clarity may already be costing you a great deal.
