Registration for my annual 12-month One Little Word® workshop has begun. Register before December 31, 2016 to receive the early-bird price of $26 (after December 31st the price is $31).
The workshop will operate much like it has for the past six years (started in 2011) - monthly creative prompts to encourage you to connect with your word via writing, photography, and collage. This year I'll be working in the 6x8 format like I did last year. Please note that in an effort to simplify my processes that this is the last year I will provide printables in the 8.5x11 size.
Past students have reported learning about celebrating progress rather than perfection, about the power of focusing on a single word and the impact that can have in your life, about how many little moments make up the patterns of our lives, about thinking of your future self as you make decisions today, about how your own journey is important, about how to step back into the story of your own life as an active participant, about learning what you most need from yourself, and about the power of coming back again and again to your original intentions as a means of reflection and forward movement.
In addition this year we are offering a gifting option if you would like to give the gift of this workshop. On the workshop shop page you'll find a link to "Gift This Class" under the orange "Add To Cart" button. After clicking through to purchase you will receive an email with a PDF that includes a one-time use code and link for your recipient to gain access to the classroom. Giving the gift of education is fun and meaningful and lasts all throughout the year.
As an enrollment bonus we will be including the One Little Word® Digital Main Kit + Action Cards + Reflection Cards (currently only available in the class) when you join the workshop (details about the physical kit can be found below). Just a heads up that this digital kit includes PNG files, not PDF files.
Is this your first time hearing about One Little Word®?
The premise is simple - choose a word to invite into your life for the coming year. You live with it. You let it speak to you. You might even follow where it leads. There are so many possibilities and no right or wrong way to approach the adventure. Sometimes words have come to me out of the blue and other years I've gone looking for what it was I most wanted to bring into my life.

I'll be sharing my 2017 word after Christmas.
