A brand new Jenafer Joy course for 2022

Embark on a year long inspired inquiry into your own emotions and dreams. What if what you are experiencing aren't simply random waves, but are in fact a concerted and choreographed current carrying you towards a personally significant shore? Let's chart a course with the prevailing winds!

Take the helm starting January 1st

For this series we'll use the length of the year to powerfully explore the information held in your waking and dreaming waters.  

Each week this inquiry will gently bring your attention to the subtle emotional messages of your waking life and nudge you deeper into conversation with the dreams that visit at night. 

Our weekly dedication to listening and tracking will build a deepening rapport, friendship and conversation with the symbolic and nuanced  voice of your inner waters.

My style of art journaling naturally opens the voice of the intuition in an effortless manner - bringing spontaneous epiphanies and surprising momentum.

Sometimes it points to subtle shifts of perception. Sometimes it points our future into a whole new direction. Your task is simply to show up with pen, scissors, glue... and listen. The winds will take care of the rest.

Registering for Navigator gives you and a guest of your choice permanent access to this course as it unfolds and forever afterward. You can engage in the course solo in your journal or participate in the community - sharing photos of your journal spreads in our Community or adding your dreams to our new Night Poems room!

The course will be created in real time with a video prompt delivered to your email every week. Navigator is doable in an hour a week and is perfect for all skill levels.Instructions are peppy & personal and include experimenting with collage, painting, doodling, writing. All the videos are as short as a good song so you get inspired and go right to your journal!

You can bring a friend as your guest so you can share the journey. Or lean into the online supportive community!  What cross pollination will arise as we traverse these inner seas? I can't wait to find out!

As a map for our emotional inquiries, we'll be using the 13 chapters of Brene Brown's new book "Atlas of the Heart" as inspiration. We'll spend four weeks with each chapter. You won't need to read the book in order to do the prompts but it would be a lovely add on. I absolutely love Brene's stand: "keeping it awkward, brave and kind." If you don't know her work I highly recommend it.

For those who are part of the Intentional Creativity Community, this course is included in Shiloh Sophia's Maverick course. If you are registering for that course, there's no need to purchase here separately. Email me and I'll also add it to your library here.

Letter under the Long Night Moon (12/18/21)

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, the lengthening of the nights coupled with the end of the calendar year catalyzes a natural turning inwards and a re-dedication towards *whatever* is important to the soul.  But as days lengthen and the moons cycle, I've found that I need a structure and a regular practice of self inquiry in order to keep the conversation alive.

 What are the practices that you have in place for deeply listening?

I have two:
ART and DREAMS

Art, in the way that I teach it and practice it myself, is a dance with intuition. It's not about having something planned show up on the page but allowing the page to reflect back something unexpected. Whether I'm following a line of the pen as it does a wonky self portrait and finding information in the poetic anomalies, or closing my eyes tight and letting random image and word be an oracle, I use my art to let my own "under inner" say it's part.

And equally important to me is an ongoing conversation with my dreams. I have a longstanding practice of writing my dreams in poem form. And looking back over the decades, the times in my life when I've felt the most myself are also the times when I'm in a daily rhythm with remembering my dreams. 

I recently began a dream class (with the folks at This Jungian Life) and in the opening talk they shared a sentence that felt so true to me:

"Dreams always tell us something we don't already know."

This sentence floored me and I wonder if reading it, it stops you in your tracks as well. Because what if there is an inner knowing showing up in dreams and equally available in art that has ALL the information that we need about what we most care about and don't already consciously know. If this is true, then following the instructions in our art and dreams will take us right off the map and into the most interesting terrain for our soul.  If you're with me here, this idea is completely and totally terrifying and inspiring...terri-spiring.  Because the soul is ready to head out right now. And all our programing and culture indoctrination immediately starts sounding high alert. Very juicy arena!

Do you have a sense of what might be in those "off the map" lands for you personally? I'm guessing you have a tease but maybe not much more... Perhaps it has an associated emotion or flavor of longing, maybe a color, a tug in a specific place in your body. It likely feels daring, and smells mostly of hope with a barely perceptible undercurrent of frustration. It's somehow connected to the hardest spot and also the hungriest spots... If it had a word, what would yours be?

Luckily we don't need to know exactly what we'll find in order to set off.

In Navigator we'll be exploring this terrain with emotions.  Why emotions? Because emotions are your built in gauge of whether something is important. Whether your reaction is positive or negative it's still a clear indicator of what has juice for your soul. So we can use the emotions to pinpoint where in our waking life we should dig in and use our dreams and our art to access to that information we don't already know! Yes, terri-spiring.

"Jena, I'm incredibly grateful to have found you and this immensely healing work. Thank you with all my heart. I have had such shifts, so many gifts, and so much healing.  I'm so glad I jumped into the posting and sharing with the other wonderful women traveling on this path with me. This is grace beyond measure. I am in awe of your creations, and of your ability to hold such space for all of us. Your strength in being able to hold me has kept me going during the most painful emotional times. What is brought up is always what's needed to be healed. And it has moved mountains for me."

"Jenafer Joy’s Approach is by far the lightest and the deepest method I have experienced. She leads gently but firmly, engaging even my grumpiest parts in the game. A rare gift! Solo divers are welcome and secure a safe space of private witnessing with her gentle, witty guidance. But she also maintains group energy incredibly well, strengthening synergies and supporting each one of us as if we were truly unique to her and in the world. I have been relying on Jenafer for my own balance for quite some time now, and she keeps surprising me, with her creativity, with her amazing cultural, spiritual & psychological information, and also with her true generosity of spirit."
