Chapter IX Journal Pages
Learn how to playfully journal & collage your way through transition, confusion & doubt
What if you could gain clarity around what you really want by leveraging creative, playful energy? That's exactly what we'll do during your Chapter IX & Thriving journey!
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ FIVE STARS
As we shift roles, change places and move through time, three questions recur as we evolve... Who am I now? Why am I here? What do I want? Find the answers to these questions and more through your journal pages.
Playing with words, color and collage is a delightful way to explore big life transitions. On the surface you'll be creating a mixed media art journal with writing insights. Below the surface you'll be discovering how to capture the new story that wants to emerge.
The story is always ours to write. Whether we are aware of it or not, whether we acknowledge it or not, we are writing our story every single day of our lives. In this course I'll help you uncover your aligned, thriving story for this stage of your life.
In this creative and empowering course I share a visioning process as well as sparks of inspiration to help you capture what's calling and how your new chapter will unfold. Throughout this course I'll share audios, videos and playsheets to help you look at your transition from many angles and in a very creative way.
"This workshop is fun, and you learn cool techniques to get thoughts down on paper, along with creative use of different materials and techniques. Leslie is energetic, upbeat and inspiring. I’m a bit more artistic than I thought, and I really like white gel pens."
- Melissa Q, Frankfort, Michigan
"This is a terrific workshop. I added some squibbles and color to my journal this morning and bought kid's glue last night. I've been journaling for years, but these techniques are really changing my approach."
- Chas Donald, Petoskey, Michigan
Your Chapter IX Journey
You'll work your way through your Wouldn't It Be Nice big vision playbook, where you'll redefine what's important NOW.
You'll purchase a mixed media journal (available HERE), decorate the cover, and learn how to fill the pages. I'll share my top 10 journaling techniques along with structure and pacing so the blank page doesn't scare you away. In the process, you'll discover a new way to express yourself and gain powerful insights about what's working, what's not, and what's whispering for your attention. (No writing experience required.)
You'll discover the power of visual journaling — a creative way to cover your pages with marks, crayons, pencils, ink, markers, stencils, stamps, photos, images, ephemera and much more. I'll share my six favorite visual journaling techniques that'll inspire a new way of experimenting in your journal and processing life. (No art experience required.)
You'll have fun as you paint and blop (ha; is that a word?)...
You'll create colorful backgrounds and learn how to add texture and interest with paint, stencils, stamps, washi tape and ephemera. You'll also learn how to add reflective writing — sometimes with pencils or white markers that blend the words right into the page so no one else can read them...
Always you're playing with words and images, processing emotions, relieving stress, and discovering the art of self-expression. You'll be creating pages just for you in the comfort of your own space, and you'll gradually capture the new story that wants to emerge.. Trust me; this is powerful and FUN... and who doesn't want that?!?
Note: The course may not be a straight line from A to Z for you. Perhaps you'll start with the transition tools and move to a visual journaling spark. Or perhaps you'll jump to a journaling spark. Or perhaps you'll go straight through from the top and start all over again. It's all good!

You can go it on your own, but I know from working with clients around the world that that's a lonely, isolating way to move forward (and moving forward will be painfully slow). The best way to transition is to learn from someone who has experienced the confusion and uncertainty you're feeling now (been there, done that). Adding a twist of creativity brings joy to the transition process. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, your journal and pen, and join me for an unexpected adventure.
In this experiential workshop, you will learn a creative way to:
- Discover, clarify, and align with what's calling at this stage of your life.
- Learn how to say, “No more,” to what’s not working.
- Identify what’s blocking you from achieving what you really want.
- Stake a claim on your values, passions and new life story.
- PLAY with your creativity, process emotions, and relieve stress.
- Add heart to your endeavors as you make space for the new story that wants to emerge.
When you sign up at the ENROLL NOW button at the bottom of the page, you'll get immediate access to the course. And you'll be on your way to big shifts and empowering insights.

"After retiring from my nursing career and recovering from breast cancer treatment, I was ready for a new chapter in my life but couldn't imagine how to pull it together. Leslie's coaching was invaluable in helping me gain clarity, break through fear, and embrace my calling. I'm beyond excited to offer a safe place for women to explore authenticity, spiritual alignment, and her conscious creation of a beautiful life."
~ Pam Stevenson, RN & Big Hearted Collaborator
"I needed some help and guidance as I was preparing to retire from my 25-year career as a school social worker, so I turned to coaching. I had transformations that I would have never pictured. In a nutshell, I retired on my own terms, became a Master swimmer, started caring for my grandson, and best yet, I became an adjunct professor at a local university. My life has certainly changed for the best, and I attribute that to the aha moments I experienced with Leslie. I learned how to let go and honor the past so I could move forward. I highly recommend coaching with Leslie."
~ Terry Bond-Manville, Adjunct Professor in Social Work, Eastern Michigan University
"When my marriage fell apart after 40 years, I was left wondering how I would support myself. I didn’t recognize my God-given gifts, and I certainly didn’t have the confidence to start a business. Leslie helped me see the possibilities and launch my life-long dream to cater events, teach classes, and delight people with gourmet foods. I couldn't be happier."
~ Jacque Dallenbach, Special Events Director, Live Life Events
