The Holistic Self by Maya GonzalezWriting Children's Books from the Holistic Self
Highly recommended as an introduction to all courses because it helps establish a holistic perspective of self and reality. Each of the three areas in this mini-course is attended to with video, worksheets, additional resources, books, how they connect to the other courses and deep trust that when we focus our creative power first in service to ourselves, what we create can change reality. This is true whether it’s children’s books, an indie press or solely a life well lived.

More about the Course Areas and Approach:
Children's Books Skills and Action
These courses focus on the physical process of creating story & art for a children's book and putting it out in the world through traditional or alternative means.
Beliefs & Intention
These courses focus on uncovering any limiting beliefs about ourselves or the world that hold us back from putting ourselves and our work out there. This is about full empowerment, not just about creating books.
Radical Self Love
While all courses have a touch of this, courses that specifically focus here challenge you to explore what it means to live the creative life and to fully live your life as your work of art.
Holistic Approach
All courses come from a holistic place, meaning they take into account the WHOLE person. A holistic approach is a mindset that takes into account the heart, the body, the mind, the spirit and the unknown as well as your community and societal experience to support the whole self. With the whole self on board the creative process deepens.
