The 30-Day Journey Within

Explore the Power of Authentic & Creative Journaling

Join creative guide and happiness catalyst, Kiala Givehand as she takes you on a 30 day journey of self discovery and exploration.

Part journaling course, part art class, part woo woo, Kiala brings together all the things she loves and uses to keep her on her creative path. The class pulls lessons from a variety of places and inspiration.

Each day a new lesson will open up to you and you will discover another way of being in conversation with yourself as you learn and grow.

This journey is NOT for the faint of heart. It requires you to commit and do the work. Change does not come from simply thinking about change. We must DO.

This is a class for doers and dreamers.

This is a class for journaling folks and artsy folks.

It's a class where poetry meets painting and they dance under the light of the moon, sun, and stars.

Join today and get your first lesson immediately.

Hello Beautiful Creative You!
I'm happy you're here.

I'm Kiala Givehand, a mixed media book artist, creative business strategist, and workshop leader originally from Florida, temporarily living in Northern Georgia (by way of Oakland, California), where I reside with my husband, Damon.

For almost 20 years, I taught English, Language Arts, and Creative Writing at every level, while simultaneously traveling the U.S. delivering workshops and presentations to educators. While I still travel occasionally to work with teachers and writers, I now enjoy working one-on-one and in small groups with students, teachers, artists, writers, and creative entrepreneurs who want to identify their passions so they can embrace their gifts and talents through the empowered expression of their deepest desires. I do this work as a Creative Business Strategist because I love helping others find the thing that fills them with joy.

I've done a lot of things in my short 40+ years on this planet, but I'm most proud of raising my nephew Treavor, and listening to my inner wisdom by doing the things that make me come alive. Constructing handmade books and art journals is one of those things that allow me to feel A L I V E!!! And I'd love to have you join me on this journey. CLICK HERE if you want to see a gallery of some of my art journal pages.

I cherish every single day and treat life as one amazing adventure. I play with paint and watercolor, fold paper into books, write poetry, short fiction, & creative non-fiction, and sometimes I blog. But always, every single day, I journal and do something that I feel is creative. Oh!! And did I mention that I'm the proud owner of a fabulous collection of fountain pens? (I know. Geek alert!)

Join me and let's create something beautiful, TODAY!!
