Cosmic Smash Booking is a mash-up between art journaling and Intentional Creativity. Transform an ordinary composition book into an intuitively created work of art using words, images, color and simple yet powerful mindfulness-meditation techniques.
Gain new insights and discover fresh possibilities as you offer yourself healing and wisdom.
In an initial one day session, you will create your own sacred container – a Cosmic Smash Book – and learn ways to use it for self-reflection and self-inquiry. Infused with your own energy and intention, this book will be a portal to a new world, a new view, a new you – whatever you wish it to be. It will free you for creative expression, as you leave your expectations and inner critic at the door.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF COSMIC SMASH BOOKING? WHAT DOES A CLASS ENTAIL?
I have about a dozen beautiful journals on my book shelves with a page or two that I have written on. I had this idea that I needed to be deeply profound and poetic when writing or I was wasting pages. Beautiful, smooth, lovely white pages. I just couldn’t put the sometimes ugly, contradictory, confused musings of my mind into those beautiful books. And I certainly didn’t know how to use them to hear my heart. How many sort of started journals do you have lying around?
When I was introduced to Cosmic Smash Booking by its founder, Kat Geller, while completing my Intentional Creativity certification, journaling completely changed for me. It broke through my perfectionism, connected me to my heart and intuition and made journaling a gorgeous, inward journey. I knew I had to share it with you! Each Cosmic Smash Book journey follows the same basic steps, sometimes with minor modifications.
We begin with a Red Thread circle to create a safe, sacred container for our gathering. During this time we talk about the Intention that we will be focusing on and infusing our smash books with during this workshop. Following the Red Thread, circle we move to a guided meditation that helps us to form and realize what the workshops intention means to us. The meditation may also provide words or images to help us express that meaning.
After journaling about our meditation experience we move to the creation of our magical smash book where we will place our intention, move through making several foundational pages using paint, glue, images we cut out of magazines, words and energy. Cosmic Smash Booking is a mash up of journaling and collage using the guidance of Intentional Creativity. We use ordinary cardboard journals to create a beautiful place for you to explore and express your inner world.
Each book is uniquely yours and once you have completed a few pages your will be hooked! Smash Booking can be as private or public as you choose to make it. We will write in our journals but, when needed, we will cover our thoughts in images, paint and new stories. Each page holds an inquiry you made and your hearts answer to it. Only you can decipher its symbolism.
