Leap over Road bumps to Nature Journal more

March 7, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm PST

Leap over road bumps: What gets in your way and how to you move through?

What we’ll be doing:

Have you ever gotten stuck during your journaling? Drawing doesn’t look right? Hard to find time? Want to get better but not able to get in pencil miles? Old beliefs get in the way?

We’ll take a look some road bumps that slow us down or stop us from journaling, and how to break out of the pattern.

Please come share what you’ve done to get out, and hear how others in the community do to keep the pencil miles going!


Start at 9:30 am- end at 12 noon Pacific Daylight. Schedule:

  • Start with an introduction and demo of a topic
  • We log off the computer to nature journal outside in our own nearby nature,
  • Return to Zoom for sharing our discoveries and journal pages. ***This is THE BEST part- not to miss!!
