2012 - Your Awesome Year

Have you been over to visit Tinniegirl lately and checked out the amazing workshop that she has planned?

Here's all the details just in case you missed it!

From Cathy....

I've been absolutely busting to spill the beans on the super-secret-squirrel business that Louise Gale and I have been working on for the past couple of months.

I first met Louise in 2010 when I traveled to the USA for An Artful Journey Retreat.  By a stroke of good fortune we sat at the same table and spent an incredible 3 days painting, laughing, eating chocolate and connecting.  Louise is vibrant, funny, warm, engaging and full of the most fabulous energy.

We've been friends ever since the retreat and share a passion for art, for dreaming and for inspiring other souls in their journey.  When Louise told me that she was coming to Australia to visit I was so excited.  I am so looking forward to soaking up some of Louise's amazing energy.
It occurred to both of us that it would be fantastic fun for Louise and I to organise something special for Melbourne peeps {or anyone who can get to Melbourne to join us}.  I'm so pleased to unveil our very exciting project: 

Dream Board - August 2011

Are you ready to create Your Awesome Year in 2012?

Vision your dreams and plan an amazing year ahead in this one day in-person workshop with artists and dreamers Cathy Kirwan and Louise Gale.

Join Cathy, Louise and a lovely group of creative souls to get 2012 off to a great start.  Through visioning, creative exercises, meditations and tools to create “Your Awesome Year”, you will leave the workshop full of ideas, energy and focus.
