I invite you to check out my Holiday special at www.healingdollway.com.
When you purchase my book The Healing Doll Way you will receive the 12 Healing Doll Way cards for free.
On December 1, 2022, the window opens for signing up for the yearlong Healing Doll Way online class. I often suggest new students sign up for Discovery first.
Discovery includes an Introduction, the Inner Selfie (Heroine Doll). and The Guardian/Gatekeeper (January 29 – March 26)
This section focuses on identifying your beliefs about healing, building resources, and moving through and completing process assignments. You will learn about and practice making feeling and healing dolls, as well as be introduced to the visual journaling techniques that will aid in making your personal healing doll.
At the end of Discovery, you can decide whether you want to continue to the remainder of the year.
You will find all the details about the class here https://www.healingdollway.com/healing-doll-way-class.html

What Students Have Said about the yearlong class
"I learned that it's about process not product. It's the process that heals our connection to the doll we have made. When my doll was finished, I noticed a subtle shift but can't really describe it. The doll is a reflection of something in me."
"I think this is a great course on many levels. It encourages creativity and self-expression without judgment which is so helpful. It is a kind of 'sympathetic magic' that really facilitates healing. I took it because I wanted to explore the nature of creativity in 'me', and I learned a lot about this very thing--and, in the process I made a few dolls I love!"
"I love the class creative processes, especially neuro tangles and making intuitive paper dolls, they all tapped into my inner child.
I learned that making art and healing dolls is a process and that they tap into the core of who I am, and that I intuit a lot of information about what I am making.
I would like to learn much more about art journaling in trying to be more self-aware. And learn to create more rapidly without as much thinking and discussion with myself.
I liked how Barb allows her intuition and imagination to create what needs to be taught or presented on the Zoom classes calls. She often hit on just what I needed to hear or learn. Barb uses the book as a foundation and guide and embellishes it with creative activities designed around what she perceives are the needs of the group. I loved her expressions of wonder at things that would come up unexpectedly.
I feel more whole, less full of holes than I did at the beginning of the class, and I feel that if I had not taken the class that I would be in a darker place today. I loved the community of women on Zoom classes and in the Open Studios. I wish I had taken more advantage of Open Studios, and plan to in the future because there was so much learning and sharing. I am thankful and grateful."
